When the leaves start to fall and the temperatures drop, your doll will be very happy to have a cozy pullover to ward off the cold! This downloadable PDF pattern is a resize of our original Half-Zip Pullover pattern for 18-inch dolls... this time designed to fit 14.5-inch dolls such as WellieWishers™!
Featuring a zip-up front as the only closure, this project requires a fairly stretchy fabric to ensure you are able to get the top over your doll's head and arms. Well-suited to micro fleece or polar fleece, other stretchy knits with a bit of structure are also an option. The stand-up collar is lined with a facing of lighter weight knit. Topstitching adds additional detail. Lots of step-by-step full-color photos guide you through the process for this intermediate level project.
Get inspired by these samples made by our Team Tillie Testers!
