BB Dolls

BBDolls - 3This week wanted to talk about amigurumi doll’s hair making. If you ask me, it is the hardest part of finishing the doll and making her look the way we imagine. At least it is for me.

Tried so many different versions of hairs to be done on the doll, and hardly ever was satisfied with the final outcome. Those tapestry way, with wool and pulling out hair by hair; works fine I guess. Eats a lot of wool, but what you can do with it is either freaking out looking doll or to make it look “decent” is pony-tail(s) or braids.

Then there is a wig making. Sorry to say, but for that am complete idiot. Tried it several times, but each and every doll looked so sad with this helmet looking wig on.

Crocheting “discs” as I call them (small round pieces) and placing one or two on top of the head, as you can see at some of my doll photos in the gallery, worked fine. Liked the results. Making tassels to go with them or braids, and placing them on sides or top of the head….. yes, many possibilities and are easy to make, and at the end doll looks nice. Cute and “dolly”.

I wanted more out of hair! That kept me busy thinking and trying.

I am sure I didn’t invent anything new; specially to those that are in amigurumi world for quite some time, but it is new to me.

For today I made one new pattern that I called BB Dolls. Made few different hair styles so you can see the possibilities that can be done. Encourage all of you to give it a try and play with it for a while. Specially to ones that love dolls as much as I do. Hair making this way is fun! Really is! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The pattern for entire doll I tried to make simplest possible. For some problem might be making legs and body in one peace, but if so, just make two legs and body separated, counting the stitches used in the pattern.

For any questions you might have, I am here, and will be glad to help you.

So here we go with the BB Doll pattern


Sc: Single crochet

ch: Chain

St: Stitch

inv.dec: invisible decrease

Materials you will need:

2 mm crochet hook

8 ply cotton yarn in various colors

4,5 mm round, black, wooden beads for eyes

stuffing of your choice

needle for sewing up the body parts together

embroidery thread if you will want to sew on the eyelashes to the doll’s eyes

BBDolls - 6HEAD

CH 6

R1: Starting from second chain from hook, Sc 4. 3 2sc in last st. Turnย Continue your work stitching around the other side, ย Sc 4, 2sc in last st. ย  (12 sts)

R2: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next st*, rep 6 times. (18 sts)

R3: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next st*, rep 6 times. (24 sts)

R4: *Sc 3, 2 sc in next st*, rep 6 times (30 sts)

R5: *Sc 4, 2 sc in next st*, rep 6 times (36 sts)

R6-10: Sc 36

If you are using safety eyes, place them between row 10 and 11, leaving 6 stitches between them.

R11: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next st*, rep 12 times (48 sts)

R12: *Sc 7, 2 sc in next st*, rep 6 times (54 sts)

R13-R17: Sc 54

R18: *Sc 7, inv.dec 1*, rep 6 times (48 sts)

R19: *Sc 6, inv.dec 1*, rep 6 times (42 sts)

R20: *Sc 5, inv.dec 1*, rep 6 times (36 sts)

R21: *Sc 4, inv.dec 1*, rep 6 times (30 sts)

R22: *Sc 3, inv.dec 1*, rep 6 times (24 sts)

R23: *Sc 2, inv.dec 1*, rep 6 times (18 sts)

R24: *Sc 1, inv.dec 1*, rep 6 times (12 sts)

Fasten off and stuff head firmly. Stuff little by little and form so you shape the head nicely.


R1: stitch 4sc in magic ring ch1 turn around

(Do not close the ring, chain one and continue stitching backwards, as you would with the flat peace. We will be crocheting the rows here. Every row finish with the chain1, turn around, ย and continue stitching in the second stitch from the hook.)

R2: 2sc in each st (8 sts) ch1 turn around

R3: *Sc 1, 2 sc in next st*, rep 4 times. (12sts) ch1 turn around

R4: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next st*, rep 4 times (16 sts)

R5: *Sc 3, 2 sc in next st*, rep 4 times (20 sts)

R6: *Sc 4, 2 sc in next st*, rep 4 times (24 sts)

R7: *Sc 5, 2 sc in next st*, rep 4 times (28 sts)

R8-13: Sc 28

R14: *Sc 2, 2 sc in next st*, rep 8 times (36 sts)

R15: Sc 36

Ch1 and begin single crochet stitching to the side, toward the top of the head, where magic ring and first row is started.

