Hermione Granger Mini Amigurumi

Crochet Hermione Granger Doll Harry Potter Mini Amigurumi

Oh honestly, don’t you two read?”

-Hermione Granger-

As a young girl growing up – always awkward, frizzy hair, decent student – I definitely related to Hermione Granger. She taught me that it was okay to strive to be the best and to not let anyone’s opinion bother you.

To this day, Hermione remains one of my all-time favorite literary characters. She’s smart, collected, and has such a loving heart – what’s not to love about that?

Of course I had to make her for this pattern set (I mean, really, where would Harry and Ron be if not for her?).

Make your own Hermione Granger 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.

Sew the bottom/hidden hair piece to the doll’s head. Try sewing it to rnd 4 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).

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

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

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.
