Crochet Chiffon Doll

This is the basis for all my crochet Chiffon (French for rag) style dolls. With this basic pattern, and with a few minor changes, you can make Raggedy Ann/Andy, Holly Hobbie or any other style doll you wish. These dolls are approx. 20 inches tall and except for the shoes, have removable clothing. The head, body and arms are the same for each doll. The legs are different depending on what style shoes you want you doll to have. The hair is attached the same for all dolls, just the length and style are different. I’ve included several styles of clothes, but once you’ve made a few dresses, jumpers, overalls, aprons, etc. you’ll be able to improvise your own with no problems.

Pictures can be found here: http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/chiffondollpictures/my_photos

THIS PATTERN IS AN ORIGINAL! PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO SELL THIS PATTERN OR PASS IT OFF AS YOUR OWN. I'M SHARING THIS PATTERN FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO ENJOY MAKING A CHIFFON DOLL. YOU MAY MAKE THESE DOLLS AND SELL THE FINISHED PRODUCT BUT NOT THE PATTERN ITSELF. IF I FIND THIS FREE PATTERN BEING ABUSED I'LL REMOVE IT. Thanks

Materials:
All yarn is worsted weight acrylic yarn. Colors will depend on what you want, so I’ve listed color letters instead of actual colors used.

Face, body, legs and arms: Color A
Boots/Shoes: Color B
Socks: Color C (not necessary if doing long boots.)
Hair: Color D

Crochet Hook: I

Notes: Do not join rounds or turn unless instructed otherwise. Count each round carefully and place a marker at the beginning of each round. Use fairly tight stitches for the body parts that are to be stuffed so that the stuffing will not show through the completed project.

Ch = chain
Sc = single crochet

Tc = triple crochet

ASSEMBLING THE DOLL

At this point you should have 1 Head (already stuffed, with 2 inch opening), 2 Body pieces, 2 Arms (already stuffed and the tops sewn shut) and 2 Boot/Shoes & Legs (already stuffed and the tops sewn shut).
Using a whip stitch to assemble all the parts.
Sew the shoulder seams of the 2 Body part together, leaving the neck unstitched.
Working on the inside back of the Body only, attach the Arms, thumbs pointing up. The Arms should be placed with the top of the Arms at the shoulder seam of Body.
Bring the wrong sides of the Body pieces together. Sew both side seams of the Body, leaving the bottom of Body open.
You should now have a Body with the neck at the top and the stuffed Arms attached. The bottom and neck of the Body should still be open.
To attach the Head, place the neck inside the 2 inch Head opening. Leave the neck open from Head to Body and stitch the Head onto the neck. The Head should rest close to the Body. The neck is actually used to give the Head more support so it doesn’t flop around loose.
Stuff the Head and neck FIRMLY. (You can even use some type of thick wire to stiffen the neck, just be sure it is well covered if children will be playing with it.) The fuller you stuff the Head and neck, the better.
Stuff the Body.
Attach the Legs to the bottom of the Body the same way you attached the Arms. You want the outside of the Legs to line up with the Outside of the Body.
Before closing the Body completely, make sure the Body is stuffed Firmly.



FACE
You can use anything you wish to make the features on the Face. For small children I recommend not using buttons that could be pulled off. I usually make crocheted eyes that I sew on tightly. I use either yarn or crochet cotton size 10 thread to embroider the rest of the features. I’ve given some instructions below for some of the features I’ve used.

Eyes (Make 2) Use I hook and Black
Rnd 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook. (6 sc)
For a small eye you can finish off here. Continue for larger eyes.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc: around. (12 sc)
Finish off leaving enough tail to use to attach eye to head.
Sew eyes to head in a location that is pleasing to you.

Raggedy Nose (Triangle shape) Use I hook and Red
Row 1: Ch 7, turn.
Row 2: 1 sc in second ch from hook, 1 sc in next ch, 1 hdc in next 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 tc in last chain. Ch 1, turn. (7 st)
Row 3: 1 sc in next 6 sc. 3 sc in last sc. Working in unworked loops of Row 1, 1 sc in each loop. (15 sc)
Finish off. Sew to head in a location that is pleasing to you.

HAIR

To make hair, decide how long you want the finished hair to be. Double that and add about 2 inches. (You’ll be able to trim it later. You don’t want it to be too short or it will be impossible to put on the dolls head).
Cut lots of strands of yarn the length you got. You can do this easily by cutting a cardboard box to use like making pom-poms. The more strands you cut, the fuller your head of hair will be.
You will attach 2 strand of hair at a time. Use the same method as for Rug Hooking. Fold the hair in half and pull the loop through one stitch on the head. Bring the 4 loose ends of the hair Strands through the loops. Pull tight. You will start attaching hair along the forehead (Rnd 10 of Face, front). How much hair you put on is completely up to you! Style as you desire.

Another way to attach hair is to just knot each individual piece of yarn.


Congratulations! You’ve just finished your Chiffon Doll.

I want to thank you for the time and effort you put into creating these wonderful patterns...
As a child I did not have very much to play with; however I had a very "crafty" Aunt...she made me the sewn versions of Raggedy Ann and Andy, truly beautiful dolls.
When I saw your crocheted pattern for these I decided that I was making them for my daughter...as I was starting on cause she thought they were for me...she said "Mom, I want a set only Black. I decided to start making at least Holly Hobby for her because her birthday is only in 8 days...
Thank you for making this pattern, bringing joy into a new generation of children and bringing back some wonderful memories.

Thank you for the wonderful patterns. I am curious about how much yarn I will need to create the main portion (head/body/arms/legs.

I just wanted to say that your instructions are incredibly clear. I started crocheting years ago, but I've only done straight-forward squares for blankets or scarfs. I sat down to tentatively try your pattern and had a perfect head within a couple hours! I can't wait to finish but I have wait till class is over tomorrow. *pout* Thank you so much.

Thank you for posting and leaving your pattern up! I made my first one using your pattern back in 2008 and made another in 2009. Now (2011) I'm making yet another. You can see pics here at: http://yarnoveronce.blogspot.com/2011/12/dolls.html Your pattern has blessed me and two little nieces and soon will bless one more!

Is there any way someone could tell me what I am doing wrong? On the feet where it says to work into other side of beginning chain, no matter what I do I just cannot get it to equal 18 single crochets. Frustrated in tears over here. I think I'm just starting the round in the wrong spot.

i did 6sc in my second hole from the chain marked it then did 12 and marked it i then do the 18 and mark it i follow the next part 1sc 2sc all around and get 27 instead on the 24 your pattern said would be there
am i doing something wrong or could your count be off?
