You know when you're crocheting and you can't fully pay attention to the TV, but you want something entertaining on in the background? The Office is definitely one of my go-to shows to have in the background.

I love the show so much that I probably know all the episodes by heart that I can just have the audio play in my car while driving if I wanted to.

I was introduced to The Office UK, but I was very young at the time and didn't quite get the humor. It wasn't until I started working that my now-husband introduced me to the American version of The Office.

I was a little reluctant at first. I didn't think that I would like it as much as I do, but it's definitely now one of my top favorite TV shows of all time, next to Friends, of course.

To pay tribute to one of my all-time favorite shows, I decided to make the show's Assistant to the Regional Manager, Dwight Schrute into an amigurumi doll!

As I was working on the doll, I was worried that the resemblance wasn't there. So I brought a picture of the unfinished doll (no hair and no glasses) and asked on The Office subreddit (on Reddit) to see if they see the likeness. I was so happy that they were able to identify him.

It was ironic because soon after, when I was working on the doll in the lunchroom at work one day, one of my co-workers walked in and asked me if I was making Dwight. I didn't even have to tell her it was a character from The Office. I guess Dwight's yellow mustard shirt and brown pants must have given him away.

I'm no wire artist, so his glasses were a bit challenging for me to make. The glasses were made out of two pieces. The nose pieces of the eyeglasses were left longer so they embed into the doll's face. I didn't have to use glue or anything to attach the glasses.

His hair was interesting to make. It's known that Dwight parts his hair in the middle, but how was I going to achieve this with how I make hairpieces on my amigurumi?

Well, my first few renditions of Dwight made him look more like a beloved Backstreet Boy. If you're a fan of the Backstreet Boys, you don't need me to tell you who it is. The fringes were just too long. And Dwight is no Backstreet Boy - he's Dwight K. Schrute!

Anyway, I'd never thought I'd say this, but this Dwight is kinda cute!

Notes

  • I also used a half-color changing technique to achieve cleaner lines when changing colors from one row to another.
  • When working on the hairpiece, I used the underside of the piece as the "outside" or the side that is showing. The curls of the strands will follow a natural curl towards the face.
