  2. That is awesome! I love NCIS and I think Abby is soo cool. :)

    (Pauley Perrett (the actress) does a great job at making Abby such a real character.)

    Great job!

  13. I love the pattern and as soon as I finish Ravelympics I'm going to start on it. Just one question. Are the crochet instructions UK or US? I know there is a difference.

    Thank you for publishing this pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  14. All my patterns are in US instructions as i find they make more sense. Good luck with the Ravelympics.

  19. I Love your pattern. Thank you so much for sharing. I am a new at crocheting and I was wondering if you had more tips on doing the hair part. Thanks again

    ReplyDelete
  20. I Was wondering on the body after the baack loops pnly part for the next rounds do you keep working in back loops or do you work in both loops? Thanks for the pattern

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi, you'll go back to working in both loops after that round,
    as for the hair, I sewed around the hair line then attached the hair to those stitches with the crochet hook, I hope that helps

  30. could you make me one How much would you charge? contact me at angelhotrod45@aol.com Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love your Abby! Did you think of making one and sending it to Pauley Perrete for her to have. Maybe someone else has already done this with a pattern they invented, but non could be any cuter or more accurate than yours. I think you should send one to NCIS.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is awesome! I also love your blog title! A future aspiration to be a crochet ninja hahaha!

  35. The doll is fantastic - as is her inventor/crafter! Well done! Thank you for the pattern. My granddaughter will love this, even if she's too young to join her Gramma watching her favourite show!
