Captain Marvel Mini Amigurumi

Captain marvel amigurumi (1).png

I’ve been excited for the new Captain Marvel movie ever since I heard rumors about it floating around the internet, and I am so excited to see it!

To celebrate this amazing character getting her own movie, I naturally had to make one of my signature amigurumi versions of this iconic Marvel character…and here she is!

This Captain Marvel doll features gorgeous stitch details on her body armor, including that signature star at the front. I love the way this gold embroidery thread shimmers and shines! Unfortunately, I bought this thread ages ago from a local shop that no longer sells it, and I’m afraid I can’t tell you which brand it is or even its weight–however, I can tell you that it’s very shiny, sheds a tiny bit when working with it, and that it is close to a dk weight yarn in thickness. Regular embroidery thread will work fine instead, but you may want to double-up your stands; gold yarn will also work.

Below, you’ll find the full pattern for Captain Marvel, including a list of required materials AND a stitch guide that talks about the stitches used in this pattern.

Whenever you’re ready to start making your own Captain Marvel doll, simply scroll down and follow the pattern! Don’t forget to pin this pattern to your Pinterest board so you can save it for later!

Captain Marvel Mini Amigurumi Pattern

Head

Rnd 1) In BEIGE, make a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and work 6 sc in the center of the Magic Circle. Join to the beginning sc of the round and ch 1. (6)

Rnd 2) *sc inc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 3) *sc inc, sc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (18)

Rnds 4-7) 18 sc. Join and ch 1. (18)

Insert the eyes into the 8th and 12th stitches of round 5, so that there are 3 sc stitches
between the eyes.

Rnd 8) *sc dec, sc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Carefully stuff the head, but do not overstuff!

Rnd 9) *sc dec* x 6. Change to CRANBERRY and cut the BEIGE yarn. Join and ch 1. (6)

Rnd 10) In CRANBERRY, 6 sc. Join and ch 1. (6)

 

Torso

Rnd 11) *sc inc* x 6. Change to COLONIAL BLUE and cut the CRANBERRY yarn. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 12) In COLONIAL BLUE, *sc inc, 3 sc* – repeat 3 times. Join and ch 1. (15)

Rnds 13-15) 15 sc. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving. Cut the COLONIAL BLUE yarn. (14)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s torso, but leave room for you to work the stitches for the beginning of the legs–you can also stuff what’s left of the torso when you stuff your doll’s legs!

 

Leg #1

Insert your hook into the back center-most stitch of round 15 of the body. With COLONIAL BLUE, ch 1.

Rnd 1) 8 sc. Join to the 1st sc of the round and ch 1. (8)

Rnds 2-3) 8 sc. Join and ch 1. (8)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s leg.

Rnd 4) *sc dec* x 4. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving.

 

Leg #2

Insert your hook into the 8th sc of round 15 of the body (this is the same stitch in which you worked the last sc of rnd 1 of leg #1). With COLONIAL BLUE, ch 1.

Rnd 1) 8 sc. Join to the 1st sc of the round and ch 1. (8)

Rnds 2-3) 8 sc. Join and ch 1. (8)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s leg.

Rnd 4) *sc dec* x 4. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving.

 

Finishing the Legs

After you’ve made your doll’s legs, you’ll probably notice a small gap between them where they should be joined. Use the tail ends of your yarn and a yarn needle to stitch any opening between the legs closed. Weave in ends.

If you see any opening at the base of the doll’s feet, you can use the tail ends of your yarn and a yarn needle to stitch that opening closed as well, then weave in your ends.

 

Arms (Make 2)

Rnd 1) In CRANBERRY, make a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and work 6 sc in the center of the Magic Circle. Join to the beginning sc of the round and ch 1. (6)

Rnds 2-4) 6 sc. Join and ch 1. (6)

Rnd 5) 6 sc. Join and fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. (6)

Weave in all ends of your doll’s arms by pulling them through the length of the arm, then trim. Do this for all of the tail ends for the arms EXCEPT for the long tails that you left for sewing.

Using the long tail that’s left, sew the opening at the top (“shoulder”) of the doll’s arm shut so that it is basically sewn flat across. Then sewn the arms to round 11 of the doll’s body so that the now flat part of the doll’s arm lays nice and flat against the doll’s body. Repeat for the second arm.

Hair – Bottom (Hidden) Piece

Note: When joining to Round 2, make sure to place your first slip stitch in the stitch right next to the chain—not the same stitch as where the chain started. Then place your second slip stitch in the next stitch. Then start your next chain.

