Small Dress Up Crochet Dolls with Removable Clothes

Our crochet dress up dolls from our Kozu Palm Pals small crochet doll series are such fun and easy patterns. They were actually the first amigurumi patterns that we ever designed for our blog (and honestly the impetus for us launching Chai Coffee Crochet!)! These dress up crochet dolls first designed because my nephews wanted little siblings for their larger crochet dolls. And so when I started designing a doll base, I decided to crochet dolls with clothes because how fun is it to change doll clothes!

I remember when we were kids, my sister had a Barbie with a really extensive wardrobe with the best clothes (it was the 80s so shoulder pads, leg warmers and the like!) and I was SO envious. So when we played with our dolls, she would only allow me to use her clothes if her doll could be the star of the show (the smartest, prettiest, most popular, etc.). So perhaps designing my own crochet doll clothes wardrobe was my way of getting back at my sis. Lol – just kidding.

About the Crochet Dress Up Dolls Patterns

Our Kozu Palm Pals dress up dolls all are made from our standard crochet doll body. So first crochet a base for your doll and the magic begins from there! (I love when the dolls transform from a basic doll body to a complete character!).

All the Kozu Palm Pals dolls are made from the same pattern so the hair caps are all interchangeable (not just the ones from the our dress up dolls – but of all the amigurumi dolls in the series!). I love that because you can really customise the look as you like (and I love matching the hair with the hair style of the kid that I am making the doll for). I also often use these patterns to make personalised crochet dolls for people!

The crochet doll clothes are all removable and can be interchanged (so you can make an entire wardrobe for each of the dolls). They are put onto the dolls from the legs up (the doll heads are too big to put them on the other way!). The clothes were all crocheted with the same hook size as the doll bodies. However, yarn sizes and tension can vary so you should try on the clothes on your doll as you go along to ensure that they fit. If they are too snug or too big, you can go up or down a hook size as needed.

We are hoping to crochet more dolls with clothes for the series so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know about new crochet dress up dolls!

The patterns are all free on our blog but if you would like an ads-free print-friendly PDF pattern, you can buy them from our Ravelry Store.

What do I do if my crochet doll clothes don’t fit?

All of the clothes in the series were designed to fit your doll, using the same hook and yarn weight that you used to crochet your doll. However, sometimes yarns (even of the same brand!) can vary in thickness or we tend to crochet a bit tighter when doing something new. No worries. If your clothes are too large or too small, just try using a larger or a smaller hook, depending on whether you want to size up or down. Keep trying the clothes on the doll as you crochet, to make sure it fits.

I’m having trouble getting the clothes on my crochet doll. Help!

The clothes are all put onto the doll from the legs up. The head is a little larger than the body and so if you are trying to get them on that way, they won’t fit. Even when you’re doing them from the bottom up, it can sometimes be fiddly to get the clothes on, especially for pants or sleeves. The solution is just to tug a little to pull the arms of legs through through. Don’t worry – the crochet doll is stable and so a little tugging won’t do any damage to your doll!

How can I design my own crochet doll clothes?

While these patterns are for the specific doll clothes that you are making, once you make a few, you will get a better idea on how to do the different components of doll clothes (sleeves, pants, etc) and then the sky’s the limit (if you’re feeling adventurous!). Honestly, that’s how I learnt how to design doll clothes too – by making other patterns and then figuring out the principles of clothes. And viola – it’s amazing to see how much we can do!

I’m looking for different outfits for my dolls. Do you have any other crochet doll outfits?

While these are the complete list of our removable doll clothes for the collection (so far! I’m sure we will desig more when inspiration strikes!), we have a number of other built-in clothing options for the Kozu Palm Pals. Check out all the crochet dolls in the series and then the mix and match possibilities are endless!
