Enter the whimsical world of Lulu Compotine's crocheted companions and bring her 8 enchanting dolls and their adorable animal friends to life!

Lulu's Crochet Dolls takes readers on a creative journey through the seasons. Written by Sandra Muller under the pseudonym Lulu Compotine, the book features a collection of 8 charming crochet dolls, between 7 and 12 inches in height and in an increasing order of difficulty over the seasons: from the joyful strawberry-and-flower picking adventures of Caroline and Charlotte in Springtime to the festive fun had by Celia and Zoé in Winter, the dolls come to life with intricate crochet patterns and imaginative narratives.

These endearing characters, each with unique outfits and accessories, are also accompanied by a wonderful crew of animal friends, including a dainty ladybird, a friendly squirrel, a lovable cat and a mischievous mouse. Those new to crochet will especially enjoy the thoughtful layout. Sandra offers:

  • Details of the equipment needed
  • The basics of crochet to know with the step-by-step diagrams of the different stitches: magic circle, chain stitch, slip stitch, double crochet, increase, decrease
  • Technical advice and pro tips for crocheting a spiral, creating a face, assembling an amigurumi
  • Step-by-step photos for each model.

In addition to the patterns, the book provides valuable technical recommendations. Sandra shares her preferred crochet hooks and yarn choices, providing options for customisation. The importance of proper assembly is also emphasised, to create durable and visually appealing dolls.

Dive into this enchanting crochet world, where Lulu's dolls and their delightful animal friends await your creative touch!

About the Author

About Lulu Compotine

Behind Lulu Compotine is Sandra Muller!

Sandra established Lulu Compotine in 2018 after initially learning to knit clothes for her children. She then stumbled upon the wonderful realm of amigurumi vibrant, crocheted cuddly toys! Consequently, her first charming crochet Owl came to life.

Since then, not a day has passed without Sandra taking up her crochet hook! Gradually, character dolls have taken precedence over animals, as she relishes the process of crafting garments and accessories, reminiscent of her childhood spent playing with dolls.

Sandra showcases her work on social media and provides patterns on Etsy, enabling enthusiasts to embark on their own journey of crocheting delightful cuddly toys and dolls.

Customer Review

I absolutely love this book. It is laid out beautifully with clear photographs showing you the steps in just the right places. The excellent patterns take you through the seasons with 8 dolls to crochet as well as a host of accessories and little animals, all very cute. Wild swimming is popular in our area so I have made Agatha, a swimmer, with her little armbands. She is a bit larger as I used yarn from my stash. More makes from this book will definitely follow. I think the little turtle will be next, or maybe Agatha's bag. I can't recommend it enough.
