Jumbo Crochet Mario Bros. Doll

My dolls have freeform qualities that make it especially challenging to translate into a pattern.

I wanted to make him a year ago, but I was committed to an art fair schedule that allowed no time for creating anything new. I finally got a bit of a break and decided to tackle one of the cutest and most iconic video game characters in video game history.

Mario stands at approximately 10 1/2″. He’s part of my personal “Jumbo” doll collection because he’s made from mostly Lion Brand bulky yarn.

I was going to sew yellow buttons onto his overall straps, but I wanted to make him entirely from yarn.

Buttons are easy to make with a crochet hook, so my personal pattern for Mario is 100% crochet with only two different hooks required: L/11 (8mm) for his body and accessories and H/8 (5mm) for his hat decal and mustache.
