Created by Diceberry Designs for the 2015 Circus Theme contest in Amigurumipatterns.net

The finished doll works up to be about thirteen inches tall with the recommended materials, but gauge is not important in this project and you can adapt any yarn weight you’d prefer! This pattern is written in US terminology, and is recommended for intermediate skill level and above.

Shy little miss sheep isn’t used to the limelight. But when Miss Leah hits the stage… She brims with stardom as she twirl her parasol up high during her signature highwalk! Nervous and meek as she may seem, her confidence in her stunts makes her all the more appealing to circus goers!
