Lienemien - Sleeping Dolls Pattern



When I added sleeping dolls photo to my facebook page and shared it, I was so surprised and happy to get a lot of interest in them.. It has been one of my favorite patterns. It is easy and quick to make. I also dont like sewing arms, legs and head in amigurumi and this pattern is just my type, it is made in one piece. Thank you very much to Sil`s corner for this lovely, cute dolls. Many people asked for the pattern, I shared the original link from Sil`s corner but unfortunately the pattern is not in English. For myself I used google translator to make it, but here is the English version of it.

You will need;

- two colors of yarn and a tan color. You can choose any yarn of your stash. Depending in the yarn and hook you use, your doll size might be smaller or bigger. (I use yarn art jeans with 2.5mm crochet hook)
- crochet hook, always use one size smaller than the recommended hook so your stuffing wont escape between the stitches
- toy stuffing
- rattle insert (optional)
- 7mm safety eyes. (I embroidery the eyes)
The doll is made in a continuous spiral, without joining rounds or turning. You will need  stitch marker or a piece of yarn to mark the beginning of a round. Move the marker up when you complete the round.

sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
dec : decrease (single crochet two stitches together)
inc : increase (make 2 single crochet in the same stitch)
