I posted this in another forum, but thought I'd share here. This is a Duduza (Comfort) Doll. Duduza is the Zulu word for comfort and the pattern is designed so you can make them and send them to South Africa. I made this one with light skin because I didn't have enough brown (used stash yarn), but it won't be sent so it doesn't matter. I didn't want to knit flat so I knit this one in the round. It was easy to do.
He's great Jan! I'm working on my 3rd one, but the first two aren't as nice as yours. I can't take a good picture of them either, so I can post it. Maybe the third one I can post. I think everyone should make a comfort doll. They are all the same pattern but you can do so much with the dolls to make them different.
Here they are. The 2 on the ends were knitted flat and the one in middle was knitted in the round. Little lady in pink is wearing a skirt so didn't seam up legs on her. I'm addicted to making these little guys now.
