Mori Girl Doll · Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern for Human Body Base

by - December 25, 2021


Woodland vibes, anyone? It's a yes please for me! I have SUCH an affinity for the mori girl style (Japanese "forest girl" style), and am all about rustic and fairytale aesthetics.

Hence, my Mori Girl Doll...version two(Click here to see her video debut!)

I did make an original Mori Girl doll back in 2017.  I have since decided to create a new one who still has that woodland vibe, but a different look.

This new Mori Girl pattern features a sweet amigurumi doll with three different outfits and a total of seven accessories to dress her up in.  That includes a kitty cat-eared hood (or bonnet hat, if you'd like to call it that!), a teddy bear-eared hood, scarves, dresses, and a sleeping bag. 


One of the things I love about this design is that it's relatively quick to work up.  It can easily be customized as well, by using different yarn color combinations or by adding embellishments and appliques.  Children will love to play dress up with the clothes and extra items in this bundle.  (Hint, hint... these would make a sweet toy set for birthday or holiday gifts!) 

The yarn I chose for the cat and bear outfits are Caron Simply Soft Tweeds.  I just LOVE the speckles of color; this tweed yarn has a wonderfully natural and earthy look.  Since I was so obsessed with both the dark brown and off-white tweed colors, I decided to use both for Mori Girl's two outfits.  As you can see, they complement one another as the main and secondary colors are reversed!  


The Mori Girl Doll's body base pattern is available for free on my blog!  Want to make all her clothes and accessories too?  Be sure to download the PDF pattern to get her entire bundle of items!  The PDF pattern is ad-free, printable, beautifully-formatted, and includes photo references.  (Your purchase greatly supports my small crochet business too!)

Oh, and... I made a video for her debut.  Check out her pattern preview video to see the Mori Girl in action, her three outfits, and how she gets dressed in them!
