Phantom of the Opera Mini Amigurumi

Crochet Phantom of the Opera Dolls Phantom Mini Amigurumi

“Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in to the power of the music of the night.”

-Phantom of the Opera-

My love of musicals is no secret. But perhaps the very first musical I fell in love with was Phantom of the Opera. After making the mini Elphaba and Glinda amigurumi dolls, it really is no surprise that I wanted to make a Phantom and Christine to add to the musical ami collection!

Follow the pattern directions below to make a mini Phantom amigurumi of your very own. Missing the pattern for Christine? You can find her pattern here.

Phantom of the Opera

Mini Amigurumi Pattern

Skill Level: Easy +

Difficulty -EasyPlus

Materials Needed:

  • Size D/3.25mm hook
  • Plastic safety eyes, 6mm (2 per doll)
  • Worsted- or aran-weight yarn in: skin tone, black, and white
  • Polyester fiberfill stuffing (available at most craft stores)

Important Pattern Note:

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!


Mask

Row 3) Turn and ch 1. 5 sc. (5)

Row 4) Turn and ch 1. sc dec, 3 dc in next st, sc dec. (5)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

 

Head

Rnd 1) In SKIN TONE, 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* – repeat 6 times. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 3) *sc inc, sc* – repeat 6 times. Join and ch 1. (18)

Rnds 4-7) 18 sc. Join and ch 1. (18)

Insert the doll’s left eye into the 8th stitch of round 5.

Now, take the right eye and place it between the 3rd and 4th stitch of row 3 of the mask piece. Do not place the washer on the back of the eye yet!

With the eye threaded through the mask, push the remainder of the eye “post” through the 12th stitch of round 5 of the doll’s head (this will effectively make the eyes 3 full stitches apart from each other).

Place the washer on the back side of the eye “post”. You’ll have enough room, but it will be a tight fit. Push hard until it clicks onto the first notch of the “post”. If you can, continue to push the washer on further. If not, one notch should suffice.

Continue to work the rest of the head.

Rnd 8) *sc dec, sc* – repeat 6 times. Join and ch 1. (12)

Carefully stuff the head, but do not overstuff!

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 hair piece to the doll’s head. If desired, use a strand of BLACK yarn and a yarn needle to embroider some sideburns onto the doll’s face. See photos below.

Use the tail ends of the yarn and a yarn needle to sew the mask the rest of the way onto the doll’s face.

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

If desired, use a yarn needle and a strand of BLACK thread to embroider three tiny “buttons” onto the doll’s shirt – french knots work great for this, if you know how to make them! Need a tutorial? Check out this one!

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

Weave in all ends.
