Harriet - 18" doll

Recommended Posts

This pattern is my version of two outfits worn by Harriet Vane who is Lord Peter Wimsey's love for life.  These are from the story "Have His  Carcase".

 

One outfit is for hunting clues and the other is for hunting husbands (eventually :rofl )

The PDF is Here:Harriet.pdf

 

I love the Peter Wimsey series and still can't choose between Ian Carmichael and Edward Petherbridge for Peter and don't get me started on Bunter :wlol

Harriet – 18” doll

 

I am a big fan of the Lord Peter Wimsey stories and I have been enjoying “Have His Carcass”. This set shows 2 of Harriet’s outfits from the BBC production of the story.

 

Red heart soft touch in 2 shades and a WW yarn in claret colour.  A pinky variegated yarn will do for the scarf.

 

5.mm, 5.5mm and 6.mm hooks.

Elastic waistband

e-dc – extended dc:

Work 3 hdc in corner st, hdc along left back edge,

 

Mark Centre Front of neck, work [dc in 1, 2dc in next] up to 2 from CF…

Work 2 tr in next, ch3,slst into next 2, ch 3, 2tr in next, continue in [dc in1, 2dc in next] to end,

 

Work in hdc along right edge making buttonholes as you go,

 

Work one more row of hdc/post stitches along bottom of sweater.  Break off and tidy all ends.

tr in 3,

e-dc in 4

dc in 6

hdc in 32

dc in 6

e-dc in 4

break off and tidy ends.

 

If I were doing this again I would have made it much longer to tie better.

 

“Claret” dress…

 

 

This dress is worked from the waist up and then from the waist dow

 

w/ WW yarn in claret colour and 5.mm hook ch 36

 

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and across.(35sc)

 

Row 2: *sc in 5, 2sc in next*end w/ sc in 5. (40sc)

 

Rows 3-6: sc evenly

 

Row 7: hdc in 7, slst in 6, hdc in 14, slst in 6, hdc in 7

 

Row 8: hdc in7, ch 10, sk to next hdc, hdc in 14, ch1, sk to next hdc, hdc in7.

 

Row 9:{RS} hdc in 5, work a double hdc dec over 2hdc and 1 ch st, sc in 8 ch, work a double hdc dec over 1 ch st and 2hdc, hdc in 10,  work a double hdc dec over 2hdc and 1 ch st, sc in 8 ch, work a double hdc dec over 1 ch st and 2hdc, hdc in 5.

 

You should now be at the right-back top edge

 

Edging around bodice…

 

 

Work sc along right back edge making button loops as you go.

 

Along waist edge work [sc in 1, ch2, sk 1]

 

Sc along left back edge,

 

Work along top edge in sc making double dec at ea corner.  Break off and tidy any ends.

 

Return to waist…

 

Att yarn and work dc in ea sc and 3dc in ea ch2 space.( I have 70 dc… close is good enough)

 

Row 10-11 : dc evenly and join at the end of row 11.

 

 

Row 12: work in dc staggering 4 increases around.

 

Row 13: dc evenly.

 

Repeat rows 12 and 13  2 times

 

Rows 18-20: dc evenly. 

 

 

Edging… work sc/ch2 in every dc.

 

Flimmery bits…

 

 

Att yarn at shoulder top.  You will work over that  and 2 sts to the back.  [slst in st. work ch17,slst in same, ch15, slst in same] as designated.

 

The idea is to get to a “Waltz” length gown so you are likely best at deciding when you get there.  Do as many rows as you need keeping the established pattern.  I think I went a row too many but it is waltz length.

 

 

Note: those interesting blobs are turtles… seaside… turtles… get it J

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

 

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

 

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

18.011.20055 is the latest Acrobat Reader version (I have Windows 10 if that matters), and the PDF was formatted correctly for me as well.  Sherbear, maybe check to see that your version is up to date?

I wish I'd been able to watch the Wimsey series on TV back in the 60s-70s, it wasn't something my folks wanted to watch so I missed out.  Only recently just saw a movie where he was portrayed by an American, of all things (Robert Montgomery).

that was "Busman's Honeymoon".  I could never watch it because of Ian Carmichael and then Petherbridge.  Actually,  I don't care for that story... just couldn't get into the characters or the story.

Yep.  It was a little (a lot) convoluted, but then I like the funky old whodunnits, with amusingly twisty plots.  Not gory, just plotty, 'Col. Mustard in the drawing room with a paper clip' sort of stuff.  I've been enjoying the Father Brown Mysteries on PBS recently, reminds me (a bit) of some of Agatha Christie's stuff.
