Aimee has an eclectic dress sense, she’s a confident and strong-willed Character.
She’s wearing high waisted shorts over funky striped leggings and a cropped body warmer over her long sleeve Tee shirt.
Aimee loves to play with colours- she frequently tries new shades in her hair, she’s chosen bright pink and accessorised it with a purple flower.
This pattern is suitable for confident beginners- All the doll, clothes and accessory pieces are knitted flat and use basic shaping.
Aimee dolls head, body, legs and feet are knitted in one piece from the top down. The arms are knitted separately and sewn on. This means that there is minimal seaming required.
If you prefer to knit in the round using DPNs or Magic loop method, this pattern adapts very easily, simply join to work in the round and place your round marker at the row end position.
Check the recommended needle size for your yarn and use a needle 1 size smaller. This will give a close textured stocking stitch which will hold its shape well when stuffed

What others have made
My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
