I am still fairly new at knitting - I am making this doll for a charity  -
http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/b/better-homes-gardens/804/little-knitted-dolls/
Hope the link works?
The question is (I am making the first boy doll) do I need to make two and join or do I just make one and join?
I have read and re- read the pattern but I can not see the answer ...
TIA,
BonzaBlue

at the bottom of the pattern where it says 'To make up dolls' it says this 'sew sides together to form back seam from top of head to cuff' so you are only making one swatch-like part and then folding it and sewing it up...

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the goal to arrive safe and sound in an attractive and well preserved body but rather skit in sideways, Chardonnay in one and Strawberries in the other hand, the body completely wrecked and used and at the same time cheering… WOW, what a ride…

Thanks for that - can now use the small amount of green I have for the shirt / top!
Thank-you - knew I wasn't seeing the wood for the trees!

you're welcome...
when i was a kid and still living in germany we made a doll just like that
as our first knitting project and mine was huge cause i was knitting really loosely back then...
hehe...
those sound really good for using up scraps, now that i think about it...

My problem at the moment is I knit too tightly - I have slowly gotten better, when I started I could hardly push the needle through my stitches!!

if it'sonly on the first row then it might help you to use a one size bigger needle to cast on and if it's all the time then try to hold your yarn different, that's mostly why the stitches become too tight... hope that helps...
