I decided my Sven & Solveig dolls could use a new cardigan, a removable garment, to go over the cleverly knit-in clothing on the dolls. If you have a Barrett Wool Co. Sven & Solveig Kit you’ll have plenty of gorgeous Wisconsin Woolen Spun yarn leftover. So why not use it to make a cardigan or two for the dolls. I made the sample in one color, Hawthorn, but you could do stripes, add a little colorwork to the yoke, add accent cuffs and trim, etc. Have fun and I hope you enjoy this extra piece to go along with Carol’s amazing pattern.
Measurement: 4 1/2-inches in length from the collar to bottom edge of the body.

The modifications are found on the Barrett Wool Co. Journal and are to be used along with the original Sven & Solveig pattern by Carol Anderson.
