Something to weight down the base of your doll (I used dried split lentils in the toeof some tights)
This pattern is written in British English terms.Do not join each round or turn unless otherwise stated.Seams have been joined using mattress stitch; if you pull your stitches tight while joining theseams, the colour of yarn used will not show through to the right side of your work.Take your time when embroidering the details; placement and scale are important.At the end of each line of instructions I have given the number of stitches.Where a sequence of stitches are to be repeated throughout a round, the sequence is in ()with the total number of repeats afterwards.Mark the beginning of your round with an odd length of yarn in a contrasting colour. Thiswill help you keep track of where you are in the pattern and make it easier to count yourstitches. Move your marker up at the beginning of each round.Where dc2tog is written, I have used the invisible decrease method. I would certainlyrecommend using this yourself.Likewise, I have used the invisible fasten off method, which again I would recommend usingfor neater seamsBe sure to place the plastic milk bottle lid in the base of your doll before the second
decrease or you won’t have enough space to do so. If you are using the same method of
weighting as I am, then I would recommend placing that in the body at the same time.
