Notes

My first attempt at a doll, I’d love to give a little girl doll that looks just like Marissa to her.

Never really worked with acrylics before but this is soft enough.

She turned out quite nicely if I do say so myself. I used the stitch count for the 10” doll and row count for the 12” doll so she’s more tall and thin, but with DK yarn and 3mm needles so it’s sized down 3/4. Did it all in pink and added a doll wig (tricky to make right!). Made the dress pattern up myself, I love how it turned out, very fun (I want one my size, slightly toned down color pooling though!). It can be taken off so maybe more clothes for her to change into will be in the future.
