The Bitsy babies looks super cute in their Easter costumes. They have the perfect outfits for going on an Easter egg hunt!

The dolls even have a little basket to collect their mini eggs!

These quick and easy dolls would be super Easter gifts or little surprises to find during an Easer Egg hunt!

Both Bunny and Chick versions are included in this pattern.
Bitsy doll bodies and heads are knitted in one piece and after seaming and stuffing the legs are created by sewing a seam through from front to back to divide the legs. The arms are knitted separately and are sewn on when making up these cute little characters.

This pattern is suitable for confident beginners- All the doll and accessory pieces are knitted flat and use basic shaping.

Check the recommended needle size for your yarn and use a needle 1 size smaller.
This will give a close textured stocking stitch which will hold its shape well when stuffed
