You can see the picture this little darling was modelled from here.
I’m at the point where I just can’t get a good enough colour range in “normal” knitting yarns, especially when I prefer to work in cotton and rayon. So, I’ve started experimenting with cross stitch and embroidery threads. And very. Very. VERY. tiny crochet hooks. This is my first experiment with 6-stranded cottons.
Here’s an in-progress size comparison with one of the previous dolls.
And, because I’ve worked out a nifty little pattern for these myself and they’re impossibly tiny… and my favourite. While the other pieces in this design are knitted with the full 6 strands of thread, the octos are crocheted with a single strand.
