Christmas Eve! – Shona’s Lovely Xmas Tunic

24 Dec

Bonjour, mes amies!

Here is Shona in her lovely new dress. This is made from a pattern by Esyram (at Dans le Pupitre d’Esyram) which is designed for the Boneka dolls.

I have no idea what size these dolls are, but I know they are smaller than les Cheries, so I increased the needle size to 3.00 mm and hoped for the best. Surprisingly it fits very well, although as I was knitting it, I wasn’t sure if it would turn out as a dress or a tunic!

I think using the colours red and white give the outfit a festive air and I am very pleased with the way this dress looks.

Of course, the most obvious way to make the outfit look festive is to add a Santa hat!

Shona’s hat comes courtesy of Marie at Les Voyages de Capucine. A simple and effective pattern that creates a very cute hat.

I used the yarn, Stylecraft Life 4 ply, shade 2306 (Cardinal) and some old white 4 ply from my stash.

I think Shona looks like she is ready to join Patricia and Annie for Christmas.
