Cassidy and Noah

I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving, and that your Christmas preparations are more joy than work :-)  I came down with a bug a few days after Thanksgiving, and it is only now beginning to loosen its grip on my health.   And of course, I ended up sharing it with my husband :-(  Thankfully, both of us are on the mend.

Something better to share is Cassidy, a doll I worked on, slowly, once I started feeling better.  She is based on Deena Thomson-Menards Lottie doll pattern, which is freely available on Ravelry.  Those wonderful hands are from a tutorial available on her Ravelry group We Make Dolls.   I modified the feet so they would feet those darling baby booties that Cassidy is wearing, which is also a free pattern on Ravelry: sneaker booties on Ravelry.

Romper Pattern for Lottie Doll

Cassidy's puppy, Noah, is from a crochet pattern offered here a few years ago.  You can find it by scrolling down the left sidebar.  Look for the picture of the kitties and 'Links to my Animal Patterns'  :-)

Happy Holy Day season to all of you!!  Stay well.

  1. Oh Beth, Cassidy is divine. She looks like she can play with the boys and hold her own. Love her eyes an impish smile. I am in love with your latest knitted dolls putting your own spin on the Lottie pattern. Me thinks that my New Years resolution will be to learn how to knit with DPNS.

    Love her!!!

    1. Oh Joyce, I think you would love knitting on dpns, after the initial frustrations with it :-) It drove me crazy at first, but now it is the only way I want to knit dolls; no seaming is just part of it; its more like creating something in crochet as you can see the form evolve.

      And thank you, dearest friend, for your wonderful words! Cassidy and I say 'thank thee kindly :-)"

      Warmly,

      Beth

  4. Seriously cute, Beth. Ha she does look like a selfie. I had to have the Lottie and Chloe patterns. You have a great site and oh my, you are so very generous! What sized dpneedles did you use? I must learn how to do the hands and I really enjoy dpns. Been awhile. Thank you so much, I'm really enjoying myself.

    1. Hi Linda,

      I think I worked Cassidy on either size 3 or 4 dpns. I use a much smaller needle than Deena recommends. The hands pattern is definitely worth your while to try; if you can make and icord, you can do these hands :-)

      Thank you for your good words!

      Warmly,

      Beth

    1. Thank you, Jeanette! Yes, her eyes are buttons, some from a stash of buttons I've had forever :-)
