Thanks for the pattern!
Here's my mini house elf.  I modified the pattern a bit to give him a shorter nose, a fatter belly (I hope you don't mind). I also crocheted him a little sack to wear, and a sock to hold (he's just been given his freedom, lol).

The size was perfect, as I was looking for something that would fit with my other Harry Potter amis.
Thanks again!

I had to do a little scheming to figure out the increases and decreases when I tried the pattern, but the doll came out so cute!!!  Cheesy

Aw, that's great! Also, your first post, welcome, and thanks!

I know, I didn't give the exact spot of where the increases are supposed to happen, but I thought it's pretty obvious (they're evenly distributed), and that the pattern didn't need to be cluttered with it. Glad it works for you!

Hm, if there is a demand for getting a version that gives the exact increases, I could write that up!

I just came across the Dobby Doll. I cry every time he dies. We watch the whole HP series every so often. I still cry. I love Dobby.  I would love to have the pattern with the correct increases and decreases. When I make one, I'll have to make at least 2. My daughter 43 will want one, too. Hubby got us a Time Turner for Christmas 2114.

Sorry to post from a bugmenot account, but new account creation is broken at the moment. I had to try to make an account to thank you for this pattern!

Although I've crocheted toys and simple objects for years, this is actually the first time I've successfully followed anybody else's pattern for something more complicated than a sphere. He took me about 2.5 hours. I deviated from the pattern in giving him a bit too much neck, since the way I sewed his eyes on kind of squished his head all funny -- in retrospect, I don't think I stuffed his head tightly enough.


As you requested, I made him a little sock! It was going to be orange and purple, but doing detail at this tiny a scale is beyond my ambition for the evening.

@witchcraftbmn: He's so cute! I like how everyone gives Dobby slightly different features and proportions, and I've done head-smooshing too with mixed results, but don't worry, no one else but you will notice Wink
Thanks for posting the results with pic, and thanks for giving him a sock! Smiley

@LNsGirl: Sorry, I haven't gotten around to making a more elaborate pattern. I think I know what you mean, and I wanted to make a few changes to the way the pattern is written anyway. Will keep it on my to-do-list! Not sure when I get to it, but it's not forgotten! In the meantime: the increases and decreases are usually done as regularily and symmetrical as possible, for example, when you have 4 stitches, and the pattern says to make 6 from that, the increases will be on opposite sides of the round (sc, inc, sc, inc), not next to each other.
That's definitely how the rounds are done.
Not so sure anymore how I did the inc in the ears (at the end, I guess), but they should be fine anyhow, I think. As it's such a small piece, you could try different ways and see which one you like.
