Frida Kahlo Doll - Amigurumi crochet pattern
The iconic Frida was not only an emblematic mexican artist : she also was a very intense, passionate, pioneer feminist and courageous woman. This pattern is an humble tribute to her memory.
TO MAKE THIS PATTERN YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW HOW TO :
begin with a magic ring single crochet increase decrease work in continuous rounds switch color
Gauge is not essential for this project : you can use any size of hook you want as long as your yarn choice is consistent with it. Just be careful to work tight stitches so as the stuffing doesn’t show through.
This pattern is an english written tutorial by Julie of Armigurumi.

Hello! I’m Julie. When I was little, my grandmother taught me how to crochet. She showed me how to make grannies, and I hoped one day to have done enough to make a blanket … but it never happened!
Years later, I discovered amigurumis, these little critters from Japan. I became addicted!
Very quickly, I entered the infernal spiral of any self-respecting hooker: an extended to-do-list and a exponentially growing stock of balls.
As I colonized my apartment and that of my loved ones, I felt that I wanted to go further, like: to infinity and beyond. So I jumped into the water and that’s how my first models were born!
