Samantha Baby Doll- Pattern

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a pattern for an adorable doll knit with Cascade yarns. She is stuffed with a small amount of stuffing but mostly she is stuffed with pellets which gives her the most soft, cuddly, and floppy feel. She also has a more realistic weight. This pattern comes with the directions to make the doll, diaper, jumper and bow. This is a wonderful toy for any child to enjoy!

After a while, we are left with lots of small “scraps” of yarn. I came up with this pattern so that we can use up our yarn scraps. Meet Scrappy Snake!
