This is my first poppet.  I followed ghilie's pattern as closely as possible...but decided to leave out the ears and tail.



Her hair is a full skein of Red Heart Boutique Treasure in "Watercolors."



I planned on different clothing, but nothing was turning out the way I wanted, so I knit her up a kind of 70s inspired dress instead.  I just made up the pattern as I went along.  The yarn is Patons Beehive Baby Chunky Yarn in "Swifter Sea."  



I made her fingers posable by stuffing them with pipe cleaners.



Though she is not what I originally envisioned, I still really love her!

Beautiful! The hair is so fun, and good call to leave off the tall and ears. Smiley

She looks amazing! I love love love her hair, and her dress is so cute.  I've never used the tail when I make poppets. I like them better without.

This is a lovely looking doll.  I think her multi-hued hair is great and putting pipe cleaners in her fingers to provide articulation was a clever idea.

She is very lovely. I like her multi-colored hair & those eyes are great! l love the knitted outfit. I use pipe cleaners in the fingers too, it helps to make it look like veins on top of the hand too.

She is absolutely gorgeous!  That hair is just amazing, and I like it both down and pulled back.
