This is a little clown doll I finished for my sister in June for her birthday. She is a professional clown so I thought she'd get a kick out it it. The hardest part of this was knitting the "hair" on him. The pattern comes from a book called "Knitted Toys" by Jean Greenhowe, Page 29, called Cuddly Clown.

Your clown is lovely. I have most of Jean Greenhowe's books but this pattern is unfamiliar - I must have missed this book. I, too, love knitting Jean Greenhowe patterns. I've knit several of her patterns includingThe Tooth Fairy from Storybook Dolls, Winifred's Wool Shop from Little Dumpling Dolls - Part One The Village Ladies, Miss Sophie from Jemima-Jane and Friends, Bertie Bloomer and Sidney Slapstick from Knitted Clowns and Mr. and Mrs. Claus from Christmas Special. Her patterns are so easy to follow. The only problem I have is finding yarn in her colourways. I usually mix Astra with any double knitting yarn I can find in the right colour. Needless to say, most of my toys are plus size.

Keep up the good work.
