When Avengers first came out in 2012 (has it really been that long?), I went to the midnight showing. I was surrounded by people dressed in cosplay of every character that had even been glimpsed on the trailer. I had moved to a new town and I knew very few people, so I was alone. I sat in the third row, dead center, and it was so packed that there were people on either side of me.

And the movie absolutely blew me away. I have always been a fan of Marvel movies, less the comic books, but the Avengers movie really struck a chord with me. It’s sweet song triggered an obsession that’s been going on since.

Since I loved the movies so much, and I know I’m not alone, I was actually surprised to find that there were as few Avengers knitting patterns as there are. However, the patterns available are of really high quality, both premium and free. They’re well done or adorable or just plain awesome. Or all three. If I possibly could, I would knit everything listed here. (Time is, unfortunately, the limiting factor here.)

Charts

1-3. Removed at request of pattern maker

4. SHIELD Insignia Chart by Ellen Hyde

Finished SHIELD insignia chart

Though the example project for this sweet chart is a(n equally sweet) beret, you can see a bunch of other options in the projects on Ravelry: Hats, gloves, scarves… Like SHIELD’s agents, you’ll be ready for anything.

Skills needed:

  • Chart-reading
  • Colorwork

Gloves & Mittens

5. Cap Murica Mittens by Therese Sharp

Cap Murica Mittens knitting pattern

These sharp mittens will keep you from turning into a capsicle. Sure, the pattern costs money, but it’s such a well-done design. It’s even a little vintage–I bet mittens like these were really popular when Captain America first became popular.

Skills needed:

  • Colorwork
  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Chart-reading

6. Iron Man Gauntlets by Stacy Tabb

Iron Man Gauntlets knitting pattern

These fingerless mitts are perfect for the fall weather just around the corner, and think how cool they’d look on Halloween with glow-in-the-dark yarn for the reactor. They would also go really well with a Steampunk-esque Iron Man costume!

Skills needed:

  • Colorwork
  • Seaming
  • Chart-reading

7. Iron Man Mitts by Irene McCormick

Iron Man Mitts knitting pattern

These mitts are made child-sized for your little Iron Men and Women. (Again, think about the glow-in-the-dark yarn!) According to the description, there’s instructions for enlarging the mitts for adult hands. This is a really great introduction to colorwork and working in the round and a really great use for leftover yarn.

Skills needed:

  • Colorwork
  • Knitting in-the-round

8. The Hawk (Fingerless Gloves) by Liz Smith

The Hawk fingerless gloves knitting pattern

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hawkeye is an underloved character. The Fraction Hawkeye comic books, though, have drawn a substantial fanbase for the crap-sack tire fire of a human being that is Hawkeye. I love these fingerless gloves because they have the individual fingers built in. I can imagine Hawkeye wearing these!

Skills needed:

  • Colorwork
  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Crochet

Hats

9. Aww Hat by stars-inthe-sky

Aww Hat knitting pattern

Aww, hat.

Skills needed:

  • Aww, knitting in-the-round
  • Aww, stripes

10. Hawkeye by Heidi Narum

Hawkeye hat knitting pattern

This Hawkeye hat is reversible, just in case you need a quick costume change while you’re undercover. The doubleknit technique makes this hat extra cozy.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Colorwork
  • Chart-reading
  • Doubleknit

11. Loki Hat/Helmet by Chelsea Nicole Spangler

Loki Hat knitting pattern

And now for something completely different.

This hat goes well into costume territory, and what an awesome costume piece it is. The pattern comes with both a crochet-only tutorial and a crochet-and-knitting tutorial, along with instructions on how to construct it.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Crochet

Scarves

Okay, scarf. No plural this time.

12. Alien Glyphs Scarf from ConcertiGrossi

Alien Glyph Scarf knitting pattern

You’re back from Tahiti! Did you have a pleasant stay? Isn’t it warm there? Why would you need a scarf? Asking too many questions? No, I don’t think so.

Skills needed:

  • Doubleknit
  • Chart-reading
  • Colorwork

Sweaters

13. Captain America Knit Hoodie by Beth Kluckhohn

Captain America Hoodie knitting pattern

Though pretty much all of these projects are on my to-do list, this Captain America Hoodie is at the very top. There is absolutely nothing subtle about it and that’s why I love it so much. It’s a great, easy cosplay item. You know, for casual Fridays at work. Or laid-back Halloween parties. Or hanging out on the couch and watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier for the fiftieth time in the past couple of months.

