2  A Prince Among Men in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: May 07, 2014 08:23:10 AM
IThis is my newest nephew wearing his princely robes and crown I made him from Red Heart Super Saver yarn.  The trim is white super saver yarn and white eyelash yarn to give it that "fur" look.
I purchased the pattern from here: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/162339130?ref=fb2_tnx_title
The first time I made it the crown was so tiny it would fit a cat! I emailed the designer and she told me that I must crochet very tightly (I don't think so) and to go up a needle size of two.  I tried 2 sizes bigger and it was two big so I tried a 6.5 mm hook and the crown looked about right finally.  Judging by the way the robes looked on my nephew I obviously should have made the robes a tad bigger by adding maybe 10 to 15 more rows. The crown could have been just a tad smaller as well. The outfit is absolutely great looking but I am not sure if the pattern  was just poorly written or maybe it was just me.  I struggled and struggled to make it and was extremely glad to be finished with it. Thanks for looking.

My Kermit the frog worked in single crochet. Really not liking it.  Any ideas on how I can make the black look a bit better?  Maybe two rows of black instead of one?  Pattern can be found here:

5  Easy, peasy in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: March 17, 2014 02:42:17 PM
My new nephew chillin' in his new Mom hat.  This has got to be the easiest thing I have ever made.  I was going to buy a pattern but then thought I could easily make it.  I was right! I chose a plain old regular beanie pattern(forgot which one it was but trust me use your fav).  I single crocheted a white banner and stitched Mom on that; crocheted a heart; stitched the heart to the hat then the banner onto to the hat and it was done.  I swear less than an hour for this project.  Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.

6  Up, Up and Away! in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: February 24, 2014 10:44:11 AM
Superhero Baby blanket I made for my new nephew.  Made entirely out of Red Heart super saver yarn. Patterns can be found below. I did modify them a bit to be 50 X 50 stitches for each square. Stitched using single crochet but worked up really, really fast. Took me three days.

Superman; Batman; Green Lantern and Flash as well as many others can be found here:

7  Skeletons in my closet in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: February 20, 2014 09:49:56 AM
Or on the bed. Which ever you prefer. Skeleton afghan almost done.  I ran out of blue (short 2 rounds can you believe it?) If I cannot find the match I will finish it off and use it as is.  It is about the size of a single bed. Worked up incredibly quickly. I will most definitely do this pattern again.

The skull pattern can be found here:
http://fearandloathingwithyella.blogspot.ca/2012/11/crochet-skull-pattern.html

Then I crochet as if doing granny squares. 4 dc groups across the top and 6dc groups down the side + 2 tr along the jawline. If you look closely at the close-up pic you will get my meaning. Made entirely in Red Heart super saver yarn.

8  The Excorcist in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by anderlance on: January 19, 2014 02:14:12 PM

Exorcist: Regan & Father Merrin amigurumi.  My cousin Ashley sent me this photo asking me if I could crochet this for her. 


I like a challenge so I agreed. I crocheted Regan, Father Merrin, their outfits, the quilt, the mattress, & the pillow. The bed we cut out of scrap wood and then painted black. Keep in mind when you look at the photos their hair is messy because lets face it; nobody looks their best when they are possessed or battling demons. Also I still have not found the right eyes to add to the Regan doll but will keep looking.  If anyone can point me into the right direction that would be great.  I'd like the eyes to resemble snake eyes or something similar to that.  Thanks for viewing!

9  I'm done! I'm done! in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: December 13, 2013 06:37:31 PM
My nephew Bradley has been a lacrosse player for about 4 years now and loves the sport with a passion.  When I asked him what kind of blanket he would like me to make for him for his birthday he did not hesitate when he said a lacrosse player. 3 months later; here are the results.  I am stoked and this was his reply when he saw it after I messaged him.

"Omg!!!!! That is feakin' awesome!!!! That's looks amazing!!!! I never thought it would look so awesome!!! Thanks so much Auntie Bev! It looks awesome!! Thank you!" 

Pretty nice eh? (I know, my Canadian is showing.) I received 2 thank you's and 3 awesome's and 1 amazing!

Crocheted with Red Heart Yarn using afghan stitch. Thanks for looking.

10  Knight in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: December 13, 2013 02:43:24 PM
This seems to be the thing everyone wants in my household for Christmas; a winter hat that resembles a knight's helmet. Crocheted with Red Heart yarn. Thanks for looking!










The pattern was very, very easy to follow and I was impressed with the results. I purchased the pattern here:
