Reddie is approximately 6cm (2.36”) tall; and wolfie at 7cm (2.95cm). To achieve a larger doll, you may choose to use 8 ply yarn, all my patterns are suitable to switch between 4 and 8 ply yarn.
The moral of the fairytale is widely known to teach children not to wander off the path. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Red_Riding_Hood
This is an ideal teaching material for kids, since there are no beads (apart from the optional choker that Wolfie wears) or detachable parts used in this set of dolls, they are pretty safe for young children.
