How to Crochet the Noor Doll
To begin, first make the crochet doll body. Once you have made the body, come back here and we’ll begin Noor’s hair and clothes!
Note: This pattern is for the long latched hair cap. However, any of the hair caps from our Kozu Palm Pals crochet dolls will fit this doll.
Round 1: SC 6 into a magic ring.
Round 2: INC in each stitch around (12)
Round 3: (SC, INC) six times (18)
Round 4: (2 SC, INC) six times (24)
Round 5-9 (5 rounds): SC in each stitch around (24)
Note: The hair cap width can vary based on the yarn that you’re using so try it onto your doll’s head and see if you want to increase or decrease rounds here before fastening off.
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew the hair cap onto the hair.
How to Add Hair to a Crochet Doll (Latch Hair Step-by-Step)
Cut strands of yarn 12 inches in length. You will need a LOT but you can always cut more once you run out!
Loop the hair strands into the hair cap (see the step-by-step tutorial below)
The best way to attach the yarn is to begin by working along the hairline.
First strand the hair in each stitch around the edge of the hair cap. Next, insert strands on both sides of the hair parting for about a third of the way down the hair cap and one line at the edge of the parting, cutting across the hair cap. See the areas marked in pink in the diagram below (the top of the diagram is the front of the hair cap of your doll).
Then take your remaining strands and strand them throughout the hair until you are satisfied with the result. Trim the hair to the length and style you want.
Note: This pattern comes with jeans and a t-shirt. However, the clothes are removable so you can dress her up with the clothes from any of the other dolls in our Kozu Palm Pals dress up crochet dolls series.
Tip: The clothes were designed using the same hook and yarn size as the doll. However, as you are making the clothes, keep trying them on your doll to ensure that they fit. If they are too snug or too big, you can go up or down a hook size.
Note that the clothes should be put onto your doll from legs up, rather than over the head.
The clothes are crocheted in joined rounds. The slip stitch and chain between rounds do not count as stitches.
You will begin with two rows. Then you will join the two ends with a sl st and continue in rounds.
Row 1: Chain 19. Start in the second chain from the hook and SC across (18)
Row 2: Chain 1 and turn. INC in each SC across (36)
Round 3: Chain 1 and turn. 5 SC, skip 8 stitches, 10 SC, skip 8 stitches, 5 SC and sl st to the first SC to join. (20)
The skipped stitches will form the sleeves.
Round 4: Chain 1. SC in each stitch around and sl st to the first SC. (20)
Round 5: Chain 1, INC, SC 19 and sl st to the first SC. (21)
Round 6: Chain 1. SC in each stitch around, and sl st to the first SC (21)
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Round 1: Chain 18 and join with a sl st, being careful not to twist the chain.
Round 2: Chain 1. HDC around. Sl st to the first stitch (18)
Round 3: Chain 1. (8 SC, INC) twice. Sl st to the first stitch. (20)
Round 4: Chain 1. SC around. Sl st to the first stitch. (20)
Round 5: Chain 1. 10 SC. Leave the rest of the round unworked. Sl st to the first stitch of the round. (10)
Round 6: Chain 1. (INC, 9 SC). Sl St to the first stitch. (11)
Round 7-8 (2 rounds): Chain 1. SC around. Sl st to the first stitch. (11).
Now attach yarn into the first unworked stitch of Round 5 and repeat Rounds 5-8 for the second leg. Fasten off and use your yarn tail to sew the hole between the legs closed. Weave in the ends.
Round 1: Chain a length that will go around the hair as a hairband (this will vary based on your tension and how much hair you have put on your doll). The hairband should fit snugly, as you don’t want it to fall off. Sl st to the first chain, being careful not to twist the chain.
Round 2: Ch 1, SC around the chain and sl st to the first stitch of the round. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
(Chain 2, 3 HDC, chain 2, sl st) twice into a magic circle.
Fasten off and leave a long tail.
Wrap the tail a few times around the middle of your bow and sew the bow onto the hairband strap. Weave in the ends.
