Franklin Habit Dolores #16 Jingle Bell Flock PDF by Franklin Habit
Do you see what I see? You’d have to try hard not to! In the festive season, Dolores can’t contain her merriment. Her joy overflows like ten gallons of eggnog in a five-gallon punch bowl. This year, she demanded a new party piece–something that could go from a snowball fight, to caroling, to sitting on Santa’s lap. Or anybody’s lap. So we present the Jingle Bell Flock ensemble: twelve days of fun congealed like grandma’s jello mold into just one outfit. From the fairy crown (trimmed with mistletoe to encourage canoodling) to the candy cane leggings, every inch is like another rousing chorus of “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.” The simple intarsia sweater defies description, so look at the picture. And yes, that is a fringe made of Christmas lights. Pa rum pa pum pum, baby. Buy the knitting kit to make your own Dolores doll here.
