LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine | Peaches Keepsake Doll

Issue 93 of LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is out now with TWO brand new patterns in it from me! I’m so thrilled about them both that I’m going to have to do TWO separate blog posts again so I can tell you all about them…


If you are not familiar with LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine it’s readily available in major supermarkets and stores across the UK.  

This months magazine comes with:

  • Six Aloha yarns – including a special glittery wool
  • 4.5mm hook and 4.5mm needles
  • 45 exclusive patterns in a 68 page magazine

I was super excited to see that my little Peaches Keepsake Doll is the cover star of the new issue! 


She’s such a fun little dolly to make with enough to make two little outfits with the free Aloha pack which comes with the magazine.


You know sometimes when you make an amigurumi that the character just appears before you as you are hooking them – well that was certainly the case with Peaches. She turned out to be a sweet looking little thing.  And if you are looking for some tips on creating the personality of your own amigurumi’s I did write a post about it a couple of years ago which you can read here.

I can’t wait to see how you personalise your little dolls! Be sure to share your photos with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram) – I love to see what you make!

Stay tuned for my next unicorn themed pattern release update coming NEXT!


Pattern Test – Gerald Giraffe Doll by Knotted Notions

So it’s been awhile since I had any free time to test a pattern for someone and I do so love to test patterns for people, I find it refreshing to be the other side!  So when the Amber at Knotted Notions messaged me to share a photo of her “Gerald and Gracie” giraffe doll saying she had been inspired by my ‘Spot the Giraffe’ blanket I told her she’d just got to let me test it for her! I tested Gerald (Gracie rocks some fabulous spiral hair!)

I seriously love how he came out and so does my little one (who claimed it on day one by saying ‘Are those giraffe legs for me?’).

If you’ve not checked out Knotted Notions then you really need to get yourself over there, amongst her other designs, she has some brilliant dolls to choice from; peacocks, trolls, mermaids, angels and fairies to name a few.
