Pattern Notes

Color changes in this pattern are made using the last pull through method.  For a video tutorial on this check out this video from Tamara Kelly at Moogly.  This pattern is worked in a spiral.  Use stitch markers to keep track of the “rounds”.  Weave in ends as you go.  This pattern utilizes the tapestry crochet method for the torso section, which is just a fancy way of saying “crochet around the inactive yarn so that it is hidden inside of the crochets of the active yarn”.

Torso
In this section, you will be joining the legs, working the torso, and then attaching the arms towards the end.  You may want to use stitch markers to keep track of the chains and stitches in the first 2 rounds of this section.

R1. line up the legs so that the side where you changed colors is in the back, then begin crocheting around leg 1 by placing 1sc in each st around, place 1sc in each top loop only of the ch2 that was made at the end of leg 2, 1sc in each st around leg 2 (28 – 12 sts from each leg, the ch2 will count as 4 sts) 20171101_211935

R2. 1sc in each of the bottom loops from the ch2 that was made at the end of leg 2, continue with 1sc in each st around (28)

R3-5. 1sc in each st around (28)

For the color change in the next row, I just let the blue yarn hang back until I pick it up again in R8 at which point you will begin tapestry crochet.

R6. 1sc in each of the first 16 sts, color change to red, 1sc in each of the last 12 sts (28)

R7. 1sc in each st around (28)

For the color changes in the rest of this section, you will tapestry crochet around the inactive yarn so that it can be picked up when needed.

R9. color change to red, 1sc in each of the next 5 sts, color change to blue, 1sc in each of the last 23 sts (28)

When working the decreases in the tapestry crochet sections, just let the inactive yarn pass behind the decreased stitches, then pick it up again after the decrease is made.

This next part is where we will be attaching the arms.

 

 

 

R20. 1sc in each of the first 12 sts, hold one arm up to the active row (be sure to place the side of the arm where the color changes were made against the side of the body) and place 1 sc into the next st making sure to start by inserting your hook through the 2 loops on the outside of the arm, then through the 2 loops on the inside of the arm, then through the 2 loops in the torso, yarn over, and draw through all 6 loops, then yarn over and draw through the last 2 loops.  You will do one more crochet this way in the next st to complete this round (14)

R21. continue attaching arm with 4 more single crochets as described in the previous round, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, attach second arm with 1 sc in each of the next 6 sts, 1 sc in each of the last 2 sts (14)

R20. *sc2tog, 1sc in the next st*, repeat *to* around (16)
R21. *sc2tog*, repeat *to* around (8)

Cut red yarn leaving about a 10 inch tail and fasten off.  Thread this tail onto your yarn needle and whipstitch through the top loop of all 8 sts, then pull to tighten and close up the hole.  Insert the yarn needle through the middle of the top of the head and bring it out of the back of the head, then weave it in to secure it and cut off any excess yarn.

Eyes: Thread a 20 inch length of white yarn onto your yarn needle and insert into the back of the head, bring out at point A, *insert into point B, bring out of point A again*, repeat *to* two more times, insert at point C, bring out at point A, insert at point C again, bring out at point E, insert at point D, bring out at point E, insert at point D, bring it out of the back at the same place you first inserted your needle and yarn.  Finish by gently tying the two tails together, cut excess yarn lengths, and tuck the knot into the head to hide it. Repeat this process in reflection to create the second eye.spider man eye

Thread a 20-inch length of black yarn onto your yarn needle and insert into the side of the head, bring out at point A, *insert into point B, bring out of point A again, insert at point F (just below point D), bring out at point B, insert at point F*, bring it out at point A on the opposite eye, working on second eye repeat *to*, finish by bringing the needle out at the side of the head where you first inserted the black yarn.  Gently tie the two tails together, cut excess yarn lengths, and tuck the knot into the head to hide it.

Feet & Hand Webbing Detail: Thread 30-inch length of black yarn onto your yarn needle and insert into the blue area on the back of the leg and bring it out at point A.  Be sure to leave a short tail hanging out which will be used to tie off later.20180501_193549footwebdetail

Note: In the diagram on the right, the blue line and point C are on the opposite side of the line that goes from point A to D.

Insert the yarn needle at point B, bring the needle out at point A.

Insert at point C, out at point A.

Insert at point D, out at point A.

Insert at point E, bring it out of the back at the same place you first inserted your needle and yarn.  Finish by gently tying the two tails together, cut excess yarn lengths, and tuck the knot into the leg to hide it.  Repeat process for other leg and both hands.

To create the zigzag shape around the hands and feet: Thread a 20-inch length of black yarn onto your yarn needle.  Insert into the blue area on the back of the leg above point C (be sure to leave a short tail hanging out to tie off with at the end).

Begin embroidering a back stitch in a zigzag fashion as indicated in the above photo.  This method is more thoroughly explained in The Flash pattern here. Or, you can check out this video tutorial of the back stitch by Amanda from 3and3quarters.

Once you get all the way around you may find that one zigzag will need to be longer in order to connect to the starting point and that’s okay.  Finish by bringing your needle out in the same spot where you first inserted and gently tie the two tails together to secure, then cut excess lengths of yarn and tuck the knot inside of arm to hide it.

Chest spider detail:
(In this section there there are a couple of parts where your active stitch will cross over a stitch that was already created, when this happens be sure to place your active stitch behind the stitch that was already there)  Thread a 30-inch length of black yarn onto your yarn needle. Insert into the back, come out at point A (be sure to leave a short tail hanging out to tie off with at the end).

Insert at point B, out at point A 

In at point B again, out at point A again

In at point B, out at point C
In at point D, out at point E
In at point F, out at point D
In at point F, out at point G

In at H, out at I
In at J, out at K
In at L, out at M
In at J, out at K
In at N, out at O
In at L, out at P
In at Q, out at R
In at S, out through the back in the same spot where you first inserted.  Gently tie the two tails together to secure, cut excess lengths of yarn and tuck the knot inside of arm to hide it.

Head Webbing Details:  Thread a 40-inch length of black yarn onto your yarn needle and insert into the side of the head (be sure to leave a short tail hanging out to tie off with at the end); and using the same methods as in the feet and hand webbing details section begin to embroider the lines around the head.  (Use the photos below as a guide)

 

 

Once the lines are complete, use the zigzag back stitch method embroider the zigzags around the front and back of the head.

If you happen to use up the original length of yarn while embroidering the head webbing details, then go ahead and tie off and secure the knot as in the previous embroidery sections and continue with a new length of yarn.
