Crochet amigurumi doll

 

The stitches used in this pattern for the crochet amigurumi doll:

  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain stitch
  • sc – single crochet stitch
  • inc – increase single crochet stitch – make 2sc in 1
  • dec – decrease single crochet stitch – join 2sc in 1

Materials needed for the crochet doll amigurumi:

  • crochet hook (3mm)
  • yarn (appropriate size for the crochet hook)
  • scissors
  • needle
  • stuffing - you can use polyester fiberfill, cluster fiberfill, recycled cotton filling, rice,...
  • safety eyes (2) or buttons (2) or embroidery thread

PATTERN NOTES

  • Amigurumi doll and its parts are worked in continuous rounds without joining each row
  • Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each round
  • Use a stitch marker to mark the hips of the doll because that is where you will be making increases and decreases. To find the position of the hips just flatten the work and mark the edge stitches. It will also show you where to attach the arms
  • Because you get a shift when working in continuous rounds the positioning of the hips and arms is done with stitch markers
  • You can adjust the length of the legs, body and arms
  • You can choose any color you want for the body - skin
  • You can choose any color you want for the hair

PATTERN and order of crocheting the parts for the crochet doll

Start with the arms – make 2:

  • magic ring
  • R1: 6sc – 6st
  • R2: {2sc, inc} x2 – 8st
  • R3-16: 8sc – 8st

Cut yarn, join invisibly.

Pattern for the legs, the body and the head

Stating with the legs where you make 2:

  • magic ring
  • R1: 5sc – 5st
  • R2: 5inc – 10st
  • R3-18: 10sc – 10st
  • R19-20: change color - 10sc – 10st

Cut yarn, join invisibly on one leg only, when doing the second leg you continue with joining the legs and making the hips and the body:

  • R21: sl st, ch2, join L1, 10sc in L1, 2sc in ch2, 10sc in L2, 2sc in ch2 – 24st– put a stich marker on the hips – that is where the increases and decreases will be done
  • R22: {11sc, inc} x2 – 26st – where 11sc on one side is divided into 4sc and 7sc
  • R23: {12sc, inc} x2 – 28st – where 12sc on one side is divided into 5sc and 7sc
  • R24: {13sc, inc} x2 – 30st – where 13sc on one side is divided into 6sc and 7sc
  • R25: 30sc – 30st
  • R26: 30sc BACK LOOP ONLY – 30st – change back to skin color – mark where the side is – you will be doing the decreases according to the marked stitches because of the continuous rounds
  • R27: {13sc, dec} x2 – 28st – where 13sc on one side is divided into 6sc and 7sc
  • R28: {12sc, dec} x2 – 26st – where 12sc on one side is divided into 6sc and 6sc
  • R29: {11sc, inc} x2 – 24st – where 11sc on one side is divided into 6sc and 5sc
  • R30-35: 24sc – 24st
  • R36: attaching the arms – on the sides – mark where the side is – you will do on each half – front and back. This part is a bit tricky but just lay down the doll and mark where the sides are would be my best advice.

8sc, attach arm 7sc, skip 1stitch on body and 1 stitch on arm, 11sc, attach arm 7sc, skip 1stitch on body and 1 stitch on arm, 4sc – 36st

Because the row doesn't start where the armpit is I did 7sc, attached the arm 11sc between the arms, attach the arm, 4sc to come back to the start. I would suggest perhaps looking at a YouTube video on how and where to position arms.

  • R37: {12sc, 3dec} x2 – 30st – where 12sc on one side is divided into 7sc and 5sc – easier to mark where the side is
  • R38: {9sc, 3dec} x2 – 24st – where 9sc on one side is divided into 6sc and 3sc – easier to mark where the side is
  • R39: {6sc, 3dec} x2 – 18st – where 6sc on one side is divided into 6sc and 0sc – easier to mark where the side is
  • R40: {sc, dec} x6 – 12st
  • R41: {sc, dec} x4– 8st
  • R42: 8sc – 8st – neck
  • R43: {sc, inc} x4– 12st – head
  • R44: {sc, inc} x6 – 18st
  • R45: {sc, inc, sc} x6 – 24st
  • R46: {3sc, inc} x6 – 30st
  • R47: {2sc, inc, 2sc} x6 – 36st
  • R48: {5sc, inc} x6 – 42st
  • R49-56: 42sc – 42st – in row 50 or 51 put in the eyes – one row lower make the nose
  • R57: {5sc, dec} x6 – 36st
  • R58: {2sc, dec, 2sc} x6 – 30st
  • R59: {3sc, dec} x6 – 24st
  • R60: {sc, dec, sc} x6 – 18st
  • R61: {sc, dec} x6 – 12st
  • R62: {dec} x4 – 8st

Cut yarn, sew the top.

That is the doll body with all parts done.

Crochet hair - crochet wig for a crochet doll

Again this can be adjusted if you want shorted or loner hair for your doll. Also if you want straight or curly hair.

If you want straight hair just make all single crochet stitches when going back to the base. if you want more curls for a more curly hair make more increases in the base of chains (more two single crochet stitches in one or more three single crochet stitches in one).

If you wish to make the hair longer or shorter make more or less chains for the base of a strand.

Pattern

  • ch25 - BASE
    long stand of hair - make 10:
    • 25ch
    • turn work
    • ch1, in each of the 25 chains you make (3sc), (3sc), (3sc), (3sc), (2sc), (2sc), 19sc
    • join to BASE with a slip stitch
  • short stand of hair - make 5:
    • 10ch
    • turn work
    • ch1, in each of the 10chains you make 10sc
    • join to BASE with a slip stitch
  • long stand of hair - make 10:
    • 25ch
    • turn work
    • ch1, in each of the 25 chains you make (3sc), (3sc), (3sc), (3sc), (2sc), (2sc), 19sc
    •  join to BASE with a slip stitch

Fold in half face side down and sew together the 25ch of the base (12 stitches).

Sew the "wig" onto the head and the crochet amigurumi doll is done.

    I like the pattern but I also think you did wrong with the eyes. But other then that the crochet doll amigurumi looks good. Love the curly doll hair.
