A pinch and a punch for the third of the month :)
I dont own a Kokeshi doll (not for a lack of trying), but I've seen many out there in blogland. And then super talented Cait designed 3 crochet versions of it... How to resist the tempatation?! Well... you dont!
The day Cait released her second set of patterns I was about to hop over to her shop and purchase the existing pattern to make one for a friend's birthday. Instead the new double trouble pattern was purchased and I set to work. Timing was perfect!
This one comprises the smaller doll body, topped with the bow. I then realised I didn't want to stitch green leaves onto a green body (so much for planning!) and went with the wee yellow and white flowers similar to the first doll. Of course the flower punch could not be found so they were cut out freestyles :)
It was one of the most fun things I've worked on I think. It may be because the pattern was so easy, the end result was exactly what you imagine and it didn't have any frustration or angst - for me which is rare!. And to say we were all completely in love with the little doll would be an understatement! I Will be making more!
You should definitely check out Cait's shop. Is she clever or what?!
