Hi Chitra,

Lovely to hear from you. I haven't actually made any knitted comfort dolls but I am familiar with the pattern. I can't see a pattern on the KAS site but if you Google you will find lots of patterns and ideas. I believe Pam Johnson has made a lot so if you're stuck she may be able to help.

Hope you're successful as they are very popular,

Christine

Yes, there is a lovely friendly atmosphere isn't there and I enjoy it being world-wide. I was just thinking that you in India asked a question from someone in Australia who referred you me in England and now you have just commented on a toy made in Greece. All so that we can send goods to South Africa - gives you hope for the world doesn't it.

Hi Chitra,

Glad to hear that you're trying the hand puppet pattern. The ears aren't separate, they are part of the basic pattern. You just sew a diagonal across the corner of the folded head and pull the thread tightly which will cause the 'ear' to curve a little. Allow the corner to be bit bigger than you want the ear to be - hopefully the picture I took some time ago for someone else will show what I mean. It isn't a difficult pattern and once you've made one and got the idea you can easily adapt it to make other animals.

HI Chitra, I replied to your question about the hand puppet but thought I would add it here as well.  4 ply will be fine.  Now that we have the Hand-Warmers pattern in the KAS Pattern book children will have something to keep their hands warm and the puppets can be used as puppets.

Looking forward to seeing a photo of your puppet !   Linda

Thanks Chitra! I tend to crochet very tight. Maybe that's the reason. Can't wait to start my next bunch.

Hi Chitra,
I wouldn't worry too much if it curls a little, just make sure it measures close to 8 inches when it's laid flat. Thank you for your compliments, but I'm no expert, just have a lot of free time to practice :). You sound pretty busy with your physiotherapy, take it easy. Good luck!

Hi Chitra, I am not very good at crochet but I asked a friend on the site who is good at crochet if she could answer your question.  Thanks for the happy comments on my pictures.  I like to knit and it is fun to figure out picture patterns.  I am just finishing a sweater and some plain jane squares right now.

Hi Chitra,
Arlene asked me to help you with the crochet question you asked her. I'm presuming you are working in single crochet like the pattern book says to? If so, then make sure you "chain 1" at the end of every row. If you don't, the it makes the corners tighter. Also, on the first row, work the first sc into the second chain from the hook, not the first. Hope that helps! Cherry

Welcome Chitra from Vancouver, Canada.  There are so many lovely people on this site and they are always ready to help if you have any questions.  I love to look at the photos page for inspiration from other people's work too.  Again, a very warm welcome!
