BY GAIL BAUM
About a year ago, I stopped by the Studio and had a discussion about how to make a particular sweater for my granddaughter in a worsted weight #4 yarn and a matching sweater for her 18" doll in #2 weight yarn. The pattern came from Creative Knitting Magazine , Sept. 2009.
The hardest part was finding the same color yarn in both weights. The young man (note from Patty: that was our Studio manager, Will) I was working with suggested that I use only #2 weight yarn, but double it to make a #4 weight. And this is what I did. From a different pattern, I also made shoulder bags for each. I loved making these sweaters and I even took the project on the road with me–or rather on-board a ship that cruised the Black Sea from Kiev to Odessa in the Ukraine. I was so pleased with the finished results I wanted to share it with you.
Enclosed is a picture of the finished objects & a picture of my granddaughter and her doll wearing their sweaters.
