Hi! My name is Tatyana.
Toys, decor and crafts - it's just part of my life. The whole world. My world. My country. Oriental country of Deniza's toys joys. You are welcome.
Eugene. The Doll in striped stockings with big umbrella.
The toy is knitted round and that is why the pattern is recommended for Advanced Beginner Knitters.
4 double-pointed needles in a size suitable for the yarn weight you are using. I recommend using needles a size or two smaller than the yarn calls for, to produce a firm fabric. used Needles size 21/2 (3mm)
Vanilla colored yarn for head. I used Nako baby Hogeldin / 60% bambu, 40% polyamid ; 100gr " 230m /
White yarn for dress and umbrella. I used Nako Bonbon Amigurumi / 100% acrylic ; 100gr " 170m /
Black yarn for dress, hair and umbrella. I used Nako Bonbon Amigurumi / 100% acrylic ; 100gr " 170m /
Red yarn for dress . I used Nako Bonbon Amigurumi / 100% acrylic ; 100gr " 170m /
