Albus Dumbledore Mini Amigurumi

Crochet Albus Dumbledore Doll Harry Potter Mini Amigurumi

“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

-Albus Dumbledore-

Whether or not you agree with the way he treated Harry, Albus Dumbledore was an undeniable accomplished wizard, most notably for his defeat of Gellert Grindelwald, the discovery of the twelve uses of dragon’s blood, and his work on alchemy with Nicolas Flamel.

He is regarded as one of the finest headmasters that Hogwarts ever had, and he also has some of the all-time best quotes out of any of the characters in the Harry Potter series.

Naturally, he had to be included in the mini HP ami set. Make your own Albus Dumbledore by following the pattern below!

Finishing Steps

Use a yarn needle and the tail ends of the yarn to carefully sew the arms onto the body between rounds 11 and 12. If desired, you can stitch the openings at the tops of the arms flat before sewing the arms to the body.

Carefully sew the hair piece to the doll’s head.

Use a strand of WHITE yarn and a yarn needle to embroider eyebrows onto the doll.

Take a strand of yarn in LIGHT PURPLE and embroider a simple line detail (using the back stitch) along the front sides and the collar of the doll’s robes. See photos for detail.

Place the robes on the doll, pull the arms through the sleeve holes. Then carefully sew the robes firmly onto the doll.

Use a strand of GREY thread and a yarn needle to embroider on glasses. See photos for detail.

Use a strand of SILVER thread and embroider the details onto the hat. See photos for detail. If desired, you can leave plain.

Cut a strand of SILVER thread and sew on the robe clasp detail to the front of the doll’s robes, joining the sides together with a very loose stitch. See photos for detail.

Very carefully, tie a strand of SILVER thread around the beard. See photos for details. If you want, start by tying the thread in a knot along the back side of the beard (where it will not be seen). Then, wrap the ends of the yarn several times around the beard. Tie the ends together again and trim.

Carefully sew the hat onto the doll’s head.

If desired, you can loosely attach a strand of SILVER thread to the body in the shape of a necklace. Start at one point along the jacket/collar, off to the side of the beard. Make a small stitch behind the beard and centered along the front of the doll. Then stitch back up opposite the first point. See photos for details of where the stitches were placed for this necklace on my Dumbledore doll.

Using the tail ends of the yarn and a yarn needle, carefully sew the beard onto the doll’s face. Make sure you place the “mustache” part carefully above the beard, leaving an opening where the mouth would be. If desired, you could embroider on a mouth, or leave blank as I did.

Weave in all ends.
