Here is another pattern that is just to fun, in that vintage sort of way, not to share. This one comes to us (public domain) from the October 1966 issue of The Workbasket. They call this a Rock'n Roll couple.
And, what is almost as much fun as the dolls themselves, as the 1966 lead in description, which I quote: "Lively
rock and roll dolls add "swing"
to a teenager's
room decor. They
also happily return a small child's
hugs and go with him on
all his adventure trips. Sure to be a popular bazaar item,
dancing dolls would make delightful birthday and special
occasion gifts. Decorations for
many different party themes could be planned around the rock and
roll pair. Dancing in the center of a buffet table, they set a
for almost any kind of party".
Now, do you really think these would have been a theme for a teenager in the 1960s? Perhaps ... what do I know.
Anyway, it is a good base pattern for a yarn doll calling for, of course, yarn, styrofoam balls some cardboard and felt scraps. It could certainly be a fun way to spend an afternoon. And, who knows, perhaps your teenager just might help (NOT!).
