Basic Crochet Doll Pattern Crochet Doll Pattern:


To crochet your doll you will need.
Selection of aluminum Hooks ranging in several sizes. 
Smaller sizes for the body parts, (3.5mm or a 4.00mm) 
and a larger hook (4.00mm or 4.500mm) can be used for the clothing.   

I prefer the steel hooks. I get a selection of sizes for making the right tight
 crocheted material 
needed for making body parts.
The cream color yarn is perfect for body parts. 
I find a nice Aran weight Cream yarn Perfect for 
creating The skin parts of your Doll. 

The light Blue Shown is not only A popular color Just now to Create an 'Elsa" from 
Frozen-inspired amigurumi doll. 
But I love the soft sheen and feel of this yarn.  
Remember to buy your hair color too

Hair color is usually beige or brown or whatever color you would like the 
doll's hair to be.

Make sure you order the correct size of Eyes needed, I always use the safety eyes. 

To start 
Magic circle and work stitches into it
(OR Chain 2, work number of single crochets into the 1st chain. (creates a circle)

RND 12: you will notice there are not enough stitches to completely finish the following 
rounds.

You should be competent in single crochet, increasing and decreasing, 
and be able to read Amigurumi style patterns

NOTE: If you would like to make your doll really tight material work YARN UNDER 
instead of yarn over,
it minimizes the gaps created by a normal single crochet stitch, 

I did this to stop a ridge from being created down the face of the doll usually made 
when you 2sctog 
in the same place in continuing rounds) just keep working as specified 

The yarn I used was Aran Weight ((I also like to use Lily and Cream Cotton)
Hook – 4.00mm 
Additional Supplies – Saftey Eyes or Black yarn to make eyes, 
25 grms Yarn for Hair Color, stitch marker

Abbreviations: Pattern written in US Crochet Terms
ch = chain, st(s) = stitch (es), sc= Singe crochet

NOTE: for this row and the next following decrease rows