Reaching the magic ring we will start making bangs.

Slip stitch 1 in the magic ring, chain 10, and return back slip stitching 9 at each stitch on the chain.

Slip stitch again to the magic ring, ch 10, return back slip stitching to 9 stitches on the chain, slip stitch to the magic ring, and repeat 3 more times, or until you create desired number of the bangs. (in my case there are 5).

Finishing last peace of hair, single crochet to the working side of the hair, and continue sc into each last row stitch (14 sts).

Reaching the end, tie off and leave long end for sewing the hair on the head.

Here are few samples of what you can do. Some you could see at presentations photo on the start of this post. Would have been to much if I tried to write down each and every pattern for different hair styles I’ve done; but as I said, if you will need any help, feel free to contact me and ask. Will be glad to help you.

Hair we are making in this pattern is the one shown on the first photo published here; look at the last doll in the line. One with light brown hair (yellow and blue dress).

R1: 6 Sc in magic ring (6)

R2: 2 sc in each st around (12)

R3: ย *2sc in one st, sc1* x6 (18)

R4: 18 sc

R5: Inv.dec6, sc6 (12)

R6: Inv.dec3, sc6 (9)

Stuff the bottom of the leg.

Change color of the thread and continue with R7.

R7-R16: 9 sc

Tie off and leave long end for sewing later. Stuff the leg.


R1: 6 Sc in magic ring (6)

R2: 2 sc in each st around (12)

R3: ย *2sc in one st, sc1* x6 (18)

R4: 18 sc

R5: Inv.dec6, sc6 (12)

R6: Inv.dec3, sc6 (9)

Stuff the bottom of the leg.

Change color of the thread and continue with R7.

R7-R16: 9 sc

At this point stuff the leg and bring both legs together.

R17: ch1, sc to the second last stitch on the next leg, sc7, ch1, sc to next leg, leaving one stitch free. Sc8. (18)

Pull out the yarn from the first leg you left for sewing later, through the gap between the legs. So it doesnโ€™t come to your way while crocheting. You will use this yarn to sew this gap after body is done and stuffed.

R18-25: 18 sc

R26: *Inv.dec.1, sc1* x6 (12)

R27-29: 12 sc

Tie off leaving long end for sewing the body to the head.

Stuff the body as firm as you can.

Now take the sewing needle and the yarn there is between the legs (one you left from finishing the first leg) and sew the gap nicely.


R1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)

R2-6: 6 sc

Change color

R7-R9: 6sc

Tie of and leave long end for sewing the arms to the body.


R1: 18 Sc in magic ring (18) (donโ€™t close the ring completely)

R2-R3: 18 sc

R4: *2sc in one st, sc next 2* x6 (24)

R5-R6: 24 sc

R7: *2sc in one st, sc next 3sts* x6 (30)

R8-R9: 30 sc

R10: *2sc in one st, sc next 4 sts* x6 (36)

R11: 36 sc

Change color

R12: *ch3, sc in next st* repeat all around

Tie off and hide ends.

Put the dress over the body and sew the body on the head.

Sew on the hair, and finally place and sew the arms (I find it best if you leave 6 stitches looking in front of the dress, between each arm). I also suggest to sew the arms on the dress only. Not only it is easier, but gives you space to sew and hide ends nicely.

And you own BB Doll is done.

I hope you have enjoyed making it, and the hair you have learned will open up a whole new possibilities. Experiment and try different styles. Share what you have learned and teach us something new as well.

Looking forward to see and hear you experiences in making BB Doll. Thank you for staying with me and reading this post. Thank you for following and all kind and sweet comments you always leave behind. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Your BB Dolls are so cute, thank you for sharing the pattern with us

    1. You are welcome Marje. Looking forward seeing how you will make one this time ๐Ÿ˜‰ (let me know if I made any mistakes before anyone other notice it ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thank you Marje for stopping by

  2. Very very cute. Love them all. Amazing colors, very cute. I am going to make one of these. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thank you and you are welcome! Make sure to send me photos of finished dolls!

  3. The BBs are charming. They’re perfect. I was looking for a small cute doll to make for charity. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us. I appreciate it!

    1. Thank you. I appreciate you charity work and am very happy that dolls made of this little and easy pattern will find their way to children’s hands. For such reasons I am glad I could contribute making patterns available for public use, and is giving me force and energy to continue in same manner.

