IZZY DOLL KNITTED PATTERN
“Izzy Dolls are copyrighted and cannot be used for financial gains.”
(Finished height should be approximately 5 to 6 inches)
You need: Small quantities of sayelle, sports weight or similar weight yarn. If using heavier yarn such as 4 ply, knit fewer rows. 1 pair 3.00 mm (# 12) needles. Polyester fiberfill for stuffing. Embroidery floss for face.
To make: General Instructions – You can work in stocking stitch (knit one row, purl one row) throughout or you can knit every row for the pants and change to stocking stitch for the remaining rows. Cast on 32 stitches
Work 4 rows for feet in stocking stitch. Change colour of yarn.
Work 14 to 16 rows for pants in stocking stitch or knit. Change colour of yarn.
Work 12 to 14 rows for sweater in stocking stitch. Change colour of yarn.
Work 8 rows for face in stocking stitch. Change colour of yarn.
Work the next 11 rows for hat as follows:
Rows 1 to 4 Work evenly in stocking stitch.
Row 5 Dec. 5 sts evenly across row: K3, K2tog; (K4, K2tog) 4 times
Knit to the end (27 stitches)
Rows 6, 8, 10 Purl
Row 7 Dec. 5 sts evenly across row: K 2, K2tog; (K3, K2tog) 4 times
Knit to the end (22 stitches)
Row 9 Dec. 5 sts evenly across row: (K2, K2tog) across the row
Row 11 (K1, K2tog) 9 times: K2tog. Draw yarn through remaining sts.
(You can continue with face colour for these 11 rows if you want to make a hat separately and sew it on afterwards, or if you want to add hair. For hair, cut 10 cm (4”) lengths of yarn. Attach hair to head as follows: With 2 strands together, fold in half to form a loop. Insert, crochet hook into a stitch on head, pull hair loop through stitch, then pull yarn ends through loop. Fluff out hair and trim as desired.)
To finish: (1) Sew sides together to form a center back seam. (2) Stuff head. Weave a single strand of matching yarn across the first face row. Draw up to form neck and tie tightly. (3) With matching yarn, define arms by sewing small backstitches through both layers from waist to 3 rows below neckline and then stuffs. (4) Define legs in same manner with small backstitches down the middle from bottom edge to just below waistline and then stuff. Sew up bottom edge. With matching yarn, weave a single strand around the waist and gather in slightly to form a waist. Repeat around the top row of the feet to form ankles. (5) Using 3 strands of floss, embroider eyes and mouth on face.
Notes: You can also make the illusion of hands as follows: Knit 14 rows for pants. Next row: K9 sts for pants, K3 in flesh tone (or whatever colour you are using for face), K8 for pants, K3 in flesh tone, K9 for pants. Next row: K8 for pants, P4 in flesh tone, K8 for pants, P4 in flesh tone, K8 for pants. Next row (changing to sweater colour), K8 for sweater, K4 in flesh tone, K8 for sweater, K4 in flesh tone, K8 for sweater. Next row: P8 for sweater, P4 in flesh tone, P8 for sweater, P4 in flesh tone, P8 for sweater. Continue stocking stitch for sweater for 12 more rows. These suggestions are just to let you know that wherever your talents and imagination take you, each doll you make will be wonderful and unique, and a little child somewhere around the world will love it.
