  1. I've been looking for one myself, but haven't been able to find one. I've ordered a vintage for a soft sculpture doll by the same creator of the cabbage patch doll, and after I make that one, I may try to make something similar in crochet. It wouldn't be exactly like cabbage patch because of copyright issues. I'll try to keep you updated on if I decide to try something like this. I did a rag doll pattern several years ago (chiffon doll) so I'm sure I could figure this out too, once I see how they go together.
  2. WOW They are all so great. Love all the color combinations.
  3. I've finally gotten a pic of my round ripple!!! I had a lot of partial skeins of Caron SS so I decided to do a scrappy one. I still have a way to go before I'm finished. It will be going to Project Linus. Enjoy!
  4. Everyone's looks great!! I took a pic of mine this morning and brought my camera to work thinking I could download it here, but there is no card reader in my computer and I don't have the cord. I guess I'll have to post this evening from home.
  5. I started working on one last weekend. I guess I joined this CAL without even knowing it! Everyone's here looks great. I'll post pics of mine as soon as I finish.
  6. Thanks again all. They were quicker to do than I thought they would be. The hardest part was deciding which one to do first.
  7. Alisha, You're right about the controversy. I emailed them myself and they said that the instructions were correct as written. They then sent me a page explaining the instructions. I never read the email instructions, but finally figured it out myself in one of those 'A-Ha' moments. What I found funny is that each character had a different way of attaching the legs/arms/etc. It's like someone different wrote each pattern (which they probably did). Anyway, the instructions were correct, they just did a bad job in explaining the directions. Illustrations would have been great.
  8. For all those who are interested. The patterns were not that hard to follow. The secret is just counting carefully. It's all just single crochet and slip stitches. The Pooh leg was confusing, but if you just realize that you have to skip the chain between the single crochet behind the leg, then it makes sense. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask me, now that I've figured it out, I'd be more than happy to help others. Believe me... I frogged the legs more than once trying to understand the directions. I also actually had nightmares over those legs.

    Pooh & Friends

    The gang's all here!!!! Finally I have them all done. Now, what am I supposed to do? I've ordered some teddy bear patterns but they are not here yet. These were done using a Leisure Arts book "Pooh & Friends Crochet". I used worsted weight yarns and mostly a size G hook. There were such fun to put together. Now I just have to find a place to keep them until I have grandchildren. Oh, I have to make another Tigger for my daughter (the Marine), she fell in love with it. Enjoy!
