Ysolda Poppy PDF
Meet Poppy, a sweet little doll who would make the perfect gift for any child. Or, if you can’t bear to give her away, she’d love to be friends with you too. Knit seamlessly in the round from the top down Poppy is quick to knit from small amounts of yarn. Instructions are given for her cute mary janes and dress, but dressing her is a great opportunity to get creative.

Needles: US 2.5 (3mm) DPNs or circulars for your preferred method of knitting small circumferences in the round
Gauge: 13 sts = 2” / 5cm in stocking st. Exact gauge isn’t too important and the size of the doll can be varied by using yarn in different weights. The important thing is to work at a reasonably tight gauge so the stuffing can’t poke through.
