Sister Margaretta – Free Crochet Pattern

Sister Margaretta – Free Crochet Pattern

My daughter was in the Sound of Music with her high school this year. She was super excited to get the role of Sister Margaretta.

Last year she was the Wicked Witch of the West and I made her a Wicked Witch Doll to match her outfit.

This year I surprised her with a nun to match this role.

This isn’t tested, let me know if you have problems.

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

 

Before starting I recommend you cut a small piece of eyelashes and glue to the back of the safety eyes and set them aside to dry while you work on the head.

Attach to head pursuant to the instructions below.

HEAD

The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you finish the head and stuff her.
