In recent years, crocheted dolls and figures have become very popular. The style of doll currently most popular is called Amigurumi figures, which is a Japanese word derived from 編み ami, meaning to crochet or knit, and 包み Kurumi, which means wrapping.
These types of dolls and figurines aren’t a new concept, meaning there’s a surplus of patterns and dolls you can buy pre-made already hitting the market.
In fact, you may even spot some famous figures in local places near you, like this adorable Van Gogh Doll at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
We’ve put together some of our favorites to showcase to you. Support a small business by buying one made or be inspired and create your own!
