KP_004: Raglan sweater pattern for Kaye Wiggs dolls.


It took a lot of knitting, unpicking and more knitting to get this pattern right, but I've done it. So here it is.


*Available in my Etsy shop:

And right here on the blog: (PayPal shopping basket)

My Craftsy store: 

New - On CD disc from Ebay: (No VAT payable, and no charge for the CD itself, just postage.)

If you wish to buy directly from me,  I can supply a PayPal invoice and email the pattern to you within 24 hours of payment.  Usually it will be faster than that, I'm just allowing for the potential differences in time zones.  

Email for a PayPal invoice:

If you do buy from me by email, and you live in the EU, the rules state that I don't have to charge you VAT as it's a direct sale.  So I won't.

Price without VAT is £5.99.

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries).  I always recommend people to look in my Craftsy store anyway, or buy from the blog, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates.  I always recommend comparing prices.



£5.99




The Sweater can simply be turned back to front to be worn as a cardigan. It is designed this way.  



It fits both the MSD and the shorter Mei Mei body, and may fit other MSD sized dolls too. It's a little longer on the Mei Mei, but looks equally adorable.   At the end of the pattern is a small section on styling your garments, with a few ideas on how to shorten or lengthen,  or try variations, once you're familiar with the pattern.
I don't just throw a few written instructions onto a page and hope for the best. I endeavour to add helpful information and guide people through these projects as much as possible.  An expert/intermediate knitter will sail through the project, and hopefully a beginner shouldn't find it too daunting.



The beret has a stretchy welt, that will fit Layla's head, and  will also fit nicely on Gracie's larger head.




This pattern uses-

Yarn:
1 ball of Berocco Comfort Sock 3 ply yarn will make hat and sweater with plenty to spare. This yarn is nice and soft. I've bought a few balls of it, and love using it. 


Needles:
Sweater: 
Pair US size 00. UK size 15 (Metric 1.75mm)
Pair US size 1. UK size 13 (Metric 2.25mm)

Beret: 
Pair US size 00. UK size 15 (Metric 1.75mm)
Pair US size 2. UK size 12 (Metric 2,75mm)

Next, I'm currently finalising a charming new sewing pattern for both these doll sizes.  So watch this blog :)
