From my previous blog, I have shared with you a little history on how I started to make knitting a hobby. I was always fascinated by dolls when I was young, that's probably the reason why I decided to knit dolls over wearables or bags. In addition, I have a lot of nieces and nephews and giving them hand knitted dolls I made seems like a great idea. The decision was made, I started searching the internet for patterns of cute dolls I could make. I searched... searched... and searched some more but only few caught my eye (and were free) to knit. Until I came across Jean Greenhowe's patterns. There's only one problem. Actually, two problems..... 1. The patterns are not free 2. I can't find anyone selling it here in the Philippines. Thanks to a generous soul in the US (my sweet sister), I was able to have some of Jean Greenhowe's booklets shipped to me. Since then I have knitted a lot of dolls from her patterns. I decided that I will feature the dolls I made from her pattern designs. Today, I will feature the first pattern I made from her booklet and will showcase more on future posts.
Presenting first: Annabel and Edward from Jean Greenhowe's Dolly Mixtures.
