1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / GIR hat on: May 02, 2009 06:26:06 PM
I know I'm not the first to make Invader Zim stuff but I couldn't resist making my own take on the GIR hat for my friend.  Like my last hat, the base hat is made on the knifty knitter but all the rest is crochet.

On my husband, the reluctant model
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Updated: Tom Servo and new Chibi Tom Servo w/ PATTERN!! on: April 28, 2009 04:53:04 PM
Since there was so much love for my Servo and a request for a pattern, I decided to tackle a smaller, easier version and this time I wrote up a pattern as I went.  So here he is: Chibi Tom Servo. (Pattern follows)  Make as many as you want, but this pattern is not for commercial use. 

With size comparison (the original was as tall as the bottle or so):

Starting with the Neck:
Magic Ring,
Row 1: sc 6 times in ring (6 sc)
Row 2:  2 sc in each sc around (12)
Row 3: sc in the back loops only (BLO) around (12)
Row 4-8: sc in each sc around
Row 9:  sc in the front loops only (FLO) around (12)
Row 10:  (sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc) around (18)
Row 11: (sc in the next 2 sc, 2 sc in the next sc) around (24)
Row 12: sc in the BLO around (24)
Row 13-20:  sc in each sc around
Attach white
Row 14:  working in the FLO (sc in the next 3 sc, 2 sc in the next sc) around (30)
Row 15: (sc in the next 4 sc, 2 sc in the next sc) around (36)
Row 16: (sc in the next 5 sc, 2 sc in the next sc) around (42)
Row 17: (sc in the next 6 sc, 2 sc in the next sc) around (48)
Row 18: (sc in the next 7 sc, 2 sc in the next sc) around (54)
Thread a pipe cleaner through the body where you want the arms Stuff neck and body here
Attach black
Row 19: sc in the BLO of each sc around (54)
Row 20:  (sc in the next sc, decrease the next 2 sc) around (36)
Row 21: sc in each sc around
Row 22 to finish:  repeat rows 20 & 21
Stuff before the hole gets too small. 
Finishing: When the center is small enough, weave the yarn into the stitches and pull tight, tie off.

Top cap: 
Magic Ring,
Row 1: sc 6 times in ring (6 sc)
Row 2:  2 sc in each sc around (12)
Row 3: (sc in the next sc, 2 sc in the next sc) around (18)
Row 3: sc in the BLO of each sc around (18)
Row 4: sc in each sc around (18)
Fasten off

Cut out and glue on felt where needed.
Wind the Pipe Cleaner into a spring form. Leaving tips to glue the hands to.
Attach head (I used a decoupage ball from Michaels)

This is essentially the same pattern I used for the big Servo, Just add the number of rows and increases to reach the size you want.  You can attach pipe cleaners but you'll need one for each side or a much longer one or attach them to the crocheted shoulders..

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '______________________________________________________________________________')

Well I've been working on this one here and there for a while and now it's finally done. Here's Tom Servo who I made for my brother's late xmas/early bday present. (We don't often get each other anything so this is actually a good present for both, heh). He's a huge MST3K fan so I know he'll love it.

and from the side:

I had some problem figuring out his arms or hands since nothing I crocheted turned out looking right.  I ended up finding some cheap electrical tubing, sculpted the hands from clay and hooked it all together with a pipe cleaner.  The head is the clear decoupage globes you can find at Michaels.  He was a lot more of a challenge than I expected when I started this endeavor.  I putting assembling it off as long as possible but the parents are going to visit him tomorrow so I had to finish it finally.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cthulhu Hat on: April 04, 2009 11:18:23 AM
Well at the bugging of friends I decided to tackle my Cthulhu Hat idea.  Well here's the result.


The base hat itself was made on the Knifty Knifty knitting loom I just bought.  It made the hat go sooo much faster.  However, all the tentacles and the hat edgings were done in crochet.  I folded the edge of the hat up and used the knitting row as the base for the crocheted row. The eyes are sewed on felt.
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pintsize & Winslow on: March 10, 2009 01:29:00 PM
I'm a big fan of the Questionable Content webcomic saw the artist was going to be at a con I was going to so decided to make him his AnthroPC characters of Winslow and Pintsize as a thank you for the comic.  (Unfortunately his listing was a mistake so I still have these)

And here Winslow is trying to get away from Pintsize
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cupcake Cthulhu on: March 03, 2009 03:43:03 PM
The other night I felt like doing a instant gratification project so I decided to tackle the muffin cthulhu I've had in mind since I read this QC comic's punchline http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1335   Here's the result. 

I only needed some of my scrap yarn and had the neon green floating around since I was a kid so I had to use. that.
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Baby Beholder and Momma Beholder Hat on: February 10, 2009 05:57:52 PM
I was trying to figure out a gift to make for my D&D obsessed friend and wasn't having much luck finding something I wanted to make.  So I make my first excursion into making my own pattern and came up with this cute wittle beholder.  I had made enough amigurumis to make the basic ball and adapt it.  This was the result: 

Another image showing all six eyestalks of the more common gauth beholder is here

When I gave it to my friend he started playing with it and placing it on his shoulder.  Watching him inspired me to make him a matching Momma Beholder Hat.  He plans to wear both to GenCon in a wizard costume. Mr. Balloon models below.  The lowest tentacles are made to look like they are pulling your head into its mouth.
