I recently visited the British Museum in London and was fascinated by the ancient Egyptian artefacts. This visit inspired me to knit a Cleopatra doll.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making Cleopatra and her snake, 13 photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 6 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: Cleopatra is knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, except for the belt, jewellery and shoe straps which are single crochet chains. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. This pattern incorporates a three needle join, and step by step instructions with photos are included. The snake is i-cord worked on two DPNs.


  • Three straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
  • A 3.5mm crochet hook (US E/4)
  • Two 3.5mm DPNs to knit the snake (US 4)
  • DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); less than 50g in each colour
  • Toy filling
