Not yet rated | write a review

With these easy-to-follow patterns and instructions, knitters of all skill levels will be able to create nine dolls from three basic designs—at a finished size of 20 or 23 inches tall—each with a distinctive style, personality, and matching wardrobes. In addition to featuring designs for 35 pieces of trendy apparel and accessories, the handbook lays out how to construct bodies, faces, and hair and provides templates for eyebrows, eyes, and mouths. While there are specific instructions for dolls ranging from Samantha, the sports enthusiast, and Willow, the sophisticated Celtic beauty, to Rose, the water lover, and Poppy, the party girl, the patterns can easily be adapted to create any type of doll. The use of different colors of yarn, varying yarn types, and an assortment of trims and adornments also enhances the opportunity for creativity. All of the clothing and accessories—bikinis, coats, dresses, handbags, hats, mini skirts, scarves, sweaters, swimsuits, and tops—are fully interchangeable between dolls to create a myriad of looks.
