Title: Captain Jack Amigurumi
Post by: bixby2 on July 02, 2006 12:13:54 PM
This doll has been banging around my head for a few months and I finaly got to make him this week



Captain Jack is off on another adventure! This 12" doll is ready to commandeer one of these ships, pick up a crew in Tortuga, raid, pillage, plunder and otherwise pilfer his weasely black guts out. So if you have the courage and fortitude to follow orders and stay true in the face of danger and almost certain death then you have just one question to ask yourself. Can you sail under the command of a pirate, or can you not?

 ;D That is so cool! Good job.

That hair had to have taken some patience to make/attach...How'd you do it?

Post by: bixby2 on July 02, 2006 01:55:31 PM
THanks guys :)  I can't wait for the movie!  I am going to the midnight premere.

Kelly Bear:  It is a combination of yarn and two different colors of embroidery floss.  I doubled the length, put a knot in the center big enough to keep it from sliding out and then wefted it into each hole left by the crochet.  It took several hours to do, but it looks great.

You know now that you've made him, you HAVE to take the Captain to the premiere, right?

The praise (even as repetitive as it is) never grows old. This is absolutely marvelous.

I'd like to mention I was poking about your etsy shop and have fallen in love with your turtle of enormous girth. I am a Tower Junkie, along with my one friend and I know that she would absolutely adore that little dude.

Oh my god, this is so great. I have a friend who would die for this. I'm already making her two pirate-related presents though for her wedding... Bummer.  If I make her more all my friends will be too jealous. You know.. friends always want your crochet stuff.

I've never tried to knit one, but when has that kept me from commenting? ;) I do know that crocheted fabrics tend to be stiffer and thus would hold their shape better than knitted ones, so without starching it might be harder to get knitted pieces to stay where you want them to be. But I'd love to hear from the experts.

Man, cool stuff like this really makes me wish I could crochet!  It's Captain Jack, savvy?  ;)  That movie was BEYOND incredible! 

Now if only the official toys looked that good (I didn't get any action figures because the faces just looked awful on them). 

Keep crocheting, you're certainly talented!!

that captain jack's one hell of a sparrow... ;)
NICE NICE crotch-et-ing!!
may i suggest, however, adding a little more grit to the cuddly caper.... he needs to roll around in the dirt or something, to get the feel of CAPTAIN jack sparrow  ;D

Amigurumi is actually what Jack is... :)  In Japanese, amigurumi means "a knitted or crocheted doll."

Post by: bixby2 on August 22, 2006 03:41:23 PM
I made the pattern up on my own.  I haven't made one recently, But I was thinking of making another in the next week or so.  He will be in the next issue of Interweave Crochet both the magazine and their website.  It will be available in the middle to end of September!

No need to apologise, I had to as too  ;)  I am told it is at the big craft stores like Joanns and Michaels.  Also the big bookstores like Borders and Barnes and Nobel.  There will be a small feature about the doll in the magazine, but the pattern is going to be available on their website  http://www.interweavecrochet.com/


Title: Re: Captain Jack Amigurumi
Post by: bixby2 on August 29, 2006 05:09:42 PM
It will be available September 12th at this link.  His name was changed to Sam, but he is still the same doll.  Have fun everybody  :D

christinacoghill , where did you get the pattern? I have been watching the interweave site ever since it appeared to get this pattern , and I even emailed them and still no replies or updates on their page. ???I sooooo want to make him for my hubby.

It looks like they updated the link if you click on "more" on the homepage, but not if you click on the picture.  Here is the real link

And I will let them know they still have the link wrong on that other part

Congratulations, bixby! I just saw Jack in Interweave at Michael's. I almost thought they had stolen your idea, since the name was different. Wish they hadn't had to change the name, but I understand the reasons for it.

Interweave is a great magazine. I hope this brings a little cash your way, too. Go, bixby!

Woo hoo! You need to send one of these to Johnny Depp. I bet he'd love it, especially since he has a little son and daughter he could give it to.

hey! I want to make mine life-size. Then he can ride in the passenger seat in my car and freak out people on the toll road.

Off to by the pattern--way to go!

I love his v-shaped mouth.  He looks very devious!

Thanks everybody!!   :D  Actually, he has no mouth.  That V is his goatee, but it certainly makes him look devious ;)

oh my goodness. johnny depp is such a huge fan of playing the character, i bet if you somehow made one/gave it to him, he'd be your friend for life.

I LOVE this!! I would really like to make it myself, but I'm just a beginner. Any thoughts on the skill level necessary to make such an awesome doll? Thanks. ;D

When I wrote the pattern, I said it was Advanced.  But there is a group of ladys working on it in a crochet along at this link https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120492.0
You could ask them if they agree with that level of experience.  I have a feeling I would have a biased oppinion  ;)

I've been crocheting for a while but am still working on 'beginner' type projects.  I can follow simple patterns, etc.  This pattern really hasn't been difficult to work on at all. I've just been lazy so am only half way finished with it but I've found the instructions to be very easy to follow, especially if you have worked on amigurumi's in the past. Since the instructions are clear, it really does make it nice and simple to work on.  There's a stitch count after every row, so you'll know you're on the right track. i think it'll be worth it in the end! plus, it will give you good practice working on such a creative project.
