1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Coin Purse *With Free Pattern* on: July 26, 2011 01:50:52 PM
Don't you just love being able to make a new one of something you need/want instead of having to buy it?  It's more fun, I think.  That's why I now bring you this!



Cute, right?  Anyway, onto the pattern!

Quick Coin Purse

Supplies:
WW yarn in any color (1 or 2, your choice)
G hook
Large sewing needle

Bag
With WW yarn and G hook:

Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring, or ch 2 and sc 6 into 2nd ch from hook(6).
Rnd 2:  2 sc in each sc around(12).
Rnd 3:  Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around(18).
Rnd 4:  Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around(24).
Rnd 5:  Sc even(24),
Rnd 6:  Sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around(30).
Rnd 7 - 11:  Sc even(30).
Rnd 12:  Sc in next 3 sc, dec over next 2 sc around(24).
Rnd 13 - 16:  Sc even(24).
Rnd 17:  Ch 3, dc in each sc around(24).
Rnd 18:  Sc in the top of each dc around(24).  Sl st in next 2 sc, F/O, weave in end.

Drawstring
With WW yarn(same color as bag or a different color to match with the bag), and G hook, ch 76.  Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and each remainning ch(75 sl st).  F/O, weave in ends.  Weave the drawstirng into Rnd 17 of bag evenly.  Tie a knot into both ends of the drawstirng to keep it from coming out of the bag.  You can also sew a nice big bead to each end of the drawstirng.

Here's an extra picture for an idea of how big it'll be:



P.S.  If you want, you can sell these.  All I ask is that you give me credit for having made the pattern, and that you get a fair price for them.
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Miku Hatsune's Leek! *FREE PATTERN* on: March 31, 2011 11:40:46 PM
I've been trying to find a leak pattern I liked, but I had no luck.  I was going to give up until I thought, "Hey, I know how to write patterns!  I'll just come up with my own*in-put evil laughter*!"  Having a brother who's a fan of Miku Hatsune(the Vocailiod) helps.

Anyhoo, I'm proud of how the pattern turned out, so I'm sharing it with you all!  If you make one, I'd love to see it!



Life-sized Mikus Leak Amigurumi

Supplies
WW yarn in green and white(I used Red Heart Super Saver in Spring Green and White)
Fiber-Fill
F hook
Some kind of ref picture of Miku Hatsunes leak


Main Stalk and Body of leak

   With F hook and green yarn:

Rnd 1:  6 sc in magic ring or ch 2 and sc 6 into 2nd ch from hook. (6sc)
Rnd 2:  2sc in each sc around. (12)
Rnd 3:  Sc in 1st sc, 2sc in next sc around. (18 )
Rnd 4:  (in back loops only this rnd) Sc in each sc around. (18 )
Rnd 5 - 40:  Sc in each sc around, stuffing as you go(18 ).  In last sc of rnd 40, change to white.  Continue to stuff the leak as you go, as this will save you from a headache later.
Rnd 41 - 49:  Sc in each sc around(18).
Rnd 50:  Sc in next 7sc, dec over 2sc X 2(16).
Rnd 51 - 69:  Sc in each sc around(16).
Rnd 70:  Sc in next 7sc, dec over 2sc, sc in last 7sc(15).
Rnd 71 - 86:  Sc in each sc around(15).
Rnd 87:  (in back loops only this rnd)Sc in 1st sc, dec over 2sc around(10).
Rnd 88:  Dec over 2sc around(5).  F/O, leaving a tail long enough to sew up the hole in the bottom.  Doesnt have to be perfect, but try to do so neatly, adding any last bit of stuffing that might be needed before you close it up.


2nd Stalk

   With WW green yarn and F hook

Rnd 1:  6sc in magic ring or ch 2 and sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook(6).
Rnd 2:  2sc in each sc around(12).
Rnd 3:  Sc in next 3sc, 2sc in next sc around(15).
Rnd 4:  (in back looks only this rnd) Sc in each sc around(15).
Rnd 5 - 18:  Sc in each sc around(15).
Rnd 19:  Sc in next 7sc, 3sc in next sc, sc in last 7sc(17).
Rnd 20:  Sc in next 8sc, 3sc in next sc, sc in last 8sc(19).
Rnd 21:  Sc in next 9sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in last 9sc(20).  F/O, leaving a long tail for sewing.  Stuff firmly.  Use you ref picture for placement of the 2nd stalk and sew in place.




As a side-note, you can make a Tonfa(Billy club, nightstick, police club), by crocheting all the parts of the leak with one color, and leaving rnds 19 - 21 of the 2nd stalk off.  Sew the handle to the longer piece about 6 inches from the top of the fatter end.  This would be great for cosplaying Striker from Mortal Kombat.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Does anyone have a pattern for squid tentacles? on: January 25, 2011 12:14:22 PM
I'm wanting to make one of my brother's characters into a plushie for him for his birthday.  The character is a normal bunny, but has squid tentacles for ears.  Can anyone help me?  His birthday is this Friday!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lip Bam Cover *Pattern Included* on: January 04, 2011 01:45:03 PM
Okay, so I found a lip balm pattern on here that I fell in love with, but it's not really "kid friendly".  Seeing as how I spend every Wendsday with my nephews, I needed a cover that I could let the boys see.