  4. OMG! They are the cutest! Thank you so much for sharing. I’ll definitely make one for myself ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! So glad you like them. Prepared your pattern of the Bee Doll to make it as well (together with the Ami). Hope will make them soon. Thank you for stopping by and best of luck with your blogging and more dolls making.

      1. That’s awesome! Please do let me know if you spot any errors in the patterns. I’m pretty sure a few must have managed to crawl in (I’m so horrid at writing patterns!). But I’m really excited to see what you do with my patterns ๐Ÿ˜€ XOXO

      2. Haha…as if I will notice the mistakes. Now, as you mentioned it will go and look for some ๐Ÿ˜€ To me, writing a pattern is ten times harder than making ami….and above all… sooooo boring. But do it just for the sake of all the others that might find the finished doll cute and would like to give it a try. Same as you do! So don’t you think I make no mistakes. I do! And make more than few ๐Ÿ˜‰
        The Bee cute one will try to make this weekend, so fingers crossed ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. These are beautiful. I’m keen to have a go at amigurumi, but at the moment I’m having to remind myself of even basic crochet stitches, let alone trying to follow a pattern to create something so cute. But practise makes perfect, I might get there one day…

    1. Thank you! I encourage you to try with something small. As one biger (stuffed) and two smaller balls (flat) for example to create a nice bear head ๐Ÿ˜‰ Will not take a lot of your time and will remind you on how it feels and goes when crocheting. Thank you for comment and visiting.

  6. Love your blog!! I will loved to try make this doll! (sorry for my english;) /Monica

    1. Thank you Monica. Looking forward seeing your finished BB Dolls. WIll sure visit your blog. Thank you so much for visiting and nice comment.

  7. This is so sweet! Thank you so much for the pattern :-)โ™ฅ
    Hugs Ing

    1. You are welcome Ingrid and thank you so much for visit. Love the cover page of your blog…going to check it now ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thanks Lulika,
      Glad you like the dolls. Hope you will enjoy making them as well. Send us some photos when dolls finished. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. thank you for sharing your cute pattern

    1. Thank you Sylvie,
      Thanks for your comment and visiting the page.

  11. I love these, and Will make them sometime, my question is how big are they when finished? I have never used a 2mm hook be4. This will be new for me. Ty so much for sharing, and being so kind to offer help also.

    1. I said I will make them sometime but, they are just so so cute.I am going to start now. I will probably have questions. I don’t have 8 ply cotton, I hope reg yarn is ok.

      1. Hey Jeannie,
        I am not sure what reg yarn is. But you can make dolls out of any yarn, as long as you match the thread with the hook to get tighter gauge. As mentioned many times, I tried to keep pattern very very easy. Even the color changes tried to do easy way, increases, decreases, stitches, continuous rounds so no connections each row…so really everyone can do it. Fo some, connecting legs and continuing making body might be little bit difficult, but even that can be simplified. So you start with the rag yarn you have ๐Ÿ™‚ Do not hesitate to ask for any help while working on the doll. will be glad I can help. Rally looking forward seeing your doll finished! Specially knowing you didn’t crochet for some time now. Happy amigurumi making dear! ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. These dolls are 15 cm/6” tall. Will make few photos to show you how they fit in the hand. Really cute for holding as well. ๐Ÿ™‚
      But if you never used 2mm hook before, try making first doll the way you used to make amigurumi or crochet, just to try out the pattern, then the second doll make this way. proportions of the doll will stay the same. It will only get little bigger with thicker yarn and bigger hook. Let me know how it goes! For any help or assistance, I am here.

  12. Thanks for sharing you BB dolls pattern and all of your insights on doing the hair. These are so cute!

    1. Thank you Jenny,
      Glad you like the the dolls. Happy if I could help and inspire regarding hair making.

  13. Hi Vanja,
    it is nice to meet a fellow amigurumist. Your amis are lovely and their hair is brilliant. I love the ringlets most of all but all the hair is wonderful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. hi, and thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes ringlets ended up great! To be honest, making that hair piece I ran out of brown yarn, so finished it with beige ๐Ÿ˜€ That is why it ended up two color, as the highlights were done on purpose. So the idea of making it look “wild” was not mine! Just happened by accident. Hope will inspire many to try wild multicolored hair styles such as this one ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I am definitely going to make a couple of these for my daughter! Thank you so much for the pattern! I can’t wait to get started!

