how to crochet a fairy

Flora the Fairy- Free CAL

Welcome back to my blog for a brand-new free crochet-along for March 2024.

This crochet-along will take place over the course of 4 weeks. Every Thursday, I will be posting a brand-new section of the pattern in a separate post.

The dates will be listed below. Each week, when the section is available, the post will be highlighted.

This post is the introduction to the Fairy pattern, explaining in more detail what you will need to make her, how the pattern is structured, and the stitches that will be needed to make her.

Yarn Needed:

Light or medium worsted weight yarn / Double knit, chunky yarn.

Acrylic or cotton works best for the doll. 

    • Colour A: 20g /60m (Skintone)
    • Colour B: 15g / 45m (Hair colour)
    • Colour C: 9g/ 27m (wings)
    • Colour D: 7g/ 21m (Dress)
    • Colour E: 8g/ 24m (Petals/shoes)
    • Brown and white embroidery thread for eye

Colour for this doll is optional, I used the following yarn from Elle, Charity Pullskein :

  • Colour A: Neutral
  • Colour B: soft yellow
  • Colour C: White
  • Colour D: Dusty pink
  • Colour C: Prune
  • Brown and white embroidery thread for eyes

Flora the crochet fairy is a low-sewing pattern. This means that you will be inserting the petals and arms as you crochet her body.

The only sections of the pattern that need sewing are her head, hair, buns, and wings.

Flora is a beginner-friendly pattern with only basic stitches: single crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet.

Stitch terms:

  • SC: Single Crochet
  • DC: Double Crochet
  • TC: Treble Crochet
  • MC: Magic Ring (CH2 start is optional)
  • INC: INCrease
  • DEC: DECrease
  • SL ST: Slip-stitch
  • CH: Chain
  • FO: Finish off
  • STS: Stitches
  • BLO: Back Loop Only

To stabilize this fairy’s neck, you’ll need some cotton earbud cleaners or plastic straws.

Tie a bunch of earbuds together and place them between the head and neck when sewing. Alternatively, you can take a couple of plastic straws, fold them in half, tie them together, and use them in the neck for support.

Other tools you will need to complete your fairy: 

  • Crochet hook 3.0 mm
  • Scissors
  • Stuffing
  • 10 mm safety eyes (optional)
  • Stitch marker
  • Tapestry needle
