41  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Round Ripple Collection on: February 07, 2008 11:12:28 AM
I got the last of these made just before Christmas, and didn't get around to photographing them until yesterday.

The Rainbow blanket was my first attempt, and it was made using a variety of Bernat Satins. I was hoping it would turn out looking more blended than it did. Oh well. The purple blanket was made using Bernat Masala in "Violet Veil" and I think it's my favorite right now. The camouflage blanket is Bernat Camouflage in "Outdoor." Can you tell my local craft store carries a lot of Bernat wool? Smiley

If anyone wants the pattern I've posted some links to places you can find it on my blog, http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/2008/02/my-round-ripple-collection.html

Thanks for looking!










42  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Futurama Nibbler (now with link to pattern!!!) on: January 23, 2008 01:23:51 PM
I've started a blog, and I've finished writing out the Nibbler pattern and posted it over there. Enjoy, and if anyone makes their Nibbler a crochet ham I'd love to see it.Wink http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

Nibbler is my favorite Futurama character. I started working on this over Christmas break, and at last he's done. I did all the crocheting, and my boyfriend stuffed him (my least favorite part of crafting). No pattern, just made him up as I went.



I did the eyeball first and then worked down to the head, all as one piece. Then all the other pieces were crocheted separately and sewn on. The eyes and fangs are made out of felt. (And you know you're too obsessed with details when you find yourself cutting apart wiggly eyes so that the black center on your felt eye will be the exact right size!)



I got it into my head that it would be a good idea to knit the cape, rather than buying fabric. I already had the red wool after all...In the end it took me longer to knit the cape than it did to make Nibbler's entire body. The cape's collar is croceted and then I joined stitches to the base of it, and knit the bottom part.



The white eyeball, yellow booties, and red cape are all made with Bernat Satin that I had left over from other projects. His muzzle and stomach patch are made from Bernat Super Value wool in "natural" and all the black is also Bernat Super Value. Over all, not very expensive to make!

Thanks for looking  Cheesy
43  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Kitty on: December 21, 2007 02:06:13 PM
Just celebrated Christmas with a couple of our friends the other day and one of my best friends bought me a huge bundle of post eyes in all shapes and sizes to encourage my amigurumi obsession. Here's my first project made with them.

This kitty is based on the Gumball kitten pattern found at:

http://falwyn.wordpress.com/2007/11/03/gumballpattern/

I used all scrap wool left over from other projects, and stuck a piece of pipe cleaner in the tail so that I could shape it a bit. I changed the ears a bit from the original pattern, but they still aren't as triangular as I'd like.





44  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cthulhu Couple on: November 15, 2007 03:06:00 PM
Just in time for Valentine's Day, I've created a pattern for this cute little couple. It's available on my blog at http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

A couple of months ago I made my boyfriend this dark green cthulhu, and he insisted that it needed a girlfriend cthulhu to go with it. My boyfriend did the stuffing and I did the crocheting...

Thanks for looking!

45  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Firefly Browncoat Snowman on: November 15, 2007 02:46:23 PM
I've been making Christmas decorations lately and thought I'd share this Browncoat themed snowman I've made. If you're a fan of the TV Show Firefly or call yourself a Browncoat, you'll understand why I've chosen this colour combo.

Pretty cunning don't ya think?

46  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Snowflake Afghan on: October 15, 2007 02:08:48 PM
This is the Snowflake Afghan that I just finished making for my boyfriend's mom for Christmas. It's made with Bernat Satin in Admiral and (appropriately enough) Snow coloured worsted weight yarn.



47  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cthuhlu Amigurumi on: October 15, 2007 02:05:24 PM
For my boyfriend's birthday I gave him a copy of the game Cthuhlu Munchkin and made him this Cthuhlu amigurumi to go along with it. It was loosely inspired by the pattern that's available from NeedleNoodles on Etsy.com, but for the most part I improvised.







His wings (which I wish would stand up better) were adapted from a pattern I found for a flying pig and his tentactles and fringe at the base were made using picot stitches in the front loop of the crochet stitch, then I sc behind them, in the back loop, when I made the next round.
48  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / One-Skein Scarf Question on: October 15, 2007 01:31:21 PM
I want to make a One-Skein Scarf for someone for Christmas, but I need it to be shorter. She's only about 5 ft. tall and I'd like to reduce the scarf from 96 inch. to somewhere between 60-70 inches.

In the instructions it says you can change the length as long as it's "a multiple of 4 + 3 stitches." What does that mean? I thought it meant that it had to be a multiple of 4 on the length side, and 3 on the width side, but the instructions tell you to chain 203 to start and then work rows of 201, neither of these numbers is evenly divisible by 4.

Basically if I'm going to reduce the length, the number of stitches I make should be divisible by what? Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Amber
