Loom Knit a Doll

Loom Knit Dolls – Easy

Loom Knit a DollI looked for a guide on how to loom knit a doll. I wanted to make some for my Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes and Reliefshare.org. During my internet quest I found A LOT on how to crochet all kinds of patterns for knitted dolls. Well, I don’t know how to crochet so I didn’t need any of those patterns.  But by the grace of God I woke up on a Saturday at 6 am with all the instructions in my head.  The end product is a video on YouTube and what I hope is an easy picture tutorial below.

My cutie: The Ball Dolly. .. is precious to me.

She is easy to assemble but you must have 2 preemie loom knit hats which are easy to make.

If you don’t know how to make a preemie hat scroll down to the bottom of the article for a video tutorial.

    I found using preemie hats to be too small. Maybe I was just too fumbly to make it work.
    I made one with the 31 peg loom and it seems to have worked better for me.
    So super cool! Loved making it.
