A pattern for this beautiful crochet doll, designed by Lir from Crochet with Lir.
Please note: This is a PATTERN ONLY, not a finished product.
Being a Leprechaun is not easy!
Saoirse is trying not to be seen by humans every day, but it’s very hard for her.
She enjoys the human’s music so much, she has to sneak into the city to listen to live music without being seen. Her favourite band is Kila, and her favourite movie is ‘Song of the sea’.
‘Saoirse’ is a wired doll and she’s completely flexible – her legs are attached to the body with a button joint so she can move them freely. Her body is crocheted from the waist to the top of her head as one piece and the arms are joined to the body by crochet and not sewing. She comes with 1 set of clothing – T shirt, trousers, shoes and a hat.
This 16-page PDF pattern is in English (both US and UK terms available). It contains a detailed description of how to make this doll with step-by-step written instructions and pictures, a list of materials and abbreviation. There’s also a FREE video tutorial so you can follow me on the video as you work.
You will receive the PDF pattern by email immediately after your purchase. The link to the free video tutorial is attached on the 2nd page of the pattern.
