Learn how to Crochet Dolls in one-piece without sewing at all. If you are like me and not a big fan of sewing your different Amigurumi pieces together, then this crochet pattern will be just right for you.

This pattern is not only an instruction for how to crochet a doll without sewing but a template for your own doll and puppet creations (that is why the depicted doll is featureless, without clothes or the like). The here shown practice on how to create an Amigurumi with multiple elements that are not sewed on can easily be transferred to your own creations and are not only limited to dolls or the like.

The depicted crochet doll was crocheted using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook. The doll has a size of 8 cm (3.14 inch). If you want to crochet a larger doll, use a thicker yarn and/or crochet hook.

Doll Crochet Pattern

Needed Techniques

  • Magic Ring
  • Single Crochet Stitches (SC)
  • Increase
  • Decrease
  • Sewing / Weave In

Needed Materials and Tools

  • Yarn colors: The doll is supposed to be a template for your own creations, that is why there is only skin-colored yarn used for the depicted doll.
  • 2.5 mm metric Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissor and Polyfill
  • This pattern was crocheted using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn in the following colors: soft apricot/apricot (# 263)

IMPORTANT: This pattern is crocheted in spiral/continuous rounds, that means you continue crocheting round for round unless the instructions says otherwise. Because of that, always work a marker of any kind in the first stitch of each new round, to always know when a round begins and/or ends.

Crochet the Doll Head, Upper Body and one Leg

Although the doll is crocheted in one piece, you still need to use three times a new thread to crochet one leg and both arms but without any sewing. The first crocheted piece is also the biggest part of the doll and consists of the head, the upper body and the first leg. All of this is crocheted in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches.

Some rows are crocheted only in the back loop or front loop of a stitch. The back loop is the loop that is farthest from you while the front loop is the loop that is closest to you.

In my opinion, it is easier and better to fill the doll with polyfill AFTER you finished crocheting the whole body, including arms and legs, with an exception for the head. If you do so, leave always a long enough thread at the end of the arms and legs that is long enough to close them later.

(6 stitches) Then cut the thread, close the opening and hide the thread. Continue with the crochet pattern for the 2nd leg.

Crochet the Second Doll Leg

The second leg is crocheted by using the same yarn you just cut from the first crochet piece. First, the yarn is attached to the leg opening in a very easy manner and then crocheted same as the previous leg in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches.

  • 31. Round: The second leg is the left leg and is crocheted using your skin-colored yarn you used for the previous crochet piece. First, take the yarn and tie a knot that cannot slip through a stitch.

Crochet the Left Doll Arm

Both arms are like the previous parts of the doll crocheted in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches. Same ss with the second leg, the yarn is first attached to the arm opening and then crocheted.

  • 37. Round: First, take the yarn and tie a knot that cannot slip through a stitch. Next, push your crochet hook through the stitch directly at the “Armpit” of the doll. Yarn over the thread with your crochet hook and pull it through the stitch. Tighten the thread till the knot prevents any further pull. You have now 1 loop on your crochet hook.

Yarn over the thread with your crochet hook and pull it through the stitch. Tighten the thread till the knot prevents any further pull. You have now 1 loop on your crochet hook.

    • Hi Sarah, I used a 2.5 mm crochet hook and the finished doll has a hight of 8 cm or 3.14 inch. Hope i could help and have fun crocheting. 🙂

    • Hi Muriel, good that you mentioned it, because there are no buttons used at all … only if you want. 😉 I copied that from my “Voodoo Doll Pincushion” description because it was ALMOST identical to the materials that are needed for this blank doll.

  2. This is a great pattern and so versatile! Ever since I found seamless amigurumi I’m looking for more and this one can be anything, even an animal with a bit of adjustment. Thank you very much for this!

  3. Thank you so much for this pattern! Its such a versatile little doll and I love making it! I’ve been using this pattern to develop superhero dolls.
