Welcome back friends! It’s Part Two of our amigurumi boy doll free pattern crochet along for My Pal Pascal. I’m having so much fun with you all on this already and I hope you’re enjoying making your dolls too. Before we get into it, for those that need a reminder, here’s the crochet along details, schedule and reference for those that may need to go back and check out Part One.

The amirugumi boy doll free pattern for My Pal Pascal has been split into three parts to make creating him 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.

At the beginning of this week, our Pal Pascal is looking a bit like an alien. For Part Two of our amigurumi boy doll free pattern crochet along, we’ll be adding arms, hair and a nose to our pal Pascal to give him a bit more character and a more earthly appearance. Each arm is made separately and sewn onto the body, just below the neck. The nose is embroidered on simply and then the hair is crocheted as a hair cap and then sewn onto the head of our doll.

It’s been so much fun seeing everyone’s progress so far! Don’t forget that you can join in the fun with us over in The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community on Facebook and see everyone’s progress. I’m active in the group and will be available to answer any questions posed in the group as well.

If you love amigurumi patterns, I’ve got a bunch of them here for free on my blog. Here are some other free amigurumi patterns that you can find here at The Loopy Lamb:

Abbreviations:


Finished size:

  • Doll is approximately 9.5” tall

Gauge:

  • Doll: 5 sts across x 7 rows = 1” square
  • Clothing: 5 sts across x 7 rows = 1” square


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.
  • For a cleaner SCDEC, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each stitch rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease. Find my tutorial on how to do this HERE.
  • In Round 1 of the Body, the CH 1 is counted as a ST and should be worked into in Round 2 of the body.
  • Pants are created to fit snuggly on the body without the need of a button.  Take care when pulling over the feet so as not to stretch out the feet and legs. 


Special Techniques:

  • Invisible Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Place the tapestry needle through the top of the 2nd ST from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST of the round, under the back loop of the stitch, and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end.

Nose

Take a length of Brava Worsted in Almond and embroider a nose in Round 30 across 4 stitches.  Sew over the stitches multiple times until the nose sticks out from the face slightly.  FO and weave in end.
