Sierra the Summer Doll is a member of Sweet Softies’ Darling Dolls Collection. This pattern provides instructions for crocheting Sierra, a cheery English girl wearing a sage green dress with a school girl collar, a sun hat, and stockings. Her pet puppy dog, Peanut, is always accompanying her wherever she goes, and loves sitting inside Sierra’s basket. This pattern is easily customized using different yarn colors and added embellishments (e.g., buttons, lace, appliques). Helpful photo references and a detailed hair tutorial are provided in this written pattern.

Add this adorable, 20th century English belle to your multicultural collection of amigurumi crochet female dolls from around the world!
