Harry Potter Mini Amigurumi

Crochet Harry Potter Doll Harry Potter Mini Amigurumi

“Messrs. Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs, offer their compliments to Professor Snape and…and request that he keep his abnormally large nose out of other people’s business.”

-Harry Potter-

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’d want to live in a time without the boy who lived and all of the magic that surrounds the wizarding world!

I’m definitely not the first person to say this, but here it goes: Harry Potter changed my life. The HP series was the first set of books that I truly fell in love with. I used to stay up reading them at night, hiding under the blankets or closed up in my closet with a flashlight, desperate for just one more chapter.

There is not much I love more in this world than Harry Potter. Naturally, I just had to make my very own HP mini ami set! And who better to start us off with than the boy who lived himself, am I right?

Make your own Harry Potter 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 GREY thread and a yarn needle to embroider on glasses, but make sure you don’t make them too big or else you won’t have room for the glasses and scar.

At this point, use a strand of BLACK yarn and a yarn needle to embroider eyebrows onto the doll. It will be easier to do this after you do the glasses.

Then use a strand of RED thread and yarn needle to embroider on the lightning bolt scar.

Take a strand of yarn each in RED and GOLD and a yarn needle and embroider on the Gryffindor house colors onto the neckline of the doll and along the hem of the doll’s shirt, too.

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

Weave in all ends.

  1. Hi. I had asked these questions on FB, but hadn’t heard back, so thought I’d put a comment here too in case it’s easier for you here :). Regarding Harry’s hair: as you originally suggested to me on FB, I’ve taken out Rnd 5, but the back of the hair still looks much longer on mine than it does on yours. Maybe I’m confused about Rnd 7 — does “3 dc inc” mean to put 2 dc in each of the next 3 stitches? Maybe I just can’t see the back of yours, but it doesn’t look like yours is that “long”. Yours looks more bowl-shaped. Shouldn’t Harry’s hair pattern be the same (except for the color) as the Ron’s and Draco’s? Final question, you’re supposed to join at the end, right? Thanks so much for your help! Usually I’m not this needy, really LOL

    1. Hi Bekki–apologize, someitmes I miss some comments on Facebook because it behaves strangely on my phone…

      If it’s still looking a little big, you could always take out row 6 as well and see how you like the fit of it then, but I think that may be too much. I don’t have a pic to share, but Harry’s hair piece covers pretty much all of the back of his head; instead of placing it right on top of his head, I tilt it back and use the extra length to cover the whole back of the head.

      Harry’s hair is a little different from Ron and Draco’s because I wanted to give him some bangs (which is why round 7 is different).

      When stitching the hair on, you can work your stitches behind round 7, and then use your fingers later to flip the bangs up a little bit and make them stand out–that will also help with the piece appearing too long!

      And yes, join at the end. I just realized I’d forgotten to say that in the patterns, so I’ll update that.

      I hope this information helps! Have a crafty day! ❤