It was way too easy to come up with one.


Wanna make one yourself?  Just look below!

Lip Balm Cover/Sock Key chains


Supplies:
WW yarn in one or two of your favorite colors
F or G hook(whichever one you are more comfortable with)




Note: I wrote the pattern for if youd be using two colors.  Simply leave out the color changes and do the number of rounds listed in the pattern.


The Pattern!
With first color of ww yarn and you choice of hook:

Rnd 1: Sc 5 into magic ring or ch 2 and sc 5 into the 2nd ch from hook (5)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (10)
Rnd 3: In front loops only this rnd, sc in each sc around (10)
Rnd 4: (in both loops again) Sc in each sc around (10).  In last sc of rnd, change to your 2nd color.
Rnds 5-7: Sc in each sc around.  Change back to your first color in last sc of rnd 7.
Rnds 8-10: Sc in each sc around.  Change back to your 2nd color in last sc of rnd 10.
Rnds 11-13: Sc in each sc around.  Change back to your first color in last sc of rnd 13.
Rnds 14-16: Sc in each sc around.  Change back to your 2nd color in last sc of rnd 16.
Rnds 17+18: Sc in each sc around.  F/O, weave in end.

Attach to a key chain, put a tube of lip balm in, and your done!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A hat for a little guy on: December 06, 2010 12:29:18 PM
So I was hunting around on Craftser when I found amydices Hanky pattern.(pattern is here -  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=365980.0 ) I bookmarked it, and waited for my husband to get home from work to show it to him.  He loved it, so I printed the pattern out.  Sadly, it didnt come with a pattern for his hat.  So, I came up with one of my own!



I dont have the hat on Hanky, as I still have to cut his face out and hot glue it on.  Ill add a picture of him wearing the hat when I get him done.

Now, for the hat pattern!



Youll need:
F hook ( 3.75 mm)
WW yarn in red and white

Note: I work in continuous rounds, but if you prefer to join your rounds, by all means, do so.  Also, if you dont like to use the magic ring, or dont know how to do it, just chain two and sc 3 into the second chain from the hook for round 1.

Rnd 1: 3 sc in magic ring (3)
Rnd 2: Sc in each sc around (3)
Rnd 3: 2 sc in each sc around (6)
Rnd 4: Repeat rnd 2
Rnd 5: Sc in first sc, 2sc in next sc around (9)
Rnd 6: Repeat rnd 2
Rnd 7: Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (12)
Rnd 8: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 9: Sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (15)
Rnd 10: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 11: Sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (18 )
Rnd 12: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 13: Sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (21)
Rnd 14: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 15: Sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (24)
Rnd 16: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 17: Sc in next 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (27)
Rnd 18: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 19: Sc in next 8 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (30)
Rnd 20: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 21: Sc in next 9 sc, 2 sc in next sc around (33)
Rnd 22-25: repeat rnd 2.  In the last sc of rnd 25, change to white.
Rnd 26-28: repeat rnd 2.  F/O, weave in ends.

Add either a handmade or store bought pom-pom to the first round of the hat.  Now all you have to do is put this on your Hanky!
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dish Cloths! on: November 29, 2010 12:18:52 PM
Just thought I'd share these.




A little plain, I know, but I want to make things people use, too.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cat Toys *Pattern Included!* on: November 29, 2010 11:07:21 AM
This is my first time posting a pattern to this site, and it's the first pattern I've made. I've tested it multiple times myself, but if you find any problems with it, please let me know!



Quick `n Easy Catnip Toys


Supplies
* WW yarn in any multi or solid color
* G hook
* Poli-fiberfill
* Dried catnip (I use SmartyKat Organic catnip)



Note: Gauge isn't an issue, just make sure your stitches are tight enough to keep the catnip and fiberfill from showing through or coming out. Also, this toy is made in just two parts! My cats Gamma and Zeta love them, and your kitty will, too!




The Ball
With WW yarn and G hook:


Rnd 1:  6 SC in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2:  2 SC in each SC around (12)
Rnd 3:  2 SC in each SC around (24)
Rnd 4-9: SC in each SC around (24)
Rnd 10: DEC over 2 SC around (12)
* Start stuffing at this point by either mixing fiberfill and catnip together, or stuffing the toy in layers of fiberfill and catnip. Continue to stuff in either matter as you finish up in the next step.
Rnd 11: DEC over 2 SC around (6).  F/O, leaving a long tail for sewing.  Add any stuffing needed to finish out the shape now. Weave the tail through the last rnd made, pull gently to close. Secure and weave in end.


The Tail
With WW yarn and G hook:

Slip stitch to join new yarn to ball at the last step done. Chain stitch until the chain is as long as you want(I like to make mine 12-18 inches long). Once your chain is the length you want, slip stitch or SC back down your chain. Once you get back to the start of your chain, slip stitch to the ball again.  F/O, secure and weave in ends.

Give it to your cat to enjoy!


As a quick side note, you can also ch 2 and SC 6 into the second ch from the hook if you don't know how to use the magic ring or don't like using it.
