Patriot’s Daughter – 18” doll
This outfit is a remake of the “Jingo” pattern I did for the 14” CPK. By doing a very different colour set, I got a very different impression.
I used 4.5.mm 5.mm and 5.5mm hooks to make this. The yarn is all worsted weight. I used Red, white, navy, gold and brown. I also used some plastic canvas to form the drum.
This pattern is in no way historical (hysterical maybe ) it is just plain fun.
Join all rows…
Legs, make 2 and do not break off after the 2nd one is made…
With navy and a 5.5mm hook… ch 21 and join.
Row 1: hdc around… secure navy,
Row 2: with white work one row of sc around. Break off white.
Row 3-6: with navy, work evenly in hdc
Row 7-9: randomly (and staggered) increase by one on every row (24 hdc after row 9)
Row T1:Align the two legs and join with 5 sc. Immediately begin working in hdc around… 6 stitches before the join, change to DC, then work 3 Tr into the joining stitch, continue in Dc for 6 sts then return to hdc to finish the row.
Row T2: Work hdc in hdc and dc in all dc & tr across row.
Row T3-T7: work evenly in hdc.
Row T8-T10: work (hdc, FPdc or BPdc) ribbing across row break off and tidy all ends.
Locate the three Centre Back stitches. Sc in 1, 2sc in next sc in last. Ch 1 and turn
Hdc evenly across
Divide for individual straps now
Hdc in 1st, 2 hdc in next, chain 1 and turn
Work evenly for one row (3)
For three rows work a bias effect. Work two stitches in the outside stitch and a decrease in the other stitch,
Continue working evenly until the strap meets the button at the front. Work a button loop. Break off and tidy ends.
Repeat in a mirror version for the other strap.
Add buttons or trim as you wish. I wanted the “fun” effect of the large buttons but I almost changed them. Do what works for you.
With white and 5mm hook… chain 4 and work a 3 stitch sc ribbing (sc in Back Loops Only) for 28 rows.
work a tight chain 5 for a button loop. change to 5.5mm hook
Row 1: Work a row of sc increases so that you add 20 stitches – (48 sc)
Row 2: work evenly in hdc. Secure white.
Row 3: with red work… Sc in 7, hdcV-st in next, sc in 8, hdcV-st, sc in 14, hdcV-st, sc in 8, hdcV-st, sc in 7. secure red.
Row 4: with white… sc in 4, hdc in 4, V-st in V-st, hdc in 10, V-st in V-st, hdc in 4, sc in 8, hdc in 4, V-st in V-st, hdc in 8, V-st in V-st, hdc in 4, sc in 4.
Row 5: work individual back and front sections in HDC.
Row 6: work individual sections in red SC.
Row 7: work in hdc around sweater to join backs and front at sides.
Row 8: work hdc in white
Row 9: work sc in red.
Row 10: Work evenly in hdc in white
Rows 11-12: work (hdc/FPdc) ribbing in white.
Secure and tidy all ends.
These sleeves are not the best. I tried to follow the method for the CPK and the two arm styles are completely different. I would suggest that you remove a stitch in each white row you work.
Row 1: attach white yarn in base of armhole and work a row of hdc around opening.
Continue in the established stripe pattern (2 white in hdc /1 red in sc) for as long as you want your sleeves to be. You could end with the FPdc ribbing.

Work the standard circle pattern to7th row in whatever colour pattern you want.
Row 8: work hdc decreases over your increases from row 7.

Row B3: hdc dec, hdc to last two, hdc dec.
Row B4: sl st, sc, hdc in 4, sc, sl st. Break off and tidy all ends.
With White and 4.5mm hook Make a top and a bottom…
Begin by working a standard circle pattern to a size you want for your drum. I did 6 rows.
Turn good side down and work a row of FPsc in each stitch around.
Work a row of sc around break off and tidy ends. Cut a piece of plastic canvas that will fit snuggly inside your drum top and bottom.
Work the body of your drum in Red working in a tight sc for as many rows as you need to fit inside your drum top. I did 9 sc for 35 rows.
Stitch the ends of your drum body together and fit it inside your drum top. Cut a piece of plastic canvas long enough to fit inside and have about 1.5 inches of overlap on the ends.
Place your drum bottom on the drum body and secure a very long strand of a golden yarn in a stitch on the top. Work back and forth from the top to the bottom with the gold yarn. Work in every 4th stitch. I secured each stitch rather than just making a running stitch. It just looked better and seemed more secure.
Attach a brown yarn in the same stitch as one of your gold joins. Make a chain long enough to form a lanyard for your drum.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.
However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.
Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.
