Fred Doll

Lion Brand« Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

DOLL
Wrap A around cardboard 26 times. Cut a length of A, and thread doubled into large-eyed blunt needle. Insert needle under all strands at upper edge of cardboard. Pull tightly and knot securely near strands. Cut yarn loops at lower edge of cardboard. Cut a length of B and wrap tightly around loops 1 1/2 in. (3.5 cm) below top knot for neck. Knot securely; thread ends into needle and weave ends to center of Tassel.
Separate 6 strands on each side of Tassel for arms.
Divide strand on one side into 3 groups of 2 strands each. Braid for about 2 in. (5 cm). Wrap ends with a length of B, then trim just below wrap.
Repeat for second arm.

Wrap remaining strands of Tassel with B about 1 1/2 in. (3.5 cm) below neck to make waist.
Divide strands below waist tie into 2 groups. Wrap each group with B for 'knee' and 'ankle'.

FINISHING
With B, embroider straight stitch eyes.
Trim all ends.

Fred Doll Reviewed by Katie O& 39;Neill on 2010-06-23 ****
I like all of the tassel dolls and have made a girl and a boy. I don't use the yarn they say to, I just use the yarn I have of my choice. I am thinking of having a stand and selling them.
