Frankie is looking forward to his first Halloween! He’s a wee bit worried that maybe he’s not big enough and won’t be able to scare anyone yet.
This little Frankenstein doll is knitted flat and seamed, his arms are made separately and sewn on.
Basic stitches are used through-out and simple embroidery is used to create the detail on this doll.
Safety eyes are used, and optional instructions are included for creating knotted yarn eyes.
This pattern is suitable for confident beginners- basic shaping stitches are used, knit front and back to increase, and knit two together to decrease.

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
