She-Hulk Free Pattern

She-Hulk Free Pattern

I know it has been forever. I’ve been working on all sorts of new things. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you should. I am finally getting used to the platform and getting a lot better at it.

Now for the main event: SHE-HULK!

I love comic book ladies and feel they are underrepresented in the crochet world. IMG_2897

Look at that face. I used my eyelash technique, because it is my favorite. I may run out of doll lashes soon. Also her booty shorts are just the cutest.

The pattern is available below. I have not tested it. I think her boobs need to be bigger. When I test it, I will try that part. I also have not calculated the yardage for the different colors. If you run into problems or errors, please contact me or leave a comment.

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

Cut two sections of 3 doll lashes and glue to the underside of the eyes. Use a strong glue. I use E6000. Set aside to dry while you work on the head.

HEAD – in Limelight
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you finish the head and stuff her.

Fasten off. Insert eyes 4 rows down from the open edge 9 stitches apart. Make sure the eyelashes are where you want them before you put the washers on for the eyes.

Embroider nose in limelight with three long straight stitches coming out of a center point to create a triangle.

Using black, embroider eyebrows using a backstich.

Make sure you tie all the tails off inside the head to prevent unraveling later.

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.
Stuff the head and sew on the hair continuing to stuff as you go.

Cut several 8 inch pieces of jelly bean to attach as hair. You can make the hair longer if you wish.

Attach the hair by folding the piece of hair in half, pulling the loop through and securing the open ends. Attach in a line on the left side of her head for the part. Attach on the other side of the line. Attach throughout the head. Using a slicker brush, go through the hair causing the yarn to unravel. This can take upwards of an hour depending on how many strands of hair you use. Then using the needlefelting tool, style the hair.
