🧶 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 used lightweight yarn (4-ply 100% cotton) and a 1.75mm crochet hook to create the doll pictured.
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. The size of your doll will differ based on yarn weight used.
IMPORTANT: If giving the finished doll to a child, please take additional safety precautions (such as embroidering eyes instead of using safety eyes, not using wires internally and ensuring all sewn or decorative parts are extremely secure).
– Grey (approx 30g / 66 m / 72 y)
– Pink (approx 19g / 67m / 73y)
– Cream (approx 5g / 18m / 19y)