Row 1) In MUSTARD, ch 13. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, 12 sc. Turn and ch 1. (12)

Row 2) 12 sc. Do not turn and ch 1, but continue as written below.

At this point, you will be creating six medium-length chains that will fall down the doll’s
shoulders and back.

Row 3 – 1st “chain”) Continuing from row 2, ch 7. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, 6 sc. Join to row 2 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the chain. Sl st in the next st. Continue to next “chain”. (6)

Row 3 – 2nd “chain”) Continuing from row 2, ch 11. Starting in the 2nd chain space from
the hook, 10 sc. Join to row 2 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the
chain. Sl st in the next st. Continue to next “chain”. (10)

Row 3 – 4th “chain”) Continuing from row 2, ch 11. Starting in the 2nd chain space from
the hook, 10 sc. Join to row 2 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the

Row 3 – 5th “chain”) Continuing from row 2, ch 11. Starting in the 2nd chain space from
the hook, 10 sc. Join to row 2 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the
chain. Sl st in the next st. Continue to next “chain”. (10)

Row 3 – 6th “chain”) Continuing from row 2, ch 7. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, 6 sc. Join to row 2 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the chain. (6)

Your “chains” are complete! To finish, simply fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for sewing/weaving. Cut the MUSTARD yarn.

 

Hair – Top Piece

Rnd 1) In MUSTARD, make a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and work 7 sc in the center of the Magic Circle. Join to the beginning sc of the round and ch 1. (7)

Rnd 2) *sc inc* – repeat 7 times. Join and ch 1. (14)

Rnd 3) *sc inc, sc* – repeat 7 times. Join and ch 1. (21)

Rnds 4-5) 21 sc. Join and ch 1. (21)

At this point, you will be working back and forth, creating an opening for the doll’s face.

Row 6) 12 sc. Ch 1 and turn. (12)

Row 7) 12 sc. Do not ch 1 and turn! (12)

At this point, you will be creating six short chains that will fall down the doll’s shoulders and back.

Row 8 – 1st “chain”) Continuing from row 7, ch 4. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, 3 sc. Join to row 7 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the chain. Sl st in the next st. Continue to next “chain”. (3)

7 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the chain. Sl st in next st.
Continue to next “chain”. (6)

Row 8 – 4th “chain”) Ch 7. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, 6 sc. Join to row
7 with a sl st in the stitch that is right next to the start of the chain. Sl st in next st.

Your “chains” are complete! To finish, you will work the bangs. This will be stitched across the front of the hair piece:

Row 9) 3 sc up the side, sl st, sc, hdc, dc inc, 3 sc, sl st, 3 sc down the other side. Fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for sewing/weaving. (21) Cut the MUSTARD yarn.

Belt

Row 1) With CRANBERRY, ch 25. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, work 5 sl st. Ch 1, dc in next st, then ch 1. Starting with the next available stitch, work 12 sl st. Ch 1, dc in next st, then ch 1. Starting with the next available stitch, work 5 sl st. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. (24) Cut the CRANBERRY yarn.

 

Finishing

Sew the bottom/hidden hair piece to the doll’s head. Try sewing it to rnd 5 of the doll’s head, making sure the piece is centered along the back of the head.

Sew the top hair piece to the doll’s head (over the bottom/hidden hair piece).

img_7557

Use the tail ends of the yarn and a yarn needle to sew the belt to the doll’s torso.

Cut a strand of COLONIAL BLUE yarn and make a vertical stitch at the front of the doll’s neck; this gives the illusion of having a piece of the blue part of the uniform pop against the red.

Next, cut a strand of CRANBERRY yarn and stitch the red torso armor details onto the doll’s body.

Now cut a long strand of GOLD yarn/thread and embroider on the gold armor details, including the star on the doll’s chest. See photos for placement if necessary.

Use a yarn needle and a strand of TAUPE yarn to embroider on eyebrows.

Use a yarn needle and a strand of BLACK thread to embroider on eyelashes.

Weave in all ends and trim any excess yarn.

  1. Hi! Having just seen the movie, I was super excited to make this figurine. However, I just wanted to make you aware of some differences between the pattern and the pictures of your finished product. Color changes for the arms and legs are not mentioned in the pattern, but appear to be present in the pictures shown. I didn’t notice this until after I had completed arms and legs, so I will just be embroidering the colors over my stitches. I love your blog and just wanted to make sure you knew about the misprint!
