Marin the Spring Horse Pattern is Finished

Marin and Kye



I finished Marin the Spring Horse today. She’s a whole 16 inches tall and wonderful to hug and carry around. Kye loves her! I will have her pattern in my shop soon after the test knit.

Some more information about her, I’ve knitted her in worsted yarn on size 3.5mm needles, the mane and tail have been made with handspun Merino yarn and the body of the pattern including the ears takes approx 170 grams of yarn. This pattern is knitted flat, all in one piece on two needles. The ears are sewn on separately.

Chat soon ♥

April 1st, Germandolls


Welcome to our new sponsor Ulla, who creates the most beautiful handmade dolls and sells them in her Etsy shop, Germandolls.

German Dolls4

In Ulla’s words:

In an age when everything is made of plastic and synthetics, my cloth dolls are handmade with pure wool and cotton, natural materials that warm to body temperature as they are held. Have you ever hugged a plastic baby doll on a cold winter morning?

My soft, warm dolls are unique, huggable, and as individual as the children – young and old – who love them! I fashion my dolls using Waldorf techniques. It is an old tradition of making cloth dolls developed in Germany around 1900.

According to the Waldorf philosophy dolls should be made from what nature has given us: natural fibers such as sheep’s wool, mohair, and cotton. The dolls have a unique inner head construction which gives form but not detail to the face. Often the dolls have very simple features, sometimes no features at all.
