A simple knit sweater for Riley

Here is a very simple knit sweater to fit Riley, Tulah or Zsu Zse.  It is just rectangles, with no shaping.  The shoulder seams are sewn, then the sleeve stitches are picked up and knitted into the side of the sweater.  Sew up the sleeve and side seams, and it is done!  All you need to know are the knit and purl stitches.

This is a resizing of the knit sweater I designed for my knit Waldorf doll.

The pattern is here, and on the left sidebar under Krochet for Kish.



  1. merci !! Très beau ce gilet !

  2. I just absolutely LOVE your work. It is some of the best I have seen. Thank you for the generosity of spirit to share your work. I would like to ask a question. I wish to crochet your beautiful Beagle Puppy for my niece but she wants to cuddle a larger size puppy than the pattern allows. Is there a way to increase the pattern but adding extra stitches besides increasing size through using the usual "thicker yarns and a larger crochet hook" method?

  3. Hi Normarella,

    Thank you for the good words :-) You could certainly try making the Beagle puppy by increasing the stitches. What I would suggest is you make the puppy as the pattern calls for, so you can get familiar with how the pup is constructed. You can then more easily see how you might make it larger by more stitches in certain areas.

    And, you would have a big and little Beagle...maybe a Mother and her youngster :-)

    Good luck!


  4. Dear

    Thanks to your tutorials I had the courage to try one of your doll patterns. It worked out quite well (for a first try).
    But when posting the picture on my ravelry account, it registered as "personal pattern" and I do not know how to rectify this. I'm trying to contact someone with Ravelry because I really don't want you to think that I want to take credit for your hard and beautiful work!
    Kind regards

  5. Hello Haakdraakje,

    I'm delighted that you had good luck with one of my patterns, and I appreciate your concern on credit for work. Thank you for telling me, but please do not worry about it. I am happy the patterns and tutorials worked well for you.
