| | | | |

Finally.. all these years of crafting with my kids has paid off! My now 13yrs old has started writing crochet patterns for us, under the Craft_Alotl alias! Woohoo. How lovely. Today, she shares the Amigurmu doll crochet pattern for her Ellie Crochet Doll! It is a free crochet pattern for Red Ted Art readers for now! So make the most of it.

Ellie Doll Crochet Pattern

This doll is a super sweet doll, for a slightly more advance beginner to intermidiary crocheter. A great doll pattern to flex your crochet skills and make some adorable.

This little Ellie Crochet Doll would make a lovely gift too! Our little niece was quite taken by Ellie, I am sure you know a little girl or boy, who would enjoy this too! This Ellie Doll comes with one outfit and hair do, but we have more Ellie friends with different outfits coming soon. Enjoy this free crochet doll pattern!
