This pattern helps you create a detailed Aran sweater, like the ones pictured here. This fisherman-style Aran turtleneck is modeled after beautiful heirloom sweaters originally knitted in the islands of the same name close to Ireland.

The sweater may fit a variety of 14 inch dolls, but is specifically fitted to Helen Kish’s 14” Chrysalis Dolls. The sweater is completely open in the back for ease of dressing. The body is knit in one piece and separated at the arm holes. It has set-in sleeves, and the collar is picked up and knitted after the shoulders have been sewn together.

There are two options for the sleeves--one has cables and the other has cross-over diamongs.
