This doll was originally going to be something completely different. I’m not sure what happened between the head and upper body, but it’s not going in the direction I had originally started. I should probably get back to sketching out
Everybody changes their mind. It seems to happen frequently, over here, at Knot By Gran’ma. This time is no exception. The original plan to have a crochet pattern for the hat that the Holiday Monster Doll wears, only in a human size(s), has been changed. I can’t get through the hat.
