This pattern is for my “Diva Ghalia” doll! A few months ago, Darn Good Yarn reached out to me to come up with a pattern using some of their amazing yarn! This yarn is extra special because it also supplies lots of women with jobs to help provide for their families. I chose the name “Diva Ghalia” because it means “Child of God” and “Precious”. Be sure to hop on over to the Darn Good Yarn website to learn more about their amazing story!

This pattern is worked from the feet up with the arms easily sewn on before starting the head. It includes the doll body, skirt, shirt, Sari, hair, and head wrap.

What you’ll need:
Size E (3.5mm) and K (6.5mm) hooks (you’ll only need the K if you’re using Bulky for the Sari)
