Here’s an excerpt from my new children’s book, Knit, Hook, & Spin for an easy-to make doll that can be both a stash buster and a charming little pal for someone. Since it’s summer and you have a young person that wants to learn crochet, why not make some together?
Just crochet (or knit) a simple tube, changing yarn color for shoes, clothing, face and hair. Stuff, stitch ends together and pull up gathering stitches to make the neck. Stitch through the body to soft sculpt the arms and legs. Add some embroidered eyes (or not) and some tassels or chains for hair or a pompom on the cap, and you’re done. Now on to the next one!
