Type:

Toy

Item:

Doll/Doll Clothing

Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round (magic loop method is helpful), double-pointed needles (for small stuff) and transferring stitches from one set of needles to another
  • latch hooking (for hair), simple sewing & construction, embroidery, blanket stitching

Pattern Description:

Sally is the main character from my childrens book titled “Frizzy Hair on a Sunny Day".
She has a spunky personality, her laughter is infectious and she is almost certain to help you turn a frown upside down. She loves her knitting and typically totes it with her everywhere.
(Daisy and knitting bucket pattern to be available soon.)

This 7 page pattern is very clearly written and includes bundles of pictures and unlimited email help from me in case you need a bit of help. Basic knitting stitches (knit stitches, a few purls, a bobble or two and binding off) and basic sewing knowledge (for her clothes!) is needed to complete this pattern. I always knit the magic loop method (a way of knitting in the round) but it can also be knitted on double-points as well. Three (3) of the seven (7) pages are the pattern to cut out her felt clothing.

Gauge:

Gauge: The pattern is written to be knit with worsted weight yarn on smaller needles but you can adjust it by simply knitting your yarn on needles 2-3 sizes smaller than those recommended to create a tight knit fabric the stuffing does not show through. Keep in mind if you change the size of the doll the sewing pattern for her clothes and shoes will not fit unless you know how to upsize or down size them accordingly.

  • Doll measures 15" tall when finished.

Materials:

  • Circular needle size 3.5 mm (US 4) at least 32" long (for magic loop method), set of dpns the same size, 1 - 100gr/3.5 oz. skein of beige worsted weight yarn, 1-50 gr. ball of Ice Spiry Wool (or rust colored), 2-3 yds. dark brown, sock yarn in Magenta and Gold (BOTH COLORS), Polyester filling, Felt squares (lime green-2, light blue-1, black-1, orange-scrap, white-scrap, pink-scrap & yellow-scrap)

I started crocheting when I was three. A neighbor lady showed me a few stitches and I was hooked! :O) I learned to knit from the mother of a high school boyfriend. I've always sewn and my high school Home Ec teacher never had to worry about my projects getting finished. My mom has always sewed and been crafty and I guess I just followed suit. I am totally unable to sit and do nothing so I'm ...
