“Some say he died. Codswallop, in my opinion. Dunno if he had enough human left in him to die.”
-Hagrid talking to Harry about Voldemort-
Every story needs a villain, and Voldemort was a perfect villain: a vague and scary idea turned into a very real and present danger. Naturally, I had to include my very own evil mini Voldemort doll in the mini HP amigurumi pattern set!
I’m hoping to take some proper photos of Voldy here (and a few other dolls!) over the next few days, so I hope you can make do with these less-than-ideal photos. Please let me know if you have any questions!
You can use this pattern to make your very own He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named ami doll. Craft at your own risk!
Mini Amigurumi Pattern
Skill Level: Easy +
- Size D/3.25mm hook
- Plastic safety eyes, 6mm (2 per doll)–in red if you can find them, or see my pattern note below on painting your own!
- Worsted- or aran-weight yarn in: pale skin tone and black
- Polyester fiberfill stuffing (available at most craft stores)
Important Pattern Notes:
If desired, you can work these patterns in continuous rounds, rather than joining. The instructions are written for joining, but feel free to use the method you are most comfortable with!
You’ll notice in the photos that Voldy’s eyes here are red. To make this happen, I very carefully painted over my black safety eyes with bright red nail polish. It took a few coats and a little bit of time to dry, but the end result is just perfect!
