Here are some pictures of the American Girl sweater that I’ve been working on. This Knit Picks Blossom Heather color of wool reminds me of strawberry ice cream. I used pale pink freshwater pearls for the buttons. I always sew the beads onto the sweater with thread shanks so the placket lays smooth underneath the beads.
This first draft turned out ok, but I don’t think I like the neckline and it is a bit snug at the bottom. I am tweaking the pattern and knitting another sweater in the same wool, but in an oyster color. The new one will have a ribbed neckline, long sleeves, and be a bit looser.
