Method

harry potter crochet doll

Body

Legs

Stuff as you go.

Begin with black.

Stuff legs lightly as you go.

Round 1: 6 SC into a magic circle (6)

Change to dark grey

Round 2: SC around in BLO (6)

Round 3-6 (4 rounds): SC around (6).

Fasten off. Make sure that you’ve pulled the magic circle tight so that stuffing doesn’t escape from it.

Repeat rounds 1-6 for the second leg but don’t fasten off.

Body

Stuff as you go. Now we will begin joining the legs.

Round 7: Chain 2 and SC in the next unworked stitch of the first leg. Place a stitch marker in this stitch to mark the start of your round. SC in the remaining 5 stitches of the first leg until you reach the chain, SC in each of the 2 chains, SC in the 6 stitches of the next leg, and SC on the other side of each of the two chains until you reach your stitch marker. (16)

Round 8: SC in each stitch around (16)

Change to light grey.

Round 9: SC in each stitch around (16)

Round 10:SC in each stitch in BLO (16)

Round 11-12 (2 rounds): SC in each stitch around (16)

Round 13: (2 SC, INV DEC) four times (12)

Head

Round 17: (SC, INC) six times (18)

Round 18: (2 SC, INC) six times (24)

Round 19-23 (5 rounds): SC in each stitch around (24)

Harry Potter eye placement

If you’re using safety eyes, place them between Rounds 20 and 21, four stitches apart. Reinsert the eyes and put the washer firmly on the back.

Ensure that you have stuffed the body well, especially the neck. I use the back of a scissor to get the stuffing in but you can use anything small enough to really push the stuffing in to ensure that the neck is firm! Continue stuffing the head.

Round 24: (2 SC, INV DEC) six times (18)

Round 25: (SC, INV DEC) six times (12)

Ensure that you have stuffed the head well.

Round 26: INV DEC six times (6)

Fasten off and leave a long tail to embroider the nose and ears. Insert needle in front loop of each stitch and pull tight to close.

Arms (make 2)

The arms are made of small tubes, which can sometimes be tricky to make. Planet June has a great tutorial on making these thin tubes here.

Do not stuff

Begin with skin colour.

Round 1: 4 SC into a magic circle (4)

Change to light grey.

Round 2-6 (5 rounds):  SC around (4)

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew onto the body between Round 13 and 14.

Hair cap & Embroidery

Using black yarn.

Round 1: 6 SC into a magic circle

Round 2: INC in each stitch around (12)

Round 3: (SC, INC) six times (18)

Round 4: (2 SC, INC) six times (24)

Round 5-7 (3 rounds): SC around (24)

Round 8: The hair cap instructions for this round can be confusing so I’m going to break them down into sections. Please note that the next section of bullet points are all for Round 8 of the hair cap:

  • First we will begin by making the first of the three bangs in the front of the head: Chain 5, starting from the second chain on the hook, 4 SC back down the chain. SC to the next SC in the hair cap.
  •  1 SC
  •  Now we will make the next two bangs: *Chain 5, starting from the second chain on the hook, 4 SC back down the chain. SC to the next SC in the hair cap. * Repeat the part between ** for a total of 2 times.
  • 20 SC.
  • Slip stitch into the first stitch of this Round.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Harry Potter - pin hair before sewing

Pin your hair cap onto your Harry Potter crochet doll.

The space between the first and second bangs is where you will embroider on the lightening bolt scar.

Embroider on the nose one row below the eyes and the mouth about a row below the nose.

Embroider on Harry’s ears, glasses and lightening bolt scar. I make the ears about three stitches from the eyes and they are made by passing the yarn over two stitches, vertically. You may need to adjust this based on how your hair cap is placed.

Once you have embroidered on all the features, sew the hair cap in place.Put one stitch into each of the bangs while you are sewing to keep them in place. 

Cloak

Note: The body of the cloak is worked in rows and the turning chains at the start of each row do not count as stitches.

cloak and scarf

Using black yarn.

Row 1: Chain 17. Starting from the second chain from the hook, 16 SC. Turn. (16)

Row 2: Chain 1. 2 SC, 3 SC in the next stitch, 2 SC, 3 SC in the next stitch, 4 SC, 3 SC in the next stitch, 2 SC, 3 SC in the next stitch, 2 SC. Turn. (24)

Row 3: Chain 1. 5 SC, Chain 4, Skip the next 4 stitches, 6 SC, Chain 4, Skip the next 4 stitches, 5 SC.

Row 4: Chain 2. 5 HDC; 4 HDC (one in each of the 4 chains from the previous row); 6 HDC, 4 HDC (one in each of the 4 chains from the previous row); 5 HDC. Turn. (24)

Row 5-8 (4 rows): Chain 2. HDC in each stitch (24)

Fasten off. Now we will make the sleeves.

Sleeves

Attach black yarn to the first armhole of your cloak (in the chain space from Row 3).

The sleeves are worked in joined rounds.

Round 1: 10 SC around the armhole, evenly spaced. Sl st to the first SC. (10)

Round 2-3: Chain 1. SC in each stitch around (10). Sl st to the first SC of the round

Fasten off. Now repeat for the second sleeve. Weave in the ends.

Gryffindor Scarf

The scarf is worked in rows and the turning chains at the start of each row do not count as stitches.

Note: When making the scarf, I just pull the new colour up when making a colour change because it would be too many ends to weave in! When putting the scarf on your doll, you can place it so that colour changes are on the back and cannot be seen.

Begin with red yarn.

Row 1: Chain 5. Starting from the third chain from the hook, 3 HDC. Turn.

Row 2: Chain 2, 3 HDC. Turn.

Change to yellow

Row 3-4: Chain 2, 3 HDC. Turn.

Change to red

Row 5-6: Chain 2, 3 HDC. Turn.

Change to yellow

Repeat Rows 3-6 until the scarf is the length that you want. I did a total of 42 rows (or 21 blocks of colour, beginning and ending with red). Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Now dress your Harry Potter crochet doll in its cloak and scarf. If you like, sew the scarf around the neck so that it stays in place. Or, if you would prefer it removable, you could sew a button on the back to hold it in place.
