Today my 18" doll, Ginger, is modeling a very, very easy knit shrug. She's wearing the shrug over a sleeveless jumper.
Although this could be knit flat and seams sewn for the sleeves, it's important to knit in the round. If made flat, seams will be to the front of Ginger's arms.
Comments? I'd love to hear from you.
