Ta-dah! Raglan Doll/Teddy Waistcoat Pattern

Materials used
- scrap yarn ( I used Lang Yarns Mille Colori scraps - gauge 4 sts per inch)
- 4mm circular needles or appropriate needles for yarn
- 4 stitch markers

I made this to fit our MamAmor pregnant, birthing & breastfeeding doll but the pattern can be adjusted to fit other sizes of doll or teddy bear. 

Cast on 26 stitches
Rows 1 & 2: knit
Row 3: K4, PM, K5, PM, K8, PM, K5, PM, K4
Row 4: K2, purl to last 2 stitches, K2
Row 5: *knit to 1 stitch before marker, M1, K1, SM, K1, M1, repeat from *
Repeat rows 4 & 5 until there are 22 stitches on the back section
Next row (WS): K2, P to 1st marker, remove marker, bind off sleeve sts, purl to next marker, remove marker, bind off sleeve sts, purl to last 2 sts, K2
Even rows: knit all stitches
Odd rows: K2, purl to last 2 sts, K2

Knit until desired length and knit the last 3 rows before binding off. Sew in ends.

A long sleeved cardigan version with additional shaping can be found here.
