Hollow Knight


This pattern is inspired by Hollow Knight, the titular character from the Hollow Knight game series. With his wired horns and flowing cape, he’s definitely ready to traverse the Hallownest!

The pattern has been worked up in aran weight cotton yarn (Brand: Drops Paris), but you could substitute for a different weight/yarn type as long as you change the hook size accordingly.

But first a few details:

Terminology: The pattern is written in English, in standard US terminology

Measurements: The finished piece measures approx. 24cm tall to the top of the horns.

The horns are wired to achieve the trademark curvature – the pattern includes photo descriptions with tips on how to complete the wiring and their positioning.

What you’ll need:

  • Aran weight yarn (Drops Paris) – black, grey and white
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook
  • Black felt (for the eyes)
  • Stuffing material
  • Stitch markers and pins (optional)
  • Yarn needle
  • Craft wire or pipe-cleaners

Stitch Knowledge Required:

  • Magic ring
  • Slip stitch
  • Chain stitch
  • Single crochet stitch
  • Front loops only
  • Invisible decrease

And here’s a tour of what the finished article looks like:
