In this week’s knitting preview, we dip into our June 29 issue for a look at this fun toy.
You have been asking us to feature more toys in the “Friend”, so we have found a old favourite: a topsy-turvey doll. Twice the fun!
The main part of the doll works up in one piece, with the arms and hair added afterwards.
It is knitted on four double-ended needles. These may take a bit of practice if you have not used them before, but overall they are not too difficult to master. You could use a small circular needle, if you prefer.
You will need some toy stuffing, too, which is available from these stockists — or from your local craft shop.
These dolls make lovely gifts, and are always popular for charity fundraisers. They are also the perfect choice for someone who can only knit for a short time.
Why not make a child happy and start on one as soon as possible?
