Pepperpot Dolls – Winter Set

Winter is here… Bah Humbug. I don’t like cold or snow and the wind today was awful. 

But… the pepperpot girls love wrapping up warm for winter. So here’s a little something to keep your doll warm.



It’s a little crocheted hat scarf and glove pattern, hope you enjoy it.

I used a 3.5mm hook and oddments of DK yarn. The hat and gloves are worked in a continuous round begining with an adjustable ring. There are two finished for the hat, one with frills and one without. The scarf is quick and simple and needs one little button to finish it off.

1) Using an adjustable ring make 6sc in the ring and pull to close.

2) 2sc in each sc around (12)

3) 1sc, 2sc in next around (18)

4) 2sc, 2 sc in next around (24)

5) 3sc, 2 sc in next around (30)

6) (3sc in sc, 10sc, 3sc in next, 3sc) x 2 (38)

7) sc around

8) (sc in 17, sc2tog) x 2 (36)

Leave a long thread to sew the button on the scarf at the end.
