Jasmyn

I go through periods where I can't seem to stop making dolls...obviously this is one of those periods :-)  Jasmyn is another doll from Fiona's wonderful free Travel Doll pattern, available on Ravelry.  She will have an Asian themed outfit, I hope, if I can pull it off in knit. 

This doll is the perfect, perfect doll to make for gifting at Christmas.  She is quick to knit, classy, has a lovely long and lanky silhouette; a great canvas for doll creation.

I'm pretty sure there will be more dolls and outfits coming.

  1. She is real cute. I only crochet, but I'll tell others about your new doll.

    Love, Margaret

    1. Hi Typs,

      They aren't exactly stuffed; what I do is leave a very long yarn tail and run it back and forth in the leg with a blunt tapestry needle, which sort of stuffs it without stuffing it. Works nice, and you don't have to worry about white stuffing showing through.

  3. You're having a pretty productive week! How many of these dolls have you made now? I think I might have to make Mindy a friend or two...

    I love her leg colours. Did you alter the feet as well?

    1. I get a little crazy...Jasmyn is my fourth Travel Doll :-) I keep wanting to try different faces and hair styles. And, I just love the rhythm of easy knitting. These girls will either become gifts, or contributions. Fun for me, and fun for someone else.

      I did alter the feet slightly, to define them a bit more, and I stuffed them with a tiny bit of fiberfill and loose yarn ends.

      I definitely think Mindy needs some friends :-)

  5. Oh Beth! Your latest travel doll obsession is just amazing. You took a base doll pattern and made it fabulous. I do so much want to knit this doll but for now I must content myself and drool all over yours. Am crocheting for our December charity giveaways.

    Hugs,

    Joyce

  6. For the charity giveaway, my quilt group makes quilts for single moms and also for preemies. So, I'm making a baby blanket in crochet and donating some dolls to make room for all of the Travel dolls that I want to make.
