1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Grahh! Flat circle won't stop going ruffly! on: February 13, 2014 07:06:47 PM
I am not familiar with the pattern but my first guess upon  seeing it is too many increases.  It looks like rnd 3 you are still *inc around* instead of *inc, sc* like you typically see in an amigurumi head.

Its been a few days so Im wondering if you have had any luck?
If not can you find a picture of what a finished doll from this looks like?
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: what is the best book to learn amigurumi? on: February 13, 2014 06:56:20 PM
Hi!

Since you are familiar with crochet I think the best book for you would be more based on interest. Have you looked at the books called Zoomigurumi by amigurumipatterns website? I have not bought them but the designs are really great and I do own patterns by more than one of the featured designers. They are well written and so I imagine the book is as well.

I've been making amigurumi for years and I started with Creepy Cute Crochet and Elisabeth Doherty's book. While I love the designs I do not recommend those to begin. I went with Creepy Cute because of the size and simplicity but the way the patterns are written can be pretty confusing.

Happy crafting! Amigurumi is a lot of fun Smiley

I use deviant art for everything pretty much. It's not frowned upon there to say you're selling. I even just found there is an etsy sellers group that you can submit your pics with listing link. Smiley

@KittyPT -
sc INC means 2 sc in the same stitch. INC is short for increase. This is how you get a higher number of stitches for the next round.

HTH!

I understand that feat, since I too make hats. The box size I have is about 2'x2'which makes hat photos near impossible. I've been thinking of screwing together some 1x1s to make a box size suited to me since the sides need to be removed anyhow. I first attempted this project with a larger box nearly 3'x3' and after the cutting, the sides collapsed! x.x

I am in an apartment, so just the difference of the daylight mocking bulb made a big color difference!

I dont know very much about the doll world, but I do know that ball-jointed dolls (BJDs) have a pretty large following on etsy, so if the clothes fit them as well as the barbie dolls it would be a good way to expand your demographic without changing the product.

I used this tutorial:

After starting to use the light box I saw an instant difference in my photos with a few year old Nikon Coolpix point and shoot, often using the macro setting.

Heres a couple of my images for reference in the quality difference.

It took me the better part of the week to make this guy...especially the feet and 'baggy look' of the pants. Naturally, the hair was time consuming as well.

I did him without a pattern.
My goal at first was to come up with a body pattern ideal for me - which I must admit, Im pretty happy with it.
I tried to write it as I went, but that got frustrating and confusing...but I'll try again next time!





C&C please! Cheesy
