Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 285 – Fiona Doll Hoodie

I was recently in New York City and one of our stops was The American Girl ® store. It was lots of fun to watch all the girls running around picking out outfits for their girls. My little niece Mallory, like many other girls her age, is very much into dressing her doll to match her own outfit. This week Susan Mills brings you the handknit version of this concept.

Our Liberty Wool Kids booklet features the pattern for this darling hooded cardigan for the girl and in the Web-Letter we give you the pattern for the doll. This cardigan is designed to fit any 18" doll. Liberty Wool is a colorful and machine washable, perfect for this adorable knit.

The Yarn

Liberty Wool
100% Washable Wool

Liberty Wool is a super-soft, washable wool available in solid and printed colors. This yarn's balanced twist will make all stitch combinations pop! With all the great qualities of wool and the ease of machine washability, Liberty Wool knits at a gauge that suits many designs and is ideal for children's pieces as well as those for adults.

Liberty Wool Kids

The Liberty Wool Kids pattern booklet features kid-friendly, machine washable Liberty Wool with seven designs for ages 2-10. From a classic Aran sweater for girls and boys to pullovers, dresses and cardigans – this book will keep your needles busy and your little one wrapped in handknits. Click over to the Liberty Wool Kids booklet page to learn more about these designs.

For the younger tots, we have Liberty Wool Baby. The booklet includes two blanket patterns (one knit and the other crocheted) and three sweaters for babies sized 6–24 months.

Look for both pattern booklets at your LYS or purchase the Kids and Baby patterns online.
