I created these knitted worry dolls for a friend’s children using their favourite colors. Traditionally the child tells the doll any worries they may have before they go to sleep. The doll is then placed under the pillow and takes the worries away during the night, allowing a peaceful night’s rest. Small rituals like this could help a child let go of unproductive or obsessive thinking. The adult equivalent might be to visualize all one’s worries returning to a pigeon hole which is then closed for the night.
