"Dashing Diamonds II"
Zip-Front Aran Cardigan
A Pattern for Kish's 14" Chrysalis Dolls
This pattern includes a visual chart and written instructions for "Dashing Diamonds II," a Zip-Front Aran Cardigan for Kish's 14" Chrysalis dolls like Lark, Wren, Piper, Grace, Raven, and Shea.
This pattern is my own original design.  I previously published a version of this pattern for Tyler & Ellowyne, but these are completely new instructions for knitting the sweater from the top down.  You can make the cardigan hooded as shown or with a simple shawl collar. 
I also include instructions for "Cable-Needle-Less Cable Knitting."  This is the perfect project for learning to knit cables without using a cable needle.


Suggested Supplies
Wren's cardigan was knit using needles in US sizes 0 & 000 (2mm & 1.5mm).  I used KnitPicks Palette, an inexpensive fingering weight wool yarn available from
www.knitpicks.com (231 yards in a 50 gram ball). The hooded cardigan used approximately 35-40 ounces. 

Finishing is done using needle & thread and a small zipper (available from www.tinyzippers.com).

Item Basics
This purchase includes the printed version of my knitting pattern for an Aran cardigan with optional hood.  I also include a bonus "teaching" section which explains how to knit Aran sweaters without using a cable needle.


This purchase is a PDF copy of the pattern, sent by email to you on receipt of payment.  If you would prefer a hard copy version of the pattern, go to my main knitting patterns page to add it to your cart as a HARD COPY version.
