Elf Girl

Meet the second member of my elf family! I had so much fun making this little girl.

This is an intermediate pattern which includes different crochet stitches, color changes and quite a lot of details. If you are a novice toy maker and want to learn something new, you can still give it a try - I included detailed instructions, with step-by-step photos. But it does take quite a lot of patience.

You can find the pattern on Etsy, Ravelry or Craftsy.

And the elf I made when writing the pattern is also looking for a new home, take a look HERE.

Pattern: Sipsik aka Raggie

Free crochet pattern: Ragdoll Sipsik aka Raggie// Kristi Tullus (spire.ee)

Sipsik or Raggie, as he is known in the English translation, is a character from an Estonian children's book. Real Raggie is a ragdoll made from fabric, but I made a crocheted version and wrote down the pattern as well.

My First Doll

The story of this doll starts just like so many of my stories - I had an idea, bought a bunch of yarn for it, but never found the time to actually start making anything. For almost two years this box of yarn just sat on my shelf. But I kept thinking about it and doodling in my notebooks. And when I closed my toy store in the spring, I knew that after I finished all the patterns in my queue, I would finally find the time. And here she is - my first doll.

 

 

I always wanted to make my dolls quite small, but with a lot of details, yarn hair and round cheeks, but I didn't have a clear picture of what they would look like in my head. But once I started crocheting, it all just came together and I am happy with the result.

The yarn I used was Austermann "Algarve Grande", which is listed as worsted weight yarn, but because it is very dense, the thickness is actually just like most DK weight cotton yarns. Most of the doll is crocheted with 2,25 mm crochet hook (US size 1/B), skirt and hat with a 3,50 mm crochet hook (US size 4/E).

And I must say my little critics approve as well :) At about 28 cm (11") tall, she is just the right size for cuddling.
