Josephine, an old fashioned girl
Josephine is a knit China Doll, created from the pattern by Sarah Elizabeth Kellner, available on Ravelry. This lovely knit China Doll is constructed very much like the antique originals, with swing legs, torso and arms of a contrasting color, and a knitted shoulder plate with head that attaches seperately to the torso. It is a masterpiece of knit engineering, and produces a sweetly old-fashioned doll that can be your starting point for your own collection of knit China dolls :-)
With DK/Sportweight yarn and 3mm needles, my Josephine stands just at 14.5 inches tall. Her camisole and pantaloons with the lovely knit lace are part of the pattern, and fit like a dream.
