Free Amigurumi Crochet Firefighter Doll Outfit Pattern

Today’s Crochet Firefighter Doll Outfit Pattern was created based on reader feedback requesting more patterns to turn my customisable dolls (Advent Adam, Addy & Amy) into career dolls.  The most requested career costume was for a firewoman / fireman doll.

This easy pattern includes detailed instructions, a step-by-step video tutorial and some photo references to help you through the embroidery.

All you’ll need is a little yarn, some time and buttons and you’ll soon have your own unique doll that makes a great gift for a child whose aspirational career goal is to become a fire fighter.

Color Options for Your Crochet Firefighter Doll Outfit

While I used black yarn as the main body color for my crochet firefighter doll outfit, you can absolutely substitute your favorite color instead of using black yarn.  If you need color inspiration for the standard coloring of firefighter uniforms here are the main colors that I’ve seen:

  • Tan (the almond color of Brava Worsted is what I used in the video tutorial and it’s super close match)
  • Red (When picking a red yarn, you’re looking for a bright, cherry red)
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Dark Green (like forest green)

I’ve used yellow yarn and light grey yarn to minic the look of the reflective strip you see in various areas of firefighter outfits. It’s hard to make substitutions here unless you have say a metallic yarn.


What Skills Do I Need to Successfully Complete This Project?

​To follow along with the written pattern, you should have some experience reading patterns and the basic principles of crochet.  However, because the video tutorial is available where I walk you through the pattern from beginning to end, beginners can do this project, using the video as support.

You’ll also need to have some knowledge of basic sewing since we will be sewing buttons onto our crochet firefighter doll outfit.  Again, if you need help, I show you how in the video tutorial

(Click links to view tutorials for that stitch)


Special Stitches and Techniques:

  • Invisible Finish/Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Skip a stitch and place the tapestry needle through the top of the next stitch from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST worked 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.

  • Single Crochet (SC) Join: With a slip knot already on the hook, insert hook into the designated stitch. YO and pull up a loop.  YO and pull through both loops on the hook. View the SC Join tutorial here.

Finished Size:

  • To fit Advent Adam & Addy dolls – 10” tall dolls


Gauge:

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


Notes:

  • These clothing and accessory patterns are designed to fit my Advent Adam and Addy dolls.  Gauge is important for ensuring that your doll clothes fit your doll appropriately.  If you don’t plan to match gauge, ensure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout each project.  Using the same yarn line and hook throughout each project can also assist with minimizing gauge/tension changes.

  • For a cleaner SCDEC on pieces worked in continuous rounds, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each ST rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease.  Check out my invisible decrease tutorial on to see it done.

  • For pieces worked in turned rows, use a normal SCDEC stitch instead of the invisible decrease.

  • Colour changes are done using the last YO of the previous stitch (except where otherwise indicated).

Work 3 SC in the corner and turn so you are working along the bottom of the piece. SC in the next 5 STs, work 3 SC in the next corner. T

urn the piece so you are working up the other short side. Work 1 SC in each of the next 4 rows, work 3 SC in the next corner.

FO leaving a long tail for sewing.

Use yarn tail to sew emblem with RS facing out, to the front of the hat (opposite the elongated section created in the last two rounds of the hat).

Embellish the emblem however you’d like (see tips for alternatives below). I used some black embroidery thread and embroidered an FD on mine for Fire Department (see photo below for reference) but feel free to customize to your preference.

What Can I Add to the Emblem If I Hate Embroidery?

I get that a lot of people hate embroidery so here are some things that can be used instead of embroidering the letters FD on your emblem:

  • Cut the letters out of a little bit of felt.  

  • Don’t want to add FD? Use your child’s initials instead.

  • Sew a fun shaped button to the emblem – like a star, heart or flame (these could also be great additions to the jacket!)

  • Use a mini sew-on patch

  • Use fabric paint (be sure to do a test with it first)
