Doll Sweaters: a great way to use up odds and ends
I knit the sweater from this free pattern for my nieces' dolls. I was hoping I had enough of this blue for long sleeves, but this was as far as it stretched. I did not knit in buttonholes, because I think fastenings on doll clothing are a frustration to mothers of little girls and I love my sister.
Such a quick little project, it was perfect between blankets. I'm already eyeing up a few other little bits of yarn, because I have two nieces who are just starting out with their American Girl dolls and several tiny oddballs.
However, they will have to wait because I cast on a new blanket yesterday. Baby blue this time.
