Edited 22.8.2012 to clarify the cape pattern. 

Edited 8.9.2012 to correct a small error in leg measurements.

Edited 10.10.2013 to add hook and yarn information.

 

Basic shape of this amigurumi is influenced by this absolutely adorable one-armed voodoo doll. I have added accessories and changed things in every body part, and because of that I figured it would make sense to write the whole thing down in one place.

This pattern is a somewhat coherent version of a bunch of notes scribbled behind a grocery list. It is probably not perfect, and I’ll edit corrections in as soon as someone points them out. I would also like note two things that might make the pattern a bit difficult to follow: I’m not a designer, and English isn’t my native language. Again, I’ll edit the page with corrections. :)

Cape (red)

1. Ch 11, turn.

14. Sc all (22 st), fasten off.

Ch 4, sc around the three long edges, ch 4, fasten off. Attach to the body by stitching the “straps” around arms. 

Edit: This part seems to be a “bit” unclear for many people, so I tried to put it differently (and probably just cause more confusion).

*Skip the first ch, st in in there second ch, the st in the every stitch until the end of the row, then ch 2 and turn.*

Repeat *…* until the cape is as long and wide as you want.

In other (probably more simple) words: Work flat, start with ch 11 and add one stitch in the end of every row.

Crochet around the edge so that in the end the cape looks like this:

Make and attach hair. I used wool, but the effect is a bit like Thor lost a fight against a crimping iron, so some other material might be better. If you don’t know how to make and attach hair, this tutorial is really great.

The second wing is a mirror image of the first one:

1. Ch 15, turn.

2. DC 3, HDC 3, sc 3, sl 3, turn.

3. Skip 1, 3 HDC in next st, skip 1, sl 1, 6 DC in the next st, skip 1, sl 1, skip 1, DC 6 in the next st, skip 2, sl in the last st, fasten off.

Depending on how tightly you crochet and what kind of yarn you use, it might be a good idea to starch the helmet and wings so that they don’t lose their shape. Mix few drops of glue with a tablespoon of warm water and block the parts with this solution. Let dry overnight and sew wings onto the helmet. 

Hammer (grey and brown)

Make 4 (grey):

1. Ch 10, turn.

2-6. Sc 9, ch1, turn.

7. Sc 9, fasten off.

Make 2 (grey):

1. Ch 7, turn

2-6. Sc 6, ch 1, turn.

7. Sc 6, fasten off.

The handle (brown):

MR 5, sc round until the handle is long enough, fasten off.

If you want the hammer to remain angular when sewn together and stuffed,  it could be good to either harden the parts with glue and water like the helmet, or craft a cardboard and toothpick “skeleton” to keep it in shape.
