The Princess Maeve Pattern provides instructions for crocheting this beautiful and fair Irish lady. Princess Maeve dons a lovely, two-layer gown and chooses to wear a crown of fresh flowers over a crown of gold and gems. She’s a free-spirited soul who adores signing, dancing, and picking flowers in the woodland forest bordering her castle home.

This two-part 25-page pattern includes complete written instructions with accompanying photo references for crocheting this doll from start to finish. The pattern includes a hair tutorial and anime-style eyes tutorial.

Please note: Most parts in this doll pattern are written with the joining method, where each row begins with a “ch 1” and ends with a join by a “sl st to the first st”. This keeps the rows even and leveled. However, if you’d prefer to work in continuous rounds for a seamless doll, you may do so as well by simply ignoring the “ch 1” and “join” instructions for the head/body, hair cap, arms, and legs sections. You must use the joining method for the dress skirt.
