Ragdoll Hermione Granger Free Crochet Pattern

Hello! Welcome to the fourth post in the Hogwarts Ragdoll Collection. We’re almost at the end! Tomorrow I will release the keychain pattern for Dobby along with an extra surprise! So stay tuned!

The Collection includes Harry, Ron, Hermione and Malfoy (and Dobby!), and all are based on one base pattern, which is highly customizable. Hermione’s pattern differentiates the most from the base pattern due to her hair, so it’s almost like a completely different pattern.

As you know by now, this pattern is made in the same style as all our Ragdoll patterns; separate pieces worked in flat rows and then joined together to give them that unique 2-D look. Each character in the Hogwarts Collection has 11 separate pieces.

As mentioned in the pattern post for Harry, this pattern incorporates the tapestry (or intarsia) crochet technique and has a lot of colour-work involved. Also, please note that, while this pattern is not difficult, there is a fair amount of sewing, attaching and assembling involved.

Her finished measurement is approximately 24cm/9.5″ from top to bottom.

Let’s get started. Here’s what I used:

**If you’d prefer a downloadable or printable version of this pattern, an inexpensive, formatted, and ad-free PDF can be purchased HERE. And if you just can’t wait for Dobby’s pattern to be released, you can pick up the pattern for him in the shop as well, here!**

Reading this Pattern and Colour Changes:

Everything is worked in single crochet stitches, except for Row 54 of the body panels, where the stitches will be specified. So, in order to indicate the many colour-changes, I have omitted the usual “sc” in front of the stitch counts in any lines with colour-changes and I’ve used the associated colour letter instead. For example, “Binc” means to work a sc increase in black yarn. “B2, G10” means to work the next 2 sc in Black and the next 10 sc in Grey, and so on.

Due to the colour-changes, you will have several skeins or balls of yarn attached to your project at once. I opted to use two skeins of black yarn, one for each side of the cloak and two balls of Chocolate for each side of the hair. You could also do this by taking one skein of yarn and dividing it into two smaller balls. This cuts down significantly on having to carry your yarn.

The bonus part of the colour-changes in amigurumi is that you don’t have to worry about what the back of your panels look like! This is why I carry my yarn on the back instead of carrying it inside the stitch as you go. It prevents any colours from bleeding through where they shouldn’t. As long as you always carry your yarn on the back of your panel, you won’t have to tie in any ends and you’ll have a beautiful smooth front with clear lines and colours. Please see the photos in the Ragdoll Harry Potter post HERE to get an idea of where and how I carried my yarn.

When changing colours, you will insert your hook into the stitch for the last stitch of Colour A and pull up a loop. Then, with Colour B, yarn over and complete the stitch by pulling through both loops with Colour B. Drop your working yarn in Colour A and continue with Colour B. You will pick your Colour A working yarn back up again on the way back in the next row when you need it.

*Make sure to always drop your yarn on the WRONG side of your panel!* So, for example, when you are working on a row where the wrong side of the panel is facing you, you will have to make a conscious effort to pull your yarn toward you to the wrong side of the panel when dropping your yarn during a colour-change. This is because it will naturally drop to the side furthest away from you if you don’t.

Here is the colour legend:

B – Black

G – Grey

W- White

R- Red (Burgundy)

Y – Yellow (Gold)

O – Oatmeal

C – Chocolate

Tie off. Set aside for assembly later.

Feet, Arms and Scarf:

The feet, arms and scarf are all worked exactly the same as in the Ragdoll Harry Potter pattern HERE.

Assembly:

Step 1: Eyes, Sweater, and Cheeks

First, we need to attach all of our facial features to the front panel. I decided to stitch some cheerful eyes on Hermione using black crochet thread, but feel free to use safety eyes or any other kind!

Next, stitch on some cheeks using light weight pink yarn.

Finally, using embroidery thread in burgundy and gold, stitch around the “V” of the sweater to give it a border. I simply made three long stitches on each side – two burgundy with gold in between. Tie knots in the back to secure.

Step 2: Body, Arms, Legs, and Scarf

Okay, here are all the pieces you should now have at this step, as well as a picture of the back of the panels.

You will cut off four lengths of Black yarn and one length of Chocolate yarn about 30 cms (12 inches) long each. Put them aside for later. Since Hermion’e scarf will be peeking out behind her hair, you will use the Chocolate length of yarn to attach the small scarf piece, instead of Burgundy as in the Harry pattern.

You will start joining on the left side of the head:

Front of panels

From here on out, Step 2 of the assembly is exactly the same for Hermione as it is for Harry, HERE.

Step 3: Finishing Touches

Add a wand, some books, a time-turner, Crookshanks, or any other accessories/companions you want and you’re done!
