The first of the Pin up girls series. “She’s not bad, she’s just knitted that way.” Although she seems to be cool and distant on the surface, she’s really a softie on the inside. Her curvy and wineglass figure attracts many admirers but she makes it clear that she only has an eye for Roger.

This pattern has 5 pages of photos, and written instructions so you can do it quickly.
Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Skills used: Basic knit stitch, increases, decreases, knitting in the round, basic embroidery skills.

Note: Since it is knitted in the round, there’s no messy seaming, special for somebody who don’t love to sew.
Materials:

  1. 8 ply weight wool or acrylic. (I have used Moda Vera Marvel 8ply 100% acrylic for MC and CC1 and used about one third of a ball.) Yarn in ruby red for MC, beige for CC1, purple for CC2, red CC3 and scrap yarn black.
  2. 3.25mm /US-3, 100cm/40” circular needles for magic loop and DPNs or size needed to obtain gauge.
  3. Pearl head needle
  4. Stitch marker
  5. Polyester stuffing
  6. Yarn needle
  7. Embroidery needles
  8. red thread
  9. Stitch holders

If you use thicker yarn and bigger size of needles you get a bigger toy.
