Maya Basic doll pattern

https://ayarnfulday.blogspot.com/2017/03/maya-basic-doll-pattern.html


If you love making dolls but don't like sewing parts,you will like this pattern for sure.
Pattern for this doll's leg,body,and head is designed to be crocheted all together.
The arms have to be crocheted ahead for later attachment using crochet as you go method.
 
Gauge:
 Gauge is not a big deal on this pattern,as long as same size yarn and crochet hook are used for all the pattern pieces.Since tension may vary in different circumstances,i suggest finishing the parts that must be the same such as arms and legs in one sitting.
This pattern is worked from top to bottom by working in continuous round or spiral method.
You can use this pattern to create larger or smaller doll by using bulkier or finer yarn.You  may need to adjust the size or safety eyes.

 Pattern is written in US Terminology.

Abbreviation:

Sc- single crochet
Ch- chain
Inc- increase
Dec- invisible decrease
St- stitch
Sts- stitches


Materials

-Light worsted / dk yarn

  1. What round do you suggest attaching the arms at as I do not see any mention of attaching them in your pattern? Also, do you leave a long tail to attach them or are they crocheted on in the round?

    1. Same. I don't quite understand how to join the legs? I put a stitch marker in the 3rd stitch on the first leg and a stitch marker in the 16th stitch on the 2nd leg, but I'm lost at how I'm supposed to connect the two with a ch2. Can the pattern maker add to this pattern or make the instructions a bit more clear at that part? Thank you so much!

    1. Hi.to join the legs, you need a piece of yarn (scrap yarn will do) you attach the piece of yarn in the 3rd st of the first leg (which will be the right leg) and make a chain two, drop the chain, inert your hook to the 16th chain of your second leg (which will be the left leg) draw the droped loop in the stitch and finish off the chain.i hope it helps

I've read the other comments and your suggestions, and yet I still cannot see how it can be done. I also read some of your other patterns to see if I could figure it out, eek, I cannot.
