Last year I decided to make a holiday gift for all by writing up a pattern for the American Girl Doll (or any 18" doll). I thought a quick and easy project would be a blanket that was a little interesting to knit. I wrote up the instructions for a Checker Block Blanket as my holiday gift to you.
Here she stands in front of three blankets - red, white and pink striped.
If you'd like to make a blanket for your favorite little girl and her American Girl Doll, you can download the pattern for personal use here. Enjoy and happy holidays!
