Free Crochet Doll Pattern

I am so excited to make the Amelia doll a FREE pattern! I love making dolls. It is so exciting to make something from yarn that has so much personality and possibility! And the Amelia doll is a great size! She is about 9 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide. Amelia works up fairly quickly so she is a great last minute gift or item for craft fairs. For Amelia, I recommend using size 4 worsted weight yarn in whatever color you prefer. This particular one used Stylecraft’s Special Chunky in Cream. The hair is Lion Brands Silky Twist in chocolate. The dress is Red Heart’s with Love. There are so many different ways to customize this doll! Enjoy making her!

This pattern is worked in continuous rounds.

You will need:

Round 3: SC in first, SC INC in next. Repeat around. (18)
Round 4-18: SC in each stitch around. (18)

Fasten off.
Repeat for the second leg but do not fasten off. Instead, chain 3 and then SC in the next stitch of the other leg. Take care to crochet over the tail left over by fastening off. SC around the entire leg. When you come to the three chains, SC in each chain around the next leg. SC over the chain back to the other leg. In the last SC on the last chain place your stitch marker. (This is round 19.)

Now you need to attach some hair to that sweet doll so it looks less like an alien! This post shows you how to do so in three different ways!

Now it is time to make the dress!

If you want a different version of the same doll, The Friendly Mae is the sweet baby version with short hair and a sweet dress with puffed sleeves.
