Made in sc throughout with mostly Red Heart- I am moving in a few months and trying to decrease the stash I've been building since I was 9- I am now 27.  The front is this horrible scratchy wool that seems to be about 20 years old given to me by a friend ("I know you'll be able to do something with it!").  This was a birthday gift for a friend.

No pattern, I started with the black thingy and the hole (technical musician terms) and worked down from there, then up, sometimes in the round and sometimes back and forth to get the shape right.  The fuzz covers most of the resulting inconsistencies.  I worked the sides around it and then made the back as a separate piece and attached with sl st.  The neck is supported with a piece of cardboard, that was just worked in the round until it was as long as the one piece of cardboard I had.  Grin

the black is a pick guard, the hole is a sound hole....

(To The Tune of "The Llama Song")Here's a needle, there's a needle, and some yarn between the needles, cast on, knit, purl, always knitting, knitty, knitty, purl.

That's freakin' awesome!  If only I had done something with my stash yarn rather than giving it away.  Great job!

Did you seriously crochet a guitar.

You rock, my friend!! I love Craftster just because it blows my mind with what unique projects people come up with on the daily. It would make a great gift for a musician!!
