  • Ch: Chain
  • Sc: Single Crochet
  • Sl st: Slip Stitch
  • Sc dec: Single crochet Decrease
  • Sc inc: Single crochet Increase
  • (xx): Numbers in bold mean stitch count at the end of each round

Materials Needed:

  • 4.50mm Crochet Hook
  • Medium Weight Yarn (Red Heart Super Saver)
  • Polyester Fiberfill
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle (metal recommended)
  • Stitch Marker (improvised markers: paper clip, bobby pin, piece of different color yarn)

This entire pattern is worked in the round and most of it is a single piece.

Follow the Classic Doll Base pattern until Round 20. If you’re going to add safety eyes, this is the time to place them. Refer to the Doll Base pattern for information on placing the safety eyes.

Once you’re done with Round 20, SL ST into the next stitch and fasten off.


Switch to the yarn color you’ll use for the T-Shirt’s collar. Sl st to the stitch where you fastened off the head’s yarn:

  1. Ch 1 (the ch does NOT count as a sc), skip the ch, (1sc, 1 sc inc) x6, sl st to the first sc of this round. (18)
  2. Switch your yarn to the T-Shirt’s main color. Ch 1, skip the ch, (1sc, 1 sc inc, 1sc) x6, sl st to the first sc of this round. (24)
  3. Ch 1, skip the ch, (3sc, 1 sc inc) x6, sl st to the first sc of this round. (30)

Count 7 stitches after the end of this round and sc into the 8th. This creates the first arm hole, we will not work on it until further on. Single crochet a total of 8 stitches across, count 7 stitches to leave untouched and sc into the 8th stitch, sc across for a total of 8 stitches. This completes the first row of the torso.

VERIFY YOUR COUNTING: You should have 2 arm holes consisting of 7 sc each and this first row of the torso should be a total of 16 stitches around.

Set your stitch marker and sc for 3 more rows for a total of 4 sc rows.

This completes the torso portion of the T-Shirt. We will now work on the arms.


  1. Using the T-Shirt’s main color yarn. Attach the yarn to a stitch on the corner of an arm gap, ch 1, skip the ch, sc 7 around and work one sc on the “armpit” area (pictured). There is no evident space to place this sc but you need it in order to have proportional arms and legs. Sl st into the first sc of the round. (8)

2. Ch 1, sc 8, sl st to the first sc (8)

3. Switch to the yarn the color of your character’s skin. Ch 1, skip the ch, sc 8, sl st to the first sc (8)

4-7. (4 rounds) Ch 1, sc 8, sl st to the first sc (8)

At the end of round 7.  Fasten off leaving a 4 inch tail. Using your yarn needle go through the outer loop of each stitch and then pull the tail to close the opening. Hide the yarn end inside.

Repeat this process on the other side to make the second arm.

You have now added a T-Shirt to your amigurumi doll!
