31  Steely McBeam Steelers' Mascot in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hookinmouthcrochet on: March 29, 2012 09:04:38 AM


I made this custom amigurumi for a friend of my mom's. Unfortunately I only got one good picture before I sent it to him. This was probably the most tedious amigurumi I have ever made but I really liked how it came out. I might be making another one in the future, and if I do I will post more pictures of it, since I didn't make a pattern while I was making this one, so there may be some differences. Plus, I will be able to get some more angles. I used Red Heart Super Saver for all the crocheting, and felt for the facial features and Steelers logos. Let me know what you think!

32  Cupcake Potholders(Pattern Added and New Pictures) in Crochet: Completed Projects by hookinmouthcrochet on: March 29, 2012 08:58:18 AM


Cupcake Potholders I designed for a friend of mine a while back. I have updated the pictures, and the pattern is below:

Yarn:100% cotton Lily Sugar'n Cream Yarn in White 00001, Hot Blue 01742, Hot Pink 01740, and Scented ( I didn't have an ideal unscented purple available in my store) Lavender 24311. Since these yarns are 100% cotton, they are safe for actual use as potholders or hotpads and will not melt.

Gauge: G/6 4.25mm hook

I will separate this pattern into the different parts of the cupcake, at the end everything will be sewn together. The cupcake is worked from the bottom up, pay special attention to the order of the rows, since there is front and back post stitches as well as bobble stitches, it is important to stay on the correct side of your work or it will not look right.


Bottom of Cupcake: Start in pink
Foundation Chain: ch 21
Row 1: skip first 2 ch sp, dc in each remaining ch sp across, ch 2, turn
Row 2: dc in next 3 sp (do not skip first dc sp) *fpdc, dc in next 3 sp*, repeat * 4x across, dc in turn ch, ch 2, turn
Row 3: dc in next 4 sp (do not skip first dc sp) *bpdc, dc in next 3 sp*, repeat * 4x across, dc in turn ch, ch 2, turn
Row 4: dc in next 4 sp (do not skip first dc sp) *fpdc, dc in next 3 sp*, repeat * 4x across, dc in turn ch, ch 2,  turn
Row 5: dc in next 5 sp (do not skip first dc sp) *bpdc, dc in next 3 sp*, repeat * 4x across, dc in turn ch, ch 2, turn
Row 6: dc in next 5 sp (do not skip first dc sp) *fpdc, dc in next 3 sp*, repeat * 4x across, dc in turn ch, ch 2, turn
Row 7: dc in next 6 sp (do not skip first dc sp)* bpdc, dc in next 3 sp*, repeat * 4x across, dc in turn ch, ch 2, turn

Top of Cupcake: Switch to White, do not tie off, continue from bottom

Row 8: ch 1, sc across (this should be on the front of your work, where your post stitches are popping out), sc in turn ch, ch 2, turn
Row 9: *Bobble (do not skip first sc space in this row or any of the following rows of Bobbles), ch 1, skip next sc sp* repeat across, Bobble in last sc sp (14 Bobbles total), ch 1, turn
Row 10: skip first 2 sp, sc across (24 sc), ch 2, turn
Row11:*Bobble, ch 1, skip next sc sp* repeat * across (12 Bobbles total)
Row 12: Same as Row 10 (20 sc)
Row 13: Same as Row 11 (10 Bobbles total)
Row 14: Same as Row 10 (16 sc)
Row 15: Same as Row 11 (8 Bobbles total)

Tie off. For sprinkles on the cupcake, just randomly pull different colors of yarn through and tie off in the back. This can be done however and in whatever order you like.

Bow: Start in Blue
Foundation Chain:ch 17
Rows 1-3: dc across ending with dc in turn ch, ch 2, turn
Finishing: sc around all four sides and tie off
Middle of Bow: Start in Purple
Foundation Chain:ch 20
Row 1: skip first 2 ch spaces and dc across, tie off.
Weave in Edges, shape bow and wrap the middle part around. Secure with pins and sew together.

Hanging Loop: Start in Pink
Foundation Chain: ch 20
Row 1: skip first 2 ch spaces and dc across, tie off and weave in edges.


Back of Cupcake:Start in Purple
Foundation Chain: ch 20
Row 1: sc in each stitch across (20 sc)
Rows 2-12: inc, sc in each of the remaining sc spaces across (resulting in one more stitch added each row)
Switch to White here if desired or stay with Purple
Row 13: sc across
Rows 14-26: dec, sc in each of the remaining sc spaces across (resulting in one less stitch in each row)

Once you have all your pieces made, gather everything up, you will also need pins, sewing needles, and thread.
Sew the bow together as instructed earlier. After that you are going to want to sew the bow to the front of the cupcake, you can do it slanted like I did, or however you want. The next thing you want to do it fold the hanging loop in half, place it on the back side of the front of the cupcake, behind the bow. Sew it there. After that, match up the back of the cupcake to the front and pin it in place, then sew it together. Now you are all done!

I would suggest hand washing and/or spot cleaning these potholders, they might not stand up to machine washing. Or just hang them up in your kitchen for display!

33  A Few Cute Hat's I've Made in Crochet: Completed Projects by hookinmouthcrochet on: March 28, 2012 11:38:44 AM
I just thought I would post a few hats that I've completed over the past few months in one post rather than putting up a bunch of different posts. I hope you guys enjoy!



This first one is a Foofa (from Yo Gabba Gabba) hat I made for my daughter. I love the way it turned out and she has had a lot of fun with it too. The eyes and mouth are made of felt.



This one is a Black Spiderman hat I made for the son of a friend of mine. It was my first attempt at anything like this but I thought it turned out pretty decently. The eyes on this one are also made of felt.



This last one is a Minnie Mouse hat I made for a friend of mine's daughter. Everything is crochetted on it with the exception of the polka dots which are felt and sewed on. Unfortunately I dont have any patterns, because I didnt use any, but if anyone is interested in patterns, I would be more than happy to take the time to write them up.

34  Dr. Who Dalek Amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hookinmouthcrochet on: March 28, 2012 10:50:08 AM


This is the first Amigurumi I am submitting to the site, it is a cute little Dr. Who Dalek I made for a friend not too long ago. Ok, so it really isn't that little, it is about a foot tall and probably 8" wide. It is the biggest amigurumi I have ever made, but I needed it to be that big so I could fit as much detail as possibly without it looking sloppy. Let me know what you guys think! I hope you Enjoy!
