🧶 About this Pattern

*This amigurumi doll is worked in several pieces, a majority of which are worked in the round.
*This project does not require a particular yarn weight – I have used lightweight yarn (4-ply 100% cotton) and a 1.75mm crochet hook to create the doll pictured in this listing. Please refer to your yarn label to find the appropriate hook size for your chosen yarn – when making amigurumi it is recommended that you use 1 – 2 hook sizes down from the recommended size.
*For this pattern you will need INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED crochet and amigurumi skills and to know how to read written crochet patterns.

*IMPORTANT: If giving the finished doll to a child, please take additional precautions such as embroidering eyes, avoiding small decorative features such as buttons, and ensuring all limbs and features are extra securely attached.


This pattern includes the following crochet techniques and stitches:

Working in the round, magic ring, chain, double crochet (UK), half treble crochet (UK), treble crochet (UK), increase, decrease, invisible decrease (instructions provided), back loops only, front loops only, bobble stitch (instructions provided), colour changes and slip stitch.
