Doll One from the Petals to Picots CAL

8 Aug

On Monday Kara, from Petals to Picots released the first doll pattern for the Matryoshka Doll CAL.DSC_0828Excitedly I got to work. It came together really quickly and was easy to follow.

I made mine with 8 ply acrylic yarn and a 3mm hook. To me it seems a bit small so I might make another one with a 4mm hook and see how that one turns out.

This little project has also introduced me to embroidery, which I must say I love! I have learnt the lazy daisy stitch and a french knot.

I can’t wait to get started on doll number two next week!Image
