MEASUREMENTS

GAUGE

Gauge for the doll: 7 single crochet stitches x 8 rounds to 1 inch (hook size US 1 or 2,5 mm).

Abbreviations used:

Pattern is written using standard US crocheting terms:

Ch = chain stitch

N Ch = make N chain stitches

[…] x N = repeat instructions described in the brackets N times in that round

dec = SC decrease (SC 2 stitches together) = invisible decrease = (insert hook into FLO of

the indicated st and into FLO of next st, YO, pull through both front loops, YO, pull

through both loops on hook = regular decrease = (crochet next 2 stitches

together into 1 stitch by pulling up a loop through both stitches and crocheting the loops

together)

fasten off = Cut the yarn, leaving about 10 cm (4 inch) tail, and pull this tail all the way through

the top of the last stitch made.

inc = SC increase (2 SC into the same stitch)

N SC / N slst = crochet one SC / slst in the following N stitches

( N sts ) = number of stitches after nishing this round / row

Black embroidery thread (or yarn) for embroidery of the mouth, nostrils and eyelashes

Using the stated hook size and yarn, your doll will turn out about 29 cm (11,4 inch) from the feet to

the top of the spikes.

beg Ch = beginning chain

BL(O) = back loop (only) = crochet through back loops only. If BL(O) is marked after the

round number, crochet the entire round through BL(O). If BL(O) is in the middle of a sentence

between commas, crochet only the indicated stitches BL(O)

Rd(s) = round(s)

hdc = half double crochet = (YO, insert hook in indicated stitch, pull through loop, YO, pull

through all 3 loops on hook)

DC = double crochet = (YO, insert hook in indicated st, YO, pool through loop, (YO, pool

through 2 loops) twice.

Dc inc = double crochet increase (2 DC into the same stitch)

Special crochet techniques

Crochet in spiral rounds

When you crochet in spiral rounds you do not turn or join the round. Use a stitch marker to mark

the beginning of each round. Move the marker up each time you start a new round.

Alternative for stitch marker: you can use different colored yarn for stitch markers too, just place it

into the rst stitch of every row/round as you go.

Crochet in rows

When you crochet rows you need to turn your work, make 1 turning chain, if the next row starts

with a SC. If the turning chain(s) count as stitch or not is indicated in the row.

Closing up a piece of circular crochet

When you nish working a piece of circular crochet that forms a 3-D-object, you must close the

small hole that remains. This is normally completed after stuf ng the piece.

1) Cut the yarn, leaving a long yarn end. Draw the end through the nal loop on the hook and

thread it onto a tapestry needle.

2) Insert the needle under the front loop of each stitch around the opening, so the needle goes

from the center of the hole to the outside.

3) Pull the tail tight to close the hole. To weave in the loose end insert the needle through the

middle of the ring you’ve created and push it through the crochet piece. Cut off the end.

SOME USEFUL HINTS

1. Stitch count is given in each row/round so you can check your work.

2. Crochet tightly so you get a clean and rm surface and no lling can shine through. If you

crochet very loose, choose a smaller hook size.

3. You can choose a different kind of yarn with a different gauge. Adjust hook size

accordingly. The measurements of the doll will also change.

4. Fill the doll with ber ll as you go. The rmer as you stuff, the rmer your doll will turn out.

5. And don’t forget have fun!))

YO = yarn over

rem = remaining

SC = single crochet = (Insert hook in indicated stitch, YO, pull through loop, YO and pull through

both loops on hook)

slst = slip stitch = ( insert hook in indicated stitch, YO and pull through both loops on hook)

st(s) = stitch(es)

Please, read the whole pattern through properly, so you have a good overview

Directions

Legs (make 2 of them)

Rd 1 7 SC in a magic ring (7 sts)

Rds 2 – 3 SC in each st around (7 sts)

Rd 4 inc, 5 SC, inc (9 sts)

Rd 5 SC in each st around (9 sts)

Rd 6 inc, 7, inc (11 sts)

Rd 7 SC in each st around (11 sts)

Rd 8 inc, 9 SC, inc (13 sts)

Rd 9 SC in each st around (13 sts)

First leg: fasten off (do not leave a long tail).