Skills needed:

  • Chart-reading
  • Duplicate stitch
  • Seaming
  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Colorwork

14. Thor Cardigan by Annina Päivärinta

Thor Cardigan knitting pattern

This cardigan is another one of those pieces you can probably get away with wearing in public with only a select few recognizing the reference. This is how you separate non-future-friends (those who cannot) from future-friends (those who can). This is also a classy cardigan that I can totally see Thor wearing while he’s on Midgard.

Skills needed:

  • Button-holes
  • Cables
  • Seams
  • Crochet

Toys

When it comes to Avengers-themed knitting patterns, the toys are out in full-force. In every conceivable character and in every soft and squishy toy form possible.

15 & 16. Avengers Finger Puppets from Knitknacks; Incredible Hulk Finger Puppet by Katherine Dobedoe

Avengers Fingerpuppets knitting patternIncredible Hulk Fingerpuppet knitting pattern

The details on these little finger puppets are impressive. And look! There’s Sam and Fury. With these little puppets, you could put on a show akin to Potter Puppet Pals. Just remember to video it for the internet.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • I-Cord
  • Embroidery

17. Black Widow by Irene McCormick

Black Widow knitting pattern

And Black Widow! Yay! (We all need more Black Widow. There is a serious lack of Black Widow merchandise.) This doll is sweet and it looks like a good intermediate project. I love the hair in particular.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Loop stitch
  • Embroidery

18. Captain America from Nerd Knitting

Captain America knitting pattern

This Captain America knitted doll pattern is such a cute version of the classic Captain America costume (though it doesn’t have those booty shorts and tights). He’s even got that Steve Rogers smirk.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Colorwork
  • Embroidery

19. Captain America Teeny Dude by Irene McCormick

Captain America Teeny Dude knitting pattern

This Captain America pattern goes beautifully with the Black Widow doll above. You can recreate Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the entire brotp. (We need a Sam doll to complete the brot3.) It also has the Steve Rogers smirk. It’s adorable.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Colorwork
  • Embroidery

20. Iron Man Teeny Dude by Irene McCormick

Iron Man Teeny Dude knitting pattern

This Iron Man Teeny Dude knitting pattern has such endearing little details, from the embroidery on the face to the careful embroidery on the arc reactor.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Colorwork
  • Embroidery

21. Iron Man & War Machine by Irene McCormick

War Machine & Iron Man knitting pattern

Irene McCormick is a very prolific Avengers toy maker. These two dolls continue the theme of sweet and minimalistic plushies. And War Machine and Iron Man were definitely the original brotp when it comes to the Avengers.

Skills needed:

  • Seaming
  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Duplicate stitch

22. Loki by Emily Gaynier

Loki knitting pattern

And now we finally have a much-beloved villain! This doll would be much bigger than the Hulks featured here (but he could still totally take him). This doll is so intricate that his clothes can be removed, leaving his undershirt and pants for a far more casual Prince of Asgard.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Colorwork
  • Embroidery

23. Nano-Hulk by Knitpool

Nano-Hulk knitting pattern

Knitpool makes a whole bunch of delightful dolls and creates amazing little comics and stories about them (Deadpool is currently searching for Hawkeye). Nano-Hulk is the only pattern currently available on his Ravelry account. It’s adorable. And travel-sized, just in case he wants to join Deadpool on his search.

Skills needed:

  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Seaming
  • Embroidery

24. Pizza Dog by missmoodybear

Pizza Dog knitting tutorial

This one is less of a pattern and more of a photo tutorial, but experienced knitters can easily recreate the shapes used. I couldn’t not include it because it’s Pizza Dog. And Pizza Dog is a good dog.

Skills needed:

  • Pattern creation
  • Knitting in-the-round
  • Seaming

25. Roll the Dice by Andrea “Trooperschaf”

Roll the Dice knitting pattern

This stuffed dice pattern includes:

  • Avengers
  • Black Widow & Hawkeye
  • Captain America
  • Two versions of Hulk
  • Two versions of Iron Man
  • Loki
  • Thor
  • SHIELD
  • An empty chart

Plus several other fandoms! (The creator has other patterns that have DC and other publisher fandom stuff as well!)

Skills needed:

  • Colorwork
  • Chart reading
  • Seaming
