There are six lovable dolls which fit snugly into the Donuts - baby girl and boy dolls, chef, party girl, snowman and clown. Should you wish to add more commemorative details, these can be written on a cardboard circle glued to the centre of the donut base.
There are also 4 adorable ducklings -prehistoric duckling. cowboy ,pretty Miss Duckling, with a flower-trimmed hat, a tiny purse and ringlets and Christmas duckling with cosy scarf and a tasselled cap.
Then there are the Pop-ups! These little toy baubles will be ever so popular with the children. Pushed into the Donuts, only the caps are visible. Pull them out and the smiley faces are revealed! The Donuts can also be used as containers for children’s party treats and for people who knit for charity, the dolls, ducklings and Pop-ups by themselves are perfect knits for fund-raising. The average size of the dolls and ducklings is 12cm [4¾in] in height and the Pop-ups measure just 5cm [2in]. All measurements are without the caps and only small amounts of yarn and stuffing are required. The Donuts measure 13.5cm [5¼in] across the diameter and require about 30g [about 1oz] of yarn, including the icing.
Playful Puppies (20 pages)
Knitters who are familiar with Jean’s work are aware that she rarely designs animal creatures as they are in the real world. And here are her latest creations – Playful Puppies. Ten adorable puppy knits, all dressed in fanciful costumes - not realistic, but lots of fun! The basic puppy measures 21cm [8¼ in] in height from the soles of the shoes to top of the head, not including the headwear.
Only 40 grams [1 1/2 ounces] of yarn oddments are required for each puppy and the same amount of stuffing. The heads, hands and ears are knitted in light cream or fawn shades, which complement their colourful outfits perfectly.
All the puppies are constructed in the same basic way. The legs, body and head are knitted in one piece. The shoes and arms are made next then the individual details are added for each character. We have no doubt that knitters will enjoy making Jean’s Playful Puppies, just as much as children will love them as playmates.
