I’m so excited to share my amigurumi doll pattern to make My Dolly Molly with you! This amigurumi doll pattern will be split into 3 separate parts for the My Dolly Molly Crochet Along. This post contains information on how to join the crochet along and Part One of the pattern. Check back each Friday for the next part of the pattern.

I hope you will join along with us for the crochet along. If you do, you can join The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community Group on Facebook where we’ll be chatting and sharing our progress.

The free crochet doll pattern for My Dolly Molly has been split into three parts to make creating her a little more manageable and so you can crochet along with us. Please reference the posts below for each part of the CAL and instructions.

Before we get more into the pattern, let’s talk about My Dolly Molly. Molly is a crochet doll with clothes that are removeable. For the crochet along, Molly’s dress is made as a separate piece and can be removed and put back on the doll. If you all want to see more outfits and accessories for Molly, let me know and I can try to create some more free doll clothes patterns for her in future posts.

Molly was designed in a way that minimizes sewing. Molly’s legs, body and head are all crocheted in a single piece. The arm and hair are made separately and sewn on. Her doll dress is crocheted in a separate piece and as mentioned above, is removeable. There is some sewing for the dress in order to fasten the buttons but that was unavoidable in order to make the dress removeable.

You can purchase an inexpensive ad-free PDF version of this pattern with all three parts together in one convenient file HERE on Ravelry and HERE on Etsy.

NOTES:

  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.

    Thank you for the pattern and CAL, Molly looks adorable! I’d love to see more clothes and accessories for her please

      Thanks Janie! I appreciate you letting me know this is something you’re interested in. If there is enough interest in creating more outfits and accessories for her, I will definitely begin working on them.:-).

  • Judy

    I just love this sweet little doll! I, too, would love to have more clothes to make for her. Maybe even a hat or two, shoes and a purse. She looks like she could be getting ready to go to a party and a fancy dress would be needed also. Endless possibilities! Thank you for sharing this precious little girl with us!

    • Ashley Parker

      Thank you so much :-). I’m excited that so many people want more accessories and clothes for Molly and I’ve already got some ideas in mind for future patterns for her 😉
