New crochet pattern book from Annie's
In the book, there are patterns for creating four 13-inch dolls, each with an assortment of crocheted accessories. The patterns are written at the intermediate skill level and call for worsted-weight yarn, with row-by-row instructions, a stitch guide and additional instruction for completing the projects.
Crochet Your Own Dolls & Accessories sells for $8.95 and is available online from the Annie's catalog website at AnniesCatalog.com.
Connie Ellison is the book's editor. She has been with the company since 1979 and is the editor for all Crochet World magazine special interest publications and serves as crochet product development director for all Annie's crochet pattern leaflets and books. In addition, she is the crochet merchandiser for the Annie's direct mail catalog, maintaining yarn and pattern information for the catalog website.
