Three new girls

In between wrapping Christmas gifts I've been working on three new knit girls :-)   My knitting gauge is still not quite as it should be; the first two girls turned out a bit smaller than I intended.  Violet and Jennifer ended up  eight and a half inches tall.  But I love small dolls, so they will fit right in.  Their big sister Virginia is a few rows larger, which made her nine and a half inches tall. 

They all have lots of lovely mohair hair, and they were so fun to make. 

Now to get them dressed!

  16. I'm new to knitting, so I've struggled with gauge/neat even stitches for a while now, but your dolls are absolutely beautiful! Loving the hairstyles!

  17. Thank you for the good words, DeLancy :-) Yep, I'm still trying to get consistent gauge, but it does seem that knitting is a bit forgiving...thank goodness!

    1. Hi Leonora,

      Yes, the pattern for these dolls is on the left sidebar. Look for 'Knit Waldorf Style Doll Patterns' and you will find the pattern for the doll and some clothing.

      Warmly,

      Beth
