Hi all
I am looking for a knitted or crochet free Golliwog pattern.
If anyone has got one they can share with with me, I would really appreciate it.
Or a sight I can download from.
About 10"-12" tall.
Have done a search on net but no luck yet

Hmm ... I'd never heard of a Golliwogg, so I googled it. This is what I found on the subject: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golliwogg

If I found a pattern, I would neither pass it on nor make it. I'd sooner knit a gun!

Just my opinion.

I use to have a golliwog when I was a kid. Can't believe it would ever get to the point where you couldn't buy/knit one.

He was gorgeous and I have still seen them around occasionally.

There are 6 on this site cost is AU$3

You can make a golly and children love then also sell them on craft stalls, you must not now call it a gollyw--.and rightly so!! I have 2 lovely patterns for golly's I would willingly share.

I guess we Aussies wouldn't know much about that which is probably why it doesn't mean the same thing to us. Mind you the aborigine doesn't like being called that anymore - they are indigenous.

I've seen plenty of golliwog patterns on the web; Aren't they adorable, Tiger?!

Yes, both in knit and crochet, too. I don't think I've seen one come in here on forum, so just pop a surf for:

knit golliwog free pattern
crochet golliwog free pattern

I'm sure you'll find patterns and perhaps not free, but to look over the pattern designs is fun, too!

Good luck!

the gollies used to be on Robinsons jams (think they were the ones) and in uk if you collected tokens from the labels you got a nice gollie broche l have about 4 some where ,and the toys used to be very popular

hi Kentish Lady
Being an Aussie we did not have the Robinson jams here I do not think.
I know of them from English magazine adverts etc. They were really cute.
I was unaware what the tokens were for though.
