Wasp Mini Amigurumi

I’ve been a big fan of Evangeline Lily since Lost, but I had the joy of falling in love with her again in Marvel’s recent superhero release Ant-Man and the Wasp. She was so great in that movie, and I think she makes a fantastic superhero as the Wasp!

Of course, I just had to make a Wasp doll of my very own! (I also made an Ant-Man doll for my collection, but that’s a different story). I made my Wasp doll with wings that cleverly fold away in the back, too, but you can either make the wings or leave them off. Or, if you’re super crafty, you can find a way to make them removable by using Velcro or something similar!

You can find a detailed pattern for Wasp further down this page, as well as a stitch guide and list of required materials. To see more about Ant-Man, click here.

Stitch Guide

You will need to know a few different types of stitches in order to make these dolls. Below is a guide to help you with the abbreviations of the terms and stitches used in these doll patterns (written in US terms).

sl st = slip stitch

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

hdc = half-double crochet

inc = increase

dec = decrease


Wasp Pattern

Head

Rnd 1) In NAVY, 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* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 3) *sc inc, sc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (18)

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

Rnd 8) *sc dec, sc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Carefully stuff the head, but do not overstuff!

Rnd 9) *sc dec* x 6. Join and ch 1. (6)

Rnd 10) 6 sc. Join and ch 1. (6)

 

Torso

Rnd 11) *sc inc* x 6. Join and ch 1. (12)

Rnd 12) *sc inc, 3 sc* x 3. Join and ch 1. (15)

At this point, you’ll be working in two colors simultaneously by working over the inactive color (the color you aren’t currently using) with the active color (the color you are using). This technique is often refered to as Tapestry Crochet.

For example, you’ll be working first with NAVY for some stitches, then with CHARCOAL GREY over the NAVY, then switching back to CHARCOAL GREY. Trap the inactive color beneath your active color by crocheting over it, trapping it beneath the stitches of your active color.

Rnd 13) 5 NAVY sc, 2 CHARCOAL GREY sc, 1 NAVY sc, 2 CHARCOAL GREY sc, 5 NAVY sc. Join and ch 1. (15)

Rnd 14) 6 NAVY sc, 3 CHARCOAL GREY sc, 6 NAVY sc. Join and ch 1. (15)

Rnd 15) 6 NAVY sc, 3 CHARCOAL GREY sc, 6 NAVY sc. Join and ch 1. (15)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s torso, but leave room for you to work the stitches for the beginning of the legs–you can also stuff what’s left of the torso when you stuff your doll’s legs!

 

Leg #1

Insert your hook into the back center-most stitch of round 15 of the body. With NAVY, ch 1.

Rnd 1) 8 sc. Join to the 1st sc of the round and ch 1. (8)

Rnds 2-3) 8 sc. Join and ch 1. (8)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s leg.

Rnd 4) *sc dec* x 4. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving.

 

Leg #2

Insert your hook into the 8th sc of round 15 of the body (this is the same stitch in which you worked the last sc of rnd 1 of leg #1). With NAVY, ch 1.

Rnd 1) 8 sc. Join to the 1st sc of the round and ch 1. (8)

Rnds 2-3) 8 sc. Join and ch 1. (8)

Insert some stuffing into your doll’s leg.

Rnd 4) *sc dec* x 4. Join and fasten off, leaving a tail long enough for weaving.

 

Finishing the Legs

After you’ve made your doll’s legs, you’ll probably notice a small gap between them where they should be joined. Use the tail ends of your yarn and a yarn needle to stitch any opening between the legs closed. Weave in ends.

If you see any opening at the base of the doll’s feet, you can use the tail ends of your yarn and a yarn needle to stitch that opening closed as well, then weave in your ends.

 

Arms (Make 2)

Rnd 1) In NAVY, make a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and work 5 sc in the center of the Magic Circle. Change to CHARCOAL GREY. Join to the beginning sc of the round and ch 1. (5)

Rnd 2) In CHARCOAL GREY, 5 sc. Change to NAVY. Join and ch 1. (5)

Rnd 3) In NAVY, 5 sc. Join and ch 1. (5)

Rnd 4) 5 sc. Change to CHARCOAL GREY. Join and ch 1. (5)

Rnd 5) In CHARCOAL GREY, 5 sc. Join and fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. (5)

Weave in all ends of your doll’s arms by pulling them through the length of the arm, then trim. Do this for all of the tail ends for the arms EXCEPT for the long tails that you left for sewing.

Using the long tail that’s left, sew the opening at the top (“shoulder”) of the doll’s arm shut so that it is basically sewn flat across. Then sewn the arms to round 11 of the doll’s body so that the now flat part of the doll’s arm lays nice and flat against the doll’s body. Repeat for the second arm.

 

Eye Mask/Lenses (Make 2)

Row 1) In HONEY, ch 3. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, work 1 hdc, then sl st in the next stitch. Fasten off.

 

Antennae (Make 2)

Row 2) Continuing where you left off, chain 3. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, work 2 sc back down the chain toward the Magic Circle.

Join to the edge of the Magic Circle with a slip stitch. Fasten off.

Next, work the following along the circle’s edge: sc, ch 1, then sc in the next st on the circle’s edge to make a small “point” or picot. Now you’re ready to begin the 2nd “branch” of the top mask piece.

Continuing from where you left off, ch 7. Starting in the 2nd chain space from the hook, work 2 sl st, 3 sc, then hdc in last chain space. Join to the Magic Circle with a sl st. (6)

Finishing

Carefully sew the eye pieces to the face so that the “points” (that were formed by the slip stitches of each piece) face inwards towards each other.

Using the tail ends of the yarn and a yarn needle, carefully sew the top and bottom mask pieces to the doll’s head/helmet.

Cut a strand of CHARCOAL GREY yarn about 6″ long and carefully embroider a small “x” onto the mouth piece.

Carefully sew the antennae to the sides of the doll’s head/helmet so that the points line up just over the top of the doll’s head. See photos for placement reference if necessary.

Cut a strand of CHARCOAL GREY yarn about 6″ long and embroider a simple line around the doll’s waist to act as a belt. See photos for reference if necessary.

Use the tail ends of the yarn and a needle to sew the wings to the doll’s back. Start with the top wings and then sew on the bottom wings. If desired, you can stitch them on as far long the back as possible, or just make a few stitches and let the wings be a little more “free”–this way, you can even fold the wings up if you want!

Cut a strand of SCARLET yarn about 6″ long and embroider the red marks on the doll’s belt line, arms, and chest. See photos for reference if necessary.

Cut a strand of CHARCOAL GREY yarn about 6″ long and embroider the wide “V” shape onto the doll’s chest below the red mark on the chest. See photos for reference if necessary.

Weave in all ends and trim any excess yarn.
