Woody Crochet Pattern

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

We are kicking off the New Year with my Woody crochet pattern. Woody is the last character pattern to complete the first set of my Toy Story series. Set one consists of Alien, Hamm, Rex, Slinky, RC, Mr Potatohead, Buzz Lightyear and Woody. I tried to focus on the main characters from the first movie. For Set 2 I will focus on the characters from the second movie.

This Woody pattern was actually very quick to crochet, it is all very straightforward. However, in order to give Woody that classic look, it requires a lot of embellishments and little details and those are what takes so much longer to complete. Despite the time and fiddling required to add all of these details I think it is very worth it and I think you all would also agree.

I used a technique that I have not used before to give Woody that classic look to his arms and legs. I am not sure if there’s a name for the technique but it works perfectly. Unfortunately, the downside is that the way that I crocheted them does not allow me to wire the arm and legs. This is something that I might have to look into later and see if I can figure out a way to work around it.

A lot of mixed media went into completing this project. Wool roving, felt, polymer clay and even t-shirt transfer paper. All of these methods are not mandatory, you could always use whichever medium and methods suit you and what you have on hand. But as I always say I just feel that all of the different materials and textures give the project a whole new dimension and bring it to life more.

I needle felted the eyes, eyebrows and mouth. I was rushing a bit so I am not happy with his left eye which looks a bit odd. Luckily, I can just use the brim of the hat to hide it for now until I get round to fixing it. The pink for the mouth was pale so you couldn’t really see it so I added brown roving to give it a deeper colour.

Woody measures approximately 12 inches tall, 3.5 inches shoulder to shoulder and his hat rim measures 4.25 inches wide.
