20181003_123417

I’ve been promising this one on my Youtube channel forver, and I’ve finally gotten around to putting it together.  So without too much gabbing, here’s the written version of the LOL Doll inspired body.  You can check out the video tutorial here: https://youtu.be/3sTen66GdyY

Time Needed: This one took awhile because there are a lot of parts. I would say give it at least 3 hours.

Skill Needed: Knowledge of basic crochet stitches, sc, dc, hdc, crochet in the round, joining, back loops only, etc. Some sewing.

Materials Needed:

  • Size G crochet hook
  • skin tone coloured worsted weight yarn
  • stuffing
  • yarn sewing needed
  • stitch markers
  • scissors

We begin the legs here. Again, do not fasten off, continue building.

skip 12 stitches, sc to make 1st leg hole

keep stuffing

sc2tog, 2 sc around (9)

sc around for 5 rounds (9)

sc2tog, 1 sc around (6)

make sure to finish stuffing.

fasten off leaving a tail. Weave between the last row of loops and pull first leg opening closed.

Attach yarn to unworked stitch for second leg.

Fasten off leaving a tail and weave it through the last row of loops and pull second leg closed. Use the extra yarn to sew up the crotch if needed.

Arms (Make 2 with skin tone coloured yarn)

ch 2, sc 3 in 2nd ch from the hook

2 sc in each stitch (6)

sc around for 2 rounds (6)

sc2tog once, 4 sc (5)

sc around for 3 rounds (5)

Fasten off. No need for stuffing since the arm is so small. Sew arms to the side of the body at shoulders.

I will include a pattern for the ears in the patterns for the individual dolls since they seem to fit onto the doll in different areas for each.

This is the basic doll body pattern that I will use for each doll pattern that I release.
