Head shape:

Nose and eyes:

  • Embroider the nose and mouth, attach your eyes

  • I make my eyes with a micrifiber tissue: I paint the eyes with acrylics onto the tissue, secure them with a water based clear glosh varnish, cut them out and glue them to head as I like

Ears: make 2

R1: ch 6 (6)

R2: in 2nd ch from hook, 5 sc (5)

  • Fasten off, leave long tail for sewing

  • Sew to the head befor you attach the hair


  • Take a soft brush, rub some chalk off and attach this pastel chalk pouder to the dolls face


  • Embroider Elsas bangs with your vanilla colored yarn, attach the rest to the top of the head, secure the sides of the hair with glue (hot glue works best for me), braid her hair in the back and attach a black satin ribbon as a headband


  • Attach your brigth blue yarn to the extra loops of round 27 with a slip stitch to the middle of the chest

  • Make 1 sc, crochet with double crochets around the collar, make 1 sc, 1 slip stitch, leave one loop right in the middle of the chest unworked

  • Weave in your ends

Arms: (begin in brigth blue) make 2

  • Leave long tail for sewing, if your arm „grows“, bring your tail outside

R25+26: Leave your thumb unworked, jump over this place, sc around for 2 rounds

R27: 1sc, decrease (around)

R28: flatten the hand and crochet your loops together,

fasten off and weave in ends

  • Alternative: Don't make a thumb, just work a simple hand after round 23

  • Stuff your hand only a little bit, so you can flatten it without problems

  • For the „sleeve“ look, attach your bright blue yarn to the extra loops of round 9 with a slip stitch, ch 2, double crochet around, join your round with a slip stitch, fasten off and weave in your ends.

  • Be careful to watch the direction of the thumb, it has to point into your direction if you attach the arms to the body.


  • Attach black satin ribbons as the straps and bodice, decorate as you like (I glued mine to the upper torso, my bodice is painted with acrylics)

  • Cut out a skirt from middle blue felt, attach it over the ends of the straps, sew or glue black lace to the hem of your skirt, attach a black satin ribbon and decorate as you like (mine is painted as well)

  • Attach dark blue ribbon as the belt, glue an extra bow to the back where the ends of your belt meet

  • Draw 2 thin lines above and under the black ribbon on the skirt for decoration (you can use water color pencils for example


  • Work in black yarn, like the legs until round 8, fasten off and attach it with one stitch of sewing to your legs (in the back), weave in ends

Now you should be done! I would love to the your creations, post your links into the comments, please! =)

If you use this pattern, please give me credit and don't sell it as your own. I also don't want you to sell the finished doll.

Enjoy your very own Elsa! <3

Wow, that's cool! I crochet, but I've never made a doll or figure before.
