1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ode to Elisabeth Doherty... needing help on: December 12, 2007 07:42:33 AM
I've attempted to make these as well.  I think she uses alternating rows of dc and sc for the shell (starting top down with dc).  The sc are in the second color.  If you are going to stuff with pellets (I just used regular stuffing), I would definitely go with the pantyhose idea.  I used a 4mm hook for mine.  Your example looks great as-is though!!

That's awesome!!  I'm so glad my pattern made some sense.  I'm currently working on a red one for my brother.

I used an F hook and regular worsted weight yarn (Caron Simply Soft).

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pinecones on: October 01, 2007 07:21:02 AM
Here are some pinecones I made this weekend.  I like to decorate with real ones (they're free!), so I thought having some soft ones around might be interesting too.



I can post the pattern if anyone's interested.

Here's the pattern for the larger gray one.  The brown one is done by skipping the extra (sc in each sc around) rows, rnd 7, 9, 11, etc.  Let me know if it doesn't make sense.

Rnd 1: 6 sc in a ring, pull closed
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)
Rnd 3: (sc in next sc, inc in next) around (18 sc)
Rnd 4: (sc in next two sc, inc in next) around (24 sc)
Rnd 5: (sc in next three sc, inc in next) around (30 sc)

Rnd 6a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (10 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 6b: In the back loops of rnd 5, (sc in next 8, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (27 sc)
Rnd 7: Sc in each sc around (27 sc)

Rnd 8a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (9 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 8b: In the back loops of rnd 7, (sc in next 7, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (24 sc)
Rnd 9: Sc in each sc around (24 sc)

Rnd 10a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (8 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 10b: In the back loops of rnd 9, (sc in next 6, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (21 sc)
Rnd 11: Sc in each sc around (21 sc)

Rnd 12a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (7 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 12b: In the back loops of rnd 11, (sc in next 5, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (18 sc)
Rnd 13: Sc in each sc around (18 sc)

Rnd 14a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (6 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 14b: In the back loops of rnd 13, (sc in next 4, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (15 sc)
Rnd 15: Sc in each sc around (15 sc)

Rnd 16a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (5 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 16b: In the back loops of rnd 15, (sc in next 3, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (12 sc)
Rnd 17: Sc in each sc around (12 sc)

Rnd 18a: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around, ch 1 (4 "petals" + ch1)
Rnd 18b: In the back loops of rnd 17, (sc in next 2, dec once) around, join, ch 1 (9 sc)
Rnd 19: Sc in each sc around (9 sc)

Rnd 20: In the front loops only, (sl and ch 3 in one st, dc in next, sl in next - 3 sts) around (3 "petals")

Fasten off, stuff and close hole.

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / From Beth Doherty's Amigurumi book on: September 30, 2007 10:57:20 AM
Here's the cat I made from the book.  I used mostly the Strawbeary pattern with some details from the Hep Cat pattern as well (to make her a cat instead of a bear).  I really liked Beth's 'Bianca' doll, so I made one similar.  I think she turned out pretty well  Smiley



I had issues with crocheting the fun fur, so I made a really long chain and coiled it around her head, then sewed it on.  Not the best idea, but it looks ok.

kate's post sounds right.  That's what I did with the patterns in Beth's book.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP with Beth Doherty's robot pattern on: September 28, 2007 08:10:51 AM
Ok, I'm sure we can get this worked out.  Are you supposed to get to 54 stitches after a certain number of rounds?  For example, is it something like , rnd 5-8, increase 3 stitches evenly, 54 stitches (at the end of rnd 8 )?  If so, how many rows, and what is the stitch count for the row before you start this instruction?
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP with Beth Doherty's robot pattern on: September 25, 2007 12:44:08 PM
How many increases are you putting in each round?  It sounds like there should only be three, so your rounds would have a stitch count of ... 45, 48, 51, 54... and so on.  The 'ripplyness' almost looks like too many increases.  If that's the top of his head, it should be more 'bowl' shaped.  Hope this helps!
