Jemima Jane and Friends

  • This booklet introduces a group of irresistible characters Jemima Janes friends and teddy bears.Jemima-Jane is dressed in the 19th century ‘rag doll’ tradition, with a variety of clothes and hair accessories
  • Here is a trio of teddies designed to look exactly like those treasured old bears from long ago.Bearysmall is only 5cm (2in) high - the cutest little bear you will ever knit! He fits into the palm of a small hand or a tiny pocket and is sure to bring out the ‘aah’ reaction in people - and maybe a tear to the eye.The middle-sized bear Babette, is delightfully fashionable in her chic wide-brimmed hat, trimmed with knitted feathers and pink roses
  • It might even end up with a demonstration! When you look at Miss Amelia’s skirt you may wonder how you are going to manage to space out the rosebuds evenly
  • These dolls are just 17cm (6.75") in height.And last but not least, there are the miniature teddies, carefully designed to look just like the old bears from long ago
  • These delightful 29cm (11.5") fashion dolls are charmingly dressed in Victorian style underwear, day and evening wear.Topsy-turvy novelty dolls were very popular in the Victorian era and three very sweet miniature versions are featured
  • The answer is that Jean has marked the positions with stitches as the skirt piece is knitted, so you can’t possibly go wrong.The Tiny Topsy-Turvy Dolls are three miniature dolls just 17cm (6¾in) in height, requiring only small oddments of yarn
  • She measures a splendid 51cm (20in) in height.Jemima-Jane is an adorable dressing up doll in the true 'rag doll' tradition
  • Can’t you just see her nestled into a pillow on the bed or sitting comfortably in an old armchair.Miss Amelia, Christabel and Sophie continue the nostalgic theme
  • Little girls just adore the topsys - what a lovely surprise to find that there are two dolls in one and each skirt can be reversed in a jiffy, to reveal the ‘hidden’ doll
  • He wears a jaunty scarf monogrammed with the initial H
  • We are amused to think that older knitters are going to have fun explaining what curling rags are to today’s young ladies
  • The theme for the Topsys is flowers and plants
  • Charmingly presented as fashion dolls, they are dressed in Victorian-style underwear, day wear and evening wear and all have different hair styles
  • Babette with her gorgeous hat and feather boa is 9cm (3.5") and Hartley is the largest teddy at 11cm (4.5")
  • All measurements for the bears are in the seated position.The illusion works beautifully when combined with the six removable items which include two hair accessories
  • To complete the ensemble she wears a pale pink feather boa
  • Jean called him Hartley because the name conjures up a picture of a steady, reliable fellow and we think the name suits him perfectly.
  • She is a splendid 51cm (20") in height and comes complete with removable mob cap, two skirts, a popover apron and hair accessories.Missus Amelia, Christabel and Sophie continue the nostalgic theme
  • Miss Amelia's coiffure is particularly enchanting with her ‘rag curlers’ and top knot pony tail
  • In the illustrations you will see that Holly reverses to Ivy, Buttercup to Daisy and Pansy to Rose
  • We’ll keep you guessing as to how you can create the feathery effect on the boa
  • Each one measures 29cm (11½in) and like Jemima-Jane they also have jointed legs
  • Representing flowers and plant, Holly reverses to Ivy, Buttercup to Daisy and Pansy to Rose
  • These dolls can be displayed beautifully because they stand up by themselves on the two double-hemmed skirts.A hug of miniature Teddy Bears features Hartley, Babette and Bearysmall
  • Babette measures 9cm (3½in) high.Hartley is the largest of the three at 11cm (4¼in) in height
  • Bearysmall is the tiniest, measuring an appealing 5cm (1")
  • In the Jemima Jane and Friends Pattern Booklet, Jean Greenhowe has produced a unique and fascinating new craft which transforms garter stitch strips into exciting creations
  • Jemima-Jane's legs are jointed at the top so she can sit down perfectly
