Bella the Ballerina
Bella Ballerina practices her pirouette. To knit your own doll you just need to use 4 stitches; knit, purl, a kfb increase and k2tog decrease.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the ballerina and photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the ballet slipper straps which are a single crochet chain. If you don’t know how to crochet you could embroider the straps onto the legs, or tie a length of yarn around the legs instead. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colour at the end of a row (knit stripes), and sew seams.
