I loved making this crochet doll pattern. I really like that you can change her clothes. The clothes work up really fast and that is my favorite thing about it.
I made Sophie’s Universe and it took 4 years. But I can make a dress in a day or two.

Sew the crotch closed and bend one end of the wire. Insert the bent wire into one of the legs.
A couple inches from the top of the neck, bend the wire in half. Make sure that the bend doesn’t have a gap. You want the bend to be as small as possible.
Cut the wire a little bit longer than the second leg, bend the end and insert the wire into the second leg.
With a new piece of wire, bend the end and insert it into one arm.
Measure the wire and cut it just a little bit longer than the second arm. Bend the end and insert it into the second arm.

Attach the eyes to the head between rows 11 and 12 with them being 4 st apart.
With one strand of embroidery thread, make the eyelashes and eyebrows.
Color on a piece of paper with the pastel pencil. Use a q-tip to pick up the dust and add color to the cheeks.
Sew the head to the body by first inserting the extra wire through the beginning magic ring. Then sew on the scalp part of the way, stuff the head, then finish sewing up the rest of the way.
Cut hair strands 14 in long.
Attach the hair by first sticking your crochet hook through one st of the scalp.
Hook a strand of hair in the middle of the strand
Pull the hair through the loop.
Then tighten the knot.
You will be attaching hair in every st around the outside of the scalp and in every other st on the inside of the scalp. After you have attached the hair, make a part and attach more hair where it is needed.
And you’re done making your crochet doll!
