Amigurumi Doll Base Crochet Pattern CAL (Part 1: Materials)

| Original: August 02, 2019

Hello and welcome to my very first Crochet-Along!

I can't wait to share with you this adorable amigurumi doll base pattern with you. The reason why I decided to split this post into multiple posts for a crochet-along is that some parts are more complicated than others.

If you would like to purchase an ad-free PDF version of this crochet pattern, you can find it in my Ravelry Store.

I wanted to share additional photos of the more complicated parts of this crochet pattern plus I think it would be awesome to see everyone's progress making this doll!

This is a great doll base crochet pattern... for multiple reasons! I love her size, especially the size of her head. I put pipe-cleaners inside her body to help her neck be a bit more sturdy and her limbs poseable. My girls love her.

More recently, I've been slowly designing and making outfits for Mini Mimi. Soon enough, she'll have a full wardrobe of her own!
