Charming crochet dolls are crafted into four fun characters—a nurse, a beachgoer, a student, and a rainy-day girl—in this photo-filled guide that provides patterns for colorful 13” dolls and their accessories. These intermediate-level projects use soft worsted-weight yarn and incorporate bead, bow, and button embellishments. The dolls are each accompanied by instructions for themed accessories, such as a stethoscope and baby for the nurse, a sun hat and flip-flops for the sunbather, a backpack and books for the schoolgirl, and a raincoat and umbrella for the rainy-day doll.
