My Lammily doll arrived this week, and she’s wonderful. I feel like the photos don’t do her justice – you don’t actually realize how different she is from other dolls until you’re holding her in your hands.
I’m ridiculously happy with her, but there is one small problem… What she’s wearing isn’t exactly weather appropriate for southern Ontario at this time of year. I have plans to get her another outfit that includes pants and a coat but Lammily clothes don’t ship until January. So in the meantime, I thought I’d make her some warm accessories.
These were super quick and easy to make — they came together in an evening, while watching Netflix — so if you want to get these done in time for Christmas gifting, you still have time.
- 2mm crochet hook
- A light worsted weight yarn in your choice of colour. I used Patons Grace cotton.
- Yarn needle
Round 1: Make a magic ring. 6 sc in ring. Sl st to join. (6)
Round 2: Ch 1. 2sc in first sc, and in each sc around. Sl st to join. (12)
Round 3: Ch 1. [Sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc.] Repeat around. Sl st to join. (18)
Round 4: Ch 1. [Sc in first sc, ch1.] Repeat around. Sl st to join. (18 sc, 18 ch1)
Rounds 5 – 12: [Sc in ch1 space, ch1.] Repeat around. Sl st to join. (18 sc, 18 ch1)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Row 1: Ch 6, turn, and work 5sc across foundation chain. Ch1, turn.
Rows 2 – 59: [Sc in ch1 space, ch1.] Repeat across. Turn.
Row 60: [Sc in ch 1 space, ch1.] Repeat 3 times. Sc in last ch1 space.
Fasten off, and weave in ends.
Tassels: Cut three strands of yarn about 10cm (4 inches) long and, holding all three together, fold them in half so there’s a loop at one end. Use your hook to thread the loop through one of the stitches at the end of your scarf – a ch at the beginning end and a ch1 space at the end. Then use your hook to pull the loose ends of the tassel through the loop and give them a gentle tug to make a knot. (If you’re a bit confused, there’s a good video showing how to add tassels here, from about 2:40)
Lastly, pull apart/unravel the four threads that make up each yarn strand, then trim all your tassels to be the same length.
And voila! Now you can bundle Lammily up nice and warm.
