141  Letter Quest Grimm + v2.0 in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: October 27, 2015 02:45:05 PM
I am obsessed with word games and one of my favorites is "Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey".
In the game, you take the role of Grimm, an adorable little grim reaper who is on a journey to find a pizza place and you fight ghosts along the way by spelling out words. Since I think that he's just the most adorable little grim reaper ever, I decided I just had to have one of my own so I set about making up a pattern for him. He's made of quite a few pieces and was a LOT of work, but he was worth it.
I'm currently working on another one, tweaking the pattern as I go to make him more proportional. If it turns out right, I'll try to clean up my notes and share it. My mom wants this one because she also plays the game and thinks he's adorable Smiley


The little string at the back of his hood is to attach a skull bead. Grimm has a skull on his hood but I can't find my skull beads so the string is just there for now.

Here's some photos to show the progress before I sewed him together (I wish I had taken more):

Here's my Halloween costume:


It's simple but my boyfriend and I are taking his friend to San Antonio for a Magic: The Gathering Regional PTQ. While he's gaming, my boyfriend and I are going to be having a little fun around town, possibly visiting a couple craft shops along the way Grin
It has its own thread here with a pattern for the horns and a basic guide for the tail.

Project Name: Devilishly simple costume
Project Link: Here
For Halloween this year, I went with something super simple for two reasons: 1) my boyfriend said we don't get trick-or-treaters in this area because there aren't a lot of kids here and 2) we're going to San Antonio to take his friend to a Magic: The Gathering Regional PTQ. (While his friend is playing, we're going to have fun around town.)
I made the patterns myself. The tail is simply a single row of double crochet sewn around a piece of wire with two triangles sewn on the tip. I wrote down the pattern for the horns, in case I need to make more for anything later (the pattern is in the link).
I have to pick up a headband for the horns Friday when we go shopping Smiley

145  Devilishly simple costume (with horns pattern) in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: September 30, 2015 01:14:53 PM
For Halloween this year, I went with something super simple for two reasons: 1) my boyfriend said we don't get trick-or-treaters in this area because there aren't a lot of kids here and 2) we're going to San Antonio to take his friend to a Magic: The Gathering Regional PTQ. (While his friend is playing, we're going to have fun around town.)



I made the patterns for these myself. The tail is simply a single row of double crochet sewn around a piece of wire with two triangles sewn together on the tip. I didn't count the stitches for the base, but the tip of the tail was made by chaining 10 then decreasing each row until only 1 stitch remained.

For the horns (and tail) I used an H hook but you can use whatever sort of hook you need for whatever yarn you're using. The yarn I used is Caron Pound of Love in Claret.

Pattern:

ch 2
4 sc in second st from hook, join (4 sts)
ch 1, 2 sc in ea st around, join (8 sts)
ch 1, 2 sc in ea st around, join (16 sts)
ch 1, sc, 2 sc in next st; repeat around, join (24 sts)
sc around in front loops (closer to you; 24 sts)
ch 1, sc in next 2 sts, sk 1 st; repeat around, join (16 sts)
sc around (16 sts)
sc around (16 sts)
ch 1, sc in next 3 sts, sk 1 st; repeat around, join (12 sts)
stuff firmly
ch 1, sc in next 2 sts, sk 1 st; repeat around, join (8 sts)
ch 1, sc in next 1 st, sk 1 st; repeat around, join (4 sts)
f/o, weave in ends
After weaving in the ends, squish the stuffing around to shape them however you like. I gave mine a slight curve. If you leave them as they are, they'll look more like Hershey's Kisses. Which would actually make really cute Christmas or Valentine's decorations, come to think of it! Cheesy

Repeat for your second horn then attach them to a headband or hair clips and have fun raising a little hell Grin

147  Fun hats and cute gloves for friends in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: September 23, 2015 12:25:21 PM
One of my friends is dressing her seven year old daughter and three year old son up as Raggedy Ann and Andy for Halloween and asked me to make wig hats to go with their costumes.
I felt up to the challenge so I agreed and made these using a basic beanie pattern but substituted the loop stitch for single crochet. I had to adjust the rows a bit and recommend that if you want to make a loop stitch hat, use this pattern for a CPK inspired hat from Repeat Crafter Me. It will save you a headache!

Made with Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry.

Another friend asked if I could make fingerless gloves for her and her little sister. Since I'd already had plans to do just that, I made these up using this quick and easy pattern from Ravelry. I added the buttons to the backs of the pink gloves to give them visual interest and to appeal to an eight year old's sense of style. I'll be adding skull and crossbones crochet appliques to the purple gloves as soon as I finish making the appliques.

The purple ones are Caron One Pound of Yarn in Deep Purple and the pink ones are Red Heart Super Saver in Shocking Pink.

Naanjte, loop stitch isn't hard at all. A little more work than single crochet but lots of fun to play with Cheesy My boyfriend wants a loop stitched rug for our bath mat now. Smiley
Your little funny bunny is cute Cheesy

I found a fun, fast and EASY pattern for fingerless gloves on Ravelry! This pattern comes in men's, women's, kid's, and toddler's sizes.
I made these two pairs for a friend and her younger sister. I added buttons for visual interest and will be adding crocheted skull and cross bone appliques to the others as soon as I've finished making them Smiley

I'm so happy that the camera picked up the actual colors of the yarns so well! The yarns used are Caron One Pound of Yarn in Deep Purple and Red Heart Super Saver in Shocking Pink.

EdelC, I'm loving your paintings but especially the Halloween one! I'm especially impressed that it's in oils because, as bunny said, they're a pain to work with Tongue

Project Name: Raggedy Ann and Andy hats
One of my friends asked me to make these hats for her kids as a part of their Halloween costumes. I had the Andy hat (smaller) made at the end of August and 1/3 of the Ann hat but I was sleeping more than crafting so they just sat on the shelf in my craft room, waiting for me.
They're made from a basic beanie pattern but are worked in the loop stitch instead of single crochet. It's not perfectly visible here, but the Raggedy Ann hat has her signature yarn "bow" on the top.
In hindsight, it probably would have been quicker and easier if I had used this Cabbage Patch Doll inspired hat pattern from Repeat Crafter Me, which I may do in the future because I have a friend who is on the fence about a CPK costume for her munchkin.

I finished these up a few days ago but never got around to posting them Tongue
It's Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy hats for a friend's kids. The bigger one with the yarn "bow" is Raggedy Ann.

It's just a basic beanie worked in the loop stitch.
