Dressup Doll Malu is made as a friend to Dressup Dolls Elsa, Malaika and Killian and measures about 25 cm’s when I crochet her with a 2.0mm hook. When you go up a hooksize, she might be bigger, but proportions remain intact. This means gauge isn’t important.

The pattern for Malu is currently available in Dutch and US English

Amigurumi doll Malu is a crocheted doll with a removable skirt and necklace. She is made seamless, so no seaming parts afterwards. She can switch clothing with her friend Elsa and fits all of the extra outfits made for Elsa aswell. The name Malu is Hawaiian and means Protection and peace.

This doll is crocheted with a 2.0mm hook and the suggested yarn above. It’s important to crochet tight enough, since you don’t want the fibrefill to show. Also don’t crochet to tightly it’ll be a strain on your wrists. If you crochet loosely, please go down a size. If you crochet tightly go up a size. The proportions of this girl stay intact.

In single crochet: 15 sc x 15 rows measures 5x5 cm, using Scheepjes Softfun and a 2.0mm hook.
Gauge, however is not important for this pattern. Different hooks and different yarn give you a different size for your doll, but the proportions stay intact.
