Project #001: The Alan Dart Pirate


As mentioned in my first post, this was my first completed knitting project in over 20 years.

The idea came about when I asked Daddy Rivett what he would like for his Birthday. “Surprise me.” was the response. So, with that in mind, I thought I would hand knit a doll for him, after all he did make me the Mickey Mouse mosaic at Christmas.

So here are the final pictures of my first project. The doll took me 4 weekends to complete, the pattern can be purchased from Alan Dart’s website and the wool was purchased online from my Twitter friends at Deramores (links in the side bar). The project is advanced, my experience with knitting was always with intricate novelty projects, as they keep my attention span active.

Although a challenge I loved every minute of it.


Happy Knitting,
