Iron Man Mini Amigurumi

Okay, have you seen Avengers: Infinity War yet? No? Don’t worry–I won’t share any spoilers here. (But seriously, go see it!)

To celebrate the release of the latest Avengers movie, I decided to make Iron Man and Thor as the April dolls for the Mystery Ami CAL. One Iron Man is never enough, so naturally I made two different Iron Man designs!

Now, the doll in this pattern was my original Iron Man design. After I’d finished making him, I decided that I wanted to make him with his mask instead, so that’s the pattern that was designed for the Mystery Ami CAL.

If you’d like to check out the other pattern for Iron Man with his mask, click here.

Below, you’ll find the pattern for Iron Man without his mask. I think he looks pretty good without it, don’t you? Also included with this pattern is a list of all of the materials and tools you’ll need to make this doll AND a stitch guide that talks about the stitches used in this pattern.

Note: This pattern is almost completely the same as the one with the mask–the only difference is in the head!

Iron Man 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 RED and cut the BEIGE yarn. Join and ch 1. (6)

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

 

Torso

Rnd 11) In RED, *sc inc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 12) *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. (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 RED, 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 RED, 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.

 

Hair

Rnd 1) In CHOCOLATE, 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 4‐6) 21 sc. Join and ch 1. (21)

TIP: Try this hair piece on the doll as you go. If at round 4 (or 5) you think that the hair piece fits okay, skip round 5 (or 6) and continue. Depending on your tension, your hair piece may be too long if you complete all of rounds 4-6. Skipping one or two rounds will shorten the piece.

Rnd 7) 7 sc, hdc, 3 dc inc, hdc, sl st, hdc, 7 sc. Fasten off. (24)

Use the tail ends of the yarn and a yarn needle to carefully sew the hair piece onto the doll’s head, being careful to work your stitches behind the “bangs” (rnd 7). Weave in ends.

 

Arms (Make 2)

Rnd 1) In RED, 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.

 

Chest Piece

Rnd 1) In WHITE, ch 3. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, work a sc dec. Fasten off, leaving a tail long enough of sewing/weaving. (1)

Finishing

Use the tail ends of your yarn and a yarn needle to sew the chest piece to the doll’s chest.

Cut a strand (about 8″) of CHOCOLATE yarn. Use your yarn needle and this strand of yarn to embroider on the doll’s eyebrows and facial hair, including sideburns!

Now cut a long strand (about 12″) of MUSTARD yarn and embroider on the gold armor details. See photos for placement if necessary.

Above: photos from the Iron Man w/ Mask pattern that show the armor stitches in more detail!

If desired, cut a strand of SILVER BLUE and embroider “booster/blaster” details onto the palms of the doll’s hands (and feet, if you’d like!).

Weave in all ends and trim any excess yarn.
