This is part of a gift I made for a friend's birthday. He read Twilight and likes to make jokes about sparkly vampires
, so my mom and I made a vampire kit for him. I knit this sparkly vampire doll to put in the kit.
He's kind of a mix between Edward Cullen and Dracula, complete with cape.
The body is knit in one piece. I used black yarn to knit his feet, legs, and cape, dark green yarn to knit his sweater/torso, and white sparkly yarn to knit his hands and face. I embroidered his hair and features.
I was very happy with how his hair turned out, even though it took me hours to finish.
I tried to choose a color similar to Edward's hair.
Here he is without the cape! I didn't use a pattern for any of this, I just made it up as I went along. I even cut some toothpicks to look like stakes.
Uh oh! Looks like someone got too close to Van Helsing.
