Little Amigurumi doll pattern.

August 20, 2015

After seeing the pictures of my amigurumi dolls, I got a lot of request from my friends to make one for them. I wanted to make a doll that doesn't consume a lot of time so that i can whip up more dolls and that's how i came up with my very own pattern. These dolls are small and measures 4.5 - 5 inches. Do go ahead and check it out!!




Since i'm kinda new to this pattern writing, if you find any mistakes, do let me  know.

Materials needed :

Acrylic yarn (skin color, white, pink,yellow, brown)
Crochet hook : Suitable size for the yarn (i used 3 mm hook)
Tapestry needle.
Polyfiber fill.
Safety eyes (optional)

Sc- single crochet

dc- double crochet
sl st - slip stitch

This project is worked in continuous rounds. Don't join or turn unless stated otherwise.

  10. Hi, the doll is adorable and I repeated the steps. I am half-way and here is one edit that the pattern needs:

    Legs:
    Change color (white/skin color yarn)
    R5-13: sc around (7) {Instead of R5-9}

    Thank you!

    1. yes, it seemed to me her legs are a bit shorter in my performance that it is on the picture : I was not counting the rows, however... then it needs to be correcet other numbers of rows too, so it's not joining with 10th row but with 14th row and all the following rows should be corrected.

  13. Lovely pattern!
    Quick question though at "R8-9: sc in each st (36)" Do I need to sc 36 twice? once for row 8 and then again for row 9?

  16. This little doll is adorable. I'm a knitter usually and I don't do crochet unless it is something I REALLY love. I've made one of your pandas and several small teddy bears. Do you think it would be possible to design fairy wings for this doll? That would be absolutely amazing!!
    Love your stuff!!!
