New Waldorf Dolls

This doll is from my own pattern and I love how she turned out.  I wasn't sure how I would feel about the mohair yarn for hair but I really love it. It was much harder to crochet the cap for the wig because the stitches are hard to see.  The hair is sooooo soft though and it was worth the trouble.
Here she is with her hood up.  The mini cape is also my own pattern.  I am working on a longer version.

Here is my FAVORITE.  Her hair is fantastic and I think she just has a great look about her.  Her hooded sweater is hand knit from Cascade 220 superwash.

Here is one I made prior to the other two.  She os from the first version of the pattern  tried.  She is lovely as well with her super soft mohair hair and a hand knit hooded sweater.  Her body is thinner/more slender than the other two dolls.  After making both styles, I think I prefer the fuller body.  It costs a little more to make because it takes more wool stuffing to fill but I like the end result.  The doll below is still one of my favorites though.  SHe doesn't show well in the photo due to my poor digital photography skills.  This picture makes her look washed out but her skin tone is more peach than it appears here.
All the dolls have wool felt shoes from a pattern I made as well.  I like how they turned out because the tie style makes them good for feet of varying sizes.
