This sweet little baby would be a wonderful first knitted doll for any little one.
Jo-Jo wears a cute multi coloured romper suite and a sweet pointed hat with tassels on it.
The hat is removable, to reveal a sweet little tuft of hair hidden underneath.
Jo-Jo has very few seams, and is knitted flat from the head down and the arms and hat are knitted separately
Jo-Jo is 38cm /15” tall -Just the right size for little hands to hold and cuddle.

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.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
