Mini Knit Dolls
If you can cast on; if you can do a knit stitch and if you can do a purl stitch, you can makes these collectible knit dolls. It does not matter if your tension is tight or loose. For best results, it is recommended that you use a 4-ply yarn, and a pair of 2.25mm (metric size) or size 13 (UK or Canadian size) or size 1 (USA size).
The yarn colours in the patterns are recommended only and you can substitute with any leftover 4-ply yarn that you have. The collectible knit doll’s hair is made from 8-ply yarn but you can also substitute this with any left over yarn that you have. You can actually use any size yarn for the doll, provided that you use only the same ply throughout. Otherwise, your doll might end up with a big body and a small head and vice-versa.
All finished collectible knit dolls in this section are about 5 – 7 cm or 2 – 3 inches in height. Your mini knit dolls are not just pretty cute things to be put up for display – they have been used as Christmas tree decorations, key chains and wedding favours. You can also use them as surprise fillers in stockings and red packets for Chinese New Year or you can put them all on your mantle piece arranged to tell a story!
The Mini Knit Dolls book series can be purchased from our AMAZON CreateSpace eStore by clicking on the book covers below. BUT you may just want one pattern, not the whole book. In that case, choose from the many downloadable PDF patterns available at our SHOP.
We hope you enjoy making these collectible knit dolls as much as we have enjoyed creating them. Happy Knitting!
