Alvarie the Fairy: Amigurumi Pattern

Today I caught this little fairy, isn’t she cute?

Alvarie is a shy fairy who’s only 3.5 inches tall. This soft, stellar, and sweet star fairy is easy to make and so lovable!
This is my original pattern 🙂 Please don’t try to copy it or sell it as your own. However, if you wish to sell your own Alvarie Fairy’s thats alright, just send a shout out to my pattern, mmkies? Okies!

If there are any questions, lemme know and I will help out. Enjoy, I’d love to see someone make their own fairies!

Rnd 12: sc 1, 2tog (12)
Rnd 12: 2tog until end, leaving a long tail

Wig Cap:
Use the Mohair Yarn, use 2.50 mm hook. For the hair net make the stitches looser than normal. Because of this, the size of your hair net may vary from the directions
Rnd 1: Magic Loop 6
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (12)
Rnd 3: sc, 2sc in next st (18)
Rnd 4: 2 sc, 2sc in next st (24)
Rnd 5: 3 sc, 2 sc in next st (30) fasten off and no need for a tail.
For assembly: Sew wig cap to your fairy’s head. I started sewing the outline then sew over the cap to create the look of hair. For a tutorial on how I did this, click here. If you want her to have her hair pulled up, be sure to sew in that direction.
Optional: If you want her little buns, follow this:
Rnd 1: Magic Loop 3
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (6)
Rnd 3-4: sc 6
Rnd 4: stog until closed. Glue or sew them to wig cap.

Body:
Using skin color and 2.50 mm hook
Rnd 1: Magic Loop 6
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (12)
Rnd 3: sc, 2sc in next st (18)
Rnd 4: 2sc, 2sc in next st (24)
Rnd 5-6: sc 24
Rnd 7: 2sc, 2tog (18)
Rnd 8: sc 18 **Attach arms and legs, then stuff
Rnd 9: sc, 2tog (10) and fasten off

Arms (x2):
Use skin color and 2.50 mm hook
Rnd 1: Magic Loop 3
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (6)
Rnd 3: sc 6
Rnd 4: sc, 2sc in next st (9)
Rnd 5: 2tog and leave a tail

Legs (x2):
Use skin color and 2.50 mm hook
Rnd 1: Magic Loop 4
Rnd 2: 2sc in each st (8)
Rnd 3: sc 8
Rnd 4: sc, 2sc in next st (12)
Rnd 5: 2tog and leave a tail

Ears (x2):
Use skin color and 2.50 mm hook
Chain 3, Ch1 and turn, 2sc in 1st chain from hook, sc in 3rd chain from hook

Wings (x2):
Use Loops & Threads “Snuggly Wuggly” yarn and 3.0 mm hook
Chain 3, chain 1 and turn, sc in 1st chain from hook, sc in 3rd chain from hook.
Sc 2, 2sc in next 2 st, sc 2. Chain 1 and turn.
Sc3, 2sc in next 2 st, sc until end. Chain and turn.
Sc 4, 2sc in next sc, 4sc in next st, chain 3.
By now the wing should look like a triangle. From here sc in the stitch in the end of the corner opposite from your hook. Then chain, fasten off. Leave a long tail if you plan on sewing the wings to the body instead of hot glue.

Assembly: Before completing the head, attach the wig cap, eyes, and ears. After the body is done, attach the arms and legs, I didn’t stuff my legs or arms but they can be if you wish. Finish stuff ing the body. Using felt, cut out different sized flower petals. First I sewed them together, then sewed them around her body so they’d stay in  place. Next cut a thin strip of felt to be used as the top of her dress. Make sure it is thick enough to cover the stitches that attached the skirt to her body. Hot glue or sew the strip on. Use black and white felt to make her eyes, or size 6mm black plastic eyes. Glue the wings to her back, along with any other decorative items. Alternative Doll: After finishing the arms/legs, after the last 2tog start chaining off the top. This will make her arms very long and thin, if you want that kind of look 😉

There you have it, your own tiny fairy. Or if you want an already made Alvarie, she’s available at my Etsy shop.
Happy Crocheting!
