Love STINKS yeah! yeah! - or - All we need is LOVE?

Knit this cute lil’voodoo doll for the one you love or the one you love to hate

PATTERN IS NOW AVAILABLE IN FRENCH AND GERMAN! - A huge THANK YOU to MinaInverse and NieBluna for the translations. Thanks so much for doing this Sabrina & Thomas! ~♥~

Note about the pattern:
Worked entirely in the round, you will begin at the bottom/base of the body and then up through the neck & head, stuffing as you go and closing at the top. All four limbs are worked in the round as well… from the hand/foot to the arm/leg and then attached to the body with the tail from the cast off.

Techniques used:

  • cast on
  • knit
  • purl
  • k2tog - knit 2 sts together
  • bind off sts
  • kfb - knit through the front & back of the stitch

Materials & Tools

  • Worsted Weight yarn or yarn of your choice - approx 90 - 100 yards
  • Needle size will vary depending on the yarn you use. On worsted weight yarn I use a US 5 or US 6. I suggest going down 1 - 2 sizes from the smallest needle size for the recommended gauge on the yarn label.
  • this project can be worked on DPN’s, 2 circs or a 40” circular for Magic Loop (my preferred method), just make sure to distribute your stitches evenly for working in the round
  • tapestry needle (for weaving in ends)
  • sewing needle - if adding stitches to the heart
  • wool felt (small piece for heart)
  • fabric glue
  • stitch marker(s) (for marking the beginning of round & front side of knitting)
  • safety eyes OR craft eyes OR buttons
  • embroidery floss or yarn scraps for X eye, mouth and heart stitches
  • polyfil
  • pins for bad juju (optional)

Gauge
You want a tight fabric when knitting toys so the polyfil won’t poke through. I always go down 1 - 2 needle sizes from the smallest size recommended on the yarn label. I typically use a US 5 or 6 for Worsted, US 2 or 3 for DK & US 0 or 1 for Fingering. These are only suggestions and everyone knits differently, so as long as you are getting a dense fabric, you‘re good.

Happy knitting & creating!
