The folk art styled images are drawn with simple lines. They can be colored with colored pencils or crayons.
For a fun variation, try printing our coloring pages on watercolor paper. They are knitted flat and are sewn together. Also, directions are giving for adding a face and hair. Few things bring more joy to a child than snuggling with their special doll.Over time we will be using this basic pattern to make many different dolls. The stockinette stitch creates vertical lines and a smoother surface. Just like clothing, the horizontal lines of the garter stitch tends to make the dolls look plumper, whereas the stockinette stitch with its vertical lines, makes the dolls appear thinner. These will be used for sewing up the dolls. Work in garter stitch or stockinette stitch for 10 (16, 20, 26) rows.
You will now have 20 (30, 40, 50) stitches.
Sherrie Schoon videotapes her doll collection - watch the video around 48 seconds - one of the dolls puts its arm down.
Knit across the row, treating the 2 separate legs as one. Continue working in your pattern for 16 (24, 32, 40) rows. Work in stockinette stitch for 10 (16, 20, 26) rows. Use the yarn tail at the crotch to sew up the back of the body. Tie it off with the matching yarn tail where the body meets the head. Work in garter stitch or stockinette stitch for 12 (18, 24, 30) rows. Weave in the yarn tail that you sewed the seam with and clip. Position the arm 1 or 2 rows below the neckline, with the arm seam against the body. The arms should be at the dolls sides but slightly towards the front of the doll. Make the second arm in the manner described above and attach. Because these are knit and sewn together in the same fashion as the larger dolls, refer to those pictures if you need clarification. Work in garter stitch or stockinette stitch for 14 (18) rows. Work in stockinette stitch for 6 (10) rows. Slide the needle through each stitch as you remove them from the knitting needle. Later, this will be pulled tight to gather the stitches. With right sides together, sew the seam until you reach the head. Weave in the yarn tail that you used to sew the seam and clip. Using the head yarn tail at the base of the neck, sew up the back of the head. Tie off this yarn and weave in the tail and clip. Using a yarn needle, pass the remaining long body yarn tail that is at the neckline from in inside of the doll to the outside. This will be used later to form the head. Pull the yarn tail at the top of the head that was slipped through the stitches. By pulling it tightly, you will gather the top of the doll’s head. If you have wrinkles around the top of the head, try adding a little more stuffing.
If so, simply sew the hole closed by making little stitches across the hole. Tie off the thread, and work it into the doll. Using a running stitch, go in and out of every stitch all around the neck. When you’ve gone all around, pull the thread firmly to create a neck. When you are pleased with the shape of the head and neck, tie off the yarn, and work the thread into the doll and clip the thread. Every effort is made to share information in a clear and accurate manner.

I don’t speak fluently “english knitting langage”!
I hope to find some time today to be able to make this beautiful family.
I think these dolls are perfect simple as is. Great first baby doll without any additional adornment. The pattern on their website didn’t look much like my body, but yours does. These are perfect and your directions are so clear. Thank you for posting this at what must be a difficult time. Maybe with a larger needle than the patten calls for?
I have made gnome hats but was saving the directions for a different post.
I prefer to use 100% wool because it stands up to play better than acrylics which tend to ball up over time.
Basic Knit Doll In 6 Sizes
Because dolls will be played with by children, they will need cleaning from time to time. This is probably the size of many of the baby gnomes you see around.
I intentionally threw 1 through the wash. The hat was in a stockinette stitch and the body was in a garter stitch. They body did felt, with the hat felting a little more because of the stockinette stitch. The doll was lightly felted, and the change in size was slight. When you finish knitting the head, bind off instead of sliding the needle through the stitches to gather. Felt the body and arms in your normal fashion. Sew a running stitch around the top of the head and pull to gather. Then sew a running stitch around the neck and gather. Now my son wants one of him too, and doesn’t want to give this one up to gift to her.I guess you need to get busy knitting a new one for your son. Your time and kindness will make 15 children very happy.
I am a self-taught knitter who is moving into the intermediate range!
I love when talented people aren’t afraid to share their talents with others!!!!
I can’t figure out the double pointed needles so flat patterns are good.
I have a feeling i will have many requests once this one is done!
Stock Box Repaint!
