Best Friend Doll
Yardage and colors needed may vary depending on knitter’s color preferences for dolls’ bodies, clothing, and hair.
Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “With their mismatched clothing and funny hair, these knitted gals look bonded to one another in what could be the ideal circle of friends - loving, unique, and prone to laughter. Perhaps they remind us of those freedom-filled days of childhood - before peer pressure, boys, and responsibility tamed us.”
