The Hitty Happiness Continues

Poppy, Violet, and Hazel!

I am still greatly enjoying making dolls from Joyce's Crochet Hitty pattern, as you can see :-)
She now has a knit sleeveless dress, bloomers, and cardigan that you can make as well:


Loving tiny dolls, I used Joyce's pattern to create a Mini Hitty.  She is 4 1/2 inches tall, with both jointed arms and legs.  She has a crotch tab to joint the legs to, similar to some wooden Hittys; the advantage being her hips are located more under the body, giving her a slimmer profile....wish I could do this!


And here is the pattern:


And as a bonus; she fits pretty nicely into clothing patterns designed for Mattel's Kelly doll!


This little outfit is a Kelly pattern by Crochet Crafts by Helga; the top fits great, the pants needed to be deepend in the crotch by two rows.  There are a LOT of free, and inexpensive, Kelly patterns out there.

Enjoy the crochet!

  1. Oh my dear girl, you have created a little Hitty sister. This is exactly how a pattern evolves and what I always encourage. And, a pattern in your hands becomes magical. I can hardly wait to make myself one. Thank you so much.
