41  Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: February 02, 2011 10:08:24 AM


I'm not sure how much help my mini amigurumi of Obi-Wan will be, at only 3.5" tall, but he's still a comforting presence sitting by my computer.

 

I made a little version of the old, wise Ben Kenobi from the Original Trilogy then, with just a few variations to the pattern, I made the younger, fitter version of the character from Episode III. I was very pleased with the hooded robe I made for them - I don't usually make clothes and I was worried that something on such a small scale would be far too stiff, but it came out fine.

42  Mini Boba Fett Amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: January 11, 2011 12:13:07 PM


I've been working on getting this guy just right for a while. Christmas came along and got in the way, but I finally got him finished and photographed. Boba Fett, that fearsome bounty hunter, doesn't seem so tough when he's just 3.5" tall, but I think that being cute is an acceptable substitute.

43  The Owl and The Pussycat - free patterns! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: November 18, 2010 08:21:55 AM


After I made some mini witch and wizard amigurumis (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362445.msg4254327#msg4254327), I thought that they might like some little pets, so I came up with a tiny black cat for the witch and a mini snowy owl for the wizard. They're only 1.5" tall so they'd make cute little pocket pets for you too.



Here are the patterns - obviously you can use different colours of yarn for different types of owl or cat.

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
st = stitch or stitches
ss = slipstitch
sc = single crochet (US), double crochet (UK)
dc = double crochet (US), treble crochet (UK)
tog = together
sc2tog = decrease by working two sc together
FLO = work in front loop only
FO = fasten off

General instructions:
Work in rounds unless otherwise stated and do not join rounds unless told to. Use a stitch marker to mark the start of a round - a small piece of different coloured yarn placed under the stitch at the start of the round will do. To start a round, you can use the magic ring method, but I prefer (ch2, work 6 sc into 1st ch). If you work the 6 sc over the tail of yarn as well you can use that to pull the hole tight.

Work through both loops of stitches unless otherwise indicated.

Wizard's Owl



You will need:
Small amount of white yarn.
Small amount of black yarn for beak.
1 Pair of 7.5mm amber safety eyes.
Small amount of stuffing.
3.5mm (E) hook.

Start at top of head:
Round 1: Ch2, work 6 sc into 1st ch - 6 st.
Round 2: 2 sc in each st around 12 st.
Round 3: [2 sc in next st, sc in next st] 6 times - 18 st.
Round 4 - 7: (4 rounds) Sc in each st around 18 st.

Fit eyes between rounds 5 and 6, treating the start of the round as the front of the owl.

Round 8: [Sc2tog, sc in next st] 6 times 12 st.
Round 9: [2 sc in next st, sc in next st] 6 times 18 st.
Round 10 - 13: (4 rounds) Sc in each st around 18 st.

Find the stitch in the last round that is exactly in the middle of the back of the owl. Count back 5 stitches along the round (not including the middle stitch) and mark this stitch.

Round 14: Sc in each st around until you get to the marked stitch, [FLO sc in next st, hdc in next 2 st, dc in next 5 st, hdc in next 2 st, sc in next st], working through both loops again sc in each st to the end of the round 18 st.
Round 15: Sc in each st around (work into the back loops of the st in the previous round that were in FLO) 18 st.
Round 16: [Sc2tog, sc in next st] 6 times 12 st.
Round 17: [Sc2tog] 6 times 6 st.
FO, leaving a length of yarn. Using black yarn sew a beak. Stuff and use length yarn to sew up hole at bottom, pulling it tight up through the body to ensure that the owl will sit on a flat surface.


Witch's Cat



You will need:
Small amount of black yarn.
1 Pair of 7.5mm green safety eyes, or green yarn to embroider them.
Small amount of stuffing.
3.5mm (E) hook.

Special stitch instructions:
3 dc pop: popcorn stitch for ears. Work 3 dc into 1 st, take hook out leaving loop, put hook through 1st dc & pull loop through.


Start at top of head:
Round 1: Ch2, work 6 sc into 1st ch - 6 st.
Round 2: 2 sc in each st around 12 st.
Round 3: [2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 3 dc pop in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st] 2 times - 18 st.
Round 4 - 7: (4 rounds) Sc in each st around 18 st.

Fit eyes between rounds 5 and 6, treating the start of the round as the back of the cat.

Round 8: [Sc2tog, sc in next st] 6 times 12 st.
Round 9: [2 sc in next st, sc in next st] 6 times 18 st.
Round 10 - 13: (4 rounds) Sc in each st around 18 st.
Round 14: Sc in each st around until you get to the middle back, [tail: ss in next st, ch 10, ss into 2nd ch from hook, ss in next 8 ch, ss back into original st], sc in each st to the end of the round 18 st.
Round 15: Sc in each st around (work into the first ss of the tail, not the second) 18 st.
Round 16: [Sc2tog, sc in next st] 6 times 12 st.
Round 17: [Sc2tog] 6 times 6 st.
FO, leaving a length of yarn. Embroider eyes if you haven't used safety eyes. Stuff and use length yarn to sew up hole at bottom, pulling it tight up through the body to ensure that the cat will sit on a flat surface.

