Pansy is named after a winter flower which is grown in Britain. The flowers originated from France, as violas. The name pansy is thought to come from the French word 'pensee - thought'. It was imported in the 15th century to Britain as a viola. Lady Mary Elizabeth Bennett (1785–1861) from Surrey, Britain, was an avid collector of violas and through cross breeding introduced pansies in 1812.
|Pansy A Winter Doll Knitting Pattern|
I have used colours associated with winter: blues, light pinks & white. I have used Sirdar Snuggly DK for the turquoise & light blue and Sirdar Snuggly Pearls DK for the pink, as this adds a little sparkle!
Pansy has stripy tights with a stripy top to match. Her skirt is flared and her belt has a bow attached. Ice Blue 4mm beads have been knitted into her hat and scarf, which are detachable.
Pansy wears her hair in bunches.
I have used Sirdar Snuggly DK, Sirdar Snuggly Pearls DK & Hayfield Bonus DK.
