You, Yes You, Can Crochet Your Own Tiny Wolverine

Do Try This At Home

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.

And the Loki scoodie has horns. Check 'em out behind the jump.

Crocheted Viking and Dwarf Beard Helmets are Perfect for Those Without Facial Hair