    1. Thank you Becki!
      I am sure your daughter will love them. ๐Ÿ™‚ let us know the results.

  15. Gracias por ser tan generosa con los patrones son sencillos pero tiernos ademas agradezco muchรญsimo la idea de enseรฑar nos distintas maneras de hacer el cabello, voy a intentar lo. Un abrazo desde Cataluรฑa, Espaรฑa

    1. Usted es bienvenido Teresa,
      Tengo el agrado de compartir lo que se con todos. Gracias por las hermosas palabras.

  16. Love them! They are so kawaii ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Maz,
      Thank you for finding me here:) and leaving this nice and kind comment. You work is great and wish you the best of luck.

  17. These guys are absolutely adorable. Thank you for sharing

    1. Thank you Debra so much for stopping by and liking the dolls ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. hi,Thanks for sharing
    I made a doll because they “r very cute but I don”t understand row 5/6 in making the dress

    1. Hi Liduin, Thanks for trying out making the doll. Went to check on row 5-6, and must say was my mistake when writing it here. Instead of 24, was written s4. Therefor, for those two rows, you just have to repeat 24 stitches all the way around. I have corrected the mistake in the pattern immediately, so should be fine from now on. If you will encounter any other mistakes, please let me know.
      Once again sorry for mistake, and thank you for making the doll.

  19. Thank you for your quick answer
    I thougt so and did it so
    I did not see any other difficulties.

  20. They are so cute.
    Love how you did all the hair styles.
    Thanks for sharing the pattern.


    1. Gracias Isabella, para venir aqui! No puedo esperar que me mande les fotos ๐Ÿ™‚
      Muchas gracias

  22. I must give these a try when I’ve finished the Snowdog I’m working on (he’s knitted and I would much rather be crocheting)

    1. Wishing you luck with the Snowdog, and looking forward hearing on how the work on dolls went. Thank you for visit Dawn ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. These are far too adorable! I’m making a doll at the moment, and the hardest part is choosing her hair!!

    1. thank you Sarah!
      Hope by now you have chosen witch hair to make, or even better, that the doll is complete ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. So, I couldn’t wait and I spent yesterday crocheting one of the dolls ๐Ÿ˜› I used ordinary knitting wool with a 2mm hook but she came out fine.

    I just have to sew the head and arms to the body and she will be ready for her photo call! I did sew the head on but it was wobbly and so I took it off again. Should it wobble? If not, do you have any tips on how to attach it?

    Very easy pattern and I can’t wait to make another.

    1. Hi Dawn, Glad you are happy with your doll, and thanks for trying one out.
      Regarding the head and attaching it to the body.
      After you stuffed the both parts well, the head and the body and start sewing them (there should be nice joint because you have 12 stitches on both ends), after you sewed up the half, add more stuffing to both parts. Push it gently with closed tip of the scissors (or whatever else you are using for this). Just push it in, because once you finish and squeeze the parts the stuffing will fill that gap in between head and body and it will not be wobble as you said. After you added little bit more of stuffing, continue sewing. If you will find it little bit hard to sew, because the stuffing is coming out, than you are doing it right ๐Ÿ™‚
      It is worth a little trouble and more work. Just take your time and it will turn out the ay you want it. Hope this helped you a little.
      Let me know how it goes! Thank you

  25. Hello, love doing this doll, but I donยดt understand the yellow (blue dress) and red hair (Green dress), can you explain this two hairs to me. Thank you very much

    1. Hello Kharla,
      Here is what you will do to make red hair:
      You will make the hair base following instructions. Make it that long so it reaches the half of the head. Make as many bands as you wish, finish the work as you would with the given pattern, tie off leaving long end for sewing the hair. For the braids; cut the yarn in strings (pieces you will use to braid). Make them double as long as you want braids to be. Then piece by pice of those cut strings you hook on the stitches in the last row. I used only 9 stitches from each side. At red hair doll, braids were too long, so I folded them inside the hair and made the bows that I sewed up later. I hope this helped you a little. Sorry because of my english!
      For the blonde girl, I am not sure witch one you were indicating at. There are two and non is in blue dress ๐Ÿ™‚
      Will try to give you tips for both.
      Turquoise dress one:
      Same hair as in the pattern, last row or additional row was made as the last row on the dress, so it should be pretty easy to understand.
      Purple dress one:
      Shorter hair than in the pattern, but bangs are long as hair is and then instead of sewing them in front of the face, I just put them aside and sewed them making them look as hair pin is on.
      If you will need any further help, let me know. Will be glad to help ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. tHANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INSTRUCTIONS.. Iยดm so glad you answer me. Iยดll try this steps know Iยดm going to do all you bb dolls

