1  Knitted Hula Doll in Knitting: Completed Projects by GathGreine on: July 18, 2010 08:17:56 PM
Hey guys : )

I've been forum lurking ; ) for about 2 years now, but when I recently completed this doll, I just had to share it.  I hope I'm following correct posting etiquette, so if anything is off please let me know!

So my father's birthday was this week, and he is obsessed with Hawaii and tiki related things, so I decided I would make him a little hula girl to hang on his rear-view mirror.

I knit her without a pattern.  I used Knit Picks 'Palette' yarn and size 2.75mm DPNs.  I didn't have skin colored yarn, so I knit her body in cream, and then dyed her (stuffed and everything!) in tea!  She was knit in the round all the way down (one piece) and then I sewed a line down her to shape the legs.  The bellybutton was the same concept, just looped through and then knotted and hid in her lower back.

Her grass skirt, and Hawaiian flowers are simple single crochet stitches.  And then I embroidered her face on.  

I couldn't figure out how to get a nose on her so I left it out, but if anyone has a suggestion, it would be greatly appreciated!! Cheesy  She looked kinda like Voldemort before I put her hair on. ;P

Thanks so much for looking! C&C are welcome!
