Little Fairy Doll – Free Crochet Pattern

This is my written free crochet pattern for a little fairy doll.

One of my dear followers asked me a while back, if I could make a tutorial on how to crochet a hair bun like Tinkerbell’s, as well as fairy wings. I thought this is a great opportunity to design a new little fairy doll!

You can find the written pattern for the doll’s body, hair and wing below. Next week I will add instructions on how to make her a fairy skirt, along with the accompanying video tutorial.

This pattern is written in US crochet terms. You can convert it to British terms using my conversion chart.
