Winter Accessories for Emma – Pattern

Today’s post is the patterns for the hat, scarf, and mittens that I posted for Emma last week.

wp-image-1299533053jpeg.jpeg

These will fit an Emma doll made with a 3mm hook. If you use a 2.5mm hook for the doll I’d suggest using a smaller hook or a finer yarn. It doesn’t really matter for the scarf but with the hat and mitts you might want to try them on as you go to make ure they will fit.

This pattern is available as a free pdf download from my ravely page at: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/winter-accessories-for-emma

My Latest Doll + A Dress Pattern

Here is my latest doll. I posted her as one of my works in progress last month. It took just a little bit longer to finish her than I was hoping but she’s done now. She doesn’t have a name yet as that will be up to her recipient.

Her dress is made the same way as Alice’s and I’ve finally written out a pattern for it. The pattern is posted below the picture. It is also available as a PDF download on Ravelry.

If you try it out and find any errors please let me know. I try to make them as accurate as possible but I know what I mean to do so… J

Hook size: 3mm or 3.5 mm (if the doll was made with a 2.5mm hook, use a 3mm hook for the dress. If the doll was made with a 3mm hook, use a 3.5mm hook for the dress)

Stitches used:

  • ch: chain
  • sc: Single crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet

Dice Bag Pattern

Here is the basic pattern for the bags in my last post. Any stitch can be used as long as it’s tight enough to not leave big holes in the bag. For the Jack-o-lantern I did most of the rounds in hdc to keep the surface fairly even.

Emma Doll Pattern

It’s been almost a week since my first post so I guess it’s time for another one. I’m hoping to do at least two posts a week from now on. We’ll see if I can stick to that…
Anyway, today’s post is the pattern for the Emma the Elf doll from last week. It’s just the doll, not any of the clothes. I will eventually post clothes as well but I’m still trying to write down patterns. The problem with just winging it when you make something is coming back to it later and trying to figure out what the heck you did. 🙂
So, without any more rambling, here is the pattern for Emma:

Yarn: weight 3 (I use Paton’s Astra)
Hook: 2.5 – 3 mm ( I used a 3mm hook for Emma)

Stitches used:
Single crochet (sc)
Increase
Decrease
Bobble stitch

To make a bobble stitch: Yarn over (YO), hook through sc, YO, pull through sc, YO, pull through 2 loop on hook – 2 loops remain on hook
YO, hook through same sc, YO, pull through sc, YO, pull through 2 loops – 3 loops remain on hook
YO, hook through same sc, YO, pull through sc, YO, pull through 2 loops – 4 loops remain on hook
YO, pull through all 4 loops
