1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / MANLY crochet! on: May 14, 2011 12:28:39 PM
When I want to make a realistic girl ami, I use this pattern from Ravelry-

http://www.ravelry.com/projects/irenestrange/patch-doll-amigurumi-pattern

She doesn't have much in the, um, chest area  Cheesy but she has curvy hips, thighs and calves and her elbows and knees are in the right places!

I'm having a great deal of trouble finding a similar pattern for a male doll. I'm not going to be crocheting Conan the Barbarian- although that would be pretty awesome  Grin-  but I want a bit of definition in the arms and legs, and most if not all of the patterns I've found just have tubes with bobbles on the end  Undecided

Can any craftster help me? Thank you!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another OTDT- One Tiny Disney Thing? on: March 13, 2010 04:01:00 AM
I love OTT swaps, but I'm not so into Harry Potter or Twilight...so does anyone feel like participating in a Disney round? Here are the links to some previous galleries, I participated in rounds 2 and 3-

I can't organise, but I thought I'd post here anyhow  Smiley is anyone interested?

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / pointed-ended scarf- pattern needed on: January 26, 2010 03:05:52 AM
I'm looking for a scarf pattern where the ends of the scarf are pointed, rather than square, and pointed like a right-angled triangle, rather than an arrow shape (I really hope that's clear, I spent ages trying to make a diagram using the symbols on my keyboard but failed!)

I'm sure this kind of thing should be easy in theory  Undecided  just increasing each row, right? As an inexperienced crochet-er, I'm uneasy about starting something without a pattern, especially since I'm working towards a swap deadline again. Can anyone help me out?

PS- it's not going to be so much of scarf, as a long tentacle  Grin I'll post pictures when I'm done if the project turns out successful!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Mini Top Hat Crochet Pattern on: January 06, 2010 06:56:20 AM
Does anybody know where I can find one? I've found top hat patterns which might fit on an amigurumi plushie, and full size top hats for adults, but I'm looking for a burlesque kind of size- like a fascinator. I'd happily pay for one, but I'm working towards a swap deadline so I can't really go and hunt down one from a book. Thanks everyone!
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Altered Fairy Tales- a Round 2? on: September 17, 2009 03:28:13 AM
I just found this-

whilst browsing through the old swap galleries, and, *gasp!* Everything is so beautiful!

Here is the original post, including the 'rules' for the swap and more on the general theme-

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=259501.0

I think this is such an amazing idea, I want to take part in one myself! Since I'm not qualified to organise, and certainly don't have the time, I thought I'd post here to see if anybody else was interested. I think it's certainly suitable for dark winter months Smiley
