amigurumi deadpool - free crochet pattern

Look at that cheeky guy? I introduced you to this poser last month, and promised I would get a pattern up so that you can make your own if you want to! Not one to disappoint (I hope so anyway) here is that pattern to make your own Deadpool amigurumi. Remember though, this guy has a mouth on him!

Finished Deadpool is about 20 cm/7.5 inches tall.

Perfect for the slightly more experience crocheter (rather than the complete beginner), Deadpool is worked in the round with DK yarn. All terms are written using US crochet terms (e.g. a 'sc'/single crochet is a UK 'dc'/double crochet).

Be sure to save this to your Ravelry library as well so you don't lose the pattern!

SWORDS (make 2)
with grey yarn
Row 1 - chain 21
Row 2 - turn, skip 1st ch, sc along the row (20)
Row 3 - turn, ch1, push the piece together lengthways (long sides touching) and sc along the row through both edges (20) - this should give the swords a thicker, almost (but not quite) triangular 'blade'

Fasten off and weave in ends. Then with black, simply wrap the yarn around one end of the swords, tightly so that no grey is showing through, and to the length of what you think a handle ought to be, the sew in to secure and fasten off/weave in ends. 
If your swords curve a little, like mine do below, don't worry!


TO FINISH

 -  With black felt, cut out 2 shapes for Deadpool's mask/eyes, using the pictures as a guide. Sew eyes onto the felt using the white embroidery thread - I opted to have his eyes closed, but you could sew them as little white circles, as if they are open. Deadpool has a lot of facial expressions, it's worth looking at some pictures so you can decide what your favourite is!
 -  Pin the eyes into position onto the head, and sew using black thread. 
    OPTIONAL using black yarn, sew mask details onto his head as above - I used a back stitch. 
 -  Position the belt around the largest part of the body and pin into place. Sew using either black yarn or thread. Cut the belt buckle from red and black felt (alternatively, you could colour in the black details onto the red felt as this part is a little fiddly!), sew together, then position on the front of the belt/body and sew into place. 
 -  Sew the body and head together
 -  Pin the legs into place and sew to the body. Do the same for the arms (the black ends should be the shoulders)
 -  Position and pin the swords into place on Deadpool's back, and sew securely at the point where they cross. 

And that's it - Deadpool is all done! I hope you enjoy making him for the Marvel fan in  your life. If you have any questions don't be afraid to comment and ask, or you can email me - just visit the contact page
