I have been wanting to knit something for Anna for quite sometime now. One night we went on Ravelry together, and I tried to talk her into a few sweaters I was in love with. She did not like any of them. Not one.
Then we saw this one. The paperdoll sweater. I tried to contain my excitement and not say anything, hoping she would see it and think she had picked it out.
Well, it worked. She fell in love with the "dolly sweater."
It is a tad big for her because the smallest size is a six, and she is a four. A very tiny, skinny four. I don't mind though, that just means she will be able to wear it for two or three years instead of one.
I had the lovely green and brown yarn in my stash. Renee sent it to me a while ago and I had every intention of making a pair of socks, but I had to have it for this sweater instead. Had to.
We went to the yarn store and she picked out the pink for the dolls. It was so much fun.
Pattern: Paperdolls, by Katie Davis
Yarn: One ball of socken wolle in green, one ball of cascade heritage in hot pink, one ball of knitpicks gloss in brown.
No mods, this pattern is written beautifully. It was so much fun to see it come together. It is seamless, and comes in adult sizes too!
