Crochet Patterns: Making Dolls
Making dolls from free crochet patterns available on the internet can save a parent or crafter a considerable amount of money when compared to the cost of commercially manufactured dolls. Crochet doll patterns present an opportunity to create a doll that is soft, the perfect size, and can be washed frequently to remove germs that will most assuredly accumulate over time. The skill level required to make crochet doll patterns is usually average at best, and the simplicity of most of the free crochet doll patterns allow a crafter to experiment with new modifications to older crochet patterns.
It is always a good idea to read through a crochet pattern before attempting a new project, especially if you are not familiar with the item you are creating. In the realm of crochet doll patterns, it is strongly recommended when possible to let the child choose which doll pattern they like – it’s a shame to go through the effort only to discover the child you intended the doll for does not like it. It is also important to take the doll size into consideration compared to the age of the child you are making it for. Here are some beautiful crochet doll patterns that are fairly simple and very fun to make:
