This Waldorf-inspired toy works up quickly -- you can create a whole dance troupe in a few hours. It will provide hours of imaginative play for your little one. I call her a dancer because her skirt flares out like a girl twirling around, but she can just as easily be a fairy, a princess, or a milk maid -- it's up to the person playing with her. I recommend using 100% cotton yarn because it lends a stiffness that helps the doll stand up as shown. This pattern is written in US crochet terms. IMPORTANT!

I can't remember a time when I wasn't creating things. My mom taught me to crochet and sew, I took art lessons, and I'm now slowly learning to knit. I love the whole crafting process, from coming up with an idea or design to seeing it take shape to enjoying the finished product.