Now crochet the second leg in the same way. Repeat rounds1– 9, but do not cut the yarn, make

1 slst in the 1 stitch of Rd 9, crochet 8 Ch and continue with body. st

Body

Hook US 1 ½ or 2,5 mm, light green color yarn

Work the legs in spiral rounds

Hook US 1 ½ or 2,5 mm, light green color yarn

Work the body in spiral rounds

Connect both legs with 1 slst in the first stitch of Rd 9. It is important that the tips of feet look to

each other. + Crochet now 12 SC around the first leg + 8 SC in the chains + 13 SC around the

second leg + 8 SC in the chains = 42 SC = Rd 1 of the body. This will be the new begin of the

round.

Rd 2 SC in each st around (42 sts)

Staff the legs with ber ll tight. Use the scissors or something pointy to insert the stuf ng.

Rd 3 [ 6 SC , inc ] x 6 (48 sts)

Rds 4 – 10 SC in each st around (48 sts)

TIP! Its easier to ll in some stuf ng material while you are working out the body decreases – when it’s

nished it is harder to stuff the body tight, because of the small opening at the end.

Rd 11 [ 1 dec , 6 SC ] x 6 (42 sts)

Assembling all the parts

Step 1: MUZZLE AND HEAD

Fasten the muzzle with some sewing pins first to find the right placement. Sew the muzzle onto the head.

Use tapestry needle and a yarn tail. (photos 41 42)

Step 2: EMBRODER NOSTRILS, MOUTH AND EYELASHES

Use sewing pins to mark the location of the nostrils and the mouth (photo 43). Embroider the nostrils as two

loops loosely and the mouth as one loop loosely. I used a tapestry needle and black yarn.

Tip: sew the nostrils and mouth on with regular sewing thread, when the doll is made for a baby

Use sewing pins to mark the location of the eyelashes (photos 44 – 46). Thread the embroidery floss to a

needle and embroider the eyelashes. I used a tapestry needle and black and milk yarn threads.

Embroider the muzzle along the edge. I used a tapestry needle and yellow yarn thread (I split it and

remove one thread to get more slim thread). (photos 47 – 48)

A great video how to do an almost invisible join in amigurumi, when you join an open ended piece to a closed piece you can nd here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwnVv0BJOlE

Step 3: HEAD AND BODY

Make a neat finish of the body (same way as of the muzzle).

Make sure the body is stuffed firmly, especially the neck (it’s even better to overstuff the neck for extra

strength) and sew the head onto the body.

Tip: Use sewing pins to attach the head to the body before sewing to get a symmetrical result. Add a bit more staffing before closing the seam. (photos 49, 50)

Step 4: ARMS AND BODY

Fasten the arms with sewing pins between rounds 19 and 22 of the body in a slightly diagonal position. (photos 51, 52) Sew the arms onto the body. Use a tapestry needle and the yarn tails.

Step 5: PATCH AND BODY

Fasten the patch to the body with some sewing pins first to find the right placement. Sew the patch onto the

body. Use a tapestry needle and the yarn tail. Thread the black embroidery floss (or black yarn) to a

tapestry needle and embroider 4 of decoration seams. Use photos 53 and 54 as a guide.

Step 6: EMBRODER NAVEL

Embroider a navel as X, using a tapestry needle and black (or pink) yarn thread. (photo 53 – 54)

Step 7: SPIKES, EARS AND HEAD

Fasten the spikes the spikes and ears with some sewing pins first to find the right placement. (photos 55, 56) (plase the ears between Rd 18 and Rd 22 of the head) Sew the spikes and ears onto the head. Use tapestry needle and yarn tails.

Step 8: TAIL AND BODY

Fasten the tail to the bottom of the back with some sewing pins first to find the right placement between

Rd 2 and Rd 8 of the body (photo 54) Sew the tail onto the body. Use tapestry needle and the yarn tail.

Step 9: WINGS AND BODY

Fasten the wings with some sewing pins first to find the right placement (photo 61) Sew the wings onto the

back. Use tapestry needle and yarn tails.
