This is another entry into the ongoing "Someday I Will Master Colorwork" project. You only have to carry both colors on every third row, which is a plus in my book.
I named it Bernadine because all the other old-timey, feminine but spunky names for cardigans were already taken. ;)

Bernadine is a simple two-color cardigan for 18” dolls. The back and fronts are worked flat separately and seamed together, and the sleeves are worked in the round and then set in.
Yarn: You will need approximately 75 yards each of two contrasting worsted-weight wools for best results. (Pictured: Patons Classic Wool Merino in Chocolate – worsted, 1 skein / 100g / 223 yards, 100% wool; and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Fern – worsted, 1 skein / 50g / 110 yards, 100% wool)
