Mary Poppins Amigurumi Doll: Free Crochet Pattern!

The Disney film "Mary Poppins" is a classic. Children all over the world wanted a nanny like Mary! Now you can crochet your own version of this iconic character with this free pattern. She comes with her characteristic props: the flower hat, parrot umbrella and tapestry bag! You can take off her scarf and coat. The shown example doll is about 10 inches (25 cm) tall.

This pattern has been translated and published in this article with permission of the original designer: Ana Artedetei. This super-crafty person has filled her aptly named "Hyperactive Mothers" website with examples and patterns of all her crafts, including fabric flowers and stuffed animals, bespoke t-shirts, bags and purses, surgical caps, knitted hats and scarfs, felted decorations, a wide array of Halloween costumes (including an AWESOME Tetris group costume, that you háve to check out!), costume jewelry, and (of course!) really cute amigurumi crochet patterns. In short: her website is most certainly worth a browse, if only to get inspired to do a little more in your day... The "Mary Poppins" pattern featured in this article is available in the original Spanish on Ana's website.

Boots, Legs and Body

The legs are made separately and are then crocheted together to make the body. Crochet in closed rounds (and not in a spiral). This means that every round is closed with a slip stitch and the following round started with by chaining 1 (these instructions are not included in the description below).

Make two, start with dark blue (for the boots).
Chain 5.
In the second stitch from the hook 1 sc, 1 sc in each of the following two stitches, 3 sc in the last stitch.
Continue on the other side of the original chain: 1 sc in each of the following two stitches, 2 sc in the last chain (10).

Fasten off for the first leg, keep yarn attached to the second leg to continue crochet the body.

Round 1.- 11 sc, 1 inc, 11 sc, 1 inc (26) (make sure to get one increase per leg/side)

Sew the body to the head stitch on stitch.

Embellish the boots with buttons, beads or something else to get the look of metal clasps. In this case, metal studs were used.

Shirt Collar

The collar of the shirt is crocheted directly onto the neck: into the last white stitches under where the head is joined.
Work in rows, use white yarn.

Row 1.- Start crocheting onto the body on the front, almost in the middle (where the shirt collar is open): 18 sc
Row 2.- 4 sc, 1 inc, 9 sc, 1 inc, 5 sc

Fasten off.

Cut a piece of red felt in the shape of a bow tie and attach it to the collar (see photos).

Hat

Crochet in closed rounds (not in spirals).

Round 3.- 1 sc, 1 inc, repeat until the end (18)

Coat

You may choose to crochet the coat using slightly thicker yarn and a bigger crochet hook. Crochet the coat in rows.

In dark blue:
Row 1.- Chain as many stitches as you need to loosely fit around Mary's neck. In this case: 26 sc (26)
Row 2.- 1 sc in every stitch
Row 3.- 4 sc, chain 5 (skip 5 stitches, this will become a sleeve), 8 sc, chain 5 (skip 5 stitches (this will become a sleeve), 4 sc
Row 4-5.- 1 sc in every stitch (26)
Row 6.- 12 sc, 1 inc, 1 inc, 12 pa (28)
Row 7.- 1 sc in every stitch (28)
Row 8.- 3 sc, 1 inc, repeat until the end
Row 9.- 1 sc in every stitch
Row 10.- 4 sc, 1 inc, repeat until the end
Row 11-14.- 1 sc in every stitch
Crochet sc around the entire coat.

We ended up giving 1 sc around the entire coat, including the chains (where the sleeves will come).

Make the sleeves in the holes left on row 3.
4 sc, 1 inc, 4 sc, 1 inc (12)
sc around until the sleeve is long enough. Repeat with the other sleeve.

Please note: make sure that the holes (and thus the sleeves) are in the right place for your particular Mary Poppins doll. In order to do this fit the coat on the doll regularly, especially when placing the holes (the chain 5).

Embellish the coat with small buttons. In this case small metal studs were used.

Umbrella

Mary Poppins has an iconic parrot head umbrella! The umbrella part itself is crocheted, whereas the parrot head is crafted from fimo clay. So this will be a great opportunity for you to try out some new skills!

Crochet in a continuous spiral.
In black (or dark blue to fit better with the coat and boots):

Follow instructions found on THIS WEBSITE!

The parrot head is made with green and black fimo clay. Shape the clay, stick it to the wire stem and let dry completely. Googly eyes were glued on and the feathers were drawn on with a gold colored permanent marker.

Scarf

Choose two colors (in this case yellow and light brown) and switch between these colors every four rows. Start by chaining 7 stitches. Crochet 6 sc starting in the second stitch from the crochet hook. At the end of each row chain 1 and turn.

After reaching the desired length of your scarf, fasten off and weave in the yarn ends. Add fringes to both ends of the scarf.

Bag

In beige or light brown, crochet in spirals.

Chain 4.
Round 1.- 1 inc, 1 sc, 4 sc in the last chain, turn the piece and continue on the other side: 1 sc, 1 inc (10)
Round 2.- 2 inc, 1 sc, 4 inc, 1 sc, 2 inc (18)
Round 3.- 2 x (1 sc, 1 inc), 1 sc, 4 x (1 sc, 1 inc) 4 times, 1 sc, 2 x (1 sc, 1 inc) (26)
Round 4.- 2 sc, 1 inc, 9 sc, 1 inc, 2 sc, 1 inc, 9 sc, 1 inc (30)
Round 5.- 6 sc, 1 inc, 3 sc, 1 inc, 10 sc, 1 inc, 3 sc, 1 inc, 4 dc (34)
Round 6.- In back loop only, crochet 1 sc in every stitch (34)
Round 7-11.- 1 sc in every stitch (34)
Round 12.- 4 x (1 dec, 5 dc), 1 dec, 4 sc (29)
Round 13.- 2 sc, 1 dec, 4 x (4 sc, 1 dec), 1 sc (24)
Round 14.- 4 x (1 dec, 3 sc), 1 dec, 2 sc (19)
Round 15.- 1 sc, 1 dec, 4 x (2 sc, 1 dec) (14)
Start stuffing, not too tight!
Round 16.- 7 dec (7)
Fasten off, finish stuffing (make sure the bag is not too stiff. Mary Poppins famously has a floppy bag!), close the remaining hole with a tapestry needle.

In this case, the bag handles were braided from fine jewelry thread. You may choose to do the same or to just crochet handles using yarn. Another possibility is to use short lengths of leather cord.

The decorations on the bag (the flowers) were drawn on the bag using a permanent marker. You can also embroider some flowers or sew on some beads to form a flower shape.
