This pattern was updated in June 2013:

The 8 page pattern booklet includes new charts and schematics, plus the (complementary) pattern for the dollheid tam (which can also be purchased separately).

Mixing motifs and techniques from Shetland and Scandinavia, Paper Dolls is a sweet and simple-to-wear to design. The sweater pattern covers ten kids and women’s sizes from 24 to 42 ins while the accompanying Dollheid tam is a great way of testing out your colourwork skills.
