I have been happily employed making Hittys from Joyce's wonderful Crochet Hitty pattern, which you can find here:
Hitty, A Crochet Doll
She is very simple to make, and just the perfect, slender bodied Hitty. My girls are, from left to right, Hitty Daisy, Hitty Rose, and Hitty Ivy. Each of them have tights crocheted on with Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight yarn, with bodies of Knit Picks Palette, and hair a combination of Palette and a laceweight mohair.
Here is a nightgown pattern to share as well; the flowers are crocheted with size 12 perle cotton, which is pretty fine. I used an Irish rose pattern and a simple forget-me-not pattern from my pattern stash. You could use your own favorite flower pattern, or embroider or silk embroider the flowers, or simply tie a silk ribbon to the front.

And all of my Hittys are looking for a new home!

After moving the books off the top shelf, the girls think this will be a perfect place!