44  Witches and Wizards in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: October 20, 2010 02:31:56 AM
I've been busy recently making lots of mini witch and wizard amigurumis - each of them only 4.5" tall. Obviously inspired by Halloween but also by all the fantasy books I grew up reading, from The Witch Family by Eleanor Estes (with lovely illustrations by Edward Ardizzone - check it out here if you've never heard of it: http://tiny.cc/wpl9p), through Gandalf and Terry Pratchett's wonderful Discworld creations to all the eccentric characters in the Harry Potter books. There's something about a pointy hat that I just can't resist!

45  Panda in a red dress in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: October 20, 2010 02:12:49 AM
My 8 year-old son was invited to a friend's halloween party last Saturday and it was only at the last minute that I found out that it was his little sister's birthday. I decided to make her a little panda amigurumi, thinking that would be easier than going out and buying something - it is only about 5" tall but of course it still took longer to make than I intended!

Anyway, I was very pleased with the way it turned out - as I have boys I don't usually make toys with dresses, so that was fun to do - and the little girl liked it, so that was good.

46  An Elf, a Spirit and a Hobgoblin (... walked into a bar?) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: September 21, 2010 09:44:51 AM
Here are a few things I made over the summer, when I wasn't trying to occupy my kids. Two were based on patterns that I'd come up with before, and the other two were a chance for me to try out new ideas.

This is a Sky Sprite - if you are nice to her she will try to make sure that the sky stays blue as much as possible. She is a sister to the Dawn and Dusk Spirits that I've made before:

Here is a Tree Sprite, a copy of one I made some time ago. He likes to hide in trees and watch what's going on.




This guy is a Hobgoblin, that is to say a small and friendly goblin. He is very good at climbing, here he is trying to scale a big wooden mushroom.








I wanted to make some classic fantasy characters, and started with this Wood Elf. It was a change to make something with clothes, I tried to keep it simple but it would be fun to embellish them a bit more. I'm currently working on a Dwarf to go with him.







I'd love to hear any feedback!

47  Adorable Monsters - warning, monster-size pics! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: July 10, 2010 10:18:23 AM
Back in January (in the middle of the snow) I made cute little yeti-type guy, that I called an Adorable Snow Monster. I decided to write up the pattern, and since then I've been working on some variations.

   

I remade the original, and then I was given some lovely extra fluffy white and icy green mohair by my husband's great aunt which I thought would look good. The Wildly Adorable Snow Monster came out very fuzzy and very cuddleable!



I wondered what the same pattern would look like if I didn't use mohair, so I tried to make one with ordinary yarn. I had to use a different technique to make the ruff around the face, but apart from that the pattern was the same, and the lack of fluffiness made it look quite different. The big hands and feet stand out more, but I think it looks just as cute, and as if it wants to give you a hug. My first experiment was green and brown, so I decided it was a Tree Monster, then I made one with a nice self-striping yarn I'd just bought and that had to be a Rainbow Monster (he seems especially friendly!).

   

   

I thought I'd done enough pattern testing then, but my son begged me to make him a fire monster. I wasn't quite sure what colours to use, but in the end I went for different tones of red, starting with the darkest at the bottom to give the feeling of glowing embers. I brushed the mohair upwards on his head to give a bit of a flame effect, and the Flaming Adorable Fire Monster was born.

   

Please let me know what you think of them. I kept these quite simple, but it would be fun to experiment with adding extras like horns, spines, wings or spots, especially to the non-fuzzy monsters.

48  Ruby and Sapphire Dragonets in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: June 18, 2010 04:05:17 AM




I finished these some time ago, but completely forgot to post them here. They are Dragonets, small or young dragons. They are supposed to be 'life-size', at about 17.5" long with a 22" wingspan.





I experimented with two different types of eye, the Sapphire Dragonet has cat-type safety eyes while the Ruby Dragonet has clear glass beads. The wings are not wired, but are still fairly poseable because of the stiffness of the crochet, as are their necks and tails.

49  Little Red Imp in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Angry Angel on: June 17, 2010 09:38:56 AM
This is an imp, not a devilish one, but a little nature sprite that I found hiding in my garden. I'm hoping he'll keep the pests away from my plants, but he's as likely to eat my tomatoes before I get to them!





I made this little guy on a whim the other day. I had an urge to make a simple imp-like creature, so I scribbled a quick sketch then tried to make him look like it. I wasn't entirely happy with him until I added the details - the ears, the horns, the tail and the ruff round his neck. He's made with acrylic yarn, apart from his fur which is an alpaca mix and which has been brushed to make it fuzzy.

I put this guy in the Crochet Fantasy Challenge, so I hope it's okay to repost here. I was trying out a different shape with the big legs, and I'd really like some feedback as to what people think.

I hope this isn't too late, I tried to work out the equivalent time here in the UK but I wasn't sure about the summer variations.
