PATTERN DETAILS

From 'Simple English Wikipedia' - "The Venus is not a realistic portrait but rather an idealization of the female figure. Her vulva, breasts, and swollen belly are very pronounced. This suggests a strong connection to fertility. Her tiny arms are folded over her breasts, and she has no visible face. Her head is covered with what might be coils of braids, eyes, or a kind of headdress. The lack of a face has prompted some archaeologists and philosophers to view the Venus as a 'universal mother.'" BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY slip stitch, single crochet, half-double crochet, decrease, working in the rounds and working in rows. GAUGE Size of finished doll depends on crocheting tension, size of crochet hook used and type/thickness of yarn used. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The crocheted doll measures about 7.5 inches (19.1cm) in height and 4 inches (10.2cm) at its widest part.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 2.2mm crochet hook, 18 wpi fine/laceweight acrylic yarn
