Free Crochet Pattern: Outfits for Mui-Chan Doll

Every doll has a journey. Some live behind glass. Some live on dresser tops. A few (the luckier ones) find their way to become a Belonging Doll, a doll who has secured a special place in that someone’s heart since almost the beginning.

Are you a doll collector? If you are, you need to own a Mui-Chan doll. She’s got the eyes of innocence and the face of a cutie pie. I named mine “Boo” as she reminded me of the little girl from Monsters Inc.

As she will be accompanying me on a Spring break trip to Japan, I decided to make her some warm clothes, you know, just in case it gets chilly.

I looked up some free crochet hat and scarf patterns on Pinterest and scaled them down accordingly so that it fits Boo (changes tracked in red below). Sharing them here for those who are keen to make similar ones for your Mui-Chan doll.
