Shades of Blue – Krissy’s First Outfit

21 Oct

Here is Krissy in her very first outfit. Unsurprisingly this is yet another wonderful creation by Odile at Passion Poupees. With barely any adaptation at all I was able to use her recently posted outfit for her doll Ann Estelle, who is about 25 cm tall (I think).

As Krissy is only 20 cm tall I thought that I would have to amend the number of stitches or rows quite drastically. Au contraire, all I did was use a 2.50 mm crochet hook instead of the 3.00 mm hook that Odile uses (bearing in mind the fact that I crochet very tightly this effectively means I used a hook about 2 sizes smaller). And I omitted one row of trebles to reduce the length and it is a perfect fit!

I was lucky that I already had some Drops Delight available in shade 04 (pale blue), but it is quite tricky to use with such a small hook as it varies hugely in thickness and has some loose fibres.

Somewhat unluckily, however, I did not have enough to make the sleeves of the dress, so yet again I have (inadvertently) made an outfit more appropriate for summer.

Still she looks really cute in this lovely frilly dress with a beautiful wide collar.
