Sailor Mars Amigurumi Anime Doll Crochet Pattern Free

I don't know about you, but Sailor Mars is my favorite Sailor Scout!

When they say ethnic representation on television is a thing, I really do believe it. It goes all the way down to hair color. While nobody actually has natural blue, green, or pink hair, you didn't see very many cartoon characters with black hair.

I identified with Sailor Mars so much because of her long black hair. At one point, I wanted to have hair as long as Sailor Mars, down to my butt and/or maybe further.

I never made it that far and it's probably a good thing I didn't. After it gets past a certain length, it just starts to look creepy because, in real life, people's hair doesn't get that long and voluminous hair like anime characters do.

But because of Sailor Mars, I've learned to embrace my natural jet-black hair.

And just because this Sailor Mars amigurumi doll has hair that goes past her butt, it doesn't mean that I skimped on details on her amigurumi doll! As you can see in the photo below, she still has the bow on the back of her skirt.

Sailor Mars's personality reflects her powers since she's a hothead that gets angry quite easily. She is shown to be tough and independent.

While she could be nicer to Usagi (Sailor Moon) and not call her names, I do see her point 🙄. Despite all that, they have mutual respect and are loyal friends to each other.

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-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.

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.

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.
