I created these cute dress-up dolls for children to love and to enjoy lots of cuddles and play. They have knitted hair which will always look neat and tidy!

Billy doll wears pair of dungarees and a cap whilst Joe doll has a pair of trousers and a jacket.

Both dolls have knitted in T-shirts, underwear, and optional knitted in boots or bare feet. The dolls and their clothes are knitted flat and seamed.

Billy and Joe pattern includes the option to knit the dolls
either with knitted in socks and boots(no lost boots this way!) or knit them with bare feet so you can change the boots to match their outfits, the choice is yours.

This pattern has row by row instructions and a clear making up guide.

There cap has a peak worked with picked up stitches, I also give an alternative version with a sewn-on peak.

This 12-page pattern has printer friendly pattern instruction pages (These contain no illustrations or colour printing.) The making up instructions have full colour illustrations to help guide you through finishing your knitting project.
