Marlie's Daytime/Nighttime Topsy Turvy Doll
My little lady has ALWAYS been a little mamma. I had a topsy turvy doll as a little girl, and adored it. I’m hoping she will love opening this up on Christmas morning. As opposed to Cinderella, I’m making a day dress/nightgown version.
I’m knitting the body in the round, stuffing the body, then finishing sewing the top of the head closed.
K5, (k2tog) 5 times, k10, (k2tog) 5 times, k5.
I am using a couple of modified charts for the skirts.
Nightgown: Purple and white allover flower pattern (found on pinterest, link goes back to a Tricksy Knitter page)
Sundress: Tulip garden on a white background. (The oldest reference to the original image was located on a Russian website: http://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/6509/165682663.9/0_96fbf_8…)
When making the sundress picot edge, I will change to green two rows after the picot edge row to make grass from which the flowers to grow. I will also be crocheting a pink overskirt to blend into the pink bodice.
