Inspired by a memory of a fabric doll I had as a child and my daughter’s love of Anna and Elsa, this pattern is the basic instruction for both dolls’ physical structure. The dolls change from their coronation attire to their respective winter attire, by flipping their skirts over their heads.

NOTE: This is the first pattern I’ve written up for other people to use, so if you have any suggestions to improve it, please let me know.

Gauge: There really isn’t one. I just crochet as tight as I can, like CRAZY tight.

Yarn (this is what I used because it’s what I had):
The skin: I used Vanna’s choice in “Fisherman”
The dresses: Caron’s simply soft in Robin’s egg, Dark Sage.
Anna’s blue skirt: Some acrylic yarn I picked up at Daiso.
Anna’s coronation skirt: I’m not sure, as I took apart the brim of a hat I’d made ages ago to get there yarn.
Anna’s hair is Caron’s simply soft, but I can’t find the label.

Honestly you can use whatever yarn, just try to get similar weights of yarn. The hair you can get a thinner weight (like fingering).

Stitches used:
single crochet (sc)
half double crochet (hdc)
single crochet 2 together (sc2tog): draw up yarn in 2 stitches and sc together

Other supplies:
6 mm black safety eyes.
stitch marker (or some way to mark the stitch)
yarn needle (the kind that’s sharp, but the eye is big enough to get yarn through)
