Ballerina & Cossack Knitted Dancing Dolls

Ballerina and Cossack Knitted Dancing Dolls

Combining the charm of traditional knitted dollies with the fun of finger puppetry, our range of Knitted Dancing Dolls are the answer for anyone who's ever wondered what it might be like if a favourite doll could suddenly come to life.

Inspired by two very different but equally famous styles of dance in Russia, these patterns contain all the detail you'll need to make your own Ballerina and Cossack Knitted Dancing Dolls. The costumes for both dolls have been lovingly designed to include all of the instantly recognisable details we know and love about these dramatic dances, ranging from the Ballerina's multi-layered tutu, ballet slippers and plaited hairstyle to the Cossack's baggy trousers and big hat - it's all in there!

Unlike most knitted puppets, the finger puppet element of the Knitted Dancing Dolls is almost impossible to detect when not in use, making them ideal for display as well as play. The secret is in their hollow legs - when it's time to dance, all you have to do is slide them onto two fingers and you're ready to go!

Both dolls are knitted using 100% acrylic yarn and measure approximately 21cm in height (excluding hats). The patterns are best suited to knitters with intermediate to advanced knitting skills.

If you always wanted to have a go at ballet when you were younger but never got around to it - well now's your chance to try your hand at it. Quite literally.
