This is "Raggedy Sophie" doll from Embroidery Outlet. I made her dress removable, by not sewing together the top of the shoulders, and adding ties to close it. I made her hair by crocheting spiral curls. This is my first doll.

Love your Doll. Can you please tell me what material you use for her body?

Thank you. Sorry, I don't really know what it is, I got it in a box of quilt scraps from my mother-in-law after she passed away. I think it is mostly cotton though, off white.

Thank you! Yes, look at the very bottom post, I wrote it out. I forgot to mention I used an E hook, and the bangs were made a little differently. I chained 16 st., skip the first chain and then 2 single stitches in each chain to the end. If this is confusing to you let me know, but it's really easy to do if you crochet!

Thank you so much for the pattern, Yes I can work it out but don't know what an E hook is. Did you mean a crochet hook?. or is it a size of hook. Thanks again. G

Thanks, lol. I'm afraid my grand daughter will grab it up when she gets here tonight. But Embroidery Outlet has extended her sale. Why not get one and try it out? :)

Thank you, I'm happy the way she turned out. It's easy to crochet the curls. Just "chain" however many stitches you want, I did 101 ch sts, then skip the first ch and then 3 sts in each chain across. I used 2 strands of very thin yarn. I tried 4 ply yarn but the curl was too thick for me.

Thank you....I will try this....I make some for hospice children and need to make some more at this time. I also make some for the battered woman's shelter, (the children usually don't have a thing to hug and ease their pain).
