Granny is knitting her tiny scarf. She would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day or Grandmother’s Day. The doll is approximately 14.5 cm tall (including the hair bun). All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. Her glasses are made from jewellery wire, and the knitting needles are cocktail sticks. As these pieces can be sharp this is not a toy suitable for young children. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a kfb increase and a k2tog decrease, knit stripes, and sew seams.
- Instructions and photos to knit the doll.
- The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.
- Measurements are in metric.
