Amy the Amigurumi Doll - A Free Crochet-A-Long



I'm super excited you are joining me on my first CAL (Crochet-A-Long)! This sweet doll was inspired by a bunny on my daughter's shirt. 



I loved the skirt shirt combo and every time I saw it I wanted to try and crochet it as a doll! My daughter was thrilled their outfits matched!



She measures about 14 inches from head to toe and is a great pattern for beginners! The legs and body are made as one piece making the pattern work up quickly!


Be sure to join the Grace and Yarn Crochet Group on Facebook so you can share your WIP as you go and ask any questions you have along the way!

I have used plastic safety eyes in this pattern but if you would prefer an alternative I have a tutorial for crochet eyes here!

The pattern will be worked in the round and I highly recommend using stitch markers if you don't already. This is one material you don't necessarily have to purchase. A piece of scrap yarn, safety pin or bobby pin will work just fine!

PIN it here to save to your favorite board! I'll be updating each part below as they become available!

  3. I need help. I've read this 3 times. I still haven't found a pattern to crochet the doll. Foot to head or head to food. How do I find the pattern. She's beautiful & I'd love making her for my great grand daughters. Appreciate any help.
