2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Easy Cowl (free pattern) on: November 17, 2010 02:00:17 AM
I have decided that everyone needs a cowl in their life. Maybe its the fact that the chunky wool is so easy to work up that I love them. Forgive me for looking so tired in the picture, it had been a long day

This pattern  is super easy and is a really fast Christmas present.

You will need:
7mm hook
chunky yarn of your choice

ch48
R1, sl st into first ch, ch 2, dc in every st around, sl st to join
R2-9 ch 2 dc in every st around

Shell edging
ch1, *sk 1, 5dc in next st, sk1, sc* rep around
attach yarn to the bottom and do the same.

See easy:)

Enjoy
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Conjoined Aliens (with Pattern) on: October 12, 2010 05:16:00 AM
It's been a long time since I have posted a pattern and I have been meaning to do this one for ages. While in the middle of a mad doodle session I came up with the idea for these guys.

Conjoined Aliens
You will need:
3mm hook
Stitch marker
100g of worsted weight yarn in a colour of your choice
A pair of 10mm and 5mm safety eyes
Fibre Fill
A needle to sew

Large part
R1: 6sc in ring
R2: inc in every st around (12sc)
R3: sc in first, inc in next, rep around (18sc)
R4: sc in first 2, inc in next, rep around (24sc)
R5: sc in first 3, inc in next, rep around (30sc)
R6: sc in first 4, inc in next, rep around (36sc)
R7: sc in first 5, inc in next, rep around (42sc)
R8: (ANTENNA ROUND) sc 3,* ch 6, ss in 2nd chain form hook and down the chain (5ss)(do this loosely to prevent curling) sc to join with rest of work* 5sc, rep form * the sc to end
R9-27: sc around, ss in next st, FO leave to one side.

Small Part
Rep large part until R17 DO NOT FO

Body
With a safety pin or stitch marker join a stitch from each part where you would like them to join. SC around until you reach the join then sc into the other marked stitch to join them. Sc around and rep the join on the other side. Continue to sc around for 8 rounds finishing at the right hand corner when the work is facing you,  when the piece is flat.

Add eyes and embroider mouths

Feet
The number of stitches you have at this point may vary so to make the feet take the number of stitches you have and % by 3. If it is a difficult number, like I had 89, inc to 90st to make it nice and even. Place marker, sc 15, count backwards from marker 15 sts and sc into that 15th st you counted and sc around to marker. so the first foot will have 30sc.

Sc around 2 more times

Dec round for feet
R1: sc in first 3, dec in next, rep around (24sc)
R2: sc in first 2, dec in next, rep round (18sc)
R3: sc in first, dec in next, rep around (12sc)
R4, Dec until closed, FO
Stuff as you are going along

Attach yarn to st next to first foot. Sc 15, count back 15 st on other side and join as you did for the first foot, sc around 2 more times and dec the same as first foot

Last foot, sc around in the remaining stitches for 3 rounds and dec the same as the other feet.

Hands (make 3)
R1: 6sc in ring
R2: sc around inc randomly twice (8sc)
R3-5: sc around, FO leave tail to sew

Sew the arms to the body and sew up any gaps that might be between the bodies or the feet. Experiment with different facial expressions for each hear and enjoy your freaky alien.


4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scabby Stick to Crochet Hook on: May 10, 2010 12:47:35 PM
Check out what Ive been up to.  I made my own crochet hook!

Recently one of my lovely Brittany hoots snapped in my bag, sad times Smiley I spent ages looking for a replacement and I have always been interested in making my own hooks and when I found a scabby old stick outside my house I thought it must be a sign. I found a few tutorials online from craftster and eHow and thought I would give it a go.  I started with scraping off all of the yucky bits like bark and bumps with a Stanley knife and shaped the tip into a rough point. I then drew with a pencil where I wanted to hook part to be cut and started working the shape with the Stanley knife. I used a nail file to make the groove deeper and then went to town with the sand paper and did a lot of the shaping of the tip with that. After going through 3 different grades of sand paper I then rubbed the hook with a candle to give it a nice shiny finish and used the heat from my hands to smooth it into the wood.

Then I tried it out and this is what I made for my friend Sam

I hope you like my new hook, I'm hoping to make more but I think a small saw and a sharper knife will make it easier.

R1: dc in 3rd chain from hook and in every st in ch
R2: ch 2, turn, *fpdc in first, bpdc in next, rep form * to end
R3 ch1, turn, sc in every st to end

rep row 3 untill desired length. Mine turned out to be 79inches

in second to last row dc in every st across
in last row, *fpdc in first, bpdc in next, rep from *to end, FO

Hood:
Fold the scarf in half and sew together from fold for 12 inches.

10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My Crafty Tattoo on: March 13, 2010 03:00:31 AM


Hello there. This is my new tattoo, the picture was taken right after I had it done, the colours are looking a lot darker now. It's on my thigh and I have a total crush on myself now  Wink I designed it myself, the hook is based on one that I actually own. The tattooist changed a few things like the scroll and the thread to make it look better but I totally love it. I'm a very happy bunny.
