Rosebud Cardigan Pattern

Hi Knitters,
It's finally ready, the Rosebud Cardigan pattern! I am so glad to be able to offer this sweet cardigan to you. I have received more requests for this pattern than anything else I have ever designed. The bear on page 81 in Itty-Bitty Hats was sent to the photographer as kind of an afterthought to be used as background material. The response to the bear in the rosebud cardigan has been a huge surprise to me. I have been promising this pattern for months and it is finally here. I love it that knitters quickly express what they are interested in knitting, it helps to know. Here are the details:

To fit a medium-sized teddy bear or an 18-inch doll or an American Girl doll

2 skeins Rowan Handknit Cotton in Black
Small amounts of Tahki Cotton Classic for the rosebuds and leaves (the exact colors are listed in the pattern in detail)

US size 7 needles
US size 7 double-pointed needles
US size 4 double-pointed needles
The cardigan fits perfectly on my daughter's American Girl doll, too.
This teddy bear I purchased from a Michael's Craft store years ago. He still looks good as new. Well, knitters, have fun with this and I hope to see some pictures of your Rosebud Cardigans. The pattern is available for purchase, just click on the buy now button below.
best, susie
