I have always been fascinated by dolls, particularly handmade ones. After years of carrying an idea, I'm so happy to introduce my newest creation. Sweet as can be, Josefina doll comes with her Jeffery elephant pillow.
Josefina measures 9” (22.9 cm) in sitting position or 15” (38 cm) including legs. Jeffery is only 6” (15.2 cm) across; he is the smallest and the cutest elephant pillow I ever made. They both are made from DK weight yarn (3) using a 3.25 mm (D) crochet hook.
Amigurumi dolls are so much fun to make! Not to worry if you are new to amigurumi style crochet, I included everything you need in the PATTERN, even tips and tricks for making doll's neck support using cotton swabs. You will need double-sided tipped swabs with firm (not wooden) base. Using this method it is very easy to expand the neck base widthwise and lengthwise if your doll turns out bigger or smaller.
Josefina’s dress is removable, so you can make a few of them in different colors for any occasion. You can even make her dress shorter or longer. The hair is done in 1 piece as a wig and sewn onto the head (instructions are also in the PATTERN).
I hope you will enjoy this pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it. I can’t wait to see what you make.
