She has this one trick where she sits on the skateboard, rides it a few feet, then flips it out from under her and jumps on to finish the ride. I'm sure there's a name for that move somewhere, but I have no idea what it is. Of course, she does this at a very slow speed, befitting a young lady of a modest age.
She whispers in my ear.... "I can skate better than Mommy. She can't do the tricks I can" .... what a kid!!
So, of course, I had to make her a crocheted skateboarder for Christmas...
This is Noli after she jumps back on her skateboard after doing her trick!
I kept her hair wild and free just like Noli's (mainly because you can't get her to sit still long enough to brush it!) I pulled the yarn for the hair from the middle of the skein so that it would be wavy and curly!
Oh, and did you see her thumbs? Thumbs!! Don't you love it?!
Skateboarder Noli is made from a cute pattern by K and J Dolls on Etsy -- she has the most adorable amigurumi patterns for sale! If you crochet, you should definitely check out her shop. Or even if you don't crochet, the dolls and animals are just so cute to look at!
I just might have to make this one for Noli for Easter! What's really sweet is that she has two outfits! Noli will love that!
