The American Girl Doll Sweater: Photo Time!

I am putting the final touches on the pattern making sure that it is as clear as possible and typo free. Mr. SockPixie is doing the editing for me and Miss SockPixie is re-reading it. Three pairs of eyes are always better than one!

For the time being, I want to share the pictures with you.

To model the sweaters, I chose Kit and Emily. Kit is wearing the coral red sweater knit with the KnitPicks Palette, and Emily is wearing the green sweater knit in the Jamieson's Spindrift.

I am, as you know, fond of buttons, and here they are glowing like little jewels on the clean folded buttonband.

The bottom edges are a simple rib.

The shoulders are attached with a 3 needle bind off, and the sleeves set in.

I am not promising the pattern will be ready tomorrow, but I am hoping... I can't wait to share this pattern with you!
