Pattern Description:

Although a native Scandinavian girl is more likely to be herding reindeer, Scandi Sandi quite prefers the polar bear she has raised from a cub. Sandi is very outdoorsy and hearty. Sandi's clothing is warm and traditional, but of course, any good northern girl is wearing a layer of long underwear underneath all the layers.

Scandi Sandi was inspired by the northern indigenous Sami people who predate the Vikings and occupy a large portion of Norway, Finland, Sweden, and eastern Russia.

She's a true daughter of the Arctic Circle, brave and hearty, but like any little girl, she just loves to have fun wherever she may be!

The downloadable PDF includes illustrated step-by-step instructions & templates for Scandi Sandi, her clothes, hair and face.

Kids-at-Heart dolls are 16" (42cm). The doll shown in the photo was made from wool knit, cotton velour, wool suiting, fleece, fake fur, and stuffed with wool fleece.

Skill level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate
