Here is a Pinterest board I put together with very cute crocheted dolls. And the trick is that most of them have a free pattern!
This is the third doll I made using the same pattern. This time I made her a t-shirt and a jacket that can be taken of. Well, here is The Netherlands the weather is quite unpredictable. A jacket and a scarf is a must in all situations :P
This is the first doll project I ever made. I did not ever make a doll before and I was also not very proficient in crocheting. So I looked on the internet for some video tutorials. And I found this one on how to crochet a Coraline doll bij Sharon Ojala. Of course what I have made and what she made is not really the same :P But this is the beauty of crochet: you can use a tutorial as inspiration and adapt it to your own vision and ideas.