  26. This is my first attempt at following a pattern. I have only ever made 2 other amigurumi before and both were my own design. I was starting with the head and have made a mess of it. In the first few steps am I working in a circle or am I making a flat piece? They look so cute I can’t wait to make them for my daughters

    1. The step I’m stuck on is in r1 where it says to “turn and sc4, 2sc in last st. (12) it seems like I’m making a rectangle not a circle?

      1. Hi! ๐Ÿ™‚
        Would like to help, but am not sure where you’re stuck. Is it hair piece? Let me know so can make things more clear for you,
        Thank you

      2. Hi, Amanda. I just finished one of those dolls. I also got a bit confused at the start as most doll patterns start with a circle. The secret to the face shape is the fact that you start with an oval, more or less. I’m not sure if this is right but it came out looking as it should. I did the sc4 and then 3 sc in the last st. Where the pattern says turn, I didn’t turn back on myself but just worked my way round the other side – a bit like when making a baby bootie. Here is a link to my finished doll.

      3. Yes, You are right Dawn. It is my fault and bad english explanation, so I am sorry for that. It is not that you turn backwards, but continue to work around.
        Will make correction on the pattern. Thank you!

      4. Awww she came out cute! Yeah I skipped the turn too and it seems to be ok. Now I’m working on hair! Can’t wait to see how she turns out!

    2. Hi Amanda!
      As you will start making the head, you will be working in continuous rounds. You mark start of each row, but only so you can count the rows easier. In first several rows, or as long as you will be increasing in each one, the piece will look flat, so don’t worry about that. Once you will start repeating the same number of stitches for several rounds, it will start to curl and take shape of a ball.
      Hope this helped. If you will need further help, just let me know. Will help you all the way.

      1. It was for the head. In r1 it said something about turning. But then I tried it on the round and just finished the head! Yay. Now on to the hair (gulp!) how did you get the spiral curls in the picture? Is that the style the hair is for?

      2. Glad you made it making the head! ๐Ÿ˜€
        As for curly hair, or spirals, make the hair base following the pattern. Make 5-6 rows that way. Then in each stitch for the following row, make a chain for desired length of the hair you want it to be. When returning back (on the same chain) in each stitch make two SC (for thinner curls, or HDC for bigger, wider curls). Repeat the same for each stitch all the way.
        Hope this helped! ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Let me know how it goes!

  27. are beautiful.
    I’m making one that looks like me. Can I translate your pattern in my blog and mention your blog? Excuse my englise I use google translate.
    Could you do a tutorial for the hair? I Have denied
    See you soon

    1. Ciao!
      Certo che poi tradure e usare la mustra (pattern) ๐Ÿ˜‰ on tuoi blog! Mi fa piachere contribure a questo modo. Posso farti le instrucioni per i capelli; scriti e mandarte li via e-mail. Va bene?
      Credo che e moeglio se tu ti mi scrivi in italiano (lo capisco bene scrito) e io ti rispondo in inglese (perche, credo che mi sono dimenticata scrivere italiano) ๐Ÿ˜€ Cosi ci capiamo meglio!
      In ogni caso, ci rimaniamo in contato! Per qualsiasi cosa in regardo della mustra, scrivi, chiedi….sono qua!
      scusa per mi italiano, non ho usato google translate peroooo….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. il tuo italiano รจ perfetto e lo capisco bene. la mia mail รจ ti sarei grata per le istruzioni dei capelli. Ho finito proprio ora la mia infermiera brujita perchรจ proprio come me รจ un infermiera colpita dal colpo della strega…sono a letto in convalescenza ๐Ÿ™‚ Come prima prova mi ritengo soddisfatta ma posso fare meglio anche se vuoi darmi dei consigli. La posterรฒ stasera sul blog. Grazie ancora un abbraccio

  28. I finally did it! I have made my first doll! She is cute but her head seems bigger than the one in the picture. (I’m thinking I added a few rows and didn’t notice) my older daughter loves it. Now to start on the one for the younger daughter. Thanks for this adorable pattern!

