Fairy Amigurumi Doll – Free Crochet Pattern

Falbala and Farina spread magic and fairy dust across your home. Their natural habitat is the enchanted forest but they will surely feel at home with you. And who knows? Maybe you will bring the enchanted forest to them with some of my future crochet projects?

(They are approx. 12cm / 4 3/4″ tall)

I decided to share my patterns in UK as well as US terminology from now on, so none of my lovely readers will have to convert the pattern on their own. The following is the pattern in British terms and if you scroll further down, you will find the US terms.

You can purchase the printable ad-free version of this pattern for a small fee in US and British/Australian terms here.

Instructions

Crochet the head in C1

Before you start with the head, cut two 30cm/12” strings of C1. You will need these later for the ears.

Rd 1: dc 6 in magic ring (6)

Rd 2: 2dc 6 (12)

Rd 3: [dc 1, 2dc 1]*6 (18)

Rd 4: [dc 2, 2dc 1]*6 (24)

Rd 5: [dc 3, 2dc 1]*6 (30)

Rd 6 to 9: Dc 30

Rd 10: [dc 3, inv dec 1]*6 (24)

Rd 11: [dc 2, inv dec 1]*6 (18)

Rd 12: [dc 1, inv dec 1]*6 (12)

Attach the eyes

Secure your st with a stitch marker. The stitch marker marks the back of the head. Decide where to place the eyes (somewhere on the opposite of the stitch marker).

I left 4 sts between the eyes. Before you secure the safety eyes, remove them again and embroider the eyelashes. I used sewing thread for them, but if you prefer bolder eyelashes you could use embroidery thread.

Once you embroidered the lashes on one side, you can stitch through to the other eye from inside the head. After embroidering the lashes on the other side, tie the ends together inside the head.

Now you can insert the safety eyes and secure them.

Make the ears in C1

Embroider the ears by making 5 sl sts on each side. Pull one of the two strings of yarn, that you put aside earlier for the ears, out from inside the head, then insert your hook in the next gap (between sts) and pull another loop from the insid eof the head. Now you have 2 loops on your hook to make a sl st.

Sl st 3 upwards/silghtly backwards, then sl st 2 back down to where you started, shaping a pointy ear.

Attach the hair

Cut 82 x 25cm/10” strings in C2 for the hair.

Attach two rounds of hair around the hairline, and 4 additional rows in the lower back of the head for a half up hairstyle. I usually don’t style the hair until the end when the body is completed.

You can watch how I attached the hair in my video tutorial below. In this tutorial I attach hair to Farina (Falballa’s fairy sister) but I explain how to attach hair for Falballa’s hairstyle as well.

Once you attached the hair, you can fill the head with a generous amount of toy stuffing.

If you like you can now weave the craft wire into the wings, going all around in a loop. This will help shaping the wings the way you like and makes them hold their shape. The wire will peak out but I don’t mind a bit of gold sparkle in her wings.
