Cobblestone Sweater for Hearts for Hearts Girls


I was able to crochet a sweater for my Hearts for Hearts dolls!  I used Sweet Pea Fashions’ “Cobblestone Sweater”.

The Cobblestone sweater pattern is rated for advance beginner.  This is probably correct.  When I originally tried this, I did have some troubles with the single crochet ribbing.  I would forget and add a single crochet to the turning chain one.  As long as you feel comfortable making crocheted rows, this pattern wasn’t too bad.  Also, don’t over think the crochet chart.  I was confused when I went to do the shoulders sections if I was on the correct side.  But following the directions, everything came out alright.

I started with the crochet hook (size C) recommend on the 14 inch doll pattern but realized when I was halfway through the ribbing that it would not be long enough.  Since I had the 18 inch doll pattern also, I did compare the two and the 18 inch pattern recommends a size D hook.  I used that and was able to get the recommended size shown in the 14 inch pattern.  So I do believe that is a typo between the two patterns.  They both call for the same weight of yarn and the only difference I could tell was the length of ribbing needed to achieve the dimension required to fit the dolls.

The back closes with three snaps.


I think this would be easy to change-up into a sweater dress.  I think it would require adding about 8 to 10 more rows of the pattern to get the length needed just so you can follow the pattern for the shoulder area.
