Free Knitting Machine Alien Doll Tutorial
When I made this little baby alien doll inspired by The Child I wanted to share the pattern but wasn’t sure the best way in writing to describe how I made it so I decided to record the steps and add to my YouTube Channel. So that you can make your own I am adding the row counts and other details needed.
Materials for Completion:
22 Pin Knitting Machine – I have the Addi Express Professional
Worsted Weight Yarn: I found Red Heart had the best color options for this doll
- Suggested yarns
- Red Heart – Oatmeal
- Red Heart – Frosty Green
Beads or Buttons for Eyes
Tension: Tight. I use my Savlabot Tension Fork
Size: Approximately 7” depending on how much you stuff it.
Gauge: Not terribly important for this pattern
Using the following row counts cast on and crank out your tubes. You will need waste yarn only for the ears tubes.
1 Body Tube (green) 80 rows – this tube will be double thick (folded inside of itself)
1 Sweater Tube (oatmeal) 60 rows – this tube will be a single layer.
2 Arm Tubes (green and oatmeal) 8 rows in oatmeal, 4 rows in green – this tube is 2 colors
2 Ear Tubes Use Waste Yarn (green) 13 rows – you will need waste yarn when casting off for this tube and long yarn tails as you will use them to finish the ears.
