These free American Girl Doll patterns and chart are quick little projects even a beginner can make. They are great for selling at shows, bazaars and online.
This is one of those knitted doll patterns that can be made up in one evening. So if you are running late on Christmas gifts here is a perfect one.
There is a wide variety of colors and designs you may want to add. You can adjust to a short sleeve or sleeveless top. Make stripes or two color. Add beads and lace to dress it up.
Another idea is to make a matching sweater for the little girl or doll mommy. They love the mother daughter sets. Of course it won't be such a quick project than.
I like using charts when knitting or crocheting if possible. I am giving you this pattern in both forms, one is written and the other is a chart I made and follow. This is for the pullover.
This knitted pull over is easy and will get you started on a basic pattern. This pattern can be made up in so many colors, designs and variations. Just like people a doll could use a dozen sweaters to go with her many outfits.
