Snowdrop Flower Fairy Toy Knitting Pattern
Snowdrop Flower Fairy Doll Knitting Pattern
This is my first flower fairy design. When I was young, I remember buying my first flower fairy poem book, by Cicely Mary Baker, in Canterbury, U.K. This is my inspiration for this design.
The Snowdrop was probably introduced into Britain in the early 16th century. There are 19 species of Snowdrops and are called 'milk white flowers' due to looking like drops of milk hanging from a stem.
The Snowdrop Fairy has a skirt of petals and wings. I have used Sirdar Snuggly Pearls DK to give a bit of sparkle to the dress & wings.

What others have made
I love Knitting & Stitching, any spare time I have, you will see me busy clicking needles or stitching with thread.
I hold a City & Guilds in Hand Embroidery & Fashion. I started designing knitting patterns & embroidery patterns in 2012.
I enjoy the repetitiveness of knitting and I love creating dolls from a variety of inspiration. I have combined my interest of historical and national costume into my doll designs. My dolls are based on Grodnertal/ Dutch Wooden Dolls.
My embroidery designs are based on Folk Art/ Naïve Art & Tartans. My maternal side is descended from the Stewart, Bruce, Campbell, St. Clair & Buchanan Scottish Clans.
My work is completely original and my designs are simple to make. All my knitting patterns are worked flat, with two needles, but they are easy enough to knit on the round.
I hope you enjoy looking at my patterns, as much as I enjoy designing them. Jo x
