I created these cute dress-up dolls for children to love and to enjoy lots of cuddles and play. They have knitted hair which will always look neat and tidy! Billy doll wears pair of dungarees and a cap whilst Joe doll has a pair of trousers and a jacket. Both dolls have knitted in T-shirts, underwear, and boots, the dolls and their clothes are knitted flat and seamed This pattern has row by row instructions and a clear making up guide. There cap has a peak worked with picked up stitches, I also give an alternative version with a sewn-on peak. This 12-page pattern has printer friendly pattern instruction pages (These contain no illustrations or colour printing.) The making up instructions have full colour illustrations to help guide you through finishing your knitting project.

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.
