Virkmönster - Milla i Alfons Åberg

Crochet pattern in English and Swedish

Se svensk info längre ner

I just love the books about Alfie Atkins. He is a fictional character created by the swedish author Gunilla Bergstöm. Alfie Atkins have an imaginary friend named Malcolm (Moggie in English TV-version), that only Alfie can see and some real friends such as Milla and Victor (Viktor).

When I saw an Alfie Atkins doll in the shop, I was immediately inspired to create a crochet version of him. I went home and started design my Alfie doll. After finishing him he was soon followed by his imaginary friend Malcolm. I felt happy and satisfied but after a while I noticed that Alfie and Malcolm seemed sad about something. When I asked them what was wrong they told me that they longed for their friend Milla. A few weeks later she was standingnext to a happy Alfie and a happy (but also a little jealous) Malcolm.

Virkmönster - Milla

När jag såg en Alfons Åberg-docka i butiken blev jag genast sugen på att virka en egen variant. Efter att Alfons och Mållgan var färdigvirkade kände jag att det fattades någon, nämligen Milla och några veckor senare stod hon bredvid en glad Alfons.

Virkmönstret "Milla" är mycket detaljerat och består av 9 sidor med instruktioner samt många bilder som visar hur du ska göra.

Milla är ca 35 cm från topp till tå

Du behöver ha grundläggande kunskaper i virkning. De maskor som förekommer i mönstret är
fm: fast maska
lm: luftmaska
sm: smygmaska
st: stolpe
hst: halvstolpe
dst: dubbelstolpe

Järbo Soft Cotton

3 mm (eller den storlek på virknål du behöver för att hålla masktätheten 21 m x 24 v = 10 x 10 cm) samt virknål 1,5 mm (till tummen)

Övrigt material:
Filt eller tyg till ögonen
Svart sytråd
Symaskin (för att zick-zacka runt ögonen)
Ev textillim
Stoppnål och synål
Vadd (jag brukar köpa billiga kuddar och använda vadden från dom)

Om du har några frågor är du hjärtligt välkommen att kontakta mig. Jag ska göra mitt bästa för att svara.
