Knit a Pair of Nurse Mates Dolls To Show Your Love and Support For The World’s Health Care Workers

A message from maker Esther Braithwaite (and fellow Canadian), “Nurse Mates Dolls are knit in one piece from the bottom-up. The doll’s body can be knit flat on straight needles and seamed, or knit in the round on dpns. The optional face mask is knit flat on two needles. Simple sewing techniques are used to define the arms and legs after knitting.”

Plus, the pattern is available in both English and Italian.

    My daughter is an RN in the ER in our local hospital. I am knitting to keep my hands and mind busy at this time of anxiety. I will make these for all of her co workers!
