Subject: yoyo dolls
I know someone posted about the yoyo dolls on HGTV they are on the site but no instructions. Does anyone have the pattern or can tell me how to do them?

I and my brothers have yo-yo clowns our maternal grandmother made for us many years ago. I had never seen a pattern for them until a few years ago when it appeared in the Michaels Arts and Crafts magazine, Jan/Feb 1997 issue. I still have the magazine and will be glad to share the instructions with those who want them. I just need a way to send them--either e-mail or snail mail. My e-mail is email@example.com

OMG, I believe the featured crafter "Shirley" on the HGTV site was a vendor at a Kris Kringle show I did in South Bend Indiana in Nov. If this is the same lady, you should have seen the exquisite work she did with yo yo people. Some finished yo yo's no larger than 1/8 of an inch were used for the hands. she had yo yo people for every occasion and occupation.
Wishing you sucess with your yo yo venture.

There is this one, too. No instructions, tho.

They are adorable! It looks to me like they are made similar to the doll in the first link given by Kim. Just adjust the size of the yo-yos for arms, legs, etc. Hands look like stuff yo-yos. Don't know what the 'sock' monkey is made but it is so cute! If you crocheted, you could crochet the circles from various colors of yarn & again vary the size.
Any other ideas as to how they are made?
