Crochet Phantom of the Opera Dolls Christine Mini Amigurumi

““Wildly my Mind beats against you, but my soul obeys.”

-Phantom of the Opera-

My love of musicals is no secret. But perhaps the very first musical I fell in love with was Phantom of the Opera. After making the mini Elphaba and Glinda amigurumi dolls, it really is no surprise that I wanted to make a Phantom and Christine to add to the musical ami collection!

Follow the pattern directions below to make a mini Phantom amigurumi of your very own. Missing the pattern for the angel of music? You can find his pattern here.

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 bottom/hidden hair piece to the doll’s head. Try sewing it to rnd 4 of the doll’s head, making sure the piece is centered along the back of the head.

Sew the top hair piece to the doll’s head (over the bottom/hidden hair piece).

Carefully sew the sleeve detail pieces to the body, placing them from the front to up and over the top of the doll’s arms.

Use a yarn needle and the tail ends of the yarn to sew the skirt detail piece to the body of the doll.

If desired, use a strand of GOLD thread to embroider on the shiny skirt details. See photos if necessary.

You can also sew a red flower or rose button to the doll’s head, placing the flower in her hair. Just make sure it’s sewn on securely!

Use a yarn needle and a strand of BROWN yarn to embroider on eyebrows.

Use a yarn needle and a strand of BLACK thread to embroider on eyelashes.

Weave in all ends.
