My beautiful little Elizabeth turned 2 years old yesterday! We had a nice quiet day and had her Grammie and Uncle Daniel G over for dinner. She was very happy, and I love seeing my beautiful girls happy!

So while I was deciding what to give her for her birthday, I came across some leftover Red Heart Super Saver Yarn that I had used for the doll I made her for her 1st birthday. Thus, I was inspired!

Ever since I made my niece the Princess Sophie Doll by the Friendly Red Fox, I love making dolls. It’s so fun to make something that I know my girls will love. And I knew that Lizzy would love Blue Eyed Betsy. And I was right! The moment she opened her gift, she held Betsy so close and wouldn’t let her go. Warms my heart.

There’s a special kind of joy that comes from making a gift for someone who you know will appreciate it. My little girls are my biggest fans. I hardly have time to take photos of my projects before they jump on them and ask if they can play with them. So, needless to say, I had to hide Blue Eyed Betsy from Lizzy while I worked on her.

I used mainly Red heart Super Saver Yarn for Blue Eyed Betsy, but the dress was some Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice in Denim Mist that I had left over from my Women’s Flower Hat I made last year. Since they are very close in weight, it worked very well.

Here’s to hoping Blue Eyed Betsy brings you as much joy as she has brought me and my sweet Elizabeth! Happy Crocheting!

Gauge:

8 dc x 5 rows = 2 inches using 4mm hook

Pattern Notes:

  • Body, head, and arms will be made in continuous rounds with no slip stitching at the end of rounds.
  • Legs through to head will be one full piece. Arms will be attached later.
  • Body, head, arms, and hair hat will be made using a 3.75mm hook.
  • Hair and dress will be done using a 4mm hook.
  • Round 29 of body will seem strange, but it will make sense. You are adding stitches, so that the toes of the legs will be facing the proper direction. If you need to adjust how many stitches will be needed to make the toes pointing out, please do so. There is no specific number of stitch you must use, so just pay attention to how your product is working up.
  • You have the option of adding a wooden rod to stabilize the neck. I used the stick that comes in a bag of poly-fil and cut it down, so it will fit from body to middle of head. This will keep the neck from falling back once the hair is added.
  • Add eyelashes after putting in safety eyes, but before putting washers on the backs of safety eyes.
