Cool idea, I was thinking of making a DS cozy, maybe I'll just make one of these instead.  I love the stickers on your DS, too  Grin

thank you!  the background spots actually came with my nintendogs game, but i felt silly with just that sticker so i tried to cover it up with the piggies and then... i went a little nuts ^_^;;

How cute!  I love how your lined yours with the colour of the traditional taiyaki filling, red bean paste.
i'm glad you like my version!  like i said, that was the closest color i had to anko/red bean.  i could eat that stuff all day.

I think the x with the dash under it is single crochet thru the back loop or something like that. 

Thanks christina! Even if it's "something like that," at least now I won't be lying awake tonight trying to figure it out...since I haven't located my symbol crochet book that's written in English...
you're right about the stitches, and the x with a dash *is* for stitching in the back loop (like christinacoghill said).  one of my simpler amigurumi books in japanese has really nice explanations for the japanese stitch symbols


wow! so cute. I'm guessing its a type of fish?
it's actually a traditional japanese sweet, it's just in the shape of a fish ^_^  ax174 posted a link to the wiki article on it here

Thanks for confirming this! And, any translation help would be great! I have a translation guide for Japanese patterns that I found around here somewhere, but it is for sewing pretty much. So, a bit more info on the crochet terms would be great! Thanks a bunch!

I ordered this book, plus a couple of others, when I first saw this post.

Sweet!  You won't regret it.  The book also includes the patterns for the hamburger, pear and apple in this thread (here's another burger made by craftster Cocoa Kitten).

This purse is adorable. From the posts here in the thread it seems that it's made by crochet. Can you please let me know if it's knit or crochet? And also, does this book have some crochet patterns in it as well as knit?

I'm not a great knitter but I can crochet. I'd love to make this little bag!

I believe it is crochet (even though the book is called Knit Room, I think everything in it is crochet from what I can decipher). The book is written in Japanese, but uses symbols to show how to make it.
