Mario Crochet Pattern

Happy first of the month!

Mario has been a long-awaited character during my Super Mario journey. I decided to save the best characters for last. Also, I figured the main characters were the hardest in terms of detail and an absolute need to get all of them right. I tried to incorporate as much detail as possible into this pattern but of course, more detail also means a more complicated pattern. However, I have tried my best to keep it as simple and straightforward as possible.

As some of you may know, I am a stickler for mixed media so I decided to change some elements so that Mario was not entirely crocheted. I used printed and ironed on eyes (which is my preferred method when making my chibi dolls). I did the same for the letter on Mario’s hat). I also needle felted on the eyebrows and moustache. Lastly, I opted to sew on 2 yellow buttons for the front of the dungarees. I feel like it adds dimension and realism to the character – what do you think? I have included the pattern for the crochet versions of the eyebrows and moustache should you prefer to stitch them on.

The hands are made in the same way as Yoshi – if you have made him already. If you find it hard to see the pictures for doing the fingers you can take a look at the Yoshi hand tutorial pictures which are clearer to see.

Mario’s finished height using DK yarn with a 3mm hook is approximately 9″ tall. This is measured from his foot to the top of his hat.
