Silk Mohair Sweater
Created By: Sharron Fina
Craft: knit
Materials: I used your pattern, Adult Raglan Sleeve Pullover, for this. Since the pattern was designed for bulky yarn, switching to the Silk Mohair with much smaller needles made it perfect for the doll. I converted the bulky yarn to 2 skeins of the Lion Silk Mohair in Wisp, and changed the needles from 10 & 11 to 1 & 2. The yarn caused no problems using such small needles (recommended size is 8). I used the largest pattern size for the sweater, since the scaling seemed good from a test swatch. The finished item weighs 35 grams (1.24 ounces). I think the results are perfect! I have a comfy sweater for Nicholas to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sunset.
Pattern Source: lionbrand: Adult Raglan Sleeve Pullover

I dress dolls, from 15cm (6 inches) to 72cm (28 inches). This guy, Nicholas Randolph, is one of the big ones, and I wanted something special for him wear.

I've always been able to convert adult patterns to doll patterns, normally by just changing the yarn weight and the needle size. I find that by changing patterns that call for bulky yarn convert easiest to doll size. That was the case here.

The yarn isn't overtly fuzzy, so stayed in scale with what I was creating. In fact, it reminds me of a beautiful sweater I had as a teenager - so many years ago.

I'll be making a few of these sweaters for smaller dolls. With the size range on the pattern, I should have no problem fitting most of my dolls.
