Free Crochet Pattern – Beautiful Amigurumi Bride Merlinda

I’m excited to share that all my original amigurumi crochet patterns I previously sold online are now free, and I will be sharing a Free Crochet Pattern every month. These patterns were crafted with love and enjoyed by many customers over the years. As I transition from amigurumi design to exploring other fiber arts, I wanted to ensure these beloved creations continue to bring joy to fellow crochet enthusiasts. Dive in, get inspired, and happy crocheting!

Although these patterns are shared exclusively on this website, I still retain the copyright. I encourage readers to share the links, but please note that the patterns cannot be sold or used for any monetary gain, including incorporation into crochet kits for sale.

Let’s jump in with our first Free Crochet Pattern (originally a paid pattern)! I used fingering yarn when designing Merlinda. You can switch the yarn with a corresponding crochet hook and parts like eyes and pearls, but the finished doll will be larger than the stated measurement. All our patterns use American crochet terminology.
