Meet Lucy

I dug out my copy of Jean Greenhowe’s “Knitted Toys” last week, and as soon as I saw this little doll, I just knew I had to make it for my daughter. I say little, but the doll is slightly over 18 inches tall! She’s a proper cutie, with blonde plaits and a full wardrobe of dressing up clothes. I’m going to call her Lucy.

This was a great project to use up some of my scraps of acrylic yarn, so I made Lucy a purple frilly pinafore dress and a traditional button-up cardigan in pink. The pattern includes instructions to make a hat, scarf, mittens, jumpsuit, dungarees, trousers, waistcoat and another dress, so I’ll probably knit up some more outfits in the future.
