Feel Better Friend #4
My fourth Feel Better Friend, for a tiny Club Foot warrior. Children with club feet (ankles that turn inward, outward, or downward) wear a set of boots and braces for as much as five years after birth, after several casting and manipulations shortly after birth to orient the feet into the proper position. So the sweet girl receive this doll has several years of braces ahead of her.
I was lucky to find that one of the knit sweaters in the Arne & Carlos book fit this doll almost perfectly, changing to DK weight yarn and size 3 and 4 needles. All I had to do was shorten the sleeves slightly.
She is on her way to her new home, and I am on my way to making some tiny cloth dolls!
