The Hulk Amigurumi

I am a huge fan of comic books, I always have been. I will admit that I liked DC more than Marvel before the recent rash of Marvel movies came out. I adore Robert Downey Jr. and for me, it started this fangirling that I haven’t been able to stop. With the recent release of the Avengers movie, I’ve been wanting to start making patterns out of the marvel heroes. I started with my favorite of the people in Avengers — The Hulk!

This pattern can be found on my Ravelry, but you can also view it here.

 

The Hulk Amigurumi

Materials needed:

U.S. G (4.25MM crochet hook)

Approximately 90yds of worsted weight yarn in green,

Approximately 10yds of scrap purple worsted weight yarn

pipe cleaner.

A small amount of poly-fill

Abbreviations:

sc: single crochet

sc2tog: single crochet two together (insert hook, pull up a loop, insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, draw through all three loops on hook)

sl st: slip stitch

Notes!: This pattern was inspired by the Princess Poppy doll pattern, but came from my love of the Hulk.

This crochet pattern is worked in continuous rounds, there are no joins or chains after each round, to minimize the seams. It is worked in seven pieces and sewn together.

This pattern is for personal use, if you want to sell what you have made using it, please contact me first.

The Pattern!:

The head:

Sc 8 in a magic loop.

Rnd 1: 2 SC in each stitch around

Rnd 2: *2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in each of the next two, repeat from * around

Rnds 3-10: 1 sc in each stitch around

Rnd 11: *sc2tog, sc in next 2 stitches, repeat from * around

Stuff head

Rnd 12: *sc2tog, sc in next stitch, repeat from * around

Rnd 13: sc2tog around, bind off, leaving a long tail for sewing onto the body.

Legs: (make two)

Ch 15, join with a sl st to make a ring.

Sc in each around for 10 rnds.

Rnd 11: sc2tog, sc in the next three stitches.

Rnd 12: sc2tog, sc in the next stitch

Rnd 13: sc2tog around

Arms: (make two)

Ch 15, join with a sl st to make a ring.

Sc in each around for 15 rnds.

Rnd 16: sc2tog, sc in the next three stitches.

Rnd 17: sc2tog, sc in the next stitch

Rnd 18: sc2tog around

Body:

Ch 16.

Row 1: sc in second stitch from hook and each st across, pop over into the other side of the chain and sc in each stitch on this side of the chain. There is a good tutorial for working both sides of the chain in amigurumi.
Rows 2-18: Sc in each stitch around.

Stuff the body + legs, and then sew them to one another. Don’t worry about the seam, we’re going to cover that up with the shorts.

Finishing the body:

If you want his arms to be posible, add a piece of a pipe cleaner into his arm when you stuff them. Sew these to the sides of your body piece, and then sew the head onto the top of the body.

For his eyes:

I used a very small piece of pipe cleaner bent into a U shape and inserted it over a crochet stitch at an angle to create his eyebrows. For the eyes, I took a piece of scrap black yarn and made a french embroidery knot just underneath the eyebrows. I didn’t make a mouth, but you can, if you want to.

Crocheting the shorts:

Legs: (make two)

Complete the first 5 rows of the leg pattern

Bind off the leg after the first 5 rows of sc.

Attach the yarn to the beginning of the leg and crochet a single row of SC around to hide any weird jogs you might have at the bottom. This step is important if you want it to look uniform all the way down the leg.

This part gets a little messy with crochet stitches. Attach the yarn to one of the tops of the legs, chain 1 and join with slip stitch to any sc on first leg. *Slip stitch in next sc around on sameleg, chain 1, then slip stitch to next sc on oppositeleg*, rep 3 times. (This is the same method used here in the legs +body section)

Begin single crocheting around the outside of the legs in a continuous spiral to create the top of the shorts until you have six rows around. Bind off, and leave a long tail for sewing.

Put the shorts onto the body and sew them on, to keep them from falling off.

Weave in ends, and enjoy!
