  4. Thank you for posting the instructions! I am asking my mom to make this for a 5 yr old with a brain tumor. One of her last wishes is to have a Frozen party and she will be dressed up like Elsa so I know she will be thrilled to have the doll. I may have missed it but will it take 1 skeen of each brand/color?

  5. Excellent and most AWESOME tutorial. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. I am trying to work out how to turn a K-Pop Korean band into a set of dolls for my daughter for Christmas and I am now a step closer. You ROCK :) I just have to find some clothing patterns now. Any idea how I can make trousers? I can't believe that I found this amazing pattern finally after all of my searching. Thank you for being such a wonderfully generous crocheter, I really can't thank you enough :)

  10. Very amazing pattern, thank you.
    However, Rnd 73 is missing, would that be a decrease round or a sc around?
    Also, please when and how do we sew on the arms.
    Thanks again, Have a great day.

    1. I am also at that point I would go by the picture at the neck or a row below down three on each side of body and try on dress to see if it looks ok. I just ignored round 73 and kept following instructions it looks fine. good luck.

  11. How big does she end up being?? I am going to start her soon.

  12. I know that this may sound like a silly question. But I need to know! Should we join each round with a slip stich? Then chain 1?

    ReplyDelete
  13. thank you so much for giving us this pattern! I made this for my 4 year old granddaughter who is so crazy for Frozen and esp Elsa and she loved it! I loved making it as well and the fabric crayon worked great!. Next I am making either one just like my granddaughter or another DIsney princess! thanks again for for generosity. Also, I appreciate your details and you do tell us its a tutorial!

  14. I did not find the instructions for the skirt. I only found the instructions to attach the top to the skirt. Where can I find the skirt pattern?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't understand row 6 and 7. Please explain to me what to do.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Row 6 is sc in next 2 stitches then sc 2 together repeat 3 times then do 6 sc. Row 7 is sc in next stitch then sc 2 together repeat twice then do 9 sc. Does that make sense?? Sc 2 together is a decrease. 😊

  16. Where and when do we put the arms on?

    ReplyDelete
  17. On the dress in the later rows it says ex:3sc, 45sc . Wouldn't that just be 48sc? Thank you.

    ReplyDelete

    1. You are creating the point in the dress so it is 3sc in the next st, then 45 sc...Thank you for This remark, I changed it in the pattern to make it clearer! Happy Crochet

  19. I've got another question. How tall was your finished doll?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Is the magic circle you talk about a product, or do you start with a crochet chain? How many loops is your chain for the circle?
