This doll is crocheted with a 2.0mm hook with the suggested yarn. 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.

Not important for this pattern.

Needle for weaving ends, scissors. Fibrefill. Stitchmarker.
