Wonder Woman Inspired Doll – OneLittleHook Superhero Series

wonder woman crochet pattern

Hi there maker friends!   I am so excited to share with you my Wonder Woman amigurumi crochet pattern!

I especially love this pattern because it features crocheted in pieces – no more frustrating head and limbs waiting to be sewn on!  Yeah!

The finished doll made according to this pattern is about 10 inches tall.  The headband and dress are removable, but can be sewn on if preferred.

Please see the pattern notes section for more details.

In this section, you will be joining the legs, then 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 and the ch2 will count as 4 sts)20171101_211935

This next part is where we will be attaching the arms.  Please see my Spider-Man post for a short pictorial of this process.

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 loop.  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)

Secure the active loop on a stitch marker and using the pink embroidery thread, embroider the lips at R8.  Using the same yarn as the skin tone, embroider the nose at R10.  Using the black, white, and blue embroidery thread, embroider the eyes at R11&12.  I used the method described in my Easy Peasy Eye Embroidery Tutorial.

Stuff the neck and head, add more stuffing as needed as you close up the head.

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

Cut sand castle 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.

Cut yarn, fasten off, weave in ends.

Skirt Section of Dress
Ch6 with the blue yarn
R1, 1hdc in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1hdc in each of the next 4 sts (5)
R2-17. ch1, turn, 1hdc in each st across (5)
Ch2, then 32dc border across the bottom

Sew skirt onto dress using sewing needle and sewing thread.  I recommend sewing the top of the skirt just inside the bottom yellow edge of the top half of the dress to help hide the seam.

Boot details:  Cut a 40-inch length of sunshine yarn and thread it onto your yarn needle.  Insert the needle in the middle of the back of the leg (be sure to leave a short tail hanging out for tying off later).  Bring the needle out in the center of the bottom of the boot (the middle of the 6sc made in R1 of the legs section).  Make 1 embroidery chain stitch. 20180727_193051

Make 1 long stitch to form a stripe up the front of the boot inserting the needle in between the sandcastle and red rows, bring needle out at the back of the leg. 

Make a round of surface crochet slip stitches around the top of the boot (use a smaller crochet hook, if needed).   Continue with another round of slip stitches going into the top loops only of the previous surface crochet chains.  Once you make it all of the way around fasten off.  To finish, insert the fastened off tail onto a yarn needle and and feed in under the red boot area bringing it out where the starting tail was left hanging.  Remove yarn needle, gently tie off, cut excess lengths, and tuck the knot inside of the leg to hide it.

Hair*
Cut 50 12-inch lengths of black yarn and attach to the head using your preferred method, I used the latch hook method.  Then separate the plys of the yarn to create fullness and the curly hair look.  If desired, cut hair to maintain an even length hair style.  Maker Tip:  A softer yarn will yield a softer looking curl, a stiffer yarn will yield more of a frizzy looking curl.

*I placed the hair around the face close to each other, then scattered the hair on the actual head because the separation of ply method creates fullness.  Please use whichever hair making method you like best.

Headband
Ch56 with the sunshine yarn
R1. sl st in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sl st in each of the next 23 sts, 1sc in the next st, 1hdc in the next st, 1dc in the next st, 1tr in the next st, 1dc in the next st, 1hdc in the next st, 1sc in the next st, 1 sl st in each of the last 24 sts
Cut yarn, fasten off, weave in ends.

Place dress on Wonder Woman and tie on the headband.
