Item details

A Pippi Longstocking doll knitting pattern for an intermediate knitter.

I can think of no sweeter gift for a special child, or child-at-heart than a soft toy you knit yourself. For that matter, I can think of no sweeter gift to yourself than the pleasure of knitting a toy.

If you, or a friend are a fan of the spunky, strong and loving Pippi Longstocking, than this is a perfect pattern for you. Use yarn and needles you already have in your stash to knit your own storybook friend.

The Pippi Longstocking Pattern was inspired by the innocence and joy of childhood imagination and creativity. The shape and details of the finished doll are like a child's sweet drawing come off the page into three dimensions.


The pattern is 7 pages long, written in English, and illustrated with photos in-progress and of the finished doll,so it’s easy to follow.

~Four 3.25mm (US size 3) double pointed knitting needles, or size needed for gauge
~Four 5mm (US size 8) double pointed knitting needles, or size needed for gauge
~Darning needle
~Embroidery needle
~50m (55 yds) skin-tone worsted weight yarn.
~10-50m (11-55 yds) each of worsted weight yarn in your chosen colors for hair, socks, dress, and patches*
~Small lengths of brown, red, and yellow embroidery thread

*This is a GREAT pattern for using up scraps in your stash

Doll/Hair: 24 stitches and 30 rows = 10cm/4 inches in stockinette stitch on smaller needles
Dress: 18 stitches and 22 rows = 10cm/4 inches in stockinette stitch on larger needles
Since final size is not important for this project, you can use any needles and scrap yarn that you have, just make sure that the yarn knits up into a tight, firm fabric so that the final toy holds its shape. Often, this means you should pick needles one or two sizes smaller than the recommended size for your yarn. If you choose not to follow the gauge, your doll may be smaller or larger than the size given.

When knit with recommended yarn and gauge, Pippi Longstocking is approx. 22cm/8.5 inches from head to toe.

Pippi is worked in the round, on double pointed needles. Clothing and hair are worked both in the round, and flat.

In order to knit this doll you should be able to: cast on, bind off, knit, purl, increase and decrease stitches, work an icord, work a 3-needle bind off.

Furthermore, the pattern includes short rows, and kitchener stitch. Links to illustrated tutorials for both these techniques are included in the pattern.

This pattern is available as an instant PDF download after payment.
