No anigurumi here
My daughter was enchanted with the anigurumi dolls in a book from the library, so I decided to give them a try. In a fit of rationality, I bought only one skein of yarn to try only one pattern, to see if I even liked crocheting toys. After an hour or two of hand-cramping effort, I gave up, and in frustration, whipped out the ensemble above.
The pattern for the hat is from the Knitters Handy Book of Patterns, the mittens from here, and the scarf of my own informal design. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in "Soft Green" and I used US7 DPNs.
These items are more toddler-sized than newborn-sized, but I had to knit something while waiting to find out the baby's gender. Impossibly tiny pink socks coming up soon.
