Mini Noso – Small One Piece Crochet Doll

The Mini Noso, the smallest crochet doll that is completely finished WITHOUT sewing!

This ensures that your Noso at the end looks exactly like here in the pictures, without the arms, legs or head being shifted, due to slightly offset sewing.

Noso means “no sew”, which is exactly the case with these crochet dolls.

This Mini One Piece Crochet Doll is exclusively crocheted with single crochet stitches in spiral rounds with increases and decreases and is therefore perfect for beginners.

The depicted Amigurumi Mini One Piece Crochet Doll has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has a height of 5.5 cm.

Crochet the Head, Upper Body and First Leg

The first part of the doll which is crocheted in one piece consists of the head, upper body and the first leg. All is crocheted in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches in the color Soft Apricot.

Apart from the head, it is recommended to fill all parts of the body with polyfill only after all limbs have been completed.

Use the check boxes to mark your finished rounds, rows and steps.

  • Crochet the head in spiral rounds in Soft Apricot.
  • Round 1: 6 sc into the Magic Ring (6 stitches).
  • Round 2: [1 increase] repeat till end of the round (12 stitches).
  • Round 3: [1 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of the round (18 stitches).
  • Round 4: 1 sc, 1 increase, [2 sc, 1 increase] repeat 5 times, 1 sc (24 stitches).
  • Round 5: [7 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of the round (27 stitches).
  • Round 6: Crochet 27 sc (27 stitches).
  • Round 7: The 2 marker threads that are used in this round will later indicate the places where the safety eyes will be attached. 6 sc, 1 sc with a marker thread, 4 sc, 1 sc with a marker thread, 15 sc (27 stitches).

  • Round 8-9: 2 rounds, each round 27 sc (27 stitches).
  • Round 10: [7 sc, 1 decrease] repeat till end of the round (24 stitches). If you use safety eyes, attach them now where the threads are.

  • Round 12: Fill the head with polyfill. [1 sc, 1 decrease] repeat till end of the round (12 stitches).

  • You now have a circle at the head that counts 24 stitches. These stitches are divided into 3 parts. From the two smaller parts, each consisting of 6 stitches, the arms will be crocheted later and from the larger part, consisting of 12 stitches, the torso.

  • Round 17: To separate the respective areas, proceed as follows: Separate the 1st arm. One arm area consists of 6 stitches. First, crochet 1 single crochet stitch. Then push through the 7th stitch from the crochet hook with the crochet hook still attached to the last crocheted stitch. To do this, simply skip 6 stitches and then push through the 7th stitch.

  • Tighten the thread and crochet 1 single crochet stitch. With this you have successfully separated the first arm area.

  • Now crochet 5 single crochet stitches along the body. Then separate the 2nd arm, also consisting of 6 stitches. To do this, proceed in the same way as for the 1st arm. Skip 6 stitches and push the crochet hook through the 7th stitch. Tighten the thread so that the 6 stitches are separated and crochet 1 single crochet stitch.

  • Then crochet another 4 single crochet stitches. With this you have crocheted a total of 12 stitches and successfully separated both arm areas (12 stitches).

  • Round 18: [2 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of the round (16 stitches).
  • Round 19: Crochet 16 sc (16 stitches).
