I can't believe how adorable these are!

At first, I read the word "linguinie" as "Lingerie", and I was thinking "What's so funny about lingerie?" Then I closed out the browser and a few hours came back, reread it, and realized it was linguinie, which instantly made me giggle. Haha!

I would love to see a pattern of these... I totally want one!  Grin

Lol, the orange one look like me! I love how they look so different than other crochet dolls I've seen. I like their little stockings too.

Too cute! The orange one does look like you!

I love these...super cute name too. Linguine...*giggles*

Good job with these, they look so well made. I'm so jealous I can't crochet.  Cry

Those are soooo lovely! Did you put wire or pipe cleaners in the legs? They look quite sturdy. I'd love to make something like that!

Although the legs are rather stiff, they're just crocheted with a bit of polyfill in the foot. I did crochet them really really tightly. The recommended hook size for the yarn I use is 3 to 4 mm, but I crochet it with 2 mm to ensure that it's super tight, and never shows any stuffing.  Grin

i really want to crochet little girl dolls, except i can't seem to find good skin color yarn Sad( i've been searching everywhere.

maybe it's because i live in hong kong. anyone know a good place in hong kong for skin color yarn?

Finding good skin tones can be tricky, but if all else fails, you could work your way around it by just using different colors. Off-white, although very pale, seems to work quite nicely, especially for a geisha, gothic or porcelain doll type look. You could also use any pastel, and use an equally bizarre but nicely coordinating color for the hair, and call it an elf, a mermaid, an earth elemental, or what have you. I'm thinking of trying out some odd colors for these as well, and see what interesting combinations I can come up with.  Cheesy

Also, I found that it doesn't need to be an exact match to "read" as skin tone when used on a doll. It mostly needs to go well with the other colors on the doll. For example, the color I used for the pink-haired one seemed a bit too glaringly peachy on the skein. But when it's on the doll with other colors, I think it works well.  Smiley

And lastly, if you do find a color that you like, buy it in bulk!  Grin
