So, for a while I've been thinking about making woolen anime plushies, either knit or crochet. I mean, anyone who's into anime knows there are some characters you just want to give a big hug, so I wanted something I could work up relatively quickly that looked good and was nice to cuddle. Anyway, after going through a number of different patterns, this is what I've made -




This is Nanoha from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. I made her for a friends birthday, though my parents made fun of me all the time I was knitting her for making a boy a doll, they just don't understand geeks sometimes.

Anyway, I'm afraid the basic body pattern was from a knitting book I borrowed from a friend and have since lost the name of so I can't tell you that, but I think the fun part is making them into the character you want. For Nanoha, this meant the jacket and the skirt which weren't part of the base pattern. The arms were made as separate pieces which was good as I Incorporated the puffed sleeves into them. The sailor jacket is just a square, making use of the natural curve my knitting tends to produce to get the collar right. I then attached the arms to the jacket and tacked the jacket to the body to hold in in place. The skirt was made with a simple increasing pattern to the top, then split into four and I knit four blue triangles to fill the gaps, giving that flared effect. Her hair is tapestry yarn, I had some from an old kit and it's really nice to use for hair, I rooted it in the middle then split the strands to give her better coverage. The face and all the other small details were embroidered on to the finished doll.

Hope you like her!
