Baby Doll Bottle Amigurumi
Materials:

Polyfil Stuffing

 

Skill level: Beginner
1 Craft Yarn Council - Beginner Definition

 

Gauge:
Not Important

 

INSPIRATION AND OTHER NOTES:
·         Baby Weight yarn and E hook, my finished baby bottle was 3 ½ inches tall by 1 ½ inches in diameter across the bottom.
·         To make a bigger bottle, you can go up in hook size or use a larger weight yarn.
·         Worsted Weight yarn and an F hook create a bottle 5 inches tall by just under 2 inches diameter across the bottom.
·         Worsted weight yarn and a G hook create a bottle 6 inches tall by 2 inches inches diameter across the bottom.
·         This pattern could make shorter 4 oz looking bottles too.
·         The white could be orange or red to represent juice.
·         The top could be blue or pink – use for baby showers or announce the sex of the baby.
·         Large bottles made from soft bulky yarn would make excellent photo props.

 

A Note about Gauge: For those of you who do not understand how gauge works, or are looking to learn more on the subject, I have written a very helpful blog on gauge that has proved helpful when trying to figure out how big/small of a hook/yarn to use. If you still need help after you’ve browsed this, please let me know and I will try to help in any way that I can.  http://articlesofadomesticgoddess.com/2014/05/matching-gauge-and-why-it-is-so-important/

 

A Note about Technique (The Golden Loop Method): This is not just for amigurumi items; it will help in ALL areas where crochet is involved. (Although, it helps most with amigurumi because of the nature of tight stitching.) I know I often hear of people having trouble “making their stitches tight enough” or they frequently have problems matching gauge (even if their items turn out okay on sizing, it doesn’t necessarily mean there isn’t improvement to be made.) I too had many problems when learning to create amigurumi objects when I first started out. I have written a helpful blog that should help to pinpoint the areas that need improvement so that you, too, can create beautiful amigurumi items. There is ALWAYS room for improvements to be made, no matter how long you have been crocheting. Later, you will notice that all items are improved by using this easy method! If you still need help after you’ve browsed this, please let me know and I will try to help in any way that I can. http://articlesofadomesticgoddess.com/2014/04/amigurimi-technique-that-will-always-work-and-will-change-the-way-you-crochet-forever/

A Note about Stitches:When I first started, I had to look up stitches every time I started a new project. I have compiled some of the videos and articles I used to walk me through the basic stitches (and some others) in a blog on my website. They are the best I’ve found around the internet, all compiled in one spot for ease.
MC – Magic Circle       For a tutorial on the magic circle, visit my blog at the following link:
                                                http://articlesofadomesticgoddess.com/2014/03/magic-circle-tutorial/
CH – Chain
ST; STS – Stitch or stitches
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
FPSC – Front Post Single Crochet (Single crochet around front of the post of a stitch instead of loops)
BPSC – Back Post Single Crochet (Single crochet around back of the post of a stitch instead of loops)
SLST – Slip Stitch
SP – Space
SK – Skip
FO – Fasten Off
X after a number = number of stitches to work in after current stitch (ex: sc 2X = sc in next two stitches)
BLO – Back Loop Only

 

Tip: Ch1 at the beginning of each stitch does not count as first stitch. First st of every round should be in same st as turning chain.

 

Do not join unless pattern specifically says to join.
There are areas where joining is needed to create a flush round and areas where joining is omitted to create a seamless round, so PAY ATTENTION.
Crochet in spiral, use stitch marker to mark your first st.
