New pattern posted ...

I just wanted to let you know that I have put the last American Girl pattern on sale in my store. If you want to download it immediately, you can buy it below in this post.

Cotton Candy


This top fits to an American Girl doll size and any comparable 18” doll.

The top has TOP-DOWN seamless construction - no sewing required except for weaving loose ends. The hat is also knitted in a round, no seams and sewing required. This is a quick 3 - 4 hour project; great for last minute gifts.

(worsted) yarn. (Note: when choosing the yarn, choose rather
some stretchier yarn for this project since it needs to be put
on overhead and needs to stretch a bit to fit.)
