It's the Scottish princess Merida from "Brave," perfectly characterized by her father the King, "I don't want to get married, I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen, firing arrows into the sunset!"
I wanted to create my own version of this feisty princess to go with my other princess crochet patterns--the Japanese-inspired "kawaii" big-head/small body cuteness--but with a unique look to match the sharp style of the computer-animated character: 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
-- slip stitch
-- single crochet
-- single crochet decrease or invisible decrease
-- 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.

My goal is to provide the most accurate, detailed, and clear crochet instructions possible. I spend many hours writing, designing, proof-reading, and testing each pattern. Each pattern includes step-by-step photos to illustrate the text. I want your crochet experience with my patterns to be error-free, easy to understand, and creatively satisfying.
