I like to think of this as a good back-to-school cardi for Barbie. The yarn is a verigated-primary color blend that tends to lean toward fall in its all-over appearance.
Though my 3 "product-testers," Margo, Donna, and Janet, all thought it seemed incomplete without front closures, I opted to go for the open-front look, as this little cardigan just wants to be paired with jeans and a t-shirt or turtleneck...
Designed and knit by me out of the yummiest merino, fingering-weight yarn.

I really enjoy knitting small things, and my dolls (hand-me-downs from older sisters) have been growing weary of the clothes Gramma knit for them to wear in the 1970s (quite frankly, I think those clothes are amazingly wonderful, and aside from the pair of bell-bottoms, surprisingly up to date and classic, but what do I know?). All three of them urged me, ever so gently, to reestablish a bond with my size 1 knitting needles...and I discovered that knitting clothes for them is just about my favorite thing! Please don't tell them, though, they already feel a tad superior to me. Thank you.
