Step 1: Find a book the same size you want to make the doll's body. Wrap the yarn/wool around the long side of the book at least 50 or 100 times. Cut the wool/yarn.

Step 2: Take the wool/yarn off the book. Cut 2 long pieces of wool/yarn of the same colour. Put 1 string through the middle at the top and tie it.

Step 3: Take the other sting and tie it under the other sting so it looks like a head.

13. If you want, you can use beads or buttons for a face. Also, if you want it to be a boy doll, use shorter hair and separate the skirt into two parts, and tie near the bottom for legs.

Just to clarify, when you take it off the book, it looks like a loop or circle of wool, and you want to tie it off at the top centre, so there with be a little string knot at the top of the doll. Don't cut the string too close to the knot. Instead, let the string that you used to tie become part of the doll.

Patricia's sample was wrapped around a book 50 times. If you're trying to make a bigger doll, then wrap around more times. If you're making a little package topper, use less wraps.

Ok one quick question.... I am not sure what size I want the arms so what is a good way to determine what size boo I should use compared to the first book?

We've never made dolls the same size. We've always just eyeballed it. You don't want the arms to be too floppy, but you don't want them too short either. This part was a bit of trial and error for us.

I measured the one Patricia was making for the sample and the body is 9 inches and the arm is 6 inches.

But what you can do is take a length of wool, stick it under the head, perpendicular to the body and see what width you like for the arms. Just make it a little longer than that.

You actually don't need to use a book. You can just measure out some wool and go back and forth. It's just with Patricia, it was easier to use a book so that all the lengths were even at the end.
