**What's that coming over the hill, is it a monster?**

No, not a monster exactly but a handmade crochet dolly for my little Number 2.

Dolly beginnings

Being a beginner in this big ol' crochet world, and having no idea where to start, I looked for some inspiration and found one of my mum's knitting books by Fiona Goble, 'Knitivity'.

So I used Fiona's knitting pattern for a basic doll and had a go at converting it into A crochet-amigurumi pattern. Not too bad, I think, even though it looks a bit mental.

Bare dolly!

Ahh, much improved by the simple addition of chain stitch hair..

Dressed doll

A little crochet dress helps things along too. Much less monstrous. (Although I think I made the dress a bit too wide at the bottom and not quite long enough for my liking- I'll have another go soon)
