Dolls hold a very special place in the world of crafting and especially so in crochet, perhaps because there are so many ways to add personal touches to the completed project. Among these, amigurumi doll crochet patterns tend to stand out from the pack simply for their outstanding use of shape that seemingly makes them jump to life in the imagination.
For children, amigurumi dolls are embraced almost instantly and in a way that forms a strong bond that can last a lifetime. These are clearly among the best items a crocheter can ever make for a child as a gift or keepsake, and if an item gets worn of damaged another can always be made in a short time frame as a replacement.
