My love of Disney is no secret, but in case you need a refresher, here goes: I LOVE DISNEY.
Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about the ways in which I could express that love through my knitting. Disney films are full of color, and there are so many ways in which that can be harnessed through creativity. I’ve been doing some stuff inspired by the colors of characters’ clothing or of lands in the theme parks, but I was still left wanted to do something more explicitly “Disney.”
And what screams Disney more than knitting a doll based on one of the characters?
When I first thought of this idea, it was really just a dream. I didn’t have a knitting pattern for a doll, and most patterns I found were either too small, too ugly, or too crochet. I love crochet, but I wanted this to be a knitted doll. I was adamant. If I was going to throw myself into this big project, I wanted it to be done with the craft I preferred.
So instead, through much trial and error, I made up a pattern for the doll myself. I probably ripped out thousands of stitches before I was finally done with even just the body – never mind the three times I attempted that dress until I finally got the shape I wanted – but I got it the way I wanted. A large doll with substance: perfect.
I’ve started selling them in my second Etsy shop (check it out here!). I’m almost done knitting one inspired by Princess Anna from Frozen, and have Ariel, Elsa, and Rapunzel lined up.
So happy with how this turned out!
Hey! I’m writing up a pattern I’ve designed for a knitted doll. I’ve been wanting to make dolls for a while, and I couldn’t find a knit version that I liked enough.
Would anyone be willing to test out the pattern for me? Obviously, I’d send the pattern to you free of charge. I’d ask that you knit it as written and let me know if anything sounds weird, doesn’t work, stitch counts are off, instructions are confusing, etc.
It’s not necessarily a quick knit, and would require seaming and assembly. But would anyone be interested?
Let me know by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or sending me a message here. (Also, I’d appreciate a reblog, if you’d care to!)
