I started a project of watching the top ranked scariest movies in the vain hope of recapturing the scares of my youth, but I think that ship has sailed and I'm just too... jaded? Used to them?  I dunno.  So I changed it to horror movie crafts!  Which then promptly got shoved aside in favor of swaps, but is back because of the Nerd Games.  Sorry, long unimportant intro.



Also, sorry for the crummy photo, it's been raining for a week straight and this has to be posted tonight for the Nerd Games.  No natural light for me!

For the body, I mostly followed this pattern with a few changes, and incorporated the arms from this pattern, mostly.

Here is the pattern with a detachable head (very important for this doll!)

Legs (make 2 - FO the first one, continue to body for second one)
Rnd 1: 5 sc in MR (5)
Rnd 2: inc around (10)
Rnd 3: [inc, sc] around (15)
Rnd 4-6: sc around (15)
Rnd 7: [3sc, dec] around (12)
Rnd 8-13: sc around (12)

Body
Skipping the first stitch from the hook, sew the next two stitches to the first leg with the tail from the first leg.  Work the remaining stitches as follows:
Rnd 14: Inc (in leg 2), Inc (in leg 1), 8 sc, Inc, Inc (back in leg 2), 8 sc (24)
Rnd 15-24: sc around (24)
Rnd 25: [2 sc, dec] around (18)
Rnd 26: [sc, dec] around (12)
(For a detachable head, sl st 3 tog around, close hole)
(For a detachable head, 6 sc in MR, then inc around (12) )
[for continuous body/head: Rnd 27: sc around (12)]
Rnd 28: inc around (24)
Rnd 29: [inc, sc] around (36)
Rnd 30-37: sc around (36)
Rnd 38: [4 sc, dec] around (30)
Rnd 39: [3 sc, dec] around (24)
Rnd 40: [2 sc, dec] around (18)
Begin stuffing head
Rnd 41: [sc, dec] around (12)
Rnd 42: dec around
finish stuffing, fo, and sew closed.

Arms:
Rnd 1: 6 sc in mr
Rnd 2: Inc around (12)
Rnd 3: sc around (12)
Rnd 4: sc around (12)
Rnd 5: TC Bobble st, 3 sc, dec., 4 sc, dec (10)
Rnd 6: 3 sc, dec, 3 sec, dec {8}
(stuff hand)
Rnd 7-12 : sc around {8}
(stuff arm)
Rnd 13: dec around (4)
fo, leave long tail to sew to body

TC Bobble [*2 yo, insert into st, yo and pull through, yo and pull through two loops, yo and pull through 2 loops* (2 loops on hook) - repeat from * to * twice (4 loops on hook), yo and pull through all 4 loops)]

Wig Cap:
Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR
Rnd 2: inc around (12)
Rnd 3: sc, inc around (18)
Rnd 4: 2 sc, inc around (24)
Rnd 5: 3 sc, inc around (30)
Rnd 6: 4 sc, inc around (36)
Rnd 7-10 sc around


Then the hair.  Oh, how this held me up.  Oh, how I hate doing doll hair.



I started with straight up yarn, but in order to make it not incredibly massive I had to leave it pretty sparse, which bothered me.  So I thought I'd separate the yarn.



Bonus, floofy hairstyle!



I will definitely use this on some of my other dolls that I'm never going to make because I hate making dolls.  Yes.  But Reagan doesn't have curly hair.  Drat.  TO THE IRON!



Who ran over Weird Al?



Better?  Maybe if I brushed it?  I used a dog slicker brush...



Yeah, a lot of that came out.  Good to know, if you seriously over-hair, you can always brush it!



It'll do.

On to the neck!  Giant snap!



But it left a noticeable gap, so I did a foundation single crochet and sewed it around the outside edge of the snap on the head.



~~Puppy break, or, why I can no longer craft - New Dog (Emma) is very needy and hates the sound of everything.  I mean everything.  Camera shutters.  Irons steaming.  Ice rattling in a glass.  The 'clink' of setting my crochet hook down on the glass top desk.  And let's not even get into sewing machines.  So crafting has been... a challenge.  But look at that face!



okay, back to the doll, but it's out there that rushed work is aaaaaallll her fault.~~

Avert your eyes, naked doll!



Then the dress  I'm not so proud of this, but I'll share anyway.  Time was tight, and see: dog.

Dress (starting at the bottom)
Foundation single crochet 28
Rnd 1 - dc around
Rnd 2 - dc around
Rnd 3 - dc around
Rnd 4 - 6 dc,  dc 2 tog, 12 dc, dc 2 tog, 6 dc
Rnd 5 - 5 dc,  dc 2 tog, 11 dc, dc 2 tog, 6 dc
TURN, DO NOT JOIN
dc across again.

Sleeves
Foundation single crochet 12
Rnd 1 - dc around
Rnd 2 - dc around

Connect sleeves to the side edges of the dress with 3 st.



Then 2 rows sc around top of sleeves/dress



And the back has a slit/opening to slid it up the doll's body.



And then, the vomit.



I think this is punch needle stuff (given to me by a friend) and I just crocheted some random, amorphous shapes and two drips for her mouth and sewed them on.

The fun part is holding her with her back to a person, then reaching up and slllloooooowly rotating her head around.  Sorry, you'll just have to imagine it, but it's pretty fun.



Oh, and the Nerd Games prompt I mentioned?  Homonyms, and you can bet I'm sharing mine here, too, because I worked hard on it...

The priests prayed over the girl, to cast out he demon who preyed upon her, and flung a vial of holy water at the vile (and, in crochet form, holey) creature, while the poor wretch continued to retch - she threw up through out the rite meant to set everything right.

I love that her head spins! And her hair is intense!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I have never seen a doll with crochet vomit until now!  Cool idea for a project and nice execution.  I bet she would have looked even more creepy if you had given her paler green eyes, instead of black, and some facial lacerations, like in the movie.

Ahhh the pea soup scene!! Classic. Next you need one with her head on backwards and a corkscrew type stitch thing for her neck!! I know very technical terminology there...

I love crochet dolls and especially  themed ones from movies. She looks as creepy  as she did in the movie, great job.
