I recently saw the Sherlock series…and Benedict Cumberbatch inspired me to crochet Sherlock style amigurumi/doll for a friend of mine 🙂
I was afraid it won’t be good…. But it turned out well. I altered the pattern a bit to make Sherlock taller. I made the legs longer and more defined. I also added glove-like thing. Though the colour of it doesn’t suit him.
The most fun and toughest part was giving Sherlock a haircut. I was afraid that all the good work would go to waste. Thankfully it turned out well.
And the mouth, that’s a funny incident. While I was giving a haircut a small thread of the yarn just got stuck to the place where the mouth should be. And it looked good So I just took my fevicol and stuck it for good.
The scarf is removable. Made it with anchor knitting cotton.
The pattern is taken from http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/232/0/0/crocheted_sherlock_pattern_by_retsnimel-d4wvvqb.pdf
Now this is how it was in the end 🙂
