sleepy dolls knitting pattern
These friendly little dolls would be a great toy for a toddler or a snugly bedtime buddy for an older child. The dolls are floppy in a pleasing way and the whimsical stocking caps can be either striped or solid.
For best results, felt the dolls until no visible stitches remain. To be sure the yarn you are using felts, make a test swatch and felt it thoroughly.
