Three Best Friends!



I do love making dolls, but they are a lot trickier than bears and rabbits. So much time and energy goes on getting the faces and hair just right. If eyes and noses are a fraction out you can easily end up with a ‘Bride of Chuky’ style doll! On the plus side though you can have a ball choosing and matching colours for your project.


Jenny Doll

For all three of the dolls I used Ala & Ela’s Valerie Doll pattern for the head, I do like the shape of the head and the hair on this doll, although I have given the dolls ringlets rather than plaits.

Jenny is taller than the other dolls, measuring 13 inches. I made her legs and body slightly longer and gave her boots rather than shoes and socks. I knitted her a little duffle coat and and a pull on hat for cold blustery days.

Jenny Doll 3

She does look quite snug and ready to brave the elements.


Polly is a sweet little doll measuring 11.5 inches, and has a lacy dress with picot edging.


She is knitted in DK on 4mm needles.


and has a matching cardigan knitted on 3.25mm needles.



Amy is a similar doll, just in different colours


The hair is knitted as a skull cap and sewn to the head, and you can add plaits or ringlets.


A great gift idea for little girls of any age.
