Billy and Bobbie-Jo are dressed ready for Winter fun.
Billy wears a warm bobble hat with a matching scarf and Bobbie-Jo is wrapped up in a snuggly snowsuit.

Both dolls are knitted flat in one piece with arms sewn on. This pattern is suitable for beginner knitters as there is no complicated shaping. I fully explain the ssk decrease used and how to change colour.

Their hats, scarves and hoods are knitted separately and can be sewn into place or taken off for added play value. I have included instructions for adding a sweet tuft of hair in case you do not want to sew the hat or hood into place.

I’ve also included a useful tutorial sheet to show you how to make quick and easy tiny pom-poms!

To make each doll follow the instructions for knitting the head then continue following the separate patterns for either Billy or Bobbie-Jo
