I started making the American girl doll sized sweaters that fit most all of the similar goals that are 18 inches so far I have sold several in my neighborhood ..... looks like American girl dolls are still very popular

Not only cute but expertly knitted. Seeing your post reminded me of my mother. She was not only an expert knitter but a sewer as well. I wish I could remember the matching dresses she made for me and her. I would probably like them today as a vintage reminder of the 50's. To get back on topic, I imagine knitting one of these sweaters for a doll and a matching one for the doll's "mother" or even as a sweater for a premie as I believe might have been suggested in another post.

Does anyone else have a mother or grandmother that just can do anything better than we can? Not to leave out the men, of course. There seems to be such a standard of excellence with all trades, crafts, etc. in our past. I'm happy to see the beautiful work on this forum and in other places on the net.

I used own a yarn shop in northern Vermont many years ago..I started When I as about 12..I am the only one in my family that really did much crafting but now I have a 19-year-old college granddaughter who knits and crochets better than most of my adult friends. For the last few years now I have really been addicted to making greeting cards so I hadn't knit much for a while but now that I picked up the doll sweaters again I am really enjoying it

I bought this pattern a few years ago when Sue first posted it. It is my go to for my 18 inch dolls that I donate with a wardrobe to a charity that raffles the doll and wardrobe. Everyone is always surprised by the little beautiful doll sweater. I highly recommended it and it is so worth the small fee.

Thanks so much for the compliment and although I have sold many many of my sweaters I also donate a bunch and people seem to be very happy with them
