Papyrus Crochet Pattern!!



I may be a bit behind the ball on this one, but I finally finished my (first) play through of Undertale! I've had quite a few custom orders for patterns based on the game, and I just had to figure out what all the fuss was about. It was pretty epic, if I do say so myself. And who doesn't love Papyrus? I had to make a crochet doll of him!

He's about 14.5" tall when finished.  Leave tails on all pieces for sewing together!  You can always trim tails if you leave too many, but it's a pain in my opinion to add them in later.

Assembly

I usually start with the limbs, and work my way to the larger pieces!






For the hands and arms:  Take the forearm, and place the end without the tail down into the cuff of the glove.  I try to place it all the way down to where the yellow and red meet.  Take a bit of yellow scrap yarn and sew it into place.  Then you can fold the cuff of the glove down.

Next, take the shoulder piece, and sew the forearm top to the bottom of the upper arm.  You don't want these to overlap at all.  You want to do more of a whip stitch with them side by side to make a "joint" so his arm can bend.



For the boots and legs:  You should have previously sewn the boot cuff to the bottom of the boot, if not do it now as stated in the "boot" section above.  Now you can take a leg, and place the leg inside the boot as far as you can.  I place the end without a tail inside the boot, so I can sew the leg to the bottom later.  Using some black scrap yarn, sew two stitches to look like laces on the front of the boot "cuff", using these two stitches to hold the leg into the shoe.

Next, I usually sew the legs to the bottom before attaching them to the main body to make it a bit easier to handle.  The legs should go on either side of the rounded half sphere, on the bottom.  Once those are attached, sew the abdomen to the very middle of his bottom on the flat side



For the body: Sew the shoulders on either side of the body.  The body should have an oval shape, make sure the shoulders are on the narrow part of the oval, so the long side is his front and back.  .



For the head and cape:  Papyrus's head should go, of course, on top of his body.  I usually place the head a little farther forward instead of in the direct middle.  The cape is where it can be a little tricky. I center the back of the cape behind Papyrus' head on his back, and wrap one side of the cape tie around his neck and stitch it into place.  Then, I take the other tie, wrap it around and fold it under the other side and tack it down with a few stitches.






Lastly, his face!  You can needle felt it on, but I just used the regular craft felt I had lying around and some glue.  I just eyeballed it off a few Papyrus photos I found online.


And you're done!  I made both a "regular" and "flirty" Papryus face - I'm in love with them!!  Have fun making your own Papyrus!

  1. In Row4 of the body the total stitch count says it should be 24, however it is actually 27 which then leaves the rest of the pattern incorrect.