    1. I’ve just started another! I can’t resist. The first one is always the hardest and the head on my second is slightly smaller than the first and it looks better for it. I’m also planning on making the duckling – I bought the wool yesterday. Can’t wait to get started. I’d like to see your doll if you could link to it when you get the chance.

      1. Great work Dawn! Congratulations ๐Ÿ™‚ Send me the photo of this new one as well!
        Tel me what doll would you like me to send you the link or photos? Will e glad to do it.
        Talk to you soon.

    2. Hi Amanda,
      Glad you finished the doll. Regarding the head. Thought a little about it. I crochet very tough, then making it all in cotton doesn’t stretch the way wool would and am sure the outcome is different.
      Here is what you should try and see if this will work better (for the head)
      Start as you would. And work till R13.
      R13-R16 sc54 sts
      R17 dec1, sc7 x6 (48 sts)
      R18 sc48 sts
      R19 dec1, sc4 x8 (40 sts)
      R20 dec1, sc2 x10 (30 sts)
      R21 dec1 sc1 x10 (20 sts)
      R22 dec8, st4 (12 sts)
      This should give you better shape. Try it on the second doll and tell me how it works. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. So I have just finished the second dolly with the new head pattern you suggested. She came out great! I also gave this one curly hair and shoe laces. My younger daughter is in love with her. I added a pic of her on Pinterest so you can see her! Thanks for all your help!

      2. Hi Amanda!
        You really made my day. ๐Ÿ˜€
        Can’t wait to see this doll!
        You are very welcome! I am glad I could help.

  29. I added a pic of the dolly I made on Pinterest. I’m not sure how to add the link here though.
    She is the same colors as the black haired dolly with the pink dress. I made the dress longer and added a flower and belt to the dress. She also talked me into changing the face a little, so “jasmine” has blue eyes and a pink mouth. I’m making 2 more. One for my other daughter and one for a friends daughter. I saw your suggestion for a different head pattern. I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for all your help!

    1. Ok dolly number 3 is here! Just love this pattern. This one is for the daughter of a friend of ours. I did the flower in the hair again but mine looks more like a star. How did you do the flower for your pink dolly?

      1. Hello dear Amanda!
        You are making these dolls as a machine ๐Ÿ˜€
        Had to take a look at the flower to remember how I made it! To be honest, didn’t like the way it turned out. The petals are not visible the way I wanted them.
        Made 5sc in magic ring
        R2 started with sl st, then ch2, sc1, ch2, sl st to next stitch and repeated this for all five stitches.
        Try it and see how it looks. Like I said didn’t like it. Find better one with dc instead of sc (in the middle of the petal). As one we did for Karla Doll.
        Let me know witch one you did and how you like it.

    1. Hi Colleen,
      There is no .pdf for this pattern yet. It is only usable/readable as post on the blog. Still have to do the .pdf link.
      Sorry for the inconvenience.

  33. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜‰

  34. So adorable! And I love all the different hair styles you have designed . . . those seem to be the hardest part when it comes to crocheting dolls. Thank you.

    1. Thank you Cj,
      When it comes to making hair, it is the fun part making the doll. Giving her this final touch. And it is not hard at all. I like to simplify things, so even the hair is made this way. If you will ever try making hair this way, you will se it is fun and simple to do. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  35. I’m looking for the right thread/yarn to use. What did you use? I’m having a hard time finding in in stores or online. where did you get yours?

    1. Hello Kristine,
      I am using cotton thread/yarn. Local, Croatian, brand.
      Try to us the thread that on the package says is suitable for crochet hook 3 -3 1/2, cotton one. Or that holds 250m in 100g.
      This is what I use, together with 2,0 mm crochet hook.
      I find this best for all of my work. Dolls are small to medium size this way. Hold the structure I want them to have and because of the cotton are giving this soft and silky but yet firm and compact touch.
      Hope this helped you.

