Babes' Little Sister" pattern. She is knit from Knit Picks Brava yarn in brindle, which is a wonderful, warm chestnut brown. Her stripey legs are a combination of Paton's classic wool in black, and Berrocco Vintage in blush and magenta. Her hair is a combination of two high mohair content yarns, which I really love for hair :-)
The Brava yarn worked up a slightly smaller doll than Bernat Super Value, but knitting is so forgiving that the outfits for Patience will fit Nutmeg.
I love this doll form; it is a simple, child-like body that knits quick and easy. A bit of a nose bump on the face turns into a delightful button nose with a couple of easy needlesculpting stitches.
If you don't like sewing knitting seams, here is a short picture tutorial for slip stitching the seams with a crochet hook. I like this method, as it produces a very strong seam with enought give for the knitting, and looks quite neat from the right side.
