Finished doll measures 4" tall.


General Tips & Techniques:

* Be sure to keep yarn tension firm and consistent throughout your work.

* At the end of each row, I have given the number of stitches you should have. This is just a guide. If you are off by 1 or 2 stitches, don’t worry about it. Amigurumi is very forgiving.

* I chose Caron Simply Soft for this pattern. You may substitute any medium-weight worsted yarn. Bernat Satin or Red Heart Soft work well too.


Magic Ring: Leaving a long tail, at least 12”, Ch. 4, join with sl st into first st. Work 10 sc into center ring and around tail, do not join. Pull tail to close the hole in the ring. Tie tail to working yarn. Mark beginning of row (piece of contrasting yarn or paperclip works fine). From this point on, you will be working in the round
