  • OMG I love this so much! I can’t wait to make it!

  • Thank goodness the comments is workin agin

    I love this book and I am learning to crochet SPECIFICALLY to make a doll with lacy bloomers like Samantha’s! (Samantha’s doll, not Samantha herself.)

    • Oh my goodness, your dolly is just gorgeous!! Well done! I can’t wait to get this book. Whenever I get a bit shy about stepping out in my knits or sharing my interests in certain spaces I remind myself how important representation is… how much it matters.

      I’m a plush sized, wild gray curled, Spanish speaking, fun-loving red-blooded American knitter and crocheter, hey now!

      • Hi Olga!

        • Hey there Margaret!

  • This is a great idea. I am putting this book on my list. And would love to see a full picture of your completed doll when she’s totally finished!

  • This is so sweet – I love the variety of the dolls and their clothes. Also really happy to discover Samantha’s blog. What a beautiful space!

  • Phew, it makes my eyelid twitch when the comments aren’t working!
    I really need to up my crochet chops, these are so cute! I love the variety of clothes and hairstyles.

  • I love this! I felt my girlish heart stir at the prospect of dressing those dolls in all the outfits and I’m 72.

  • Love this. Representation is so important. Might have to get this and try a doll. Never crocheted a doll before

  • Love this book idea! I too have trouble even thinking about following a crochet pattern. I love each section being broken down in little, doable parts. And I have a couple friends who will have to be getting these dolls, just because!

  • This is wonderful! Yolonda Jordan brings us a great, and highly creative book, whose time is long overdue. The dolls are absolutely lovely. The clothes are very pretty and sophisticated. Such attention to detail throughout the book! Looking forward to soon seeing more of Ms. Jordan’s creations.

  • What a beautiful book! I am looking at the fashionable outfits on the cover and at my very adult age, these still make me excited to play dress up!

  • This article made me smile so much. As a white woman I am thrilled to see that diversity is getting its day finally in the crocheted doll world. Why did it take so long?

  • Glad the comments are working. Thanks so much for bringing this book to my attention, such adorable patterns!

  • Love the outfits on the cover! This is wonderful. Now I need to learn to crochet!

  • Was so glad to see this book on here yesterday. I preordered when GG showed it on Instagram and it’s coming in Tuesday. I plan to make one for an almost 6 year old, but also felt a need to do my small part to celebrate and speed up the inclusiveness of the fiber community

  • Your Doll came out soo cute! Thank you for shining light on my friend! So deserving

  • I am asking my local public library to buy a copy and PUT ON DISPLAY. Love it.

    • I’m starting a crochet class in a few weeks and a pretty brown doll is now my goal project!!

    • YES! Me too!!!

  • Absolutely love this!

  • So cool to see this, especially as Cabbage Patch dolls are gone now; they came in black and brown. Wonder if my CP knit & sew patterns will work on this doll, hmmmm. And get one for the library, yes!

  • My god, those dolls are freakin’ ADORABLE. I love small projects because the tiny finished size alone gives me that gooey lovey feeling. What a cool book!

  • Wow, is this the coolest! I’ve never been interested in crochet before, but this tempts me.

  • Looks like a worthy addition to the bookshelf! Thank you for letting us know about it.

  • Morrow

  • I would like to buy your book,so i can make dolls for my grand children. Please let me know the information and how much

  • Thank you – ordered immediately! (welcome back comments!)

  • These dolls are gorgeous. I am not a crocheter but I am telling friends who are. Many of my friends make dolls to send out in Christmas gift boxes so I am hoping some of these dolls may find their way into these packages for the children.
