Pattern Description:

This feisty princess is the same size as my other princess crochet patterns, with Japanese-inspired "kawaii" big-head/small body cuteness, but with a unique look: lustrous yarn, a slimmer dress, and a kinked, springy mass of fiery-red hair.

Pattern includes written instructions and photos showing how to make all parts of the doll, including the hair. Pattern is for those with beginner-to-intermediate crochet skills and basic needle-work skills. Doll parts are made in spiral rounds.

To make doll, you will need to know how to:
-- read a crochet pattern
-- chain
-- slip stitch
-- single crochet
-- single crochet decrease or invisible decrease

Pattern includes:
-- definitions of stitch abbreviations
-- materials list, including recommended yarn brands and colors and where to find mat'ls
-- lots of instructive color photos
-- links to helpful online crochet tutorials

Finished doll is about 5.5 inches (14 cm) tall, 2.5 inches (7 cm) wide at base, and stands on its own.
