Crochet Navi/Fairy Pattern

IMG_2974
Here’s my free pattern for Navi! As always, if you have any questions about the pattern just let me know 🙂

This pattern can also be used to make Tatl, another fairy from Legend of Zelda. Just use a light yellow yarn instead of blue. If you want to make Tael, the dark purple fairy, I’ll have another tutorial for that one later 😉

Sl st and cut your yarn, leaving a long thread. You’ll need enough to sew the wing together and attach to the body.
Fold in half with right side facing out.
Use a tapestry needle to stitch the two sides together, by going through the BLO.

Bottom Wings (make 2)
With white yarn
r1: magic ring (6)
r2: 6 inc (12)
Sl st and cut your yarn, leaving a long thread. You’ll need enough to sew the wing together and attach to the body.
Fold in half with right side facing out.

Assembly

Attach the bigger wings on top and the smaller wings about 5 rows beneath the top wings. Both should have the curved side facing down.

Here’s a more detailed process of how I attach the wings so they are secure, but flexible. The top wings should be 4 stitches apart (2 away from the center).

For each wing, pull the yarn through 2 rows of the body.

Then pull it through the second loop on the bottom of the wing.

Go back through the same 2 rows in the body as before.

Go through a stitch on the top of the wing and secure the yarn with a knot. Hide the tail in the body.

Repeat for all 4 wings and you’re done!

  1. Thank you for such a wonderful pattern!! It’s so lovely that you posted this for free. Really beautiful and easy to follow.

    May I ask, how would I scale this up so I can make a larger one? I’ve not been crocheting long so am not good at adapting patterns.

    Thanks again and keep going!! 🙂

    1. Thank you! To make a larger one, you could simply use 2 strands of yarn at once and up your hook size.

      Or you could double the stitch count and rows. So for the body, instead of stopping at 24 stitches at the largest point, you could keep increasing 6 stitches a row until you reached 48 stitches around. And then you’d need to add more rows of 48, instead of just 5, try 10 (or until you feel you’ve created a circle). And then decrease by 6 again until you reach 6 stitches. You’d do the same for the wings, increase up to 48 (bigger wings) & 24 (smaller wings) and then fold in half. Then you should end up with a much more sizeable fairy 🙂

      Hope that helps!
