Knitting - Rosie

Not quite the original idea!

(backstory here , updated here and here)


I have to say, the hair is a triumph BUT I'm not sure how secure it is!  Especially when pulling clothes on and off...
I used Rowan 4ply Soft, held double and knitted on 4mm.  Once I had a good size rectangle I gently washed it, then got fed up waiting for it to dry so put an iron over it!  I unravelled it and followed the pattern instructions for back stitching onto the head.  I may have to redo it more securely at a later date...

I'm much happier with the face.  Four Year Old seems happy too and now even likes the green jacket!  Now she needs a dress, socks and shoes.
