11  Easter bunny (now with pattern) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Atrandom on: April 04, 2009 07:27:42 AM
I've finally finished my first amigurumi! Took me a while since I was never statisfied with the embroidered face... I still think it looks a bit creepy but that's the best I could do! I ordered some safety plastic eyes so hopefully, next time, it will look less like the killer bunny from hell. I still love it to bits, tho!  Grin



Ok, here's a pattern. It's my first one so be indulgent!

Head
Ch 2 (or make magic ring)
R1: work 6 sc in second ch from hk (or in ring)
R2: *2 sc in each st* [12]
R3: *2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st* [18]
R4-R10: *1 sc in every st*
R11: *Dec, 1 sc in next st* [18]
R12: *Dec, 1 sc in next st* [12]

Fasten off

R13: *Dec, 1 sc in next st* [18]
R14: *1 sc in every st*
R15: *Dec, 1 sc in next st* [12]
Stuff with polyester filling and a large marble (to give it some weight)

Fasten off

Ears
Ch 10
Sc in 2nd ch from hook

Hdc (half double crochet) in next ch

Now, work on the other side of the beginning chain

Dc in next ch
Dc in next ch
Hdc (half double crochet) in next ch
Hdc (half double crochet) in next ch

Carrot

R1: 15 sc (do not crochet the last st)
R2: 14 sc (same)

Fold the triangle in half, sew and add some green yarn. Smiley

Sew all parts together and embroider face and nose.

Hope this is clear enough!

12  Amigurumi help needed in Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions by Atrandom on: March 29, 2009 08:59:35 AM
I've been working on my first amigurumi "ball", relying heavily on this tutorial. The ball came out great but there's a slight problem with the last (decreased) rows. The process of decreasing seems to let gaping holes appear, through which you can see the polyester filling (see picture). I'm afraid the filling will eventually come out through these! What can I do against it?



I tried to crochet tighter and to use a smaller hook for the last rows, which seemed to make the holes smaller. I'm still not satisfied with the results... Any ideas?

Thanks in advance! Smiley

13  Lily's blanket in Knitting: Completed Projects by Atrandom on: March 29, 2009 04:07:32 AM
I made this blanket for my best friend's baby. She's due in May and I wanted to make a personalised gift, something none else would give her! It's the first time I knit something that big, until now the only things I did were scarves and squares. It's not perfect and has a lot of irregularities, I hope she won't be too disappointed...



The pattern comes from a French magazine (Tricot facile) and is fairly simple to make. I used double yarn for everything.
I first knitted 6 moss stich plain squares (one in each color: blue, pink, purple, green, orange, beige).
Then I knitted 6 jersey stitch striped squares. The pattern alternates 3 white rows and 3 colored rows.
I sewed the 12 squares then made a border in garter stitch.







Thanks for looking! Smiley

14  Very first crochet project: a pink scarf! (Now with pattern) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Atrandom on: March 18, 2009 11:13:51 AM
I made this last year and I've been wearing it during two winters. It's a very simple pattern, yet it seems complicated enough to make people think I'm a crochet queen...  Cool Shocked



and a close-up



Here's the pattern I used (mostly triple crochets, crochets and slip stitches). Start with Ch 82. (You can start with fewer stitches but it has to follow the formula (8*n)+2)

15  Bracelets and keyhangers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Atrandom on: March 18, 2009 11:01:16 AM
I figured it was time I posted something hand made...  Grin

I used to give away or sell most of the jewelry I made but here are a few pieces I kept for myself:

A very simple green bracelets I've made a very long time ago:


My favorite! But I hardly wear it because I'm afraid it will lose its beads (plus it's annoying when you use a computer mouse)


A purple bracelet I've worn thousands of times (you can see it!):



I'm not sure keyhangers qualify as jewelry but they're still WIP anyway. They're waiting for crocheted flowers or beads (and I don't allow myself near a crochet until I finish my current project!)
