Mignonette, 7 inches tall; Violette, 8.5 inches tall
Back to my first love, crochet dolls! Did you know, ami is not only short for amigurumi, but is also French for friend; Migonette and Violette are simply amis and simply friends :-)
The pattern for these two dolls borrows from crochet dolls I've made in the past. I love the move-able head on a neck stub joint, and the swing legs that attach to the body as you are crocheting, instead of being sewn on later.
I was also inspired by the amazing crochet dolls that you can find on Pinterest. If ever you find yourself in a creative slump, look at what the world is creating by searching Pinterest. Lots and lots of visual inspiration.
This doll has simple limbs, and a simple face. The pattern includes many construction images to help you.
Crochet works up so fast! It is almost instant gratification, and these dolls really are simple. And sweet. And friends :-)
Coming soon, some clothing! In the mean time, enjoy the crochet :-)
A small wardrobe for Violette is now available. Her trousseau is crocheted of Knit Picks Palette (a fingering weight wool yarn) with a D hook
