I have been asked many times how to make my dolls and is there a pattern. Each doll is unique and special but over the course of finding the right look for my dolls, I have compiled
notes to the basic body of a Lottie Doll,
These notes are for the body only, and top hat. With this body you can make any doll your imagination can come up with. BE CREATIVE! Make your Lottie SHINE!
gage depends on needle size and yarn
Sizing / Finished Measurements:
- -Any yarn of your choice, one colour for skin, and as many colours as you chose for legs, arms and torso (I like chunky yarn and mill end yarn has many interesting textures perfect for dolls) yes.... I said Mill end yarn. Awesome for dolls. 2 - Bernat Soft Boucl- colour of your choice for hair (you can use any yarn for hair but is recommended it be a textured yarn)- 4 double pointed needles (size US 7 -4.5mm to obtain 21-28inch doll) - tapestry needle to sew parts together - stuffing of your choice (I use polyester Stuffing) -1 stitch markers for beginning of round - stitch holder or waste yarn -crochet hook similar in size to your needles
