Nurse Marilyn (8 cm)

The stereotype of a nurse (for probably anyone who hasn’t worked in a hospital): blond and slightly slutty. The crochet pattern for your very own amigurumi nurse is suitable for beginners and takes about 4 hours to make (the most time goes on the hair). The final lady has appr. 8 cm height incl. the bonnet.

What do you need:


  • a skin- resp. white-coloured yarn at a recommended hook size of 2.0-3.0 (e.g. Cotone or Cotone fine) for the body resp. bonnet
  • a white-coloured yarn for the suit at a recommended hook size of 2.0-2.5 or finer (e.g. Cotone fine or a Diana of size 5). Overall, the yarn for the dress should have a lace or super fine weight, otherwise the dress will end up being too bulky
  • a piece of red yarn for the cross on the bonnet
  • a bouclé yarn for the hair
  • a pair of safety eyes at 6 mm
  • a scissor
  • some wadding
  • a fine darning needle
  • in case of different yarn weights, two crochet hooks: one for the thicker yarn (preferably 2.0 mm), one for the finer yarn (1.5 mm or less)

Skill level: beginner
