What you need to know

Use easy stitches and DK yarn to knit Val Pierce's classic rag doll toy

This is Charlotte and she is dressed in her prettiest frock ready for a springtime outing. Naturally, with the changeable British weather, she needs a hat too. At 40cm tall she’s a great size for playtime and little ones are sure to love playing dress-up. Why not knit the outfit in different colours or with different stripe effects so Charlotte can have a whole new wardrobe!
