To celebrate the release of the latest X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, here’s a fun themed project you can put together in a day. Much like every X-Men movie, I’ve decided to focus on Wolverine. With each film, the big screen has served as a catalyst to build up his character, so in kind, we will be building up our very own crocheted Wolverine. Even though I enjoy Hugh Jackman’s performance, I like Wolverine the most when he’s covered in yellow spandex. So my crocheted version is inspired by his comic costume. I’ve turned this tough, wiseass into an adorable amigurumi, and with this tutorial, you can too.
Now for those new and unfamiliar with the art of crochet, this may look too overwhelming for you. However, once you get the hang of the basics, you’ll see crocheting is actually really easy. There are plenty of tutorials to will help you get started online. I find Lion Brand Yarn's tutorial very helpful because they include pictures and some videos. If you’re more of a visual learner, there are two Youtube channels I like which will show you how to crochet, Moogly and TLC Inspirations. Lets get started!
What you’ll need:
G Crochet Hook
Acrylic Yarn: yellow, blue, and peach
Felt: black, white, silver, red, and yellow
All of these supplies can be found at craft stores like Michaels and A.C. Moore, and they’re all relatively inexpensive. You might even be able to find some of these things in big department stores. Of course, if you don’t want to venture outside to look for your supplies, the internet has plenty of places to shop from. I personally like getting my supplies from Etsy.
