Make your favorite doll a little closet full of clothes with these 18 beautiful American Girl Doll crochet patterns perfectly sized for all their needs.
American Girl dolls have been a children’s and collector’s craze for the last 35 years. However, these dolls don’t come cheap and neither do the vast collection of clothes you can buy to go with them.
Sometimes you can spend hundreds of dollars just buying a full outfit and accessories for your doll which will limit how many different outfits you can buy and switch your doll’s style with.
One alternative to buying these outfits from American Doll is making your own crochet clothing pieces. Not only will this cost a fraction of the price of buying them from the store, but it’ll also be unique pieces that you won’t be able to buy anywhere from the AG store.
For the cost of one outfit bought from the store, you could make 10 of your own by hand.
So if you need some inspiration on what to make for your American Girl doll, keep on reading to discover 18 beautiful crochet patterns that will have you eager to get started.
But before you head off to pick out which accessory you’re crocheting next, be sure to pin this to your favorite crochet inspiration board on Pinterest so you can find it again fast when you’re ready for your next project!
