“Claire the Hare” is a vintage-style knitted rabbit doll who fits perfectly in little arms, measuring 16” from head to toe. Her long, lanky body, shapely limbs, and detailed face make for a truly unique design. Her little overall Springtime dress has crisscross straps across the back and a tiny pocket at her hip. Once knitted, this doll makes a perfect softie for most kids and doubles as an adorable bedroom décor accessory when not in use.

Pattern includes detailed instructions, color photos, and suggestions.

This PDF pattern gives instructions for making the complete doll and dress. The pattern is perfect for any knitter who knows how to do techniques such as: k2tog, ssk, kfb, psso. The doll and dress are both knitted in the round and have no seams, which makes it a quick and easy project. You will need a PDF viewer installed on your computer to download the file.
