Plush Baby Princess Crochet Pattern-Squishy

This free baby princess crochet pattern amigurumi pattern makes a squishy plush pal! This works up quickly with plush blanket yarn, a perfect amigurumi for gifts and markets.

Plush Yarn Baby Princess Crochet Pattern

I have fallen in love with plush yarn and the effect it has when using it for amigurumi! I can’t resist making free crochet plushie patterns, as you can see here! The bulkier yarn allows for a good sized project with less stitches, so I feel like I am flying through the creating process. Once you are familiar with this type of yarn, I think that this is a very beginner friendly project. This little crochet doll definitely works up much faster than the traditional amigurumi!

      This squishy Baby Princess amigurumi pattern is made from the bottom to the head. You will intentionally understuff the body for a more floppy, silly look. Over-stuffing will change the look dramatically. You will insert a neck strengthener which will help with the shape and stability of the head, while allowing you to understuff the bottom and stuff the head a little more.

      The hair, feet and arms are attached at the end. The skirt is crocheted to the body.

      Substitute yarns could be Bernat Blanket yarn or Big Twist from Joann’s. You may need to change the hook size if you change the yarn.

      This little doll is part of my “Squish Pals” collection. If you want to check out the other adorable patterns you can see them all here!

      Arms
      NOTE: I highly suggest you visit this post before attaching the arms and the legs. This is my favorite method by far to attach limbs, and is worth watching the video and seeing the tutorial pictures!
      Round 1: SC 7 in a magic circle
      Rounds 2-7: SC in each around.
      Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew on. Sew on between rounds 10 and 11.

      Feet
      With dress color:
      Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 6.
      Round 2: SC INC in each around. (12)
      Round 3: SC in the first, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (18)
      Round 4: SC in each around. (18)
      Change to skin color.

      Rounds 7-8: SC in each around. (9)
      Fasten off and leave a long tail to attach.
      Sew the legs on the front between rows 3 and 4.

      Hair
      Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 8.
      Round 2: SC INC in each around. (16)
      Round 3: SC in the first, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (24)
      Round 4: SC in the first 2, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (32)
      Rounds 5-7: SC in each around. (32) *tip: try the hair on here to make sure that it fits the head. If it is too loose, go back to round 4 and tighten your tension or size down a hook*
      Round 8: HDC, HDC INC, DC, DC INC, DC, DC INC, skip a stitch and slip stitch in the next. Skip a stitch and DC INC, DC , DC INC, HDC, SC in the remaining stitches.
      Fasten off and attach with the “part” on an angle.

      Bun
      Round 1: In a magic circle, SC 8.
      Round 2: SC INC in each around. (16)
      Round 3: SC in the first, SC INC in the next. Repeat around. (24)
      Rounds 4-5: SC in each around. (24)
      Round 6: SC in the first, INV DEC in the next. Repeat around. (16)
      Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew on the hair. Lightly stuff the bun and sew it on so that it covers the top three rounds of the hair part.

      Skirt
      On row 7 (the row where you changed to the dress color) DC around a post from the back of the doll. DC in each post around, making sure that the bottom of the doll is up, so that the DC points outward, like a skirt would. DC twice in the final stitch and slip stitch to the first DC.
      For the ruffle, skip a stitch and DC 3x in the next. DC 3x in the next stitch. Skip a stitch and slip stitch in the next. Repeat this process all the way around. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

      Sleeve
      Chain 12. Turn and SC in the second chain from the hook. SC, HDC 7x, SC, SC.
      Fasten off and sew over the arm, making sure the front and back of the sleeve touch the dress.
      Weave in the ends.

      Bow
      Chain 25. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Fold both sides into a bow shape. Cut a long piece of the same yarn and sew the center so the loops stay. This is the yarn that you will use to secure the bow to the bun, so make sure that you have enough length on both sides to attach it with a knot in the back. Wrap the long end over the middle multiple times to make the center knot.
