Kara Doll

Kara Dress up Doll 




Made using worsted weight yarn and size G/ 4mm hook. Kara stands 18 inches tall.
Made starting from toe to the top of the head, no sewing needed to attach the arms. 



Gauge: Gauge is not a big deal on this pattern,as long as same size yarn and hook are used for all the pattern pieces.Since tension may vary in different circumstances,i suggest finishing the parts that must be the same such as arms and legs.
** You can use smaller hook size and other yarn weight to make your doll the size of your preference.
  Other items needed:
- safety eyes (16mm), beads, button, or your preferred method for making eyes
- tapestry needle for stitching head closure
- stitch marker

- To make the clothing fit,use the same yarn weight and hook size to make the Maya basic doll.
- If you have tendency to over stuff your doll, i recommend that you go up a hook size when making the clothing in this pattern
