Ahhh Polly, she was super popular as a finished piece so I can imagine you'll love the pattern.
Stitches you'll be working:
Half Double Crochet
Whip Stitching or Slip Stitch
150gm 8ply or Double New Zealand Merino - I've used Orb in Gold
Your pattern will be available for download upon purchase.
Happy to help you along the way and give you expert finishing tips, flick me a message, down in the bottom corner over there, or even better, join the chat over at Ravelry and help others who may have the same questions.
