Sweet dreams Lilly and May dolls knitting pattern
Lilly doll is wearing a sweet nightgown with a simple lace edging (The lace/picot edge is knitted as you cast off) she has lacey knickers, whilst May has plain underwear. May loves her pyjama set with contrast trim and both girls love to snuggle up in a cosy dressing gown and slippers. May prefers the plain slippers but Lilly loves her pink Bunny version. Their knitted hair with co-ordinated hair bows is very simple to do, and of course it will never become untidy! Both the dolls and their clothes are knitted flat on standard straight needles and seamed. Basic stitches are uses throughout for the dolls, which are knitted from the head down, the arms and hair are knitted and sewn on later. This pattern includes the dolls, nightdress, pyjamas, dressing gown and slippers.

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
