Now lets get to the pattern shall we?

You will need:

Approx. 65gr of skin colored cotton yarn. I used this
Cotton yarn for the dress hair and shoes in white, pink and brown

Hook:

2,0mm or 2,5mm for the body depending on how firm you crochet
2,5mm for shoes
3,0mm for dress

Other materials:
Safety eyes
toy stuffing
Embroidery thread
stitch markers
Needle
3 small buttons
tinting of your choice

Gauge:
Doll – 1,4cmx1,4cm
Hair – 1,5cmx1,5cm
Dress – 1,7cmx1,7cm
Shoes – 1,5cmx1,5cm

Terms:
Sc – single crochet
Inc – 2 sc in same st
Dc inc – 2 dc in same st
Dec – 2 sc made into one
Mr – Magic ring
Ch – chain
Sl st – slip stitch
Dc – double crochet
st/sts – stitch/stitches
dc cluster – 5dc in same st

Pattern info:
The hands, feet/legs and body are made separately, the hands and feet/legs are then sewed onto the body.

All stitched are separated by , inc, 1sc, means you make 1 inc in the first st then move to next st and make 1 sc.

When a series of stitches is repeated these are placed within * – * the number this sequence is crochet is written after, for example x 6.

This is a printer friendly pattern. With each row written out to easily print out and cross off each row when done.

The number of stitches you should have after each row/round is completed is written at the end of each line within ( * ) Unless a slst or a turn is written you work in the round

Place a stitch marker in the first st of each round to make sure you always know where your last st is.

The pattern requires a smaller hook then your yarn suggests, to make sure there aren’t any holes to see the stuffing trough. Read the whole pattern before you start.

Stuff the rest of the head and sew the rest of the hole shut. Fasten yarn and cut loose ends.

Embroider eyelashes and eyebrows, tint the cheeks. Sew the arms and legs in place.

Tip, place the arms centered from the side so both front and back of doll is equal, then you can emborider 2 faces and the doll can have 2 moods. The legs are sewn in place using the space that is made from the starting chain of the body.

Tip, when making the hair, test it on the dolls head to make sure you can take the hair of and put it back on, it shouldn’t fall of and I shouldn’t be to hard to put on, if that is the case adjust by changing hook size

  1. You say on the arms and legs not to fasten off! What does this mean? How do you fasten without fastening off please explain, the pattern does not make sense

    1. Hi, the reason you do not fasten of the arms and legs is beacuse you use the tail of the yarn to sew them in place, you can secure your stitches but leave a long tail to sew them pieces in place:) Hope this helps
