Watercolor Doll- With or Without legs

A sweet little Waldorf inspired doll and a fairly fast knit for the little girl in your life.
She is knit entirely in the round and this pattern includes optional legs. The doll I’ve knitted without legs (top picture) is knit in a gorgeous variegated yarn from Wisdom Yarns. This particular colorway inspired the name “Watercolor Doll”, a lovely pastel paint box.

This pattern is rated easy-intermediate. It is knit entirely on double pointed needle and at one point uses 7 at a time. It uses very simple increasing and decreasing techniques and you will be picking up stitches for the arms. The hair is applied fairly simply.


The body (not including the arms) is 2” wide.
Without legs she is 9.5” long, just over 10” with legs.
