Morrissey Doll

Posted by on Jan 8, 2015 in Crochet, Feature | 3 comments

For the past couple of months, I have been crocheting like crazy because I finally got my Etsy shop up and running. I got a fair amount of orders for my crocheted Viking hats and beards before Christmas, which was great because we were also gearing up to go back home for the holidays. In the middle of fulfilling those orders, I got a request from my friend and former co-worker, Christi. Her BFF Kelly Sue is a HUGE Morrissey fan, and in her search for the perfect Christmas gift for her, she found some knitted Morrissey dolls. She knows that I knit and crochet, and asked if I could recreate one. Not having enough faith in my knitting abilities, I asked if she would mind if I did a crochet version, and she said that’d be fine.

So, I consulted the awesome book I got for my birthday last year, AmiguruME by Allison Hoffman, and here’s what I came up with:

Christi chose the outfit, and I think it suits him well. I relied on Christi for advice in getting his facial features just right. We debated on his hair color as well. Sometimes it looks brown, other times it looks black, so I decided to use a dark brown yarn. Getting the pompadour and hairline just right was tricky, but I was happy with the end result. His shirt is removeable (obviously), and his arms are poseable.

Christi and Kelly Sue were both happy with mini Moz as well! Happy customers always make me happy, and these two ladies are the best, so extra warm fuzzies for them!

If you want to get your own crochet Morrissey doll, I have created a listing in my Etsy shop for him.
