Audrey Hepburn doll from Carol Meldrum's

Carol Meldrum's book Knitted Icons came out recently. It features ten-inch-tall knit versions of various celebrities, ranging from Chairman Mao to Gandhi, Queen Elizabeth II to Madonna. At this writing, it's the featured book at Urban Outfitters' online shop, and as such, they have a free pattern from the book for you to download.

You can make this adorable Audrey Hepburn doll, which depicts the beloved actress as Holly Golightly in her iconic Breakfast at Tiffany's gown and updo. (Sadly, Holly's eyelash-embellished sleep mask is not part of the outfit.) It's done in four different Rowan yarns, and even has a tiny tiara, necklace, and cigarette holder.

It would make a wonderful holiday gift for your most stylish friend, albeit a kitschy one. Here's a direct link to the zipped PDF file: Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly.

    I *just* received my copy of this book yesterday - and my daughter and I couldn't stop looking through it - and we definitely can't wait to get started on one of these dolls - she wants the Che Guerrera (although neither one of us knew who it was...he looks kinda like Captain Jack Sparrow)...and I am going for the Elvis - TOO cute! I am SO glad we bought this book - the directions are extremely detailed and we are sure we will promptly be churning out our own versions..... Maroon 5 dolls anyone?
