Notes

Hands/Arms;
Strawberry red colour.

Legs/body/head colours;
I made the standard doll pattern - brown (soil colour) yarn to the end of Rnd 12 for the boots, start Rnd 13 with the strawberry red for the body and the head in your chosen skin colour.

To avoid increase lines on the bottom of the head, I ‘split’ or stagger the increases like this;
Up to Rnd 34: As per pattern.
Rnd 35: 2sc, inc, * (4sc, inc) * repeat from * to * to last 2sts - finish the round with 2sc.
Rnd 36: As per pattern.
Rnd 37: 3sc, inc, * (6sc, inc) * repeat from * to * to last 3sts - finish the round with 3sc.
Rnd 38: As per pattern.
Rnd 39: 4sc, inc, * (8sc, inc) * repeat from * to * to last 4sts - finish the round with 4sc.
Rnd 40 and beyond: As per pattern.
So - the pattern hasn’t been altered at all!
You’ve simply moved the increases on all of the ‘even’ rounds and all ‘odd’ rounds remain the same.

I made crochet cord with brown yarn to stitch around the top of each boot and strawberry red for around the neck using this Planet June tutorial;

Hat;
Start with 6sc and increase each round until you reach 9(sc, inc) round, then work a few rounds of sc until the hat is as long as you’d like, then work a round of (1sc, inc) to create the turned-out hat look. I finished with a round of reverse sc.

Leaves;
I used three leaves from this pattern to add to the hat;

Flower;
With yellow, 5sc in a magic ring (or 2ch, 5sc in second ch from hook), finish off leaving 10cm tails of yarn for later finishing.
With white, join yarn in any sc.
Work (3ch, 2dc, 3ch,sl st into the same sc) - that make a petal.
Sl st into the next st and work another petal…you should have 5 petals in total….finish off.
Tie the yellow yarn ends into a firm not (add a spot of glue if you don’t trust knots to stay!), then thread both of the yellow ends through to the right side of your flower. Cut to about .5-1cm in length, then use a needle to separate the fibres of yarn to give the look of fuzzy stamens.

Strawberry

I used a gold metallic thread to add ‘seeds’ to the doll’s body, hat and the strawberry.

Hair
Using this tutorial as a guide;
