Here he is...and I am having SOOOOO much trouble parting with him...Harry!!!


He is crochet in a spiral in single crochet with a mix of cotton (his face) and acrylic (his body, cloak and hair).

I threaded his hair one by one (rug hooking style) through his scalp then untwisted the strands...gah!

His eyes and mouth are felt and his glasses I made from wire and duct tape.  His wand is a tooth pick (sshhhhhh!  Don't tell him that!!!).

He stands about 8" tall.

oh my goodness. That's freaking adorable. I need to make a hermione one... my friend Will thinks she's hot, despite the fact that she's only 16. So it would be a great joke for him! Do you have the pattern for the Harry doll?

Sorry!  I didn't use a pattern!  All I did was chain 5 and join with a slip stich.  Then I sc'd 8 into the ring. 

I continued to spiral around increasing every few stitches until I had the proper "bowl" for the top of a head. 

Then I sc'd around (no increases), then decreased down to an appropriate "neck" size.  I crammed his head full of fabric scraps.  I sc'd for a few rounds to make a neck then switched colours (red).  I made the body the same was as the head, increasing until I got appropriate shoulders the sc'd to make the body, I switched to black about half way down to make his...butt...

Basically his head and body are like a big peanut, with one side (head) being much bigger.

I made his arms and legs separate and attached them after. 

Hope that helps!!!

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I have his bald scalp done so far Wink

I'll be sure to post him when he is finished...I will try to emulate the expression in my avatar I think...

I think I will make him with the same hair as Harry but see if I can attach it so it kind of parts down the middle.  and he'll be mine...ALL MINE!!!!!   Grin
