New Design – Topsy Turvy Doll

LGC62-053.eip.pI have to admit to being just a little bit in love with this little lady. From the moment the yarn arrived from Let’s Get Crafting I knew she would be perfect. You can find the pattern in issue 62 of Let’s Get Crafting, which is on sale now. As always it’s full of inspiration for all skill levels and there are some really great projects this month. “Tilly” as she became known in our house, is an ideal first toy project, I deliberately set out to use simple increase and decrease techniques and if you haven’t “done” hair before, this knitted wig is very simple and perfect for beginners. I have a yearning to make a “fairytale” version of this doll, with long, long  plaits for Rapunzel.

If you are more confident knitter, knit the skirt in colourwork or stick to the plain design here. She’s “yours” now, so go ahead and make her just as you like!

As always, the photography is what really makes this design so special. Product photography is a real skill and the team at Cliqq have excelled themselves again. I know the Let’s Get Crafting team work hard to get the styling just right and I am thrilled with the pictures they have used for my little doll.

Also, thank you to all the readers who send in photos or post pictures on facebook of their makes. It’s a thrill to see my designs make their own way in the world!

Happy Making xxx
