Classic Pants and Shoes for Amigurumi – FREE Crochet Pattern Tutorial for DIY Dolls

Build Ami Series #3

Hello, friend.

If you’re new to the Build Ami series, Welcome! I’m on the quest of creating the ultimate list of crochet patterns that relate to making amigurumi. This is the third issue of the series where we’ll learn how to make Pants and Shoes for your amigurumi based on my Classic Doll Base design.

For this pattern you’ll need to first complete the head of your amigurumi according to the Classic Doll Base Crochet Pattern

  • First, click on the link above to find the Classic Doll Base.
  • Once you have placed the safety eyes, come back to this pattern for the T-Shirt tutorial.

The ad-free and printable version of this pattern can be found at Ribblr and Etsy.



  • Ch: Chain
  • Sc: Single Crochet
  • Sl st: Slip Stitch
  • Sc dec: Single crochet Decrease
  • (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, you should have done so by this point. Refer to the pattern for information on placing the safety eyes.


Follow the Classic T-Shirt pattern or another one of our patterns that’ll help you complete your doll’s top outfit.


Using the yarn color you want the pants to be:

  1. Sl st to the last stitch from the Top section. Ch 1, skip this ch and sc around, sl st to the first sc (16)
  2. Ch 1, skip this ch and sc around, sl st to the first sc (16)
  3. Ch 1, sc 5, skip the next 8 stitches, sc 3, sl st to the first sc (8). This is meant to split the torso into two sections, one for each leg. DO NOT FASTEN OFF

You should now have divided the torso into two equal-sized holes for each leg. (8 stitches each)

4. – 7. [4 Rounds] Ch 1, sc 8, sl st to the first sc (8) Fasten off.

This completes the first pant leg.

Re-attach the yarn at the base of the torso next to the first leg and sc around. To close the gap between the union between the legs grab a random stitch from the middle of the first leg as well as both loops from the next stitch and work a single crochet. This completes the first round. Continue with steps 4-7 to complete the second pant leg.


Switch to the yarn color that you want the shoes to be. Re-attach the yarn to the last stitch from the Pants section of whichever leg:

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

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.

This completes the first leg and foot, repeat rounds 1 and 2 to complete the second leg and foot.

Next week I’ll post the crochet pattern for making a Removable Jacket for amigurumi dolls.
