This lovely doll measures 34cm and is knit in the round in one piece with the arms joined along as you knit. Stuffing is added as you go so that once you close off the neck and sew a few stitches to close the underarm seam you are practically done.

The pattern also includes a dress with two different stitch patterns, ballerina shoes and a headscarf/shawl. All accessories are removable. Any sport or light DK leftover yarn will do.

I have included this pattern in an ebook at a very good price to make it interesting for little girls to play with the doll. The ebook also includes two sets of clothes: lacy day and playground day accessories.

Requires a little handstitching to secure the join between legs and body and attach the head to the body. The hair is also sewed on. A bit of embroidery for the eyes, nose and mouth. A photo tutorial is included and precise measurements of stuffed parts and eyes, nose and mouth placement are given.

Skills required are knitting in the round with the magic loop method or 5 DPNs, short-rows (though complete instructions are provided in pattern) and a knowledge of a toe-up sock technique. There are links to video tutorial to assist you.
