1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: hooded scarf without pointy hood? on: November 18, 2008 09:22:52 AM
Crochet pattern central doesnt have one without the point. I've also been searching around to find a pointless hood! No luck so far! Im almost positive that iv'e seen one before a while ago but of course I didnt bookmark it. Booo.
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: what is the most duable yarn for amis on: November 18, 2008 09:20:16 AM
Im going to echo everyone here and say Red Heart super saver is great, inexpensive and I think it is pretty quick to work with, if that makes sense. There isnt a lot of friction with the hook. However, my favorite yarn to use for Ami's is the super cheap cotton yarn. I'm pretty sure its called Sugar and Cream, at A.C Moore/Michael's it is at least, I think Wal-Mart has the same thing but its under a different name. It's all cotton so its heavier than say a worsted acrylic, and holds up really well for ami's although it is less forgiving as far as looks go as there isnt any fuzziness to cover up any mistakes. Good luck Smiley

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Peace Dove/Bird pattern help, please! on: November 13, 2008 11:17:13 AM
Hi guys! Ok so Ive been searching and searching around for a dove/bird pattern that is more sculpted and curvier than just a round shape, and I found one, but the site was deleted, but thank goodness for the wayback machine!
So heres the pattern...

Totally what I was looking for....but once I get to round 12 of the body im like WTF?!? That ch 7 part is whats getting me...I already tried it a few times but it just doesnt make sense or fit up, the number of stitches per round are incorrect as well and I think thats throwing me off too.

Has anyone done this pattern before? Or have any of you done this type of bird and have a better pattern or advice on how to just do one on my own? It cant be *that* hard right?

Thanks so much in advance! You guys are awesome. Smiley

Thanks so much!

The rattle idea is cute, indeed...although im not really into baby stuff. Its a good idea to keep in mind though for a quick gift just incase!

Thank you guys for the nice comments!! I appreciate it a ton Smiley

Well, I have a couple more deer heads started...going to do one or two with antlers and probably some hats and stuff. haha
I was thinking of doing maybe a lion, a giraffe, a moose, a zebra. I was going through these bizarre photos of peoples taxidermy collections and got inspired by those.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Super easy bag, or what happens when you teach yourself to crochet on: October 15, 2008 10:12:58 AM
It looks great!
I actually prefer doing bags and pouches with the method you used...just going around and around and around...It loooks nice and neat, plus!! no seams! You did a great job Smiley
Thats the best method of learning...just trying out different stuff and seeing what works and what doesnt and what YOU like to do...you know?

Oh man those are SO pretty. I was just going through a book for snowflakes the other day and was kind of scared at how difficult they looked but after seeing these i think I may have to give them another try. Beautiful!

Hey everyone! This is my first time posting one of my own projects, wee! I recently started to get wayy into amigurumi and started quite a few projects. This little guy/girl is going to be part of a collection of...animal heads. I keep running out of yarn on all the other guys though before I can finish them. haha
Here it is!





The only thing left for it is im not sure if I should affix them to wooden plaque type of things and paint those... or if I should paint a canvas and attach them to the canvas...hmm.

Thank you for looking!
