FO Friday – Candice Doll (and free pattern for shorts)

Happy Friday my lovely readers!

Today I want to show you the newest addition to my amigurumi family: a cute little dolly!

This doll is quite special though as it represents one of my good friends. She asked me for that doll as well as another one of her girlfriend (who is also one of my close friends). The goal is to finish them by next week and send them to their new owners in France.


I was very excited by that project as I think they will make very special gifts. I absolutely love how Candice turned out too! The pattern is from the very talented MaryJ Handmade/Le Arti Di Minerva on Ravelry. It’s a free pattern and there are no instruction for the assembly but if you are familiar with amigurumi it’s not too bad! I actually sew the head close and then added the body (worked continuously from the legs) and I didn’t stuff the arms.


For the hair, I used a hair cap, following the same pattern as for the head but with a hook size above (from a 3.5 to a 4) and stopping after row 14.

I also had to make up the clothes as I went and I wrote the pattern for the shorts. I thought I would share it here with you guys if you want to make your own doll 😊


  • ch – chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • sl st – slip stitch

Round 1 – Ch26, sl st in first ch

Rounds 2-6 – 26 sc around

Start on the first leg, you will work only with the next 13 stitches

Round 7-9 (leg 1) – 13 sc around

Fasten off and join yarn to the remaining 13 stitches

Round 7-9 (leg 2) – 13 sc around

Fasten off. Sew the tails in and you’re finished!

I hope you guys enjoyed the pattern, please tag me on instagram if you end up sharing your pictures @emmacraftsdesign

Have a great weekend!

Long time no see!

Hi guys! 

I don’t know if you remember my amigurumi doll, but it got very neglected over the Christmas period/ beginning of the year. I’m aiming to finish most of my wips before starting new projects, and I saw her sitting all alone in her WIP basket so I decided to finish her body at least and I can get working on a cute dress later on during the year.  
The hair has been taking FOREVER! So she still had a bald patch but hopefully it will get covered by the end of the week! 

I wanted her to still be in a happy mood so I’ve made her first accessory, a headband with a bow. Looks like it worked, she gave me her most beautiful smile!

Which reminds me, my doll still doesn’t have a name. Maybe you guys could give me suggestions and I’ll chose the one I like the most and make it official next Monday with her (hopefully) being finished! 😊

Wishing you all a great last week of February
