Amigurumi Dolls

Amigurumi-dollsAmigurumi Dolls

Amigurumi dolls are everywhere. Funny name, beautiful artwork. I have looked for some loom knitting patterns to try. Not much luck.

As usual there were hundreds available for free under knitting and crocheting. I found one pattern which was part of a book you needed to buy and the other one was too complicated.

I found an easier way… This is Part 1 (sorry)




You Need Two Types of Looms – 24-peg Loom and a Spool or Flower Loom for arms and legs.

Loom-knit-amigurumi-dollsThe Baby Hat is Step One – VERY EASY

In order to make the Amigurumi dolls the easy way you must first know how to make a baby hat. This is the easiest loom knit project you could ever imagine. They’re made with the small 24-peg loom.

This little hat has no brim and you only need to know how to wrap yarn around pegs, scoop the loop over the peg and close the top when you have gone around enough times.

Loom-Knit-DollThe Half-way Loom Knit Amigurumi Dolls

My first attempt to make a doll was my Ball Dolly. I thought she was pretty cute.

I’ve been told that she too is an Amigurumi. So maybe the other once were not my first. I know that she doesn’t have a face. When I made this doll I couldn’t figure out how to do it.  Now I can that that it’s ok because this is a common feature in Amigurumi Dolls.

This is the next step and it includes a video and picture tutorial.

Part 2 to Follow Shortly

Heads up – the hands and feet are made on the spool loom. I basically make 4 tiny hats – fill them with poly fill and sew them on.

    Hello and thank you so much for teaching me…us…to loom knit. Your videos have helped in huge ways.
    I am now working on this cute little peachy doll and was not happy about my first try at the arms and legs. To my eye, they were too large so I changed it up a bit and thought I would post it here…I hope you don’t mind. I decided to use the smaller end of the spool loom and knitted five rows of two-over-one stitches. Used the gathering method to remove it and then put those (using 2 as 1 worsted weight yarn) two threads on a needle. Used a wooden stick to put just a little poly fill into it , made a bit and pushed the needle through the length to come out the other side. A little tug and a knot and I now have the correctly proportioned arms and legs. See them on and the doll us adorable! So happy…thanks again…and I look forward to learning more from you. Wishing us all a lovely day ????

    Where can I find the complete pattern for the doll that uses the spool loom. I am very interested in that doll

    I have made an amigurumi, with no arms or legs or facial features. My eldest daughter saw what I was making and asked if she could have it when I was done. Now my middle daughter insists I make one for her too! I have almost finished, just need to ployfil and put together.
    I’ve decided to make comfort dolls for the babies in our family, 2 x second cousins, 1 x niece and 1 x nephew. They’ll be part of their Christmas present. I’d best get started!!
    Looking forward to part 2. :o)

    Can’t wait for the full pattern. This sounds like fun. An easy way to make dolls for the babies at the hospital where I donate.

    Thank you for this post on the little amigurumi doll. I have just started loom knitting, but I do crochet. I wanted something different to do to make hats, etc. Loom knitting is so fun. I have been looking all over the internet for a little doll to make for my cradle purses. I wanted something cute and fairly quick to make on the loom. The doll that you made is just what I am looking for. Hopefully mine will turn out just as cute as yours. Oh, by the way, you wouldn’t happen to have a loom knitting pattern for a cradle purse. I know how to crochet them, but I want to try making them on a loom. I guess I could use a little loom knitting purse pattern. I don’t know. Any ideas on this would be appreciated. Thanks again for the doll pattern.

      Hi Kelly, sorry for the delay in response. I will research more on the cradle purse – they are VERY cute. I’m sorry that I can’t make any suggestions at the moment I would think that a lined purse with a flat panel for the blanket should work but I try not to make suggestions on projects I have not worked out myself.

    Would it be possible to do a video on how to make the tiny hats and what loom to make them on .I am a visual learner I am sorry it’s just easier for me to watch a video to see how something is made

    • Denise Cenela August 31, 2013 at 9:06 pm

      Sherri, I understand you more then you know. I too am a visual leaner. The video for the tiny hat is already available. It is a preemie hat. Here is the link:
