By now it’s a pretty well-established fact that I love knitting and keep trying to force it on everyone else. Consider it one of my charms. 🙂 While going through my morning Audrey news search, I found a new knitting book called Knitted Icons: 25 Celebrity Doll Patterns, a crazy cool book that has patterns to make 25 of the most recognizable celebrities, all in vaguely voodoo doll-type form! You can see Audrey Hepburn as the instantly recognizable Holly Golightly to the left for proof that this is, in fact, a really cool book.
What’s more is that this book is currently featured online at Urban Outfitters (where they are also selling Treasures and the new Audrey Hepburn: A Life In Pictures), so they’re giving away a free pattern from the book as a bonus. The free pattern in question? Why, the Holly Golightly one, of course!* So if she’s the only doll you were interested in making, you lucked out. Now I just have to figure out how to knit with double-pointed needles. Those things are the bane of my existence.
