Deadpool Crochet Pattern

There's a thing I think all of you need, and that's a tiny Merc With A Mouth plushie.  Yup, for this week's post I've written a Deadpool pattern!




I've also just written a brand new knitting pattern if that's your thing.  It's for a super warm knit hooded scarf that's available here.  (I'm a grad student, so I would appreciate it so much if you could support me by purchasing some of my paid patterns <3)




Anyways, without further ado, here's my Deadpool pattern!

What You'll Need
· Worsted weight red yarn
· Worsted weight black yarn
· Black felt
· White felt
· Red felt
· Brown felt
· Stuffing (for filling the body)
· Fabric glue/hot glue gun
· 3.5mm crochet hook
· Tapestry needle
· Scissors

Abbreviations
SC = Single crochet
CH = Chain
SC INC = Single crochet increase
SC DEC = Single crochet decrease
FO = Fasten off


Head
With Red Yarn
Row 1: Ch 2.   SC 7 in 2nd chain from hook (7 stitches)
*alternatively, you can make a magic loop with 7 stitches
Row 2: *SC INC* x 7 (14 stitches)
Row 3: *SC INC* x 14 (28 stitches)
Row 4 – 11: *SC* x 28 (28 stitches)
Row 12: *SC* x 4, *SC DEC* x 10, *SC* x 4  (18 stitches)
Row 13: SC, *SC DEC x 8*, SC (10 stitches)
This decrease will create the shape for the front and back of the head.



Body
For the body, you’ll need to get comfortable with switching the colour of your
working yarn.  You can find lots of tutorials on Youtube if you’re unsure of how to properly switch the yarn colour while crocheting. 

Row 1: with red *SC* x 2, with black * SC INC* x 2, with red *SC INC* x 2, with black * SC INC* x 2, With red *SC* x 2 (16 stitches)
Row 2-5: with red *SC* x 2, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 4, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 2 (16 stitches)


Legs 
Now you find yourself at the back of the torso.  To begin the legs, you’re going to continue the same pattern as before:
Row 1: with red *SC* x 2, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 2.  (8 stitches)
You’re now at the front of the body.  Using the red yarn still (you’re done with the black yarn for now), instead of continuing around the body, you’re going to begin making the leg by putting a SC into the first SC of row one.  (See
pictures below)




<— As you can see by this picture, I’ve put a SC into the first red SC of row 1, making a loop to build the leg off of.





  

Row 2: (following the step above) with red SC 8 around.  (8 stitches)
Row 3: *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 4: with black *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 5: with red *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 6-close: *SC DEC* x 2, *Slip stitch DEC to close*.  FO. 
Now it should look like this:


 

 For the other leg, repeat.  Starting at the back of the torso:

Row 1: with red *SC* x 2, with black *SC* x 4, with red *SC* x 2.  (8 stitches)
Row 2: (following the same steps as above to make the loop) with red SC 8 around.  (8 stitches)
Row 3: *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 4: with black *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 5: with red *SC* x 8 (8 stitches)
Row 6-close: *SC DEC* x 2, *Slip stitch DEC to close*.  FO. 

Arms
(Make two)
Row 1: with black CH 7, join into a loop with a slip stitch. (7 stitches)
Row 2: *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 3-4: with red *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 5: with black *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 6: with red *SC* x 7 (7 stitches)
Row 7-close: *SC DEC* x 2, *Slip stitch DEC to close*. FO.

Sew the arms right under the neck, at the sides of the body. 


Now your Deadpool should look like this:


 Now comes the facial features and accessories.  These are completely up to you, but I’ll go through and explain what I did for mine.  (As well as give some 
more up close pictures.)

Eyes
I cut two small egg shaped pieces out of white felt, and two large ovals out of black. 


 BELT & POUCHES
For the belt, I cut a thin strip out of the black felt.  The buckle is super easy.  Just cut one small black circle, and a larger red circle.  Cut the black circle in half, and glue it onto the red
circle.  I made two pouches to put on either side of the belt buckle by cutting a
rectangle, and folding the top over and gluing it down. 

I also put two smaller belts on both legs, with one pouch on the side of each one. 



Glue everything on, and weave in any loose ends, and you're done!

  1. Hey there! I'm having a bit of trouble on row 3. It says:

    Row 3: *SC INC* x 14 (28 stitches)

    But there are only 7 stitches in the previous round. How can I repeat the sc, inc 14 times? Typically when making heads the stitch count goes 7, 14, 21, 28. I'm just confused how you jumped from 14 to 28 :)

    1. Hello!

      It does go in that order.
      Row 2 lists:
      *SC INC* x 7 (14 stitches)
      so you're going to increase using SC seven times, leaving you with 14 stitches.
      Row 3:
      *SC INC* x 14 (28 stitches)
      So for each of those 14 stitches, you increase again, leaving you with a total of 28 stitches by the end of the round.

      Hope that helps! :)

  2. How do you keep the black portion of the body from slanting to one side?