Ty Tanium Steampunk Monster High Doll Ooak Custom
In this Stock Box episode, we use all sorts of found objects to create a new character. From Monster High's Deuce Gorgon to Ty ...
When you get it all done, we'd love to see a photo.
I definitely need some practice on that part. Since the elf on the shelf says that you arent supposed to touch the elf or it loses its magic, i am changing the rules… the new rule is that it needs a hug every night to keep its magic!
And such a great use for my yarn i got on sale on black friday!
My stitches go from tight to super loose, and dropping stitches.
I would like to make the dolls, add faces and donate to a kid in a hospital as an alternative to a teddy bear or other stuffed animal. My group of knitting friends are going to start on these and we will keep you posted.
I am a welsh woman, married to a scotsman, who just loves to knit.
I have never mastered knitting with circular needles, but will keep trying.
I make similar dolls to yours, always using up leftover yarn. She wouldn’t use comforters or traditional teething rings, just chewed her clothes and bedding!
I think that came from being exclusively nursed by my wonderful, natural daughter, and she never wanted anything synthetic in her mouth!
I made the dolls with 100% cotton yarn, with a smaller doll to go inside instead of stuffing.They also include a satin border to rub between fingers. Every time someone comes to look at this pattern they will find your suggestion. Thanks so much for taking the time to share with us.
I use your instruction and this is my doll. It’s very quick, fun, and very easy to customize.
I also made a dress based on this pattern as well.
I also shared the pattern as a knit in the round version. Many people have asked for clothing patterns. Sorry i do not know how to add pictures of my doll to this text or other wise i would.
I translated the recipes for the gnomes and dolls and modified a little bit to make some instructions clearer. Learn how your comment data is processed. Craft along with us or join in our homeschooling adventures!
Thanks so much for considering this doll for your fall 2011 line!
We have created a wildly compelling, network-quality reality show that, for the first time, can be distributed directly to the viewer in a non-traditional but very effective way.
You talk; he records up to 5 seconds of sound, and plays back. Ken® is one stylish prince fit for a fashionable princess.
We thought that was just so ripe with comic entertainment potential.
We didn't know what we were going to do with him, but we knew he had to be in the movie. So at a certain point we had to decide what he wanted to look like.
Ken sports the perfect outfit for his eco-adventure: light blue shorts and a leopard-print shirt with short sleeves sure to keep him cool in the hot sun. His accessories include matching scarf, sensible loafers and a fashion-forward gold belt. Ken® features ten points of movement allowing for poseable fashion fun on the runway or in the stands. Jacob doll wears ripped denim shorts and sneakers. We've explored this character, but it's not finalized," she added. This was a character we explored and that's the long and short of it. So what should we call these new arm molds?
The packages are shaped like a surf board to get you in the mood for beach party fun. It is a tough, emotional time, but as a community we will prevail. This is probably the best thing that has happened all year!
Ken® trademark and a specific male fashion line!
Both dolls wears hip shorts and a short sleeve button down shirt. Can you tell me if we could buy this doll here in the states or is this a foreign doll?
It was time to do some maintenance to the site!
Photos and/or information posted on the board may be saved and displayed in the resource pages, unless you specifically request otherwise in your post. Love these perfect models for your fashions!!!!
Love how curvy they are and their marvelous faces!
I also consider great doll boards to be a biggy for me!
She knows how to cut down on the work and the dishes!!!
I think the small size is nice, room for more dolls!
It would be easy to fall for these little cuties!
I think their caretaker must be a bit artistic. Yes, we do realize that these are just dolls but some of our members have let us know that they don't like doll nudity and/or suggestive photos. Children are able to view the board if they so choose and we don't want to hear any complaints from parents. Also, there are some adults who check the board at work and we don't want to get them in trouble, either. Please refrain from highly debatable topics such as religion, politics, etc.These types of discussions usually lead to name calling and are best discussed on boards specifically geared to these topics. The said line officially debuted in the spring of 2010. Sara wakes up under the car, but it starts to rain. She manages to pull her arm free and escapes from underneath the car. She starts to wander the desert with a mirror that she took from the car. He rushes to her and finds her without a pulse. A helicopter and medics come to take her to the hospital. At the very end of the episode she opens her eyes, and looks at him.
