Hi, meet Holly!

She is my very first knitted doll and she turned out not too shabby eh? Her pattern is based on the Little Red Riding Hood doll by Jean Greenhowe in the book Knitted Toys. For the cheeks, I used makeup, which worked really well! The book; however, recommended rubbing on red pencil crayon but I was worried that the colour might turn out blotchy.

My challenge for any dolls that I might knit in the future is to make them look more modernized. Any suggestions?

On a side note, doesn’t Holly look like Molly from the Big Comfy Couch?
