One cute little handmade dolly has one cute little handmade scalloped edge cardigan!
( with help from mama)
Satisfaction for all involved!
I liked such a small knitting project, easy to accomplish in one day

Pattern
4.5 mm knittin sticks
Yummy soft yarn about 10 ply

Work two front panels the same
Cast on 15 st
Knit garter st for 15 rows
Cast off
Repeat for other front panel

Back panel
Cast on 30 st
Garter st 15 rose
Cast off

Sew in ends of your three rectangles.
Then with a wool needle and wool sew top shoulder seams together of one front panel to the back, leaving space for a neck hole ( about 12 mm ea side)
Repeat other side

Sew under arm seams almost all the way to the centre. Leave a bit to be the front panel bottom edge of cardigan.

I decorated the bottom edge with some crotchet scalloping and Lily sewed a thread to tie it shut.
Done
Easy peasy
