1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Iron Man - with removable helmet! on: July 19, 2012 08:20:43 AM
Next in my Avengers series (Captain America and Thor already done) and was the most challenging so far, the visor gave me a lot of problems and I'm still not 100% happy with it, I think it looks a bit like a duck/piece of toast, but this can be Mk 1 .







Hope you like him!

Some of you might remember the Thor I posted a couple of weeks back, well, the next in my series of Avengers amigurumi is now complete! I present to you, Captain America!

I had a lot of trouble with the stripes on his body, no matter what technique I tried they always ended up veering off to one side, maybe I was doing something wrong, but hey ho, I gave up and embroidered them on in the end and I think it looks pretty good!


You can see the detail on the side of his helmet here.

Hope you guys like it!  Grin next on the list, Iron Man! Stay tuned...

I didn't have to brush too much as it was already quite a fluffy wool, just enough to give it a bit more volume really  Grin

This is the first in my series of Avengers amigurumi I am making



I kinda kept a track of the pattern as I was going along, although just for the basic doll shape so I can make more characters, everything else I kind of made up as I went along but there was nothing horribly complicated.



Here he is just chilling out with Deadpool in my living room, I haven't made Thors hammer yet, planning on making it from sculpey clay, which I have bought so I'm part-way there!



Some close-ups on the detail of the helmet.
I'll add some pictures of the hammer as soon as it's ready

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Wooly Mammoth with free pattern in this post! on: May 19, 2012 09:58:13 AM
Hi everyone! I've not posted here in an awfully long time, but I am back with a free pattern.

Like so many people, Skyrim kinda took over my life for a time (I've weaned myself off it for a while now) and during one of many occasions where I was chased over the tundra by an angry mammoth I thought to myself, gee, I should really crochet one of those.

So I did.







I have decided to post the pattern in the actual post now, just to make it a bit easier for people to find :-)

I use a chunky weight alpaca wool and a 5mm crochet hook, then brush all the head and body all over when Im done to make him extra fluffy.

Note, all the pieces are designed to be used right-side facing out, I do this by turning the pieces inside out about 2 rounds before the end, and then stuffing them, then finishing off.

Head
R1: Ch 2, 6 SC in 2nd ch frm hk
R2: Sc in each st around (6)
R3: Sc 2 in each st around (12)
R4: Sc in 1st st, Sc 2 in next st, rpt rnd (18)
R5: Sc 1 in first 2 st, Sc 2 in next st, rpt rnd (24)
R6: Sc 1 in first 3 st, Sc 2 in next st, rpt rnd (30)
R7: Sc 1 in first 4 st, Sc 2 in next st, rpt rnd (36)

R15: Sc in first 3 st, Decrease over next 2 st, rpt rnd (24)
R16: Sc in first 2 st, Decrease over next 2 st, rpt rnd (18)
Insert safety eyes here and begin to stuff firmly
R17: Sc in first st, Decrease over next 2 st, rpt rnd (12)

Use invisible close method to finish piece

R7: Sc 1 in first 4 st, Sc 2 in next st, rpt rnd (36)
R8: Sc 1 in first 5 st, Sc 2 in next st, rpt rnd (42)
R9-11: Sc all around
R12: Sc in first 5 st, decrease over next 2 st rpt rnd (36)
R13-15: Sc all around
R16: Sc in first 4 st, decrease over next 2 st, rpt rnd (30)

R19: Sc in first  st, decrease over next 2 st, rpt rnd (24)

Stuff firmly
