She's so cute!!!
Would you mind telling me how you change colors? Like when you pick it up (when you pull up a loop, or yarn over, etc) Your color changes on the socks look particularly good and I've been having trouble with that!!
Of course I wouldn't mind sharing! It took me FOREVER to learn how to change colors without either making a mess or having ten million ends to weave in.
But it's really not that bad of a process.
Yay, another impromptu tute! LOL
Ok, let's say you're just finishing up a pink row and want to change to gray. Don't finish the last pink stitch. So, if you're doing a single crochet, insert the hook, pull up a loop so that you have two loops on the hook and stop there.
Here's what the back is going to look like. The gray is from a previous row, but if you're just adding it in for the first time, this process still works.
What you're going to do is move the pink yarn out of the way completely, and pick up the gray yarn with the hook and pull it through the two pink loops on the hook effectively completing the stitch.
Then it will look like this: a gray loop coming out of a pink stitch
Just leave the pink yarn out of the way while you crochet with the gray. When you are ready to change colors back to pink, repeat the process. If the two colors get twisted around each other, just move one of them around the whole hook untill they aren't twisted anymore - I hope that makes sense!
Ok, again, if there are any questions, you can PM me or post here, and I will try my best to answer them!
I need her! Did you use a pattern?
Nope, I didn't use a pattern - just amigurumi style increasing by 6's (I think) on the head and body. I used an H-hook (but I crochet pretty tight) and 12mm safety eyes. And I literally made up the clothes as I went along. Wish I did have a pattern because it would be a lot easier for me to make another one for myself!
