I have used pink Sirdar Snuggly Pearls DK to give a sparkle effect. 3mm pink pearl beads were knitted into the work. However, these do not have to be used.

Betsy comes complete with a beaded tutu skirt, beaded bodice, beaded arm cuffs & a beaded tiara.

Her hair is in a classical bun.

Her tutu is of double thickness with a picot edging which enables the tutu skirt not to flop!

I have always said I would never knit anything to do with work, but after my ballet school's recent show I was inspired! So during my holiday in the Isle of Wight, with my family, Betsy was created.

Betsy is dancing the role of 'The Candyfloss Fairy' from the ballet - 'Candyland' - as invented by my children!

I have used Sirdar Snuggly Pearls DK & Hayfield Bonus DK.

The flower Tulip is grown here in Britain during Spring. It originated from Persia and Turkey but is more commonly thought of as a Dutch flower. Tulip means 'perfect love'.

Tulip colours have different meanings. Red - true love, yellow - hopeless love, orange - warmth & happiness, white - forgiveness, pink - happiness & confidence. Purple is used for royalty. The centre of the tulip is the heart and a striped tulip is said to represent beautiful eyes!

I have used colours associated with spring in my doll design: greens, yellow and pink. My Tulip is pink - she is full of happiness & confidence. The green represents the stalk and leaves and the yellow the sun!

Tulip has a detachable pinafore dress, which has a picot edging collar and hem.

Tulip wears a pink & yellow striped jumper with yellow cuffs.

She has a detachable spring bonnet with a large green bow.

I have used Sirdar Snuggly DK & Hayfield Bonus DK.
