Cupid Doll – Free Crochet Pattern

This free crochet pattern is great because it’s so versatile! You can use it to make a little Cupid doll but also to make a tiny baby or toddler or a small child.

I got the idea from Maria who’s a subscriber of my YouTube channel. She asked me if I could make a little boy doll, that looks like her grandson Ethan. Since it’s the month of love, I thought I’d make a little Cupid that can be modified and turned into a little boy or girl.

You can read the written pattern here on my blog or watch the video tutorial and crochet along with me.

I would love to see your little amigurumi doll! Share your creation on Instagram and tag me @stellasyarnuniverse for the monthly chance to win a pdf pattern of your choice from my Etsy shop! Winners are announced on my Instagram page @stellasyarnuniverse every 1st of the month!

You are now at the tip of the wing, sc 3 across half of the bottom of the wing to create the lower feathers of the wing’s tip. Fasten off.

Weave in the snuggly yarn ends and use the cotton yarn ends to attach the wings to the middle of the back with a few stitches. Now you can slightly bend the wings into shape.

Cupid’s bow and arrow

Shape and crochet the bow in C2

Cut a 7.5cm / 3″ piece of fairly thick craft wire (the one I used is 0.8mm/0.03” thick).
If you have rounded pliers, you can shape a little loop on one end of the wire. If you don’t have pliers, you can shape the wire by wrapping it around a bamboo skewer, or similar.

Ch 17 in C2
Sc in next 16 ch (starting from 2nd from hook) around the wire, so it is hidden inside the row of sc.

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Shape another loop at the other end of the wire, right behind the row of sc. Bend the wire into the shape of a bow.
Cut a 7.5cm / 3″ piece of thin craft wire for the bow string. Double-check the distance between Cupid’s hands to measure the appropriate length of the bow string. Attach the bow string’s ends to each of the bow’s ends, by wrapping the wire around a couple of times.
Now sew the bow onto the palm of Cupid’s left hand and the bow string onto his right hand palm.

Make Cupid’s arrow

Cut an approx. 6cm / 2.5″ piece of the thicker craft wire. Get it as straight as possible. Tie 3 short pieces of C3 yarn around one end of the wire (for the arrow’s feather fins).
Cut the small red pom pom into a heart shape with a small pair of scissors. Put a drop of contact glue onto the tip of the wire and glue the little heart on it as the arrow head.
Once dried, sew the arrow on the bow and Cupid’s right hand with a sewing needle and thread.

If you like your little Cupid to fly around, you can attach a loop of sewing thread to the back of his head.
