So starting off with our Sailor Moon series of amigurumi dolls, we have Sailor Venus! Sailor Venus was my very first Sailor Scout amigurumi. Of all the Sailor Scouts, it somehow became my daughter's favourite and she asked me to make her first... before making Sailor Moon!

I decided to give my hand a try at creating my very first Sailor Scout, Sailor Venus and she just came out so CUTE!

For a long time, just like in the anime, Sailor Venus was the only Sailor Scout in my collection.

And honestly, their outfits are pretty much all the same, except for the colours you use for their outfit and their hairstyle. So once you make one of them, you can go on to create all of them.

So unlike my Pixar's Inside Out emotion amigurumi dolls that took me so long to complete the full set (because I initially didn't intend to make all of them), you'll be glad to know that I actually did go on to create the rest of the primary Sailor Scouts (Moon, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter).

Like I said, it's the colour of their outfit and their hair that really sets them apart. Sailor Venus' long luscious locks took me a few tries to perfect. I wanted to be able to do her half-up hair-do with yarn, then fasten and cover up some of the imperfections with a giant red bow.

Stitches & Abbreviations


  • st/sts - stitch/stitches
  • ch - chain
  • slst - slip stitch
  • sc - single crochet (using the yarn under method)
  • sc inc - single crochet increase, 2 single crochets in one stitch
  • sc dec - single crochet decrease, single crochet 2 stitches together
  • hdc - half double crochet
  • BLO - back loops only


Notes


  • I made this amigurumi doll using the "Yarn Under Single Crochet" technique. This technique makes the stitches tighter and appears more aligned.
  • I also used a half-colour changing technique to achieve cleaner lines when changing colours 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.

Using a 3.0 mm crochet hook with peach yarn...

Round 16: [2 sc, sc dec, 2 sc] x 6 times (30 sts)
Round 17: [3 sc, sc dec] x 6 times (24 sts)

Put in your safety eyes. I put mine between rows 10 and 11, about 7 stitches apart. Stuff the head with poly-fil before the opening gets too small.

Round 19: [Sc, sc dec] x 6 times (12 sts)
Round 20: Sc BLO in each st around (12 sts)

Cut and fasten off. Stuff firmly and push rows 20-23 inside the head to create a tunnel and a hole for the neck to go into later.

Round 1: Magic Ring with a base of 6 sc (6 sts)
Round 2-3: Sc in each st around (6 sts)

Round 2: [2 Sc, sc inc] x 2 (8 sts)

Change to peach yarn...
Round 3-7: Sc in each st around (8 sts)
Cut and fasten off the first leg.

Repeat rounds 1-7 to make a second leg. Do not cut or fasten off, instead, change to white yarn at the last st and finish off with a Ch 2.

Round 8: Join the second leg with the first leg. 8 sc around the first leg, 2 sc along the ch, 8 sc around the second leg, 2 sc along the other side of the ch (20)
Round 9-10: Sc in each st around (20 sts)
Round 11: Sc BLO in each st around (20 sts) 

Round 12: Sc in each st around (20)
Round 13: 4 sc, 6 sc around the first arm, 10 sc, 6 sc around the second arm, 6 sc (32 sts)
Round 14: Sc dec in each st around (16 sts)

Change to peach yarn...
Round 15: Sc dec in each st around (8 sts)
Round 16-20: Sc in each st around (8 sts)

Cut and leave a long tail to attach the body to the head by threading the yarn tail through the hole on the bottom of the head. Then sew it to the top of the head and then sew it to the neck again to secure it. Do this a few times to make sure your head is secured. 


Skirt


Using a 3.0 mm crochet hook and orange yarn...
Ch 4
Row 1: Sc into the second st from the hook, sc down the ch (3 sts)
Rows 2-20: Ch 1, turn, sc BLO in each st across (3 sts)

Close off the skirt and then attach it to the body of the doll around round 11 on the body.


Bandana


Using a 3.0 mm crochet hook and orange yarn...
Ch 18
Row 1: Slst into the second ch from the hook, slst, sc, 3 hdc, [3 dc in one st], 3 dc, [3 dc in one st], 3 hdc, sc, 2 slst (21 sts)
Cut and fasten with a tail to sew onto the body. The bandana should rest on the shoulders of the doll.


Front Bow

...without cutting or turning, repeat the instructions between the *'s

Back of Hair

Left Side Tie Back
Strand 18-19: Ch 40, sc into the 2nd ch from the hook and up the ch, then slst into the next st on round 5 (39)

Cut and fasten off with a long strand to sew the hairpiece onto the head. Alternatively, you can use some heavy-duty glue to fix it onto the head.

There are two strands on each side that are especially longer than the rest of them. When styling Sailor Venus' hair, those 4 strands of hair should be brought to the back so that you can create that half-up and half-down hairstyle. Then fix the hair bow to the hair to cover up any imperfections.


Hair Bow


Using a 3.0 mm crochet hook and red yarn...
Ch 12
Row 1: Hdc into the third st from the hook, hdc in each st across (10 sts)
Row 2-3: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each st across (10 sts)

Sc around the 3 sides (the "raw edges") to give the bow a nicer finish. Use 3 sc sts at the corners to round it off. Then cinch the middle part of the bow using a piece of red yarn to wrap around the middle of the rectangle and sew it onto her hair. 


Finishing Touches


Using a 3.0 mm crochet hook and orange yarn...
Ch 7, cut and sew it onto the ends of the doll's gloves.
Do this for both arms.
