Ariel Pattern

I’ve been working on yet another custom order, this time the beautiful Disney princess Ariel, and like promised here is the pattern for her. I really enjoyed this creation and I hope you’ll like her too. Don’t forget to ask if you have any doubt with the pattern, and if you decide to make your own Ariel princess I would love to see her.

Join the head to the top of the body

For the top part of the tail, use the mint green yarn and sc directly on to the doll around the waist.


Arms (make two)

Skin tone yarn

Rnd 1: 4 sc in MR (4)

Rnd 2-7: Sc around (4) Leave tail for sewing and finish off.

Attach the arms on the sides of the body, near the “neck” area.


Fin (make two)

Row 1: Ch 2, skip first st then inc, ch 1, turn (2)

Row 2: Inc 2, ch 1, turn (4)

Row 3-4: Sc 4, ch 1, turn (4)

Row 5: Sc, dec, sc, turn (3)

Row 6: Skip first st, dec (1)

Sc around, approximately 11 st.

Attach the fins to the bottom of the tail.


Bikini shell (make two)

Purple yarn

Row 1: Ch 3, skip the first two st, 3 dc in same st and slst. Leave long tail and finish off.

Join shells in the center and attach the edges to the front of the body. Then create the back stripe with the remaining yarn tail.

For the hair I used a shade of pink instead of red because overall it looked more in harmony with the rest of the colors. Amigurumi hair is always the part where I have more difficulties, so normally I search for tutorials. For Ariel’s hair I used this really natural looking tutorial that you can find here.
