Mini Anna and Elsa Amigurumi

Wow, things have been so busy lately! I haven’t had a chance to take proper photos of the mini Anna and Elsa amis, so I’ve decided to just post their patterns as their own blog post and upload the completed PDFs at another time. Anna is first, and Elsa’s pattern is further down the page. Happy crafting!

Finishing Steps

Use a yarn needle and the tail ends of the yarn to carefully sew the arms onto the body between rounds 11 and 12. If desired, you can stitch the openings at the tops of the arms flat before sewing the arms to the body.

Sew the hair piece to the doll’s head. Then, if desired, weave a strand of WHITE yarn through the middle chain of the doll’s right ponytail. Then braid the strands together. Tie (or sew) together with a strand of RUSTY ORANGE yarn. Weave in ends.

Weave a strand of MAGENTA yarn through the top corners of the cape. Use these ends to tie a bow at the front of the doll, tying the cape together.

Sew the hair piece to the doll’s head so that the braid falls over the doll’s shoulder.

Carefully position each of the “bang” pieces and stitch them back. If desired, carefully stitch a single strand of hair across the doll’s forehead to indicate a stray lock of hair. See photos for placement if necessary.

Use a strand of ICY BLUE yarn and a yarn needle to embroider on the front dress details. See photos for placement if necessary.

Sew the cape to the back of the doll’s dress, where the SKIN TONE color meets the LIGHT BLUE color of the dress.
