Comfort Dolls

I've been making these little comfort dolls for weeks now.  They're easy, fun and quick to make on my Addi 22 hook knitting machine.

There are a million video's on youtube to teach you to use a knitting machine.  (I'll link a few at the end of this post).

Here's the Pattern for these little dolls.

On a circular loom or knitting machine knit the following rows.

8 Rows for the shoes
3 Rows for the socks
15 Rows for the pants (or legs)
13 Rows for the shirt
11 Rows for the face
8 Rows for the hat or hair

To add a shirt, I surface crochet a base layer. 


Adding a skirt involves doing a surface crochet at the waist and doing a triple crochet in each stitch. 

All of these dolls are made with exactly the same pattern.

The only differences are color and embellishments!
