Have you noticed the trend in Big Head Baby Dolls in the online crochet community lately? I must admit, they are super cute and actually pretty functional.
No, I’m not going to carry around a crocheted doll with me everywhere. Cause that’s just not handy. If you work a lot of craft fairs, or if you sell on Etsy or post patterns on Ravelry, however (and you don’t have a baby yourself) these heads are the perfect size to model those adorable hats!
What’s up with the Big Head Baby Dolls (BHBD)?
The pattern was originally written in Russian, then translated into English (by someone other than the original author). Then it was posted on Ravelry, and then Ravelry took it down because it was not an “original pattern”. That’s the way I understand it anyway. I won’t copy the pattern (cause that’s just not cool) and while the original pattern is no longer available, there is a similar doll if you search on Ravelry.
