I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Ragdoll toys are where it’s at

So, most of us likely had favorite ragdoll toys we played with as children. Indeed, they are treasured memories of a simpler past and more robust times. Therefore, why not bring some of that serene calm and certainty from our own childhood to the lives of our own children and grandkids. Of course, we can make them as modern and up to date as we care to. Nevertheless, they will still have that timeless certainty that will be instantly recognizable. Moreover, if you think that these may be beyond your skill level, think again. Overall these are some of the simplest and most fun patterns for toys.

First, this wonderful member of our collection of  ragdoll toys is a masterpiece of color coding. Indeed, the zebra stripes are an absolute hoot and the cute, spiky mane is just a gorgeous crowning touch. These pattern will be free to the end of 2022.

    I so not like free patterns that I cannot cut and paste so I can work on the project in a more comfortable sitting place than in front of my computer.

      Ms.Peggy Lopez. I don’t know if you have seen or heard of the Snipping Tool on your computer. I’m not sure where it is my son got mine for me. I use it all the time. I guess you could go to the find program file in your computer search and type “Snipping Tool” I hope this helps.

    2. I agree! The Melly Telly Ragdoll has a couple you can grab right now FREE and also download “print friendly” to your computer and save it in pdf and then open it up when YOU want and WHERE you want!

      I personally think when we are not allowed to copy-paste then we need to move on and find a different person because there is always many more of the same things just a tiny bit different and that person will allow is to get the pattern so we can make it while comfortable.

      Blessings <3