      1. Thanks so much! I passed your link on at a local yarn shop, they all think they’re adorable. I’d like to make the curly hair but I’m not sure how to do it. Can you give me an idea? Thanks so much. I’ll send a picture when I get it done. โ™ฅ

      2. Hi Kristine,
        Hope you will find the right yarn for the dolls!
        As for ringlets, let’s see…..start making hair as written in the pattern, and work it for about 4-5 rows…check it on the head to see if you like this base, or if fits what you are looking for. When you are satisfied with the base, next row start with chain instead of stitch. Make the chain as long as you want the hair to be. On this one you will really need to experiment a little. If you want ringlets to be thinner, after your chain will be desired length, on your way back you’ll be stitching 2sc in one st. You can go with 3sc in one st as well. (that will give you even curlier ringlet). For wider, bigger ones instead of using single crochet, use double crochet and again 2 or 3 stitches in one stitch. Repeat the same for every stitch in the base row.
        Hope this will help you! Good Luck

  45. Thank you for sharing these. They are super adorable. I plan on makin some for my nieces they love dolls. Can items made from this pattern be sold I know I will be asked many times since these are so adorable.

    1. You are welcome Roby,
      and thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
      Regarding the sale of finished dolls, yes, you can sell them. Once you make them with your own hands they are yours and you are free to do whatever you want with them. It is pattern that is copyrighted, not finished product.

      1. That is wonderful. These dolls will be my next project I can’t wait to start. ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. i just made 2 of them !!!! i love them thank u so much for sharing your awesome pattern and technique

  47. I just added my 4th baby. She is the last for a little while. I want to make one with embroidery floss but I need to buy a smaller hook. I put all 4 together for a “sisters” picture. I love how they came out! Thank you for this awesome pattern. It was my inspiration. I learned so much by making these dollies

    1. Amanda, I would love to see your dollies. Could you give me your Pinterest name so that I can find you?

      1. Dear Dawn,
        You can find the photos of Amanda’s dolls, as well as all others (I was informed where to find) on AmigurumiBB board on Pinterest. Your Lucy is there as well! ๐Ÿ˜€

    2. Dear Amanda!
      Thank you! I have already added the photo to Pinterest board. Love this one, with pony tails so much! All four make really nice photo ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thank you for letting me see all of them.

  48. Thank you for your pattern. When I followed your head pattern, her head became huge. I unravelled my work and made a smaller head. Is it correct that it has to be such a big head? I don’t see that it is in your pictures off the dolls. I cannot add a picture of my creation here, but it is on Ravelry projects. My name there is Patisin.

    1. Dear Patricia,
      Sorry about your head issue. As discussed in the mail, am sure your next one will be the way you want it. Looking forward hearing all about it.

  49. Hi Vanja, I am smitten with these little BB dolls, they are soooo adorable. I am using crochet cotton I’ve had for more than twenty years. I am on my second one already. They are for my twin grand daughters and other members of the family want one too…… Just goes so show how adorable they are. I have been using a light beige colour for the head because that all I had but I am running out and want to buy some more yarn and want to buy the colour you used for the head but I can’t seem to find the right colour. Could you please tell me the colour you used for the head please. My BB dolls come out 7in/18cm with the yarn I am using at the moment. So cute.

    1. Dear Dagmar,
      Makes me happy to hear you enjoy making BB Dolls. ๐Ÿ™‚ Regarding the color I mostly use and look for is very light peach. For BB Dolls I used local Croatian brand called Helena (cotton yarn for knitting) and exact number of this color is 3091. I know this information wont help you much, not only because you would have trouble finding the yarn, but think it is lighter/thinner from what you have been using for your dolls. The other brand I use is Pattons 100% cotton DK, but so far didn’t find the right color for the heads. Best advice I can give you in order to match the most similar color as BB Dolls, is to look for very light peach in weight that will match your work and yarns you are working with at the moment. Please, let me know if you found the yarn you like and how it goes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. Hi Vanja, thanks for your info, already left a message about it but it didn’t show. I’ve found a suitable cotton. It’s called DMC Petra 3 and come in lots of colours. Also got the light peach for the head and its thinner and very easy and pleasant to work with. It can also be washed in the washing machine at 60 degrees which is a good thing when it gets grubby. Have also done the elephant. Just love all your stuff. Very addictive making all these wonderful amigurumis. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Dagmar,
      Glad you could find the suitable cotton. Didn’t work with DMC but as you describe, must be very pleasant to work with. Will give it a try myself ๐Ÿ˜‰
      What hook size are you using with it?
      Oh, and if possible, send me the photos! Love to see and share the photos of my friend’s work among friends ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hi Vanja, I am using hook size 2mm and the doll with the DMC cotton is 15cm tall instead of 18cm with my old yarn. How do I send a photo? I am not on twitter.

      2. Sent me the photos directly to Gmail or use the contact page here!
