Dress-Me Doll



     I designed this for a little girl who LOVES to dress-up her dolls. Its size makes it easy to hold; and very easy to work up. I've already made some clothes for her to wear (the dress in the second picture). I hope to have the patterns written up in the next week or so :)

     5.00 mm crochet hook
     Cornmeal worsted weight yarn
     Coffee worsted weight yarn
     Black worsted weight yarn
     * colors are based on Red Heart Super Saver yarn
     stitch marker
     stuffing material
     yarn needle
     scissors

Abbreviations Used:
     Rnd(s) --- round(s)
     ch --- chain
     sc --- single-crochet
     st/sts --- stitch/stitches
     sc2tog --- single-crochet 2 stitches together
     slp st --- slip stitch

Notes:
     --- Be sure to move the stitch marker up as you complete each round.
