Made with Lion Brand Jamie Baby and Caron Simply Soft Brites.  I used a g-hook throughout, and with the exception of the face, there's no sewing required on the project.  She is, 100% a crocheted doll [or 99% if you do count the face work].  I worked from the head down, and worked between stitches on the bottom of her head to attach her body and then worked between stitches on her body to put on her arms and legs.  One leg is slightly longer than the other, but that's the worst I can say for the first attempt, so I'm very happy with it.

The hair is my real pride.  I attached the pink yarn with a single crochet stitch to a point on her head, crocheted a chain, then reattached to a different point on the head with a single crochet stitch.  Lather, rinse, repeat, and you get a full head of hair.

Overall, she was really easy.  the Jaime tried to split on me a few times, but I figure if that's the worst I can say on an improvised project, then I'm doing pretty good.

I've got a hook and I'm not afraid to use it.

Look at the hair!

I love the hair Smiley

(I kinda feel like you should add her on a wee crocheted peg leg! Surely Molly wants to be a pirate. Arrrrr...)

Love the design is it your own or someone else's?  If your I would love a tut.  If someone else's I would love to see a link to the design.

It's my own design, but I don't have a pattern written down just yet.  It's getting worked on, but requires some pictures to explain some of the process.  I'll be sure to post it once it's ready to go.

Glad you like it!
