Halloween Theme – Katie and Krissy Get Spooky

28 Oct

Here are Katie and Krissy all dressed up for Halloween.

These two dresses are from Odile’s site Passion Poupees. The dresses were adapted from Odile’s pattern for her Paola Reina baby doll posted on Tuesday. This doll is 22 cm, so close in height to my Corolle Mini Corollines (who are 20 cm). I adjusted the width, though, by reducing the front by 2 stitches and the back by 6 stitches and it is a very good fit now.

The yarn used is Patons 100 % cotton 4 ply in shade 1741 (orange) and shade 1712 (black). For once I actually used the same crochet hook as Odile – size 3 mm.

The hats were the result of a long and frustrating search on Google, but I think have turned out very well. The pattern was created by me! I tried to adapt various patterns and kept having to rip them back because it looked wrong or didn’t fit properly. So I gave up trying to follow someone else’s pattern and just crocheted (this also resulted in a fair bit off ripping back too!)

I am quite proud of my effort and am going to create a tutorial in case anyone else wants to make the hat.
