This adorable doll is oh-so-cute, and the perfect present for that special little one. Children love to play dress-up with her sweet outfit, and wrap her up warm for winter. She is packed with detail, so take your time to get all the little parts looking as perfect as possible. Cute little cables and pompoms adorn the scarf, and all the dolls clothes are easy to take on and off--perfect for playtime! Pattern includes directions for a Kitchener-style bindoff.

Technical tips:

  • Knit to a tight tension so the stuffing doesn’t show through.
  • Use the yarn tails to sew up each piece so the colors match perfectly; run the ends into the stuffing for the doll pieces, and trim the ends neatly on the clothes.
