I’m so excited to share my amigurumi doll pattern to make My Dolly Molly with you! This amigurumi doll pattern will be split into 3 separate parts for the My Dolly Molly Crochet Along. This post contains information on how to join the crochet along and Part One of the pattern. Check back each Friday for the next part of the pattern.

I hope you will join along with us for the crochet along. If you do, you can join The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community Group on Facebook where we’ll be chatting and sharing our progress.

The free crochet doll pattern for My Dolly Molly has been split into three parts to make creating her a little more manageable and so you can crochet along with us. Please reference the posts below for each part of the CAL and instructions.

Before we get more into the pattern, let’s talk about My Dolly Molly. Molly is a crochet doll with clothes that are removeable. For the crochet along, Molly’s dress is made as a separate piece and can be removed and put back on the doll. If you all want to see more outfits and accessories for Molly, let me know and I can try to create some more free doll clothes patterns for her in future posts.

Molly was designed in a way that minimizes sewing. Molly’s legs, body and head are all crocheted in a single piece. The arm and hair are made separately and sewn on. Her doll dress is crocheted in a separate piece and as mentioned above, is removeable. There is some sewing for the dress in order to fasten the buttons but that was unavoidable in order to make the dress removeable.

    • Thanks Janie! I appreciate you letting me know this is something you’re interested in. If there is enough interest in creating more outfits and accessories for her, I will definitely begin working on them.:-).

      • Ha e had visual issues so I’ve not been able to begin to make Advent Amy, so as it’s going to be a push to get all made, I’ve decided to make the doll. Plus dress, shirts t-shirt and hat, tank top and shirt and boots. ..

        I was wondering, are you thinking of making some event clothes like simple Xmas dress, ball gowns, New Year’s Eve outfit wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses.

        Would be fun to have at least one going out outfit.

        50u fouof do like Miss Money Penny and with Pascal Pal being dressed as James bond, with eithr a suit and accessories or a single polo neck jumper and maybe rope around his upper shoulder and his body, going to do a bit of rock climbing scenario.

        Or with Advent Amy dressed in her ball gown. Pascal could be the Prince or another character.

        You could actually extend this CAL to create outfits like this, for festival, holidays. Sports, school wear, swim wear, traditional country outfits, do the child/children can have further outfits.

        Maybe even start creating furniture to hold the clothes line the clothes rail or like a step ladder feature that they peg clothes on if simple. Maybe just a washing basket.

        Just so much that could become extension of the original idea. Like with Xmas, you can have various nativity outfits. create a little script and clothes changes as there are only 2 dolls to act. This could them become like fancy dress outfits for storytelling, pantomime, each quarter, a new doll is added as a new classmate or a friend I. The street.

        Then job clothes, do they get to play the role of different career options, nurse, doctor, firemen/woman, ambulance drivers, technicians, police officers male/female…the list is endless.

        I’m sure if you done a survey, a lot 9f these suggestions and more would materialise for you. It would certainly be something I would enjoy doing and to be able to expand the wardrobe as well as other dolls, may Eva baby sister/brother or both!

        Festival and events like Valentine’s Day, At Patrick’s Day, Easter St. Andrews Day, Halloween, Xmas. Weddings, christening, 1st Holy Communion, Confirmation, Diwali, Ramadan, Hanuka (think that’s how spelt), plus other religious celebrations.

        Then events like holidays -beach wear and accessories for play, cruising, wacky holidays etc. Pilot outfits, air crew, Butlins or red coats or other holiday resort outfits, things like Disney world bit I’m thinking might not be allowed as could need copyright permission and that could be costly.

        The world in wardrobe and accessories is your oyster so to speak, which allows us to mention food and drinks etc.

        I am sure that you have load of your own sitting waiting to share with us all. So my answer to your query is yes please. I would love to be able to continue this CAL and to expand the wardrobe, props. , accessories, dolls etc.

        I really appreciate all the effort you ha e gone to to prepare this CAL. Hopefully, I can get a few items made fir this Xmas. I’ve been looking for the calender boxes but they are out of stock in the UK but as I won’t be able to do all the items thought that I could use the wooden box hubbie just received as a gift box and we could use like the sticky letters and pearls to decorate the lid with Advent Amy and year created, then out in Advent Amy, plus whatever outfits are ready. Are there plans to create a winter jacket/coat as was looking through list and couldn’t see one there. Same version for Any and Pascal just different colours. Maybe with or without hoods. With or without fir around hoods, knee length, calf length, or hip length etc.

        If room I might ask hubbie to create a hanging rail (he uses the magic loom and creates like tubes which are quite sturdy really but it depends on the type of wool used. He has books that have doll patterns specifically for the magic loom or the looms, so maybe you could consider obtaining a magic loom (in the UK, they are around £2 via Amazon, the. Create some designs fir wardrobe for either doll clothes or like hanging rail covering dowels with the tubed knitted fabric abs push the dowels inside to create the pole effect. You might be able to do some advertising by agreeing a special price with the loom manufacturers or Amazon, to allow tour followers to buy the magic loom or the proper looms and learn a new craft whilst expanding the Advent Amy, Pascal and maybe baby siblings, Pal their wardrobe and accessories.

        I believe that maybe there is enough suggestions for you to look through and consider.

        Thank you for all your hard work, much appreciated. I will send you photos of what I manage to make before 2st December, so you can feel proud of your gift assisting me in my newish hobby. Once again, thank you for all your hard work.

        • I’m sorry to hear that you have had visual issues. Hopefully you are able to get them resolved and feel better soon.
          Thank you for all of your suggestions and your kind words. I have polls posted this week in The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community on Facebook to get feedback from folks on next year’s CAL as well as to gauge interest in more doll items in the future (beyond just the CAL projects).

  3. I just love this sweet little doll! I, too, would love to have more clothes to make for her. Maybe even a hat or two, shoes and a purse. She looks like she could be getting ready to go to a party and a fancy dress would be needed also. Endless possibilities! Thank you for sharing this precious little girl with us!

    • I’m so glad that you enjoy her. Thanks for sharing your interest in more clothing and accesories for her. I will add that to my list of pattern considerations for the future. If you haven’t already done so, I have 2 other dolls on my blog, My Pal Pascal and My Girl Pearl that you can check out and the clothes between the dolls are interchangeable. 🙂
