Make your own Amigurumi Voodoo Doll and use it as a pin cushion, or in your next ritual to bring misery to your mortal enemy. This is my own, original crochet pattern, and is suitable for beginner crocheters. I have included a photo for each round in the pattern, so you should find it very easy to follow, but if you have any questions, feel free to let me know in the comments section.

If you're a total newbie to crocheting, you may find my Instructable on How To Crochet: Amigurumi Basics very helpful. If you do not know how to make an adjustable Magic Ring, then click on the text link to learn how. You will need to make one for this instructable, but don't worry because they are super easy to make!

Lets continue on shall we?

Step 1: Tools & Materials

50g (Medium Weight #4) Yarn, off-white (there will be some left over)
Small amount Red & black yarn
100% Polyester Fiber fill

Crochet Hook Size H (5mm) for main body, limbs and head
Crochet Hook Size E (3.5mm) for heart

2 small buttons for eyes
Safety Pin (for marking rounds)
Yarn needle
<p>thanks for the great step by step instructions. I'm new to crochet and wanted to make something that would 'hide' my mistakes and look good at the end. I added stitches to disguise the fact that the legs and arms didn't match! My daughter has macabre tastes (she's thirteen) so this is what it ended up like! </p>
<p>Oh my gosh, you did a FABULOUS job!!! I love the styling you chose (especially the zombie-esque torso) and the slight difference in limbs only adds to its character. I'm sure your daughter will absolutely LOVE it. Thanks for sharing the pic.</p>
<p>Not sure about &quot;Made it,&quot; but at least &quot;Inspired by&quot; the author's design... Thanks for contributing the pattern! </p>
<p>Thanks for sharing the pic. I think it looks great. I like that you were inspired to make it your own! There are no rules here. Now he needs a friend. ;) </p>
<p>Adorably malevolent :)</p>
One day I will have magic fingers like Canucksgirl. <br>One day I will learn to crochet. Sigh. <br> <br>I just adore all of your projects!
lol... You are too sweet. <br>If you want to learn, check out my ible on How to Crochet. Its actually much easier to do than you might think. Just start with a larger hook and thicker yarn to practice the basic stitches, and if you need help, just ask! I'd be happy to help you out. <br> <br>I just finished a hat and mittens for a Christmas present. :-)
lol... voted... again!
hehe... Thanks... again! :-)
You have been a busy beaver, I respect that !<br> <br> But to work on the <strong>Dark Arts &ordf; &sect; Scary ;-&thorn;</strong><br> {<em>As I'm tossing salt from the Utah flats over my shoulder</em> }<br> Your juju is powerful indeed for such young fingers.<br> <br> Of course the workwomenship and photo documenting is Outstanding.<br> <br> A
Thank you! and yes, I have been busy. 3 ibles in one day...<br><br>I hope my efforts and luck are worthy for the Amigurumi Challenge (otherwise my new friend may prove handy if I lose). ;)
lol... I just love this little guy... and I voted for you, too. I think you've got a winner here!!!!
:) Thanks. I made it as a finalist.... they finished judging at midnight, but they haven't posted the winners yet, so I'm still waiting to find out.
Wish tor you !!!!!!
:) Thank you.<br> <br> <sup>Patience truly is a virtue...</sup>
Another opinion :-)
So much for patience (and luck)... I lost (again). :-(
Awaaa <strong>:-(</strong><br> <br><br> <br>Been here since 2006 and never got close...............
I wish I knew what I could have done better... My ible got more views than 4 of the winners, and I think I documented this project fairly well. Plus, it's my own pattern, whereas, some of the winners may have been &quot;inspired&quot; by other published patterns... (I'm not trying to sound bitter. It would just be nice to know more about how they judge projects).
You don't sound bitter... just perplexed. I am, too. <br> <br> <br> <br>
i have been working the dark art for 6 years and i'm 11 and i want to see if i can make your voodoo doll hurt my brothers LOL
why do you bother to hide your age if your going to tell people....?
Jeez, I was joking! Anyway why do I care, half these people live in usa.
wow your so talented mine are terible compared to yours your amazing
Thank you. I'm sure yours are great. When you make a new one, remember to post an instructable on it (you might also get featured and they'll give you free Pro Membership for it).
i have just made a one if you would like to see it =)<br>p.s thanks for the nice comment<br>=)
Sure! (and you're welcome).
oh... oh.... it's just a harmless pin cushion.<br><br> whew... you had me skeered for a second! ;-D
hahaha... it's multi-purpose. ;)
Consider this project voted for... and the rating system finally showed it's elusive self, too. It's gonna be a great day! ;-D
Thanks for the vote and the rating! I appreciate it. So yes, it looks like it will be a great day. (I hope the sun is shining for you also). ;)
De nada, cg. Warm and sunny in my neighborhood, too! ;-)
Same here.
That is awesome! And the directions are fantastic. :D
Thanks Jessy! Its the very first crochet pattern that I have ever written, so I was hoping to get some comments about the instructions. I hoped that grouping the photos would make it easier to follow (and be less overwhelming). <br><br>Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it! ;)
I like the way you grouped photos, it does make it easier to follow (I bet that took a lot of time to put together), Nicely done!
Thanks! Yes, it took quite a while to do. I ended up using exactly 100 photos for just this instructable. <br><br>Then I also wrote the Magic Ring ible and the How to Crochet ible at the same time.... I took a crazy number of photos to get all three done.<br><br>Thanks for commenting! :)
I cant decide if this is cute or just plain creepy.
haha.... Since its a Voodoo Doll, I guess its a little of both. ;)
