A few months ago my friend Linden asked me to make a doll for her friend Jane’s 50th birthday. All Linden wanted was for the doll to have blonde hair like Jane and she should also be wearing pastel clothes.
As I’m completely new to knitting dolls I had to try different ideas (and fail a few times too) before I was happy with the look. Thanks to this project I’m finally more comfortable with circular knitting, woohoo (it’s still hard work though)! This is the prototype I first made.
I called this project the Sukoshi Doll’ – ‘sukoshi’ means ‘a little bit’ in Japanese.
And now Jane’s doll complete with her very own ’50’ handbag!
