Are you Sher-Locked?
But this isn't an advert for the show (even though it sounds like one), but a sharing of my interpretation of Sherlock, in crochet and knit.
I used the crochet Bleuette pattern for the basic doll, modifying it just slightly: two extra rows in the torso, one extra row in the thigh, and remove two stitches from the buttocks. I chose Vanna's Choice Baby in lamb for his pale skin, and purchased a wig from Antina's Doll Supply.
Sherlock's shirt and pants are crocheted in size 10 crochet cotton, his scarf is knit in size 10 Cebelia #931 (steel blue). His overcoat is knit in Vanna's Choice dark grey heather, and the shoes are crochet in size 3 crochet cotton.
