FO: Doll sweater
I made this little doll sweater and learned how to do steeks. Cutting the steeks wasn't really scary, but this was a very small project and not much time would have been lost if I messed it up.

Now the challenge is to try to make a fair isle sweater for myself, steeks and all.

I used size 9 needles (size 7 for the ribbing), and the yarn is Brown Sheep lamb's pride worsted. It was a fun little project. I took an online class called steeking without fear at needlecraftuniversity.com.

How adorable!! And that is a really great idea...practicing on little doll items instead of the big stuff! Great job!

Looks really good! I'm surprised that an item knitted on such large needles would fit a doll that size. Great idea to practice steeks on doll clothes.
