11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: mini INDIANAPOLIS COLTS helmet for my little superfan on: August 30, 2010 10:39:50 AM
I finally finished writing a pattern.  ugh.... I have never wrote a pattern before so I hope you get my what i'm saying.

I use a size 7 needle and size 10 thread 
I have also used liquid starch and 2 vending machine capsules (like the kind the little plastic football helmets come in)

stitches used:  Sc-  single crochet,  Dc-  double crochet,  Hdc-  half double crochet,  Tc-  triple crochet
Hdcdec-  half double crochet  decrease

R1/  ch 2,  6 sc in second chain from hook,  join.

R2/  ch 2,  hdc in same stitch ( 2 hdc around),  join.

R3/  ch 2,  2 hdc in next, (hdc in next, 2 hdc in next, around) join.

R4/  ch 2, hdc next, 2 hdc in next, ( hdc in next 2, 2 hdc in next, around),  join.

R5/  ch 2, hdc next 2, 2 hdc in next, ( hdc in next 3, 2 hdc in next, around), join.

R6/  ch 2,  hdc in next 3, 2 hdc in next, ( hdc in next 4, 2 hdc in next, around), join.

R7-9/  ch 2, hdc around, turn.

R10-11/  ch 2, hdc in next 30, turn.

R12/  ch 2, skip 1, hdc in next, hdc across to last two, hdcdec,  turn.

R13/  ch 2, hdc across, turn.

R14/  ch 2,  skip 1 hdc in next,hdc across to last two, hdcdec, turn.

R15/  ch 2, hdc across, turn.

R16/  ch 4,  TC next 2,  Dc next 3,  Hdc next 3,  Sc next 9,  Hdc in 3,  Dc in 3,  Tc last 3, turn.

R17/  ch 1, sc evenly spaces all the way around front side of helmet and down to the other side and join with a slip stitch in first sc.

fasten off and weave in ends.


R1/  ch 39,  sc in second ch from hook and across, turn.

R2/  ch 16, skip 16, Dc in next,  ch4, skip 4, dc in next,  ch 16 slip stitch in last, turn.

R3/  ch 1 sc across, slip stitch in last fasten off and weave in ends.

(if you just want the two-bar then omit the dc's and ch 39 again and slip stitch in last stitch)

Dip the unformed helmet and mouth piece in liquid starch.  Squeeze out excess.  Stretch helmet over vending machine capsule and use clothespins to hold in place until dry.
Place mouth piece at bottom edge of second capsule and use clothespins to hold in place.

I have included a couple of pics to help you understand what I mean

After helmet and mouthpiece are dry, I use fabric glue to attach mouthpiece to helmet.  Use clothespins to hold on until dry.

If you want the stripe down the back,  chain a length of chain a little smaller than back of helmet and sc across.  Use fabric glue to attach stripe.  Any other designs I just free form, I  chain a length of chain i need and glue it to helmet in the shape i want.

You did a  really good job.  Where do you find patterns for poppets? Would love to try one myself.

Great job.  I love the little hula dancer.  I was wondering what everyone uses for the eyes on the amis.

The only idea I keep getting is to maybe cover some kind of box with them.  Or even a  waste basket then give them some kind of clear coat to make it cleanable.  They would also be cool as a desk top with a glass on top.  At least that way you wouldn't have to alter them.

There was a lady on here that crocheted little people with cork faces.  I think she did them for a Christmas  bazaar.

You could maybe make some kind of bird houses from them.  Maybe?

You could glue them to a large canvas in like  swirls or something.  I think they would make a great polka dotted piece of art.
