American Girl Knitted Halter Top and Shrug With Pattern
I did a knitting for sewing trade recently and knitted a halter top for an American Girl doll. I didn't know that AG doll's torsos are cloth and their arms are plastic, so once I got my hands on one and found out, I was a bit bummed. It just didn't look super good to me with the cloth/plastic contrast, so, what to do? Knit a shrug of course!
I sell both.
The halter will fit an AG size doll, and probably more, who knows. And the shrug would look great over any AG shirt or dress.
I used the magic loop method, but DPNs would work
