Spiderman Doll - Crochet

I've been planning to make a Spiderman doll for a very long time. So today I went to see my friend Google and asked him for a picture of Spiderman where I could have a nice clear view on the costume. I found this one and am going to use it:
I thought I'd take advantage of the nice weather and crochet outside. I set up my chair and everything.
As soon as I was ready to sit down and get going, this happened:
An evil big cloud came and blocked out the sun. Fortunately it left about 15 minutes later and I was able to get some sun onto me.
Anyway! Here comes the Spidey-pattern!
What you need:
- 1x red wool
- 1x white wool
- 1x black wool
- 1x blue wool
- 1x crochet hook
- 1x scissors
- 1x stuffing

STEP 1 - HEAD
RED
Create a circle with 6sc.
Do 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 1sc, 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 2sc, 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 3sc, 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 4sc, 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 5sc, 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 1sc for 7r.
Do 1sc in 4sc, crochet 5th and 6th tgt for 1r.
Do 1sc in 3sc, crochet 4th and 5th tgt for 1r.
Do 1sc in 2sc, crochet 3rd and 4th tgt for 1r.
Do 1sc in 1sc, crochet 2nd and 3rd tgt for 1r. 
Folded in half.
STEP 2 - BODY
RED - BLUE (change as the suit goes)
[Continue where you left off at STEP 1]
Do 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 1sc for 7r.
Do 1sc in 1sc, crochet 2nd and 3rd tgt until the gap is closed.
Finish off.
Sew up the gap.
STEP 3 - ARMS
RED
Create a circle with  6sc.
Do 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
BLUE
Do 1sc in 1sc for 5r.
Do 1sc in 1sc, crochet 2nd and 3rd tgt for 1r.
Do 1sc in 1sc for 2r.
Crochet 1st and 2nd tgt for 1r.
Finish off.
Sew the gap onto the body where you want the arm to be positioned.
REPEAT FOR SECOND ARM.

STEP 4 - LEGS
RED
Create a circle with 6sc.
Do 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Do 1sc in 1sc, 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
BLUE
Do 1sc in 1sc for 6r.
Do 1sc in 2sc, crochet 3rd and 4th tgt for 1r.
Do 1sc in 1sc for 2r.
Crochet 1st and 2nd tgt for 1r.
Finish off.
Sew the gap onto the body where you want the leg to be positioned.
REPEAT FOR SECOND LEG.
CAREFUL!!!! If you want him to hang like mine (read on), you need to put pebbles into the legs, otherwise the head will be too heavy and he will hang upside down.
 
STEP 5 - EYES

Ch1, do 2sc in 1sc for 1r.
Ch1, do 1sc in 1sc, 2sc in 1sc for 1r.

Attach to one hand and attach the other end to a lamp or other.

  1. Hi! I want to make this spiderman doll for a boy I know in a children's hospital. I'm new to crocheting and was hoping you could tell me what "tgt" means, and also what you mean by "crochet 5th and 6th tgt for 1r"?

    1. Hi! Sorry, I'm bad writing patterns ^^"
      tgt means together.
      and "crochet 5th and 6th tgt for 1r" basically means you have to do a single-crochet decrease every 5th stitch.
      Does it make more sense now?
      I hope so. :)
