Knitted and Stuffed Marvel Thor’s Hammer

20150802_022907

Today I’m going to take you through making a knitted and stuffed Marvel Thor’s Hammer. It is a design I came up with myself, and is broken down into easy-to-follow steps with photos.

*Be safe when making this when it will be around little kids/babies and animals. It’s durability and safety depends on how strongly it is put together.*

STEP 1

Knit the individual pieces all in garter stitch (both sides knit).

You will have (from photo below top to bottom, left to right) –

1x CO8, K 59cm (designated A)

2x CO20, K 18cm (designated B)

2x CO8, K 14cm (designated C)

1x CO5, K 34cm (designated D)

(white sections listed under photo)

White wings (it doesn’t matter if these don’t come out in the perfect shape, as you can manoeuvre it when you sew it on).

2x CO10

Row 1: K

Row 2: K9, K1M1

Row 3: M1K1, K….., K1M1

Row 4: K……., K1M1

Rows 5, 6, 7, 8: K all

Row 9: K2tog, K rest

Row 10: K……., K2tog

Row 11: K2tog, K rest

Row 12: K…….., K2tog

Rows 13, 14, 15, 16: K all

Row 17: K2tog, K rest

Row 18: K………, K2tog

Row 19: K2tog, K rest

Row 20: K………., K2tog

Rows 21, 22, 23: K all

Row 24: K………, K2tog

Row 25: K2tog, K rest

Row 26: K………., K2tog

Row 27: K2tog, K rest

Rows 28, 29, 30: K all

BO

STEP 2

This is the handle of the hammer. You will use C and D. C (2 pieces) are the sides, and D is sewn around them, making a 3D rectangle. Do not sew it up completely. Leave one side open.

STEP 3

You can either stuff the filling in like it is, or, as I did to make sure no fibres poked through, I sewed a little fabric packet stuffed with fill.

Sew up the remaining side.

STEP 4

Sew the white wings on – one on each B. As stated before, when sewing them on, you can give them more of a proper wing shape.

STEP 5

Like STEP 3, connect the Bs with A, making it into a 3D rectangle. As you sew-up the bottom-middle, sew-on the handle. Add stuffing (again, can be in a fabric pouch), and close it all up.
