My American Girl Doll Sweater is Complete

P1100836Here 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.P1100832

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.
