Knitted dolls

Thanks to the great folks at Wee Folk Art I was able to fulfill a deep desire to knit a toy for my kids. I used their instructions to make a five inch doll.

I probably should have stuffed it more. And I've learned some things about sewing knitted pieces and following patterns. I've also learned that I shouldn't knit in the car while talking to my husband - I sometimes forget to pay attention to whether I should be knitting or purling.

Of course, that hasn't stopped me from starting a twelve inch doll for the Imp's second birthday (in just one week!). The above photo is just one leg of the doll. It's going to be a tight fit on these needles.


  1. ok...add this to the every growing list! love it!

  2. Such a lovely knitted doll, stuffed full of love :-) I love knitted dolls, but my first attempt at one was a disaster. But I was making it up as I went along, and as a beginner knitter, I had no idea what I was doing. A pattern and directions, now that could be helpful -- I must check out the link.


  3. Thanks everyone! If it hadn't been for the great (and so easy!) pattern, I never could have managed.

  4. Oh it came out terrific!
    There is so much you can do with this basic shape.
    Warm wishes, Tonya
