Bitsy has been out in the garden, busily picking flowers. She’s found a little basket to fill with blooms too.
Bitsy doll would be a lovely gift for Mother’s Day, Birthdays or as a Get Well Soon gift.

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.

Needle size 3.5mm (UK 10 /US 4) and 3mm (UK11/ US 2)
Tension - 20sts x 26 rows = 10cm (4”) st.st. Square

Recommended yarn: - Paint Box Yarns Simply DK Or similar DK yarn
