We are ready to go!! I’m so excited to start this CAL with you – my very first one! I’ve always been a bit nervous about hosting one of these, but with Morgan I’m not nervous anymore. It just feels right!
What You’ll Need
Yarn: Lion Brand Coboo or other similar tan or skin color DK yarn, 1 skein for doll
Lion Brand Wool-Ease DK Cake or other DK yarn, 1 skein for dress and boots
Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool or other worsted weight yarn, 1 skein for hair
Hook: US Size D (3.25mm) – The video shows a 3.00mm. I didn’t realize a size D hook would be a different mm and used a different one for the video. To make Morgan as shown use 3.25mm.
Notions: Safety eyes (embroider eyes for a small child), small amount of polyester fiberfill, yarn needle, stitch marker, scissors
Finished Size: Approximately 13″ tall
Gauge: 24 sts and 24 rows = 4″ in sc
Crochet Morgan Doll Pattern
Doll is worked in continuous rounds without joining. Use a stitch marker to mark first st of each round.
Stuff legs, body and head as you go. I found that when I waited to stuff at the end of a section it was lumpy. About every inch or so I will stop to stuff.
Ch 4 at the beginning of a row counts as dc, ch 1.
Increase (Inc): 2 sc in next st
Invisible Decrease (Dec): insert hook in front loop only of next 2 sts, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through two loops
V-stitch (V-st): dc, ch 1, dc in same st
In the video, you can see that the body of my doll is turning out smaller and I show a 3.0mm hook. I made the legs with the same hook as the first doll, which was a 3.25mm!! Please use a 3.25mm hook. Both of mine showed size D. At least I know my tension isn’t off now. Haha!
