Divine Mercy Jesus Ornament Crochet Pattern

Updated: Sep 5






Materials:

  • 2.5 mm hook

  • Yarn (I use cotton yarn, weight 4): tan/beige or skin color of choice, brown, white, red, light blue, and gold. (I use an acrylic yarn for the gold parts only because I like the color more than my cotton gold yarn options.)

  • Polyester fiber stuffing

  • Stitch marker (to keep track of rows)

  • Finishing/tapestry needle (to sew parts together, embroider nose, and weave in ends)

  • Black embroidery thread

  • Glue (I used Tacky glue)*

  • Sewing pins (for placing parts together before sewing)

  • Optional: hook,


a cotton swab or item to help apply glue onto the hair cap


Skills:

  • Basic understanding of how to complete amigurumi and follow patterns

  • Working in a spiral

  • Color changing

  • Sewing amigurumi parts together

  • Finishing off (f.o.) and weaving/tucking in ends

  • Chain (ch)

  • Single crochet (sc)

  • Increase (inc.)

  • Invisible decrease (dec.)

  • Crocheting in back loops only and front loops only (BLO, FLO)


*I used glue to attach all pieces together except for the arms (which I sewed to the body). Sewing these items together would also be fine if you do not have glue or wish not to use glue.


**An increase is 2 scs in 1 stitch. A double crochet increase is 2 dcs in 1 stitch.


*** An invisible decrease is completed by following these instructions: 1. Identify the next two stitches you wish to combine into one. 2. Insert your hook into the front loop of the first stitch. 3. Insert your hook into the front loop of the second stitch. You should have 3 loops on your hook. 4. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. 5. Yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops.


The finished doll is approximately 3.5 inches tall, including the halo.


This pattern is written in US crochet terms.


I choose to begin by chaining two and then completing 6 sc starting in the 2nd ch from the hook. Of course, you may alternatively do a magic ring if you prefer.


Body


Begin with white yarn. Stuff as you go.


Round 1: ch 2, 6 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook (6)

R 2: inc. x 6 (12)

R 3: inc. x 12 (24)

R 4: 24 sc (24)

R 4: BLO 24 sc (24)

R 5-11 (7 rounds): 24 sc (24)

R 12: (2 sc, dec.) x 6 (18)

R 13: (sc, dec.) x 6 (12)


Change to beige yarn.


R 14: BLO inc. x 12 (24)

R 15-19 (5 rounds): 24 sc (24)


Embroider closed eyes near round 17 about 2.5 stitches apart. Each of the eyes I created is about 2.5 stitches wide. Add a nose in between and slightly below the eyes (mine is between rounds 16 and 17): insert a little bit of yarn into your tapestry needle and wrap around a stitch or two several times and tie your two yarn ends in the back (on the inside of the head).



Arm (Make 2)

Begin in beige yarn. Stuffing is not necessary.


R 1: ch 2, 6 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook (6)

R 2: 6 sc (6)


Change to white yarn.


R 3: FLO 6 sc (6)

R 4-9 (6 rounds): 6 sc (6)

R 10: Fold the arm half and close together with 3 sc (3)


F.o. and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew the arms onto the body so that they stick out forward a little bit (so that you can later position and sew the arms onto the body more easily). I sewed them near rounds 12 and 13.




Beard


Use brown yarn.


R 1: ch 9, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook complete: 3 sc, ch 2, sk 2, 3 sc


F.o. and leave a long tail for sewing. Glue or sew the beard on right below the nose.


Hair


Use brown yarn. Leave a tail of several inches before beginning if you wish to sew the top of the hair to the head.


R 1: ch 2, 6 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook (6)

R 2: (sc, inc.) x 3 (9)

R 3: (ch 12, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, complete 11 sc back down the ch, sc in the next stitch) x 9


F.o. and weave in the end(s).


Either glue or sew the top circle of the hair (rounds 1 and 2) onto the top of the head. Before attaching it, make sure that two strands in the front middle are centered for an even part. Next, use sewing pins to arrange each strand onto the head. (Be careful as you do so. The head is small, and so if you stick the pins all the way through, they will likely poke through the other side of the head.)


Next, either glue each strand onto the head or sew each strand onto the head. If you are sewing the hair strands down, I recommend sewing down one side of each strand and up the other side, sewing strands together where necessary to hide any gaps. If you’re gluing, a cotton swab (or similar object) might help you apply glue into small, hard to reach places.










Light Ray


Make one in light blue and one in red.


R 1: ch 5, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook complete 4 sc back down the ch %

(4)

R 2: ch 1, turn, 4 sc (4)

R 3: ch 1, turn, dec., 2 sc (3)

R 4-5 (2 rounds): ch 1, turn, 3 sc (3)

R 6: ch 1, turn, dec., sc (2)

R 7: ch 1, turn, 2 sc (2)

R 8: ch 1, turn, dec. (1)


Ch 1 and evenly sc around the light ray, completing 2 sc in each of the bottom 2 corners if necessary. (I did not add an extra sc in the top corners in order to keep a triangular shape). Sl st to the first sc you completed and f.o. If you are sewing the light rays on, leave a long tail for sewing. Otherwise, weave in both ends.


Glue or sew (sing beige yarn) the hands/arms on the body in the position shown below. The left hand should be attached to the top middle of the body. The right arm should be bent and raised so that the hand reaches the top right of the body. (If you are gluing, use pins to hold the position until the glue dries.)


Glue or the top corner of each ray below the right hand. (I glued each entire light ray onto the body.)






Halo


Use gold yarn.


R 1: ch 2, 6 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook (6)

R 2: inc. x 6 (12)

R 3: (sc, inc.) x 6 (18)

R 4: (2 sc, inc.) x 6 (24)

R 5: (3 sc, inc.) x 6 (30)

R 6: (4 sc, inc.) x 6, sl st to the next stitch (36)


F.o. Either leave a long tail for sewing or weave in your ends and glue or sew the halo onto the back of the head with a new piece of gold yarn.


(If you glued the hair on, like I did, it might be a bit of challenge to sew the halo on because of the dried glue. I poked my needle around until I found a few areas that I could weave my tapestry needle through. I made sure at least one time my needle went through all the way to the head for extra security and sewed the halo down a few more places, just through strands of the hair).


Lastly, add a hook if you desire to turn your doll into an ornament. You can either weave a premade hook through your halo or you can make your own out of embroidery thread.


In order to make your own hook, follow these directions: weave a small piece of embroidery thread (or string/twine) through a couple of stitches at the top of the halo. Double knot the two ends to make a loop. Don’t trim the loose ends from the knot yet. Next, slide the loop through these couple of stitches until the knot is touching the halo. Use the loose ends to tie a second knot to secure it to the halo and then weave the loose ends into the halo.
