In homage to the movie "Oldboy", I made a hammer. The first picture is the lovely, Trevor doing his best Oh Dae Su impression. The second picture is of the hammer in it's new home of my friend's two year old. If there is any interest, I can put the pattern up.

Happy Crafting!  Grin





I crocheted this pattern in the round using a stitch marker at the end of my rounds. I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn and an H hook. I also use standard American crochet abbreviations, but if you have any questions, just pm me.

Hammer

Business End (Make 1) If you want to make a gavel, you could make 2 business ends and leave off the last two rows.


Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc (12)
Rnd 3: 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, around (18)
Rnd 4: 1 sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, around (24)
Rnd 5: In BLO, sc in each sc (24)
Rnd 6-8: sc in each sc (24)
Rnd 9: sc in next 2 sc, sc dec, around (18)
Stuff a bit (if adding a squeaker in the nose, do it now)
Rnd 10: sc in next sc, sc dec around (12)
Stuff a bit more
Rnd 11: sc in each sc (12)
Rnd 12: 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, around (18)
Rnd 13: 1 sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, around (24)
Rnd 14: In BLO, sc in each sc (24)
Rnd 15-22: sc in each sc (24)
Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing the business end to the nail remover end.

I used 15mm safety eyes and I put them in at this point.

Nail Remover End (Make 2)

*Note: When you begin Round 2, the piece will try to flip inside out. Dont worry about it right away, just flip it right side out at the end of the row. Also, stuff the pieces as you go along. Once you have the entire piece done, you can just bend this end down and it should stay curved.

Rnd 1: 3 sc in magic ring (3)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc (6)
Rnd 3: sc in each sc (6)
Rnd 4: 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, around (9)
Rnd 5-15: sc in each sc (9)
Fasten off, leave a long tail for tying together in Round 2 of the next step.

*Note: Instructions get a bit dodgy here, so if you have any questions, please pm me.

Rnd 1: With a long tail, sl st the two pieces together. Sc around the top of one piece until you get back to the middle of the two pieces, then sc around the top of the other piece. Put a stitch marker at the end and count your stitches. I had 16 stitches one time then 18 the other. If you have less than 18 stitches, increase in the next row however many stitches you need to get to 18 stitches
Rnd 2: sc in each sc or increase to get to 18 (18). Tie loose ends together. It stabilizes the piece somehow.
Rnd 3-4: sc in each sc (18)
Rnd 5: 1 sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, around (24)
Rnd 6-9: sc in each sc (24)
Fasten off, leave a long tail to sew your ends in.

Stuff and sew the business end to the nail remover end. When sewn, stuff until you can stuff no more and sew all the way closed. I used a mattress stitch (or thats what my grandma called it) to sew mine closed versus a whip stitch.
Handle (Make 1)
*Stuff as you go along

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc (12)
Rnd 3-28: sc in each sc (12)
Rnd 29: 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc (18)
Rnd 30: sc in each sc (18)
Fasten off, leave long tail to attach to hammer head.

Menace all your friends with your hammers cuteness!!! Cheesy

I could totally use a crocheted hammer...much less damaging than the real thing, and probably just as satisfying to use when angry! What a great project!  ROCKS!  Grin

Ha ha - that's cool!  I haven't seen the movie but I'm sure there'd be lots of little boys who would love one of them.  And I know a 25 year old who would too!  He'd also like a toilet plunger but that's another story...

STOP. Hammertime.

And that makes me laugh even more!
