Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

When friends bring me a cartoon or drawing to bring to life and the height they want, I have to sketch it  to be sure I get the doll to scale. Above is the sketch I made to use as a guide :). 
I recommend anyone who can draw and crochet to use this method. Granted you'll be working the doll up and pulling out the stitches from time to time, but hopefully it will spare some of your time! 

Happy creating friends! 


If you would like to see the German translation of this pattern you can do so HERE. 
Kersten of fancrafts blog was ambitious enough to translate the pattern for you! :) 
Please show her blog some love as well!


  1. Thank you for such a cute little pattern. I have been searching for small crochet toys for my new baby granddaughers, this would be perfect for their little hands.

    1. Karen you are most welcome! :) If you have any questions as you work them up please let me know. I hope your grandkids get lots of playtime from your creations! Happy crafting, Dawn

  2. I love the idea and crocheted this pattern with joy. I wanted to ask to translate your pattern in german on my blog and link it to you (and translate your copyright as well)? If not, thats totally okay, but it might help some german crocheters who are even more worse in english than me :D
    Greetings Kerstin
    PS: For me its the Killer-Rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail ;)
