Amigurumi Crochet Pattern – Doc in Scrubs

Amigurumi figures are quite easy and fun to make, even for a beginner crocheter. You only need to know 3 crochet stitches, CH – chain stitch, SL St – Slip Stitch and SC – single crochet.
This crochet pattern uses US crochet notation.
For UK: SC (single crochet) = DC (double crochet)
How to increase stitches:
Crochet 2 stitches in the same stitch
How to decrease stitches:
Skip a stitch and crochet in the next stitch

This is a basic pattern for an Amigurumi figure and can be easily adapted by making legs, arms, or body longer or shorter. You can make the body fatter by adding another row of increases, or thinner by reducing the number of decreases in a row.

This is a free Amigurumi doll crochet design for a doctor dressed in scrubs.
I used a Double Knitting weight cotton yarn for this crochet project.

Tunic Pattern

To make clothing I make the garment the same number of stitches around as the largest part of the body, but use a slightly larger crochet hook size.
For this doll the maximum width of the body was 24 stitches, so I made a chain of 24 stitches using a No 4 mm crochet hook size. Check this by wrapping the chain around the body to make sure it fits.
Join the chain together.
Row 1: SC around (24)
Rows 2-10: SC around (24)
Add or decrease additional rows as you wish, until the garment reaches just under the armpit of the doll.
Now you will be crocheting the rest of the shirt in two sections, front and back, rather than in the round.

11: SC across 12 stitches
12: turn, CH 1, SC across 11 stitches
repeat row 12, 4 times or until you reach the neckline.
Break the yarn.

11: Join the yarn at the armpit of the other side and
SC across 12 stitches
12: turn, CH 1, SC across 11 stitches
repeat row 12, 4 times or until you reach the neckline.
Break the yarn.

Put the shirt onto the doll and attach the shoulders together with a few slip stitches.

If you would like to add sleeves to the shirt you can pick up the stitches around the armhole of the shirt and crochet a sleeve.
