This is the first time I upload a pattern to crochet a doll, I don’t know why I have waited that long but never late than never! I promised myself that I would offer more free patterns this year and this cute little doll is one of them.
I called her Blondine, she is very cute and about 10 inch tall. I crocheted it with a 2.75mm hook and Caron Simply Soft yarn. She is relatively easy to make but I wouldn’t recommend it for an absolute beginner. As long as you know how to read a pattern and know how to do basic stitches you will have no problem making this doll.
She can sit or stand. You can pick any color you want, I just liked the vintage pink on her. Also, you can choose felt or embroidery thread to make the eyes if you want to crochet this doll for a small child.
You can download the pattern below. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments. Happy crocheting!
It has been a while since I wrote a crochet pattern because I have been so busy with other Amigurumi projects that I did not have the time for any patterns until now. Last week I finally had the chance to work on a Koala tutorial that I uploaded on ETSY a few hours ago. I came up with this pattern because I love these animals, they are so cute and lazy.
This Koala bear is very easy to make, the PDF file comes with detailed instructions and lots of pictures. I try to make my tutorials as easy as possible because I want people to enjoy crocheting items without any complications.
He’s about 7 inches tall and crocheted with a 2.75mm crochet hook. For more details and if you are interested in this pattern, it is available on my ETSY Shop – The Lofty Loop.
I intend to add more patterns to my ETSY shop this year, and I am looking for ideas. If you have any suggestions let me know in the comments. Happy crocheting!
I just finished working on my latest crochet pattern which is now available on Etsy: a cute bunny rabbit and his favorite snack, a fresh and yummy carrot from the garden. He was inspired by another pattern I made a few months ago to crochet a squirrel holding an acorn. I am very happy with the result, It turned out exactly how I pictured it! Maybe I should turn it into a series of animals holding their favorite snacks!
He’s about 11 inches tall and crocheted with a 2.75mm hook. I used Red Heart Super Saver for the bunny and Caron Simply Soft for the carrot but using these specific brands is not mandatory. I picked an off-white color to crochet the bunny because pure white gets dirty too quickly.
This little bunny is easy to make. I like to keep my patterns simple by using basic stitches and techniques such as single crochet, increase and decrease. I also use a lot of descriptive photos to give help with visuals.
I Think I am going to take this bunny for a stroll in the garden and see if he will start hopping around or make friends with the real rabbits.

I love squirrels, I think they are really cute and funny. Not long ago I had an encounter with a poor little critter that was desperately trying to escape the trap a friend of mine had set behind her house. I felt so bad for it that I opened the trap to set if free, unbeknownst to my friend who wouldn’t have been happy if she had known what I had done. That little episode gave me the idea to work on a squirrel crochet pattern for my next ETSY project.
That little squirrel was really a source of inspiration, I really enjoyed making this amigurumi which turned out to be very easy to create. The squirrel is about 9 inches tall and crocheted with a 2.75mm hook.
I think it turned out really cute. Some of the parts are glued together like the feet to the thighs and the tail to the back. I crocheted a little acorn which I glued to the hands. I was going to use velcro which would have allowed removing the acorn I but decided at the last moment to make it permanent.
I love my little squirrel, and I am really happy with the pattern. If you are interested in this project, the crochet tutorial is available on ETSY.
Now that I am finished I wonder if my next crochet inspiration will come from another animal rescue! Recently, I did save a bird from my being shred to pieces from my cat so maybe I could do that next?
It’s January and after a break during the holidays I am back in full swing. I just finished my first crochet project of the year, a little panda bear! He’s cute and tiny, only 5 inches tall. I decided to make two versions of it; one with regular yarn, and the other with wool to make him look furry. I haven’t crocheted that one yet, I need to go to the craft store to get the supplies. In the mean time, here is my first version:
I used a 2.75mm hook, and Caron Simply Soft in black and white. I like to use the same brand of yarn when I need different colors because threads have a different thickness from one brand to another. The patches are made with felt, and I used safety plastic buttons for the eyes.
He looks so cozy with his little scarf! This project was easy to make, it only requires basic skills such as single crochet, increase and decrease. It took me a day to make it (but I will admit that I work fast). I was tempted to put a safety nose instead of embroidery but the ones I have in stock are too big, so I will reserve that for the second version of this panda I am going to make soon.
The question now is where this panda is going to go? I am thinking about donating some of my plushes for children in need this year, I just need to find the right place. If you know any organizations let me know, and I will look them up.
In the mean time, happy crocheting!
