How to Crochet Eyes Tutorial Free pattern
This Crochet Pattern is for dolls. Instead of stitching eyes on the crochet doll you can use this pattern and attach eyes you have crochet. Depending on the size of your doll you can either use the number of sc used in this pattern or you can half it for smaller size. You can also create smaller doll eyes by using smaller crochet hook.
Crochet hook size 2.5.
Crochet yarn color black, light blue, white and same color as your doll.
