Amigurumi 'Shelly' Girl Doll

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® - TiffanyTM

GAUGE:

20 sc + 27 rows = 4 in. [10 cm].

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sc2tog (sc dec) (Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 sc decreased

Amigurumi 'Shelly' Girl Doll Reviewed by julia Neenan on 2013-06-11 ****
I enjoyed this project. Really cute doll, but I can't seem to get the head attached so it doesn't flop. The scarf helped to stabilize it. I made her with multicolors of yarn to match a baby blanket I had just finished. It will be an awesome gift.
