Easy knitting pattern for the American Girl doll will guide you to make this beautiful and most popular doll cardigan among my designs. Step by step instructions with close up pictures of the work in progress.

The pattern will fit 18 inch dolls like American Girl doll, Gotz dolls, and other 18 inch dolls with same body measurements.

This knitting pattern was inspired by a photo in an Italian fashion magazine. I named it 'Mi Carina' which translates as 'My Darling'. This is a unique cardigan bolero pattern that does not copy or play on any other doll patterns that you see around.

The bolero jacket has a curved hemline which is really pretty and not difficult to achieve. The summer bolero is knitted in garter stitch and can have long or short sleeves. There are measurements for both versions.

Intermediate but also Advanced Beginner
Knowledge is needed on how to knit short rows, increases, decreases, bind offs and cast ons is necessary.

- yarn with bounce, ideally acrylic with wool content
Acrylic will make it coarse, cotton & bamboo will make it too big.

Knitted in 75% silk/25% cashmere yarn

7st x 13 rs (6.5 garter stitch ridges) = 1" (2.5cm) over garter stitch

As always, use any yarn and any size needles that will give you the required gauge, the gauge is very important, or the finished outfit will not fit your doll.
