I have been trying to crochet without patterns this year. One of the patterns I've been developing is a doll. I've given away two but finally have one to keep for our future child (which doesn't exist yet, but i'm keeping my best creations anyway). The pattern is loosely based on the Lily doll sugar and cream pattern but with a few less rounds for the head, and a straight body. The top one is Arabella, whom I'm keeping. The middle was made for my cousins' baby's christening. And the bottom is Lucy, made for a christmas present for Evangeline.
