Crocheted Blanket Doll Pattern
Posted 23 September 2004 - 11:42 AM
I was refered to this message board by Rachel from Crochet Pattern Central. I am looking for a pattern. When I was little I used to have a doll that was crocheted. The body of the doll was in the middle of the blanket. The blanket was only 15"x15" maybe. The body was stuffed and the doll had a plastic face, hands and feet. Does this sound familiar to anyone or do you know where I could get this pattern?
Thank you for your help.

Welcome to Crochetville. I hope you stick around. I"m sorry, but I havne't heard of that. (Of course I'm probably not old enough to have seen them. )
I hope you find it! It sounds really cute.

Oh gosh, all I'm getting for some reason when I try to picture that is a doll I had that was made from fabric. She was Little Red Riding Hood, stuffed like a pillow kind of but with a dress, and when you turned the doll upside down and lifted the fabric dress, she turned into the big bad wolf. I know it isn't similar, but now I can't get that out of my head.
I'm guessing the doll's dress formed the blanket? :thinking1

Start with a 15"x15" square, in the middle is a small stuffed rectangle 5"x7" (body) with crocehted arms and legs also stuffed; all one piece. Then you have the plastic doll head, hands and feet. Then you take the sides and wrap them around the middle body.
The measurements are all guess because the real doll is in FL with my parents, that is if it survived the hurricanes, in storage. If I had access to the doll I could try to design the pattern but there is no telling where it is in all the boxes. If I ever find it I will post it for everyone to enjoy. I loved that doll and hope to make more.

I have one of these! My grandmother made them for my sister and I. She used to put her hand on the back and put her fingers in the head and arms and make it move. I'll see if I can dig it up and get a picture!

Thanks for bringing back that memory!

I have a doll similar to what you've described... I don't have the pattern for it and I can't even share a pic of it yet, but I'll try to get hubby to hurry up and do his thing so I can ok?
My doll was given to me a couple of years ago, and she isn't attached to her blanket, she's wearing a ruffled dress (crocheted) and sits on the matching blanket (though the lady that gave me the doll didn't give me the blanket bc her cats claimed it lol) I'll get her out and see if I can figure out the pattern (no promises there I am WAY new to the pattern thing but I'll sure try) and post pics if it sounds like what you want.
Marvie (trying to remember where that doll is at the moment.... )
