Hi!

This is the first crochet project of any significance I have ever done Grin.

He's from the super book Creepy Cute Crochet http://www.amazon.com/dp/1594742324?tag=needle-20&camp=14573&creative=327641&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=1594742324&adid=0QA5AV3DNKWWGD2AJ6YB&

I made him for my botfriend because we watched Nosferatu at a festival we went to last year. The only ammendment I made is to add the two tiny drops of blood from the right fang!

The buttons were made from polymer clay as the book advises, glued on with PVA, and are so effective, I will not make eyes from anything else now!

He is so cute! You did a great job. I got that book for Xmas and I am having such a hard time with all of it. I tried the basic head 3 times and just want to scream. Even with needlenoodles tuts I am still stuck.  kudos for finishing your cute little vamp!

Thanks Le Coiffeur!

Sorry to hear that. What was the problem? Maybe I can help with the beginner's viewpoint! I did keep losing count of stitches, so I found that using a safety pin to mark the start each time I began a round, and at least making sure I fitted in the right number of stitches for each round, really helped.

he looks lovely, i haven't done him yet, i'm sure i will at some point though

as for problems getting things to look right it took me a couple of goes to begin with, but i worked out what my main problem was, my tension was varying, so i took the next one slower and more carefull and he came out beautifull

Very cute Nosferatu! I love Creepy Crochet even though I have only made the Ninja so far and three kitties based on the basic head and body patterns.

Congrats on your first "significant" crochet project - I love it!   Cheesy  He's definitely got personality... kinda reminds me of the Harry Potter puppet pals.  And trust me - that's a good thing!  Wink

I think you did a good job.  I have the book too, but have only made the monkey.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
