1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Jareth on: April 30, 2014 05:28:19 PM
it's been 4 years since I said I was going to try to copy Jareth. 
Today I'm getting started.

That's awesome!  Grin once you finish him post a link to your Jareth on this thread please! I wanna see him!
If you have any questions on how mine was done, I'd be happy to answer them, too.
It was nice to see this thread again,  I'd forgotten how good he came out, lol

I forgot to come back and post the miyazaki swap stuff when I finally finished it. I'm pretty proud of this one, but he was a huge pain in the butt to make. Howl was very vain and pushy and it took a lot of work to get everything up to his standards. He actually demanded to be made over again when I was halfway done with his body the first time because he didn't like his shoes and said "his hips were too narrow". He was right about the hips but the shoes were perfectly fine. Vain!

Here is the rest of the swap stuff photos. There was a painted totoro box and a little white totoro and some other bits and bobs.

It was really simple making his junk. I just switched from single crochet (sc) to half double cochet (hdc) right at the crotch and increased 2 hdc in the center 2 stitches (so you're working 4 hdc stitches as the "junk". Or possibly 5 stitches I might have tossed another hdc-inc in on the second round, I'd have to find my notes and it depends on the size of doll you make). I think I worked two rounds like that and then on the next round switched back to sc and decreased twice (or three times, sorry not sure right now) to come back to the original stitch count. The basic idea was to just toss a few extra stitches in there and use half double crochet to get the bulge. He was worked from the toes up, if you are working head down you could do something pretty much the same, but I thought I better mention it.

When you make your Jareth post him! I wanna see. Smiley

I finished this little girl about a week ago. I'd had plans to make a one eyed kitten for a long time but took forever to get around to it. This was free formed (knitted) as I went along so there is no pattern and you can't tell from the way she is posed but the shaping on it is kinda wonky.  Still came out pretty cute and I used a really soft yarn so she is all cuddly and soft.
Her name is Una

She's fairly small about 7" from nose to the tip of her tail and I didn't take any pictures but she has little pink pads embroidered on her feet. If I do another I'm going to remember to put some wire in so its easier to pose. And possibly use a different yarn this stuff was a major pain.

 The eye is 12mm and hand painted.

I'm new to embroidery, but it's quickly turning into a favorite craft. These are both based on sketches I did a year or two ago. They're pretty rough but I thought they came out ok for first attempts.
Happy monster and his little red balloon.

And whatever he is supposed to be.

Thought I'd share since it's all the awesome stuff here on Craftster that got me interested in embroidery to begin with.  Cheesy

What yarn did you use for the lichen? It's quite fitting.
It's Patons Allure in the color Emerald. And it didn't take much to make them either, there was lots left over.
