Knit a perfect replica of your wife, girlfriend, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter or best friend with this customisable pattern.

Woolly Woman has an hourglass but realistic figure, just like the women you know. She also wears trousers. Her hair can be knitted, sewn or attached with a crochet hook to suit your woman’s hairstyle.

In addition to the written instructions on how to make the body, basic head, hair bun, curly hair, how to sew the knitted pieces together and how to stuff Woolly Woman, there are coloured charts for the intarsia heads and close-up photos illustrating how to make her features.

Woolly Woman is knit flat and if using Cascade 220 yarn and 3.5mm needles she is approximately 32cm (12.5 inches) tall.

Woolly Man is available as a separate pattern.

You will need:

  • Cascade 220 yarn: approximately 5g each for the skin, shoes and (short) hair, 20g for the top, 23g for the trousers and a small amount for the eyes. Beige, Sand, Tan and Brown are good shades for the skin.
  • 3.5mm (US 4) knitting needles.
  • A stitch holder.
  • Toy stuffing.
  • A small amount of black, white and lip-coloured embroidery thread.
  • A tapestry needle.
  • A sharp sewing needle.
  • Optional: 3.5mm crochet hook (if you want to attach hair with cow hitch).
  • Optional: felting needle (for the features).

Techniques you should be familiar with before using this pattern:

  • Increases and decreases.
  • Intarsia is not essential, however it is useful if you want to make very short hair, hair tied into a bun or to prevent the colour of the scalp being visible through long hair.

When you buy this pattern you will also receive a free 15-page tutorial on how to use mattress stitch to sew toys together.
