Like the pretty Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street this rattle will bring magic into your home :) She is sooo beautiful, filled with pink and purple colors - a girl's favorite colors :) The skill level required for this pattern is Intermediate - Advance Beginner. The pattern comes with detailed written instructions and charts!!!!! (if you prefer to use them). NOTE FOR PARENTS - the rattle sound is VERY VERY gentle, so it won't drive you crazy ;) You are welcome! The pattern is my own inspired by the adorably Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street. Note - I'm not affiliated with Sesame Street. (sigh) You may NOT use this pattern, or the dolls produced following the pattern for commercial/retail purposes. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY increase and decrease Change Colors GAUGE No need for gauge. You can change the size to be bigger or smaller by using threads in different thickness and different hook sizes.
