1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Super Mario Brothers (photo corpulent) on: May 12, 2009 12:51:17 AM
Well I've been on hiatus from crocheting for a bit. I've been lacking inspiration, but who can go wrong with a little Mario inspired craft, right? It never gets old.

I made a Mario to go with my Luigi that I posted a while ago, but then I ended up remaking Luigi, so that he's standing and not sitting. He's not quite the same as my last one because I was going off of memory. I wrote down how to make it this time and took step by step pictures, so at some point I'll put together a pattern for both Mario and Luigi. They were both made with a size F hook, Red Heart acrylic yarn, and the only things on them that aren't crochet are the circles on the hats. Mario stands about a foot tall and Luigi is about an inch and a half taller.

This is beyond awesome...The Lobo Paramilitary Christmas Special was one of the first comics I ever owned (and still own!).

Haha you beat me to the punch, I was just about to start making a Dexter. Great job.
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / That was a hoot! Heffer Wolfe from Rocko's Modern Life (with pattern link) on: April 04, 2009 02:13:20 PM
First off, I'd like to apologize for the less than stellar pictures. I can't borrow my roommates camera because he is out of town this week and my cell phone (which takes halfway decent pics) is on the fritz, so I'm forced to use a webcam.

Anyways, I have many fond memories of my childhood. Some of the things that stand out the most, were the cartoons. There was nothing quite like Nicktoons in the early to mid 90s. Rocko's Modern Life was by far one of my favorites. It was so full of crude and jovial humor, much of which went over my head at the time, but it still retains a special place in my heart alongside Ren & Stimpy and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, among other shows. At some point I'll make the rest of the gang, but I give you Heffer Wolfe, loving and loyal friend to Rocko.

Here's a link to the free pattern I made:

He's made with Red Heart, a size D/3 hook, and some pipe cleaners for the legs and arms. I had intended to make a step by step pdf pattern and hock it on etsy, but I was too excited to see him come together so I didn't even take any pictures during the creation process, so now I give it to you free of charge. Surprisingly, he stands on his own.

"Nothing binds a father and a son more closely than the truth behind the decapitated hooker in the rec room."

Another AdultSwim inspired set of amigurumis. It's a cartoon about a family of hillbilly squid, the Cuyler family, that live in Georgia.

Earlie and Rusty Cuyler

Rusty's sweet  sweet mullet

They're about 3.5 inches tall. I used Red Heart and a sized F hook and black acrylic paint (for the pupils and Rusty's acne).

"Take to maraudin' the high seas, pillagin' and pullin' cunning stunts."

damned dyslexic early mornings...you don't want to know what i read this as, but needless to say, it was inappropriate and made me laugh...
btw, great job on the beanie. Very unique!

Oh I know exactly what you read... muahahahaha.  It's called a spoonerism (an error in speech or deliberate play on words in which corresponding consonants, vowels, or morphemes are switched). It was my coy way of being inappropriate.

Thanks all me hearties, yo ho!


Did you make the beard detachable, so you could still wear the beanie when the weather is 'cold-enough-for-a-beanie-but-already-too-warm-for-something-beardy'?


I probably should have, but no I didn't. There's always next winter to look forward to wearing it.

If you're like me, often times you think to yourself, "Self... if I be a pirate, ye would've already be walkin' the plank at least 6 times today, ya scurvy dog! Ye should be abandonin' this life of work and taxes. Take to maraudin' the high seas, pillagin' and pullin' cunning stunts. Aye, ye won'ts be regrettin' it."

Unfortunately, I live too far from the warm waters of the Caribbean to abandon my humble, yet respectable life as a computer programmer... and it's far too cold here in Boston to live the life of a ne'er-do-well swashbuckler. Plus it would take ages for me to grow a respectable pirate beard. So, I came up with a compromise: the Pirate Bearded Beanie!  
This is my first attempt at something that isn't an amigurumi. I didn't use a pattern, just kind of made it up as I went along.

Loaded to the Gunwales

I used a size I (9) hook, arrrrrr!

Dirty Pirate Hooker

Shiver me timbers!

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

Haha, this is awesome. It kind of reminds me of Slimer from Ghostbusters.
