One Piece Crochet Doll Pattern

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.

The crochet doll described here can not only serve as a template for your own creations (that is why the depicted doll is featureless, without clothes or the like), but also show how dolls and Amigurumi in general, whether large or small, in one piece and without sewing on arms and legs can be crocheted.

Let your creativity run wild and use this template to create your own characters, superheroes, aliens, zombies, animals, robots and much, much more.

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. If you want to crochet a larger doll, use a thicker yarn and/or crochet hook.

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 in the color Soft Apricot.

Some rows are crocheted only into 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.

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 of the doll 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: [3 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of the round (30 stitches).
  • Round 6-11: 6 rounds, each round 30 sc (30 stitches).
  • Round 12: [3 sc, 1 decrease] repeat till end of the round (24 stitches).
  • Round 13: 1 sc, 1 decrease, [2 sc, 1 decrease] repeat 5 times, 1 sc (18 stitches).
  • Round 14: [1 sc. 1 decrease] repeat till end of the round (12 stitches).

  • Round 15: Crochet the complete round into the front loop only. [1 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of thte round (18 stitches).
  • Round 16: Fill the head with polyfill. 1 sc, 2 increases, [2 sc, 1 increase] repeat 5 times, 1 sc (24 stitches).
  • Round 17: [3 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of the round (30 stitches).
  • Round 18: 2 sc, 1 increase, [4 sc, 1 increase] repeat 5 times, 2 sc (36 stitches).
  • Round 19: [5 sc, 1 increase] repeat till end of the round (42 stitches).

  • Round 20: You have now a circle with a total of 42 stitches. These 42 stitches will be separated into three parts, two small parts with each 9 stitches, those will be later the arms, and one big part with 24 stitches, that will be the rest of the upper body.

  • In order to separate the respective parts, proceed as follows: First, you separate the first arm. One arm needs 9 stitches. To separate those 9 stitches, skip the next 9 stitches on the circle and push your crochet hook through the 10th stitch on the circle.

  • Pull the thread tight so the skipped 9 stitches result in its own small circle. This will later be one arm of the doll.

  • Now crochet 1 sc. You have successfully separated the first arm.

  • Now crochet 11 sc along the body. Subsequently, the second arm is separated likewise consisting of 9 stitches. Proceed the same way as for the first arm. Skip the next 9 stitches and push your crochet hook through the 10th stitch. Again, tighten the thread so that the 9 stitches are clearly separated and crochet 1 sc.

  • Crochet another 11 sc. You crocheted now a total of 24 stitches and successfully separated the arms from the body (24 stitches).

  • Round 21-24: 4 rounds, each round 24 sc (24 stitches).
  • Round 25: You now start crocheting the first leg. Crochet 7 sc.

  • Each leg consists of 12 stitches. To divide the first leg from the other leg, push your crochet hook through the 13th stitch from the hook.

  • Afterwards crochet 1 sc.

  • Now crochet 4 sc to end the round (12 stitches).
  • Round 26-27: 2 rounds, each round 12 sc (12 stitches).
  • Round 28: 2 sc, crochet into the front loop only, 4 increases, crochet again into both loops, 6 sc (16 stitches).
  • Round 29: Crochet 16 sc (16 stitches).
  • Round 30: 3 sc, [1 decrease] repeat 4 times, 5 sc (12 stitches).
  • Finish: Cut the thread very generous to be able to crochet later a further 6 stitches to close the opening. Continue with the crochet pattern for the 2nd leg (“Crochet the Second Doll Leg”).

Crochet the Second Doll Leg

Continue Crocheting the second leg in Soft Apricot in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches. For this a thread is attached to the leg opening and then continue crocheting normally.

  • Crochet the leg in Soft Apricot in spiral rounds.
  • Round 1: Take your yarn and make a knot big enough that it cannot slip through a stitch.

  • Next, push the crochet hook into the stitch on the back of the doll that is closest to the already finished leg (see picture). The front side of the doll is the side where the 4 increases on the foot were crocheted.

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

  • Now push the crochet hook into the next stitch on the front side and crochet 1 sc.

  • Crochet 11 sc and done is the first round of the second leg. The last sc is crocheted into the same stitch as where the yarn was pulled through at the beginning (12 stitches).
  • Round 2-3: 2 rounds, each round 12 sc (12 stitches).
  • Round 4: 2 sc, crochet into the front loop only, 4 increases, crochet again into both loops, 6 sc (16 stitches).
  • Round 5: Crochet 16 sc (16 stitches).
  • Round 6: 3 sc, [1 decrease] repeat 4 times, 5 sc (12 stitches).
  • Finish: Cut the thread very generous to be able to crochet later a further 6 stitches to close the opening. Continue with the crochet pattern for the left arm (“Crochet the Left Doll Arm”).

Crochet the Left Doll Arm

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

  • Crochet the arm in Soft Apricot in spiral rounds.
  • Round 1: First, take the yarn and tie a knot that cannot slip through a stitch. Next, push the crochet hook through the stitch directly at the “Armpit” of the doll. Yarn over 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.

  • Now push with the crochet hook into the next stitch (the one directly at the opposite, see pictures), tighten the thread and crochet 1 sc.

  • Crochet 8 sc and done is the first round of the arm. The last sc is crocheted into the same stitch as where the yarn was pulled through at the beginning (9 stitches).
  • Round 2: Crochet 9 sc (9 stitches).
  • Round 3: 4 sc, 1 increase, 4 sc (10 stitches).
  • Round 4-6: 3 rounds, each round 10 sc (10 stitches).
  • Finish: Cut the thread very generous to be able to crochet later a further 5 stitches to close the opening. Continue with the crochet pattern for the right arm (“Crochet the Right Doll Arm”).

Crochet the Right Doll Arm

The right arm is also crocheted in Soft Apricot in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches. Again, the yarn is first attached to the arm and then crocheted.

  • Round 1: 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 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.

  • Now push the crochet hook into the next stitch and crochet 1 sc.

  • Crochet 8 sc and done is the first round of the arm. The last sc is crocheted into the same stitch as where the yarn was pulled through at the beginning (9 stitches).
  • Round 2: Crochet 9 sc (9 stitches).
  • Round 3: 4 sc, 1 increase, 4 sc (10 stitches).
  • Round 4-6: 3 rounds, each round 10 sc (10 stitches).
  • Finish: Do not cut the yarn but continue with the next step “Finishing the Crochet Doll”.

Finishing the Crochet Doll

Finally fill the body, legs and arms with polyfill. To do this, first stuff the body through the openings in the arms and legs and then the respective limbs themselves with polyfill.

After the whole body is filled with polyfill, it is time to close the openings.

  • Close the Legs: [1 decrease] repeat till end of the round (6 stitches).
  • Finish: Close the opening and hide the thread.
  • Close the Arms: [1 decrease] repeat till end of the round (5 stitches).
  • Finish: Close the opening and hide the thread.
