Raggedy Ann Doll


For the longest time I wanted to make a Raggedy Ann Doll. I wasn't sure if I wanted to make a rag doll to sew or crochet. Well, I decided to try it crocheted. It was so fun creating her. I love how her pinafore and petticoat came out. Everything went pretty fast except the hair - that took almost as long as the whole doll! I looped her hair individually so it would look full and thick. And even though I was trying to devise a simpler method, I really like the way she came out. I used Lion Brand Pound of Love, Caron One Pound and Red Heart Super Saver. She stand 15" tall head to toe. I am really pleased with her!

Thank you, I will probably mumble and grumble and do the same technique again, lol.

You truly are very talented! As per usual, I just LOVE this doll. I have spent hours pouring over your beautiful creations, forever adding to the list of "must do's". :) Thanks for sharing them with the public! If you should ever happen to crochet a cute little moose, I'd love to get my hands on the pattern! *hint, hint* Hehehe!
