Doll cardigan pattern

We all know of my deep affection for the Luna Lapin patterns by Sarah Peel. On her website she sells gorgeous patterns for knitted shawls and accessories but unfortunately I can’t knit! So, I’ve had a play with crochet and come up with the below pattern that would work for any doll, in my case I’ll use it for a Luna. This is my first crochet pattern I’ve ever shared with anyone, so please be kind if it doesn’t read well!

ch = chain

Notes: The 2ch at the end of each row count as 1 HDC
