Free Doll Pattern

If you checked out my previous post...it has my very first free crochet pattern. Well that got me on a roll and I decided to share this simple and easy pattern! I made it up as I went along so please let me know if you want to try it out and find any errors or have any tips for me.

This is a quick and easy pattern to follow I whipped up one of these little gals in just a few hours. I used satin finish yarn (but really any yarn that is not chunky or worsted weight should work) plus I used 3.25 hook. I hope you like her....

Stuff your doll with fiber filling and then hold the doll in front of you and close the bottom of the doll flat across….then sew thru both the front and back this will close the doll and make a nice seam. Attach limbs….add hair and decorate…..maybe add a ruffle to her skirt a scarf or a turtle neck!
