Rubeus Hagrid

After making the trio I of course had to make Rubeus Hagrid for Norbert’s picture! Since Hagrid is half giant, he is going to be basically double the height and width of the kids. So the kids end up being about 8.5″, Hagrid is 13.5 making him a loveable, huggable giant!

Now about joining the legs, what you need to do is hold the legs together and sl st through both the legs four times in the middle where they meet, from the front of the legs to the back. Then continue around the legs. You should end with 4 sl st and 32 sc (16 sc around each leg). Moving on to the body you will forgo the sl st and only work in the sc.

Attach grey/silver yarn in the back loop of the 38th ch, ch 1 and sc in same ch. Sc in next 2 ch then place 3 sc along the side of the belt then 3 more sc in the dcs. Bind off and weave in ends. Taking a black piece of yarn sew belt into place, a little higher than middle, making sure to leave the vest open a little in the front.

Lastly is just the fine touches. I embroidered some eyebrows and a moustache. Then cut some roughly 8″ pieces of yarn and hook into place where the beard would be. I only did 3 rows on the face. For the hair I cut roughly 10-12″ pieces and hooked those onto the head. Lastly, I took my needle and split the yarn completely to give him a very frizzy hair. Trim as needed to shape it up.

Mad Hooking!
