    Pattern

    Amigurumi Fairy Tales

    Needles & Hooks

    • Crochet Hook 2.00mm (US 0)

    Accessories

    • Stitch Markers
    • Tapestry Needle
    • Stuffing
    Other : eyes

    Measurements

    Notes: Yarn: 5 ply cotton
    Hook: 2 mm
    Finished size: 18 cm (from bun to feet)

    Changes
    I staggered my increase and decrease stitches so that there is no distinctive line were these happen and no hexagon look to body parts. I also used the invisible decrease stitch. I like to use a much smaller hook than recommended for the yarn size as I like to stuff my creations firmly and not have any stuffing showing. I think it gives a much nicer finish.

    I added a little flower to the head band.

    Problem areas
    Rnd 26 of the body needs to be done in the colour of the dress (same colour as rnd 27). If you don’t change it you will still see a little bit of white when you attache the skirt. I had to hand sew some stitching on to hide it.
