Hello my fellow crocheters,

I'm excited to share with you my newest amigurumi doll design!  Does she look familiar?  If you're thinking Anne of Green Gables, you are correct!  This vivacious girlie is a variation of my Baby Bean (free amigurumi pattern):


The instructions for Anne include:
  • Body base color changes, using the free Baby Bean Doll Base pattern
  • Dress
  • Apron
  • Hat
  • Hair tutorial (available in PDF pattern file and Youtube video)

Anne is the third member of the Baby Bean Doll Base family.  You can view all the Baby Beans here!


This Anne of Green Gables design features the famous and charming orphan wearing her hat, green dress, white apron, and recognizable red hair in braids.  This doll makes the perfect gift for anyone who is a fan of the classic book or TV series (Anne with an E).
