Digger Dude Troll Doll

Meet Digger Dude! Digger was emailed to me from Terry in the United States who made him from My Shiela the Aussie Troll Doll pattern in a previous post.

Doesnt Digger look great?

Here are Terrys instructions for the clothes. I havent tested these and they are in American Terminology only so some of it doesnt make sence to me (lol).

Pants: make a chain long enough to fit waist, join. Dc every 4 chain and Triple c every 5th around.
Next row dc even join
Fold in 1/2 dc around join end
Join yarn and then dc around for the other leg
Ch for belt long enough to tie

Vest: chain to fit waist dc in each c turn
row 2 dc turn c 2
row 3 dc turn c 2
fold in 1/2 then 1/2 again
dc on 1/4 dc 2dc each row for 3 rows
repeat on the other side
dc across the remainder dc for back
stitch shoulders

Hair: fold yarn in half and hook through the top or the head trim and the vary carefully comb one piece of yarn at a time

Thanks Terry it gave me a buzz seeing how he turned out. I am sure your grandson will enjoy Digger!
