Doll in a Moses Basket

I was asked recently if I could knit a little doll in a Moses Basket and I’m so glad I took on the project.

The Moses basket is knitted in a chunky yarn to make it sturdy and is 9″ in length. It comes with mattress and pillow and a  blanket to keep the doll warm and snug..Baby2

The handles of the Moses Basket were made by plaiting several strands of yarn, and securely attached to the basket. Baby4

The little doll is 5″ high in a sitting position and is knitted in DK and the clothes in 4ply. They  certainly have a lot of play value, and would make an ideal gift for a little girl who is about to become a big sister!

Made another doll in a lilac outfit, who seemed to suit the Moses Basket as well

Might be an idea to make a Moses Basket for twins!
