Assembly


  1. Stuff the head (this is just for positioning of eyes at this stage)
  2. work out positioning for the safety eyes and put in the eyes, but do not secure (NOTE: DO NOT use safety eyes for young children!!!) work out positioning for mouth, and lightly mark on with pencil.
  3. Take out stuffing and secure the eyes in place with backs of the plastic eyes.
  4. Embroider on the mouth, I used a simple zig zag.  I wanted to make him look scary, but in a cute way (if that's a thing?!?)
  5. Re-stuff the head.
  6. Stuff the body
  7. Sew together head and body, using tail end from head and large yarn needle.  Simply sew each stitch together to form a neat join.
  8. Just before last few stitches, ensure enough stuffing in neck to support head, you don't want it floppy! Stuff a bit more in if it needs!
  9. Stuff the arms, use a pen to push the stuffing into the narrow end bit and over stuff the 'muscle' part.  You want the arms quite big!
  10. Sew each arm onto the body, just under the head, mark them out first and pin so you get them even!
  11. Stuff the legs and sew on to bottom of body in place.
  12. Next you sew on the hair to the head.  Position the hair so the 'curl' is at front centre and pin in place.  The use black thread to sew the hair on.  I simply made small stitches just under the hair line so these could not be seen.  I then made a few larger stitches over the rest of the head all the way around to secure in place.
  13. Last thing to do is the muscle definition embroidery.  You can mark this out with pencil if easier.  I used green yarn to mark the abs, I then went over the same stitches with a strand of green thread to create more definition. 




That's it, you're done! I hope you are happy with your cute (and very scary) crochet Hulk.  If you do make him, I would LOVE to see your pics.  Tag me in Instagram or Twitter @Jo_TPHPBlog 
Well I am super happy to tell you that Corey loved his Hulk, he had a very excited face when he opened the parcel.  He knew instantly who he was and said 'Hulk' what a result! Phew!

  4. Sorry it's me again. I have made the arm and ripped it out and made it again because it doesn't look like yours. It is very short. On rows 5 and 6 ( increases) do you do any rows ( like the head) where you do a row even after the increases? Like do increase to 14 then do a row of 14. Then increase to 19 and do a row even of 19 ? Thank you so much for your help.

    1. Hi Kathy, oh no, sorry to hear that. When looking at the picture of the arm, I can count 11 rows, but to be honest when I've made them again following my own pattern I can never get the arms looking right! haha. To make them bigger I think do as you suggest put in another row of just the same amount of stitches after rows 5 and 6, that should make it a bit longer.

    2. Thank you for your time. :) yes I did 2 rolls even after the two increases. It look better. Not as nice as your but it will do for the 4 year olds lm making hulk for. It's for my grandsons birthday grab bags in August I think once I get it together it will be perfect! Thank you so much!
