Head

note: I updated the number of rows on 8/30

With Cream Yarn, ch 2, sc 6 in second ch from hook

R1 – inc in each sc (12 sts)

R2 – *sc, inc* x6 (18 sts)

R3 – *sc 2, inc* x6 (24 sts)

R4 – *sc 3, inc* x6 (30 sts)

R5 – *sc 4, inc* x6 (36 sts)

R6-8 – sc in each sc (36 sts per row)

R9 – *sc 4, dec* x6 (30 sts)

R10 – *sc 3, dec* x6 (24 sts)

R11 – *sc 2, dec* x6 (18 sts)

Insert safety eyes between R9 and R10, about 7 stitches apart. NOTE: you will want the eyes on the opposite side of the head from where the rows start. This way the color changes are not on the front of the doll.

Begin stuffing head to medium firmness.

R12 – *sc, dec* x6 (12 sts)

R13 – *sc 2, dec* x3 (9 sts)

Do not tie off. Continue to Body.

Body

note: I updated the numbering in this section on 8/30

Switch to Red Yarn

R14-17 – Sc in each sc (9 sts per row)

R18 – *sc 2, inc* x3 (12 sts)

R19 – sc in each sc (12 sts)

R20 – *sc, inc* x6 (18 sts)

Body Base

With Red Yarn, ch 2, sc 6 into second ch from hook

R1 – inc in each sc (12 sts)

R2 – *sc, inc* x6 (18 sts)

R3 – *sc 2, inc* x6 (24 sts)

R4 – *sc 3, inc* x6 (30 sts)

TIE OFF and leave a tail long enough for sewing.

Stuff body to medium firmness, sew the base to the bottom of the skirt. Pull the tail from the beginning of the body base up through the middle of the dress so it dips inward. This makes it so the doll can stand on its own.

Skirt Topper

With Purple Yarn, ch 17

R1 – In second ch from hook, sc, then continue sc until end, ch 1, turn

R2 – *sc, ch 1* x16, turn

R3 – *sc in gap, ch 1* x16, turn

R4 – *sc in gap, ch 1* x15, sc, TIE OFF leaving a small tail for sewing.

To attach to body, sew ch row to body between R19 and R20.

Hair

For the hair you will be creating 4 pieces. 1 long front “bang piece” and 1 long back piece for the left side of the head then 2 short pieces for the right side of the head.

Long Back Piece

With Yellow Yarn ch 30

Turn *inc, sc* x10, sc 9 in last 9 sc. TIE OFF

Bang Piece

With Yellow Yarn ch 30

Turn *inc, sc* x10, sc, sc, hdc, dc, triple crochet, triple crochet, dc, hdc, sc. TIE OFF

Right Side Piece (make 2)

With Yellow Yarn ch 20

Turn *inc, sc* x5, sc 9 in last 9 sc. TIE OFF

I wait to sew these pieces on until after I attach the cape hood. You want the hair pieces to pop out the front to give the illusion that she has a full head of hair.

Cape Hood

With Burgundy Yarn, ch 2, sc 6 in second ch from hook

R1 – inc in each sc (12 sts)

R2 – *sc, inc* x6 (18 sts)

R3 – *sc 2, inc* x6 (24 sts)

R4 – *sc 3, inc* x6 (30 sts)

R5 – *sc 4, inc* x6 (36 sts)

R6 – sc 5, inc, *dc 5, inc* x4, sc 5, inc (42 sts)

Note: In R6 & 7, increase using sc for the first and last increases, and increase using dc for the middle 4 increases.

R7 – sc 6, inc, *dc 6, inc* x4, sc 6, inc (48 sts)

R8 – sc 8, dc 32, sc 8 (48 sts)

R9 – sc 8, dc 32, hdc, sl st. TIE OFF leaving long enough tail for sewing

To attach the hood sew the bottom of the hood (the side with only sc) to the base of the back of the head, then pull the yarn up through the middle of the head to tack the top of the hood down. I leave it fairly loose so it has a more natural hood shape.

Cape Base

R1 – Sc, ch1 x 6

R2 – Turn, sc, ch 1 x6

R3 – Turn, sc, ch 2 x6

R4 – Turn, sc, ch 2 x7

Sew the initial ch7 to the base of the back of the head, where you attached the bottom of the hood.

Sew the arms to the side of the body.
