    She is lovely. I often have problems with hair but this pattern makes it easy and looks good. I plan to knit a whole corps de ballet in various pastel colours.

    Haven’t made her yet, but can’t wait. If she is anything like the other pattern’s I have had she will be great

    I have the wool to knit this lovely doll, but at the moment we are having a heat wave and the daily temperature is in the 40’s peaking at 47. so the Ballerina will have to wait until it cools down.

    She’s so pretty

    Just finished knitting the Ballerina, and made a couple of changes with the eyes mainly, and also knitted the dress and shoes in pink – she’s so lovely, just make sure you sew the top tutu on before the bottom – well I found it easier – well worth the knit
