"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.
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).
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
