Mami Kokeshi Doll - Amigurumi Pattern


I am making some small gifts for my etsy shop and started with making keychains. I wanted to make kokeshi doll but I dont like sewing the small pieces in amigurumi. So I made my own pattern with less sewing parts :) 
The gauge is not important with the pattern, depending on your yarn-hook choice the size of kokeshi doll will change. I used 2.00mm crochet hook and fingering weight yarn and she is 12cm long.

The pattern is made in a continuous spiral, without joining rounds or turning. Use a stitch marker or a piece of yarn to mark the beginning of a round. Move the marker up when you complete the round.
  • St : stitch
  • Sc : single crochet
  • Dc: double crochet
  • dec : decrease – crochet two stitches together
  • inc : increase – make two single crochet stitches in the same stitch.

You can also decorate using buttons and beads. Imagination has no limits. :)
