All three patterns are included in this set-
Witch with her broom.
Skeleton doll and pumpkin.
Pumpkin doll.

All the dolls 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. All the doll and accessory pieces are knitted flat and use basic shaping.

Witch Doll
Bitsy Witch is dressed up and ready to go trick or treating!
She loves her big witches hat and her stripy red and white tights.
She’s holding on tightly to her toy broomstick, and the orange pumpkin by her feet finishes off this sweet little Halloween scene.
This pattern is suitable for confident beginners- yarn overs are used in the skirt section, and yarn is carried up the side of the work for the leg stripes.
A cotton bud (Q tip) is used to make the broom handle, if you are giving this doll to a child you should omit the cotton bud from the broom handle.

Skeleton Doll
The Skeleton doll is too cute to be scary! He (or she) would make a great Halloween decoration or gift.
The “Bones” are simple crochet chains- although a similar effect can be obtained with wool embroidery.
Safety eyes are used – I also give full instructions for making embroidered eyes.
The pumpkin is sewn to the dolls leg to enable him to stand un-aided.

Pumpkin doll
Pumpkin doll is a sweet little cutie wearing a pumpkin costume- maybe ready to go trick or treating for the first time?

These little characters are great last minute gifts and stash busters.
Quick and easy to knit, using left over yarn.
They are welcome gifts for all ages!

These dolls are easy to knit and suitable for confident beginners.
