Cinderella Crochet Pattern
Cinderella's dearest wish comes true with this crochet amigurumi pattern. She wears a blue dress decorated with silver moons and stars, and crystal slippers made of silver metallic yarn. Any little girl will love carrying her around in her own little horse and buggy. Small amounts of yellow or gold hair will certainly scream Cinderella, but you can easily use a different color to make a mini-me type. This is an easy crochet pattern you don't want to miss out on.
