Craft: Edward’s crochet doll emporium by Kerry Lord

I started making a doll on 24/12/17 and finished making it on 2/1/18. I finally decided to make something for myself. To make his hair a used the scraped yellow yarn which I don’t know the brand and then stone for the skin which I got from Poundland. I used a 3.5 hook and used the book Edward’s Crochet Doll Emporium by Kerry Lord. It was an easy pattern to follow I love how easy Kerry Lord has made the book easy to follow with you being able to pick a different hairstyle and clothes separate. I love how his hair came out in the end as he did start of as a girl. If I was to make this again i would probably make a girl and move the legs back slightly now for the clothes

I started making my dolls clothes on the 5/1/18 and finished them on the same day. I used the trousers are from c:15 in scrap yarn black. Tshirt i made in the most softest wool ever which was woman’s institute shade number 5930421016 I was meant to use 3.5mm but had to go up 4.5mm as it came up two small. I liked how the clothes came out the patterns is slightly different from the actual pattern but not by much. Next time I would make him some shoes but I don’t think I would change anything else.

I think the next thing I am going to make is a llama for the mascot for my page.

latest crocheting projects

here are the latest crocheting projects that I can show you they are both out of Kerry Lords Edwards Menagerie crocheting book which i love the first one was the squirrel

I edited his tail was meant to be loops but I didn’t like the stitch so changed it to what it has got.7

the last project I have done is an alpaca for my niece and here it is

as you can see its very colourful and bright. the top knot took the longest part to do as it’s a lot of chains. Kerry Lord’s books I would recommend to any crochet they are amazing.

until next time night everyone
