Little Clown

I have finished my first knitted doll for the New Life Foundation.

The pattern is from Jean Greenhowe's Dolly Mixtures
Dolly Mixtures

In the book he is called Bertie I however want to give him a different name but cannot think of one. So maybe if you can think of one you could leave a comment and I could pick one. My husband thinks he looks more like Pinocchio or a little Tramp.
He was fun to make and a great way to use up more stash, all of Jean Greenhowe patterns are easy to follow and the instructions clear which is always a bonus for me. Trust me I can get lost with some instructions so I always pick easy patterns.
So this is the first item I have made for New Life I hope they will like him.


  1. He's lovely Paula and is sure to be loved, you can see so much work has gone into the making of him. he looks like a Harry to me :)

  2. Thank you. I asked on my knitting forum as well for a name for my little clown and Patches was the winner so Patches he is.

  3. This clown is so cute! I love the hat and the patches on the pants!
