Little Sweethearts - knitted doll
These soft, huggable LITTLE SWEETHEARTS make ideal ‘first dolls’ for tiny tots. When snuggled in a snowy white towel dolly will be extra cuddly.
The knitting pattern for these cute little bunting babies is based on Waldorf dolls of a similar type. Great care has been taken to ensure that all parts will be firmly secured so that no part of the doll will be unsafe for babies and young children to handle.
SIZE - Small doll - 15cm (6in), large doll is 20cm (8in)
PATTERN - The pattern is easy to follow with lots of coloured pictures to assist with every stage of your kitten making. All pattern rows are numbered. Pattern contains 2 styles (straight or round edge gown) and 2 designs (striped or heart). If you prefer to knit a dolly in just one colour without stripes or hearts then simply ignore the changes of colour given in the pattern.
SKILLS REQUIRED - Cast on, cast off (bind off), knit, purl, increase and decrease
NEEDLES - knitted on a pair of 3.25mm needles (US 3)
YARN - Small amounts of DK (double knitting) yarn (USA - light-worsted/Australia - 8 ply) which is baby-safe and washable
