I’m excited to share my latest amigurumi project: My Girl Pearl Easy Crochet Doll Pattern. My Girl Pearl is a sweet little crochet doll that has removeable clothes. The doll dress has been designed to make it easy for little fingers to take it off and put it back on with ease. This amigurumi doll has been designed in a way to minimize as much sewing as possible. The legs, body and head are crocheted together in a single piece so you just have to sew on the arms, hair cap, pigtails and bows. The pigtails are each crocheted in a single pieces so you’re not stuck sewing those curls on individually. I hope you enjoy the My Girl Pearl easy crochet doll pattern and I can’t wait to see your finished Pearls.

**I have made this easy crochet doll pattern free on my blog so as to make it as accessible for as many people as possible. Please do not copy the pattern or remove it from my blog in any way. If you would like to have an ad-free or offline copy of the pattern, they are available for a small fee in my Ravelry and Etsy shops which helps support my blog so that I can continue to provide free crochet patterns like this for everyone.**

I used Lion Brand Skein Tones yarn to design this easy crochet doll pattern. When I first learned about this line of colourway in the Lion Brand Basic Stitch yarn line, I was excited to use them to design some of my dolls. It is really important to me for my dolls to be inclusive so to have a these colourways specifically designed to match skin tones is amazing. I’ve made My Girl Pearl using the colourway Mahogany for her skin tone but she can be made in any of Lion Brand’s skein tone shades. Check out the full line of Skein Tones HERE.

Skill Level:

  • Easy


Terminology:

  • U.S. Terminology

Supplies:

Abbreviations:

Special Techniques:

  • Invisible Finish/Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Place the tapestry needle through the top of the 2nd ST from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST of the round, under the back loop of the stitch, and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end. Find a tutorial on my blog HERE.

Finished size:

  • Doll is approximately 10.5” tall

Gauge:

  • 4 sts across x 6 rows = 1” square


NOTES:

  • Gauge is important for ensuring that all of the parts of your doll fit appropriately. 
  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
  • For a cleaner SCDEC, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each stitch rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease.  Find my tutorial on how to do this HERE.
  • In Round 1 of the Body, the CH 1 is counted as a ST and should be worked into in Round 2 of the body.
