A quick post

Someone asked how much yarn it takes to make one of the Free Spirit dolls, both the original 12 inch doll and the seven inch Mini.

I can get at least two of the larger dolls out of a 3 oz skein of worsted weight yarn, and three mini's out of the same.

Hope this information is helpful, and enjoy the crochet :-)


  1. Hi Beth this isn't pertaining to your post above,but any way first I have 2 of your nature spirits done also I made 2 fisically disabled ones but getting to my question I want to make a couple of boy type spirits and Iit won't take muck to convert but I was woundering about the eyes,any sugestions. Oh by the way I'm going to post my spirits tomorrow can't to night have to power up my camera,thanks for letting me rattle on...Diane

  2. Hi Diane,

    When I look at my green Nature Spirit, I actually think it looks more like a boy, and he has the almond shaped eyes. I think I would leave off the eyelashes, and use a less pink color for lips...maybe a rosy brown shade instead. Short hair also helps :-)

    I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!
