1  Jack o'lantern hat in Halloween Costumes by MirageTheDog on: October 29, 2006 01:09:29 PM
I already posted this to the knitting board, but I was excited, and I wanted to share here too.  Roll Eyes

In keeping with the season, I FINALLY finished the jack o'lantern touque I started last Halloween. I work at 5am, so I'm lucky if I can even get dressed in time, let alone into a costume. This way I'll be in the Halloween spirit, and I'll be able to cover my bedhead.  Grin

I made a Mr. Hat too!  Grin I followed the basic pattern by BlueAndRedCows, but I pretty much had to wing it because I was using a different weight of yarn and needle size. Plus I knit it flat, because I couldn't find my DPNs, and the seaming was a b*tch, let me tell you. I made it for a friend from work, but my sister fell in love with it, and now I might have to make another one. (Which leads me to another point, wouldn't Mr. Hat mittens be fun?)

Here he is in all his glory.

Thanks guys. I don't normally post things on here, so it's nice to recieve some positive feedback. I'm not a cape person either, but my sister loves to wear "unique" things. I don't even think she owns a pair of pants anymore, (just skirts) so this was right up her alley.

The pattern for the cape came from knit1 magazine (I believe it was the first issue). The pattern for the hat is this one http://bythehook.blogdrive.com/archive/110.html except that I used only one strand of yarn instead of two. It was really easy for a first crochet item. Just single and double crochet. And I just worked it up using some scaps of yarn from my stash. The fact that it matched so well is a total coincidence.  Cheesy


Here is a closeup of the buttons. I got them at Walmart of all places.  They had a whole collection of "vintage style" buttons.

My sister has been bugging me to knit her this cape for months, so as a Christmas/Birthday present, I finally got it made for her (and I learned how to crochet to make the hat too  Cheesy).

She really liked it. She even let me take photos.

Here's my panta. It's knit out of some Sugar 'n Cream cotton I had lying around. I love the cotton. It's soooo comfortable, and it doesn't irritate my forhead the way the arcryllic and wool does. I have 4 pink hoodies, so when I saw the pattern, it made sense to make it in pink.  Cheesy

7  my take on the ipod cozies in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MirageTheDog on: November 09, 2004 06:05:31 PM
I just got my iPod, and I wanted to keep it from getting scratched, but the only cozies I could find on here were crocheted, and I lack the skills to do that. So I improvised and made a quick one.


front


back

It's duct tape. Obviously that's cliche, but I thought the pink made it kind of cute. And it's holding up very well so far. Smiley

8  batman pin in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MirageTheDog on: October 19, 2004 02:17:56 PM
This is pretty much my first post on craftster, so I'm a bit nervous. Anyways, this is a pin I made over the summer.



The base was a cylandar shaped piece of foam, and I just cut plain stickers to look like Batman and stuck them on. Then I stuck a pin on the back. Easy.  Cheesy My boyfriend made a Superman one, but unfortunately I don't have a picture.
