Mini human, crochet doll pattern

How about that! I didn’t make an animal this time but a human. This actually started as my holiday fun project but because it took quite some effort to design this doll, I found it a waste to not publish a pattern for it. This is the result, meet Mini Me, just an example to make Mini You or any sturdy doll amigurumi.

You probably wonder how this all started. Why on earth would I make a human? Well, I was browsing Instagram when I saw this terribly cute Doctor Who doll and I immediately got this idea of making myself as crochet doll so ‘I’ could pose with my crochet animals in pictures. Hah! How much fun would that be?! So, I started working on the doll and it was easier said than done. It took me quite some time to get everything as I wanted and of course my doll had to have a special feature too, I wanted a head that could turn. Long ago I made a doll with a rotatable head. It was very easy to make and the result was amazing. A head like that you make in one piece, the smallest part at the bottom you push into the actual head part, to create a cavity. It’s very effective and also gives your doll a nice chin and neck.

When most of the doll was finished I realised what a special and sturdy looking doll it had become. Nothing like the ones I found on the internet. It would be such a waste to not write a pattern for it, but a ‘mini me’? I can’t expect you crafters wanting to make me! That is why the pattern is called ‘Mini human’. You can make yourself or just a doll with it by changing the colours and by doing different hairstyles.

This crochet doll pattern includes extra suggestions and tips for different hairstyles. You only have to stick to a skin colour but as for the rest, you can use any colour you like to make your own special doll. Here are some more pictures of my doll and below them you can find information about the pattern

Info about & links to buy the pattern

This crochet doll is made with Istex Lett Lopi, a 100% wool with a lot of fuzziness. It is standing 7 inch/ 18 cm hight.

This is an easy to crochet pattern, creating the hairstyle takes the most time. The pattern contains a clear description of how to crochet and assemble the doll, with extra images and example pictures at the bottom to help you get everything right. In the pattern you can also find what materials you need, the yarn colour numbers, in short, everything you need to know to make your own sturdy doll.

This pattern has a one dollar release discount till Wednesday the 6th!

And post scriptum, I LOVE the hair of my doll. Lopi is so suitable for creating wild hair and you don’t even need hair gel for it, it stays in shape all by itself. I wish I had Lopi hair.

My dapper crochet badger!

Dapper crochet badger

Doesn’t he look dapper, this cute crochet badger amigurumi? Almost a year ago I found in a local bookshop, this utterly amusing postcard with the portrait of a rather realistic badger wearing a striped sweater. It inspired me to make a little sweater pattern for Falun and of course I made a portrait of him wearing it. Some of you may even remember seeing it on my Instagram.

It was my intention to add the pattern for that sweater to Falun’s pattern, but somehow it never really came to it. Because of the lovely reactions I got after posting another picture on IG where Falun was wearing the sweater, I decided to update the pattern as soon as possible.

What has changed and what do you need to do if you already purchased the pattern?

The pattern is completely updated. Falun’s original body was on the chubby side, so I rewrote that part and made a better looking version. There is also an instruction for an even slimmer body, which will fit the dapper sweater. And last but not least, the instruction for the cute sweater is included in the pattern.

Good news for those of you who already have the pattern, you’ll receive an automatic update about this and can download the new version (for free) anytime you like, how about that!

If you don’t have the pattern yet, you can buy it in my shop at Craftsy and Ravelry or order it from me here.

Now go and make yourselves a bunch of dapper creatures. Have a lovely end of summer dear crafters!
