Free Crochet Doll Romper Pattern & Video Tutorial

This week I have another piece of doll clothing to add to our doll’s wardrobe: it’s a crochet doll romper pattern! This is one of my favorite outfits that we have made for our amigurumi dolls so far. Included in this free crochet pattern are detailed instructions as well as a step-by-step video tutorial.

This pattern is Week 18 of the Amigurumi Advent Calendar Crochet Along and is designed to fit my Advent Amy doll pattern which is a 10 inch doll when crocheted to gauge. However, it could fit a number of my other amigurumi doll patterns that I have available.

How to Crochet a Doll Romper:

This crochet doll rompoer is crocheted from the bottom-up, which means that we will crochet each leg of the romper separately and then join them. Then we will work on the body and then the straps of our romper. Once that is completed, we will crochet two pockets and sew them onto the front of our romper.

The tops of the pockets are left open because my little girl insisted that the pockets be functional. In my sample, I used two different colors of yarn to create contrast but feel free to use the same color if that is your preference. I’ve seen some folks use variegated yarns for their pockets which also creates a cool contrast so have fun and experiment. This little detail can have a big impact.

If this is your first time making different outfits for dolls, it’s important to know that gauge is important to ensure the clothes fit your doll (just like real crochet garments!). If you don’t plan to match the gauge given in the pattern, make sure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout your projects as that will help minimize issues. Using the same yarn brand throughout your projects can also help minimize changes in tension. This isn’t full-proof of course, but it does help.

Free Doll Crochet Patterns to Check Out

It is hard to believe that we are approaching the last section of free doll clothes patterns that will release as part of this crochet along. It has been a lot of work to design all of these patterns, test them, photograph them and create videos. My husband (who kindly edits all of the photos and videos for my blog) and I have put in hundreds of hours of work into hosting this crochet along. It has totally been worth every minute when I see you all sharing your beautiful projects and the excitement you have in expectation of giving your advent calendars to the little kids you are making them for. The best part will be the smiles on the faces of those little ones when they get their advent calendars.

Thank you to everyone that is participating in the crochet along, those that watch my videos, pin and share my content so that other people know about my blog and those that have bought the bundle or other PDF patterns. Without all of your support, I wouldn’t be able to continue to do what I love so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

If you are interested in participating in another year long crochet along like this one for next year, please let me know. I have had a couple of people request that we do another one next year but maybe do it with boy dolls. I want to confirm that there is enough interest for next year before starting to plan and design projects for another crochet along like this. So, if you’re interested, please let me know in the comments below or shoot me a quick message on social media.

Without further ado, let’s get to our free crochet doll romper pattern!

Skill Level:

  • Easy

Terminology:

  • US Term

Supplies:

Abbreviations:


Special Techniques and Stitches:

  • 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. Learn how to do this with my invisible finish/join tutorial.

Finished Size:

  • Clothing to fit Advent Amy Doll which is approximately 10.5” tall.


Gauge:

  • Clothing: 4 sts across x 6 rows = 1” square.

  • Doll: Rounds 1 – 4 of the Leg = 1.5” across at widest point.

 

Notes:

  • Gauge is important for ensuring that all of the parts of your doll fit appropriately.  If you don’t plan to match gauge, ensure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout your project. 

  • Most of the pieces are worked back and forth in turned rows, unless noted.  Read instructions for each piece carefully before starting to crochet.

  • For pieces worked in continuous rounds, a stitch marker is used to marker the first ST of the round and is moved up in each consecutive round.
  • CH 2 in Round 6 of the body of the bear counts as a ST.

  • You may need to fold down the ears of the bear for it to fit into the advent box.

  1. Love the idea of a Boy Crochet along for next year. Count me in for that.
    I am practically up to date but still have to attach all the buttons.
    Your videos are great if I get stuck, but your patterns are written so well that rarely happens. I love your furls crochet hook and am trying to save up to get one to try.
    I am really considering getting the bundle for the extra patterns…

    • Thanks for your input for next year Lucy! I’m considering a boy doll as well but I’m struggling to come up with as many clothing and accessories items for that project but I’ll definitely keep thinking about it. It makes me so happy to hear that you’re finding the videos and patterns helpful!

  2. It would be nice to have a CAL that allowed you to make either a boy (wig cap) or a girl (bun pig tails). Then for clothing we could have clothing for professionals: Doctor, lawyer, fire fighter. Police officer, etc., with their symbols. This way not only can the clothes be used for both dolls ee can also print symbols snd attach for job identification.

    • Thanks for your input Patty! A boy doll is the top of my list right now for next year but I’m still trying to brainstorm enough ideas to fill a whole advent calendar. If you have any outfit/accessory suggestions for a boy doll, please let me know 🙂

    Thank you!
