This pattern for Mary Shelley is the first ami in my new series of authors holding adorable baby versions of their most famous characters. When completed, Mary Shelley stands roughtly 11.5 inches tall. The tiny Frankenstein baby - or for short, the Frankenbaby - fits perfectly in her arms, all cozy and unnatural in his little baby blanket.
Although I wouldn't recommend this pattern as a first venture into the world of amigurumi, it's certainly not a hard pattern. Required stitches include sc, HDC, DC, and sc2tog, or a single crochet decrease. There are three cluster stitches in the pattern, which are carefully explained, with photos. Mary's dress has the elegant low V of the dress she wears in her iconic portrait, along with natural gathers in the skirt that are accomplished with a single row of shaping work.
To make Mary and the Frankenbaby, you'll need a G hook and yarn in the colors you see here, with a minimum of extras, including 12-15mm safety eyes for Mary, and 6-9mm safety eyes for the baby. If you have a hard time working with black yarn because of your eyesight, feel free to choose a charcoal gray instead. You should also have a length of jewelry wire, ideally somewhere in the range of 16-20 gauge.
This pattern contains clear explanations and lots of pictures, because I'd rather you feel confident at every stage, rather than uncertain at any stage!
Whether you want to make this for Halloween or another occasion, Mary will reward you with an enjoyable experience and an elegant result!
Again, this listing is for the pattern, NOT the completed Mary Shelley and her Frankenbaby.
Finally got around to making this pattern and it's really awesome. Mine didn't get the great dress folds and I haven't figured out why, but besides that it was great. I did have some confusion with the arms, but I wrote off my first try as a tester and was able to figure it out in the end. Thanks for the great pattern! I'll be back for more.
