Hello amigurumi lovers and beautiful visitors, I wanted to share free amigurumi models with you here. In my article, I will share with you a model and how to make it. At the end of my article, I will share with you the detailed construction patterns of the mold.


Any size 4 worsted weight yarn, you will need 4 different colors. Skin color, hair color and two different colors for the outfit and shoes.
