R 16: (4sc, 1 dec) 3 times (15)

Later on while crocheting you should make sure that the marker stays in the center of the back

of the leg so that the line of where you change yarn color does not move towards the front. For

that you can crochet an extra sc if needed and move the marker.

rows).

Cut off the brown colored thread leaving a long tail for sewing. Cut off the cream colored

thread altogether and fix the end, then hide it between the rows.

Assembling of the toy

Fold the body of the toy so that the marker is in the center of the back side. Fold the upper

parts of the legs in half so that the front of the shoes face you. Attach the external stitches on

the sides of the body with the external stitches on the sides of the legs (see photo). Attach the

legs to the body by sewing around the legs using the connecting stitches grabbing both the

stitches of the legs and the stitches of the body in turns. You could also sew the legs on to the

body with the help of the needle if it is more comfortable for you. Once the legs are sewn to the

body, stuff loosely the body so it takes shape of the body and keeps it without being too firm. If

you want the doll to be seated easily and move his legs, do not stuff the body tightly in its lower

part. Then sew together the opening of the body using the connecting stitches. 

the neck tightly through the opening in the

upper part of the body.

Fix the head onto the body with the help of yarn

needles and attach it sewing in the round. The

head should be sturdy without leaning.

Stuff the arms not too tightly up to a bit

above the middle. Fix them with sewing

pins to the body and attach them sewing in

the round. If you want the shoulders to look

more natural press them with an iron

through a wet cloth.

The Hair

Crochet Hook 3 mm. Yarn in light-yellow color.

Try the «hat» on – it should fit very tightly on the head of your doll and not come down the

head too much. I had to crochet 13 rows for the «hat» of my doll. The «hat» for your doll could

take more rows or less taking into consideration the yarn you are using and the thickness of

your crocheting. If when crocheting approximately the 7 th row you see that you don’t need to

add any more rows, then do not add any. If see that you need more increases, do one more row

of them ((7 sc, 1 ins) 6 times), and then crochet the rows of 52 stitches.

R 1: 6 sc in MR (6)

R 2: 6 inc (12)

R 3: (1 sc, 1 inc) 6 times (18)

R 4: (2 sc, 1 inc) 6 times (24)

R 5: (3 sc, 1 inc) 6 times (30)

R 6: (4 sc, 1 inc) 6 times (36)

R 7: (5 sc, 1 inc) 6 times (42)

R 8: (6 sc, 1 inc) 6 times (48)

R 9-13: 1sc in each st around (48)

Cut off the thread leaving a long tail for sewing.

Wind the yarn around the piece of carton in size (14,5″ x 3,5″) and cut the yarn along one of the

sides.

For the hat not to move fix it onto the head of the toy with the help of the pins. Do not put it too

far on the forehead otherwise the hair will cover all the face. Sew on the hat to the head

following the last row of the crochet. 

Now we are going to attach the hair. Take the prepared cut hairs and, following the first

row of the hat, start attaching the hairs as in the photos.

Do not attach the hairs too close to each other – leave the distance between the hairs about 0.8

cm or (0,3inch), then you will see where to add the hairs when needed.

Go up 0,5 cm (0,2 inch) from the first row of the hairs and start to insert the hairs in a

checkerboard pattern. Continue until you fill all “hat” with hairs.

Cut the hair of the doll in the way that you like. Do not cut it a lot at once, try to cut gradually

forming the desired haircut. With the help of a blusher add some color to the cheeks.

That is all! Now you can dress up the Doll!
