Crochet Harry Dresden-Book Character

I don’t know why I waited so long to make a crochet version of one of my favorite characters from one of my favorite book series. I kept saying I was going to make Harry Dresden from the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, but never got around to it…until now!

Instead of crocheting his head in the round, I went with making a triangle shape and then crocheting around that.

It works!
I usually use buttons but went with safety eyes this time. I used a nail (to my husband’s dismay) to give his neck area some strength.

I really loved working on him. I made his famous pentagram pendant out of some wire, a key chain ring and an earring. I was very proud of it.

His staff was also very important and iconic. I searched my garden for the perfect one. I cut it and sanded it lovingly.

And of course he wouldn’t be complete without his blasting rod (wand).

In the next post I will show his sidekick, and his pets.
