You're very welcome.  Glad I could help.  ^_^

Might I suggest the ever-popular Mr. Dangly pattern that's been posted on Craftster?  He's definitely a cutie, here's the link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40974.0

If you wanted to knit a bigger project, the other free knitted monkey patterns I've found online are two versions of a british ITV monkey:



Happy knitting!  You have a lucky friend.

pickupsticks, this is so cute, I love how it looks like those shearling or suede jackets that have been popular in recent years.  Thanks so much for sharing the pattern, I couldn't wait to make one right away...so that's what I did this weekend.

Your pattern was very well-written; the instructions were very clear and easy to follow.  Thanks again for taking the time to write the pattern down.  Sending good karma your way.  =)

My old iPod (you know, the first iPod that was released...doesn't have all those bells and whistles iPods have these days, hehe) hasn't looked this fashionable in years.

Here she is in all her glory!

I actually made her a while ago, and posted about it on my blog, (http://warmfuzzies.typepad.com/warmfuzzies/2006/07/wip_frisaturday.html), but since I don't get much traffic there and am quite sure that other people might want to try their hand at making one, I thought I'd come on over here and share the link to the free pattern from Sullivans International. http://www.sullivans.net/90340.cfm?group=toy

Happy knitting, all! =)
25  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Amineko (amigurumi cat) Crochetalong Anyone? on: September 10, 2006 05:36:41 AM
Ambo - Yes, the muzzle closes up at the end.  It's kind of tricky to describe, but the mouth is worked from left to right (or right to left, whatever floats your boat), and not from the top down.  Since it's worked in the round, the front and back of the muzzle are crocheted at the same time, so you're actually making a flat muzzle in the round.  Maybe if you ripped out your R11, flattened the muzzle with your hands (just turn the "tube" in its side and smoosh), and re-crochet R11, the hole will disappear? 

Haha, hope that makes sense.  Looking forward to seeing your finished Amineko.

When this little mousie isn't running around wreaking havoc in the house, he's pretty useful as a little pincushion.  Grin

Bwahahaha, I'll kill two birds with one stone here.

Ambo:  Hope I'm not too late, but here are two pics for size reference.  I didn't have a 20 oz soda can, but I hope this 12 oz can will do!


ax174:  Of course.  It's pretty similar to the original pattern, but here's what I did:

First, make a magic yarn loop
R1: 4sc into the loop, pull the end to tighten, ch1, turn
R2: 2sc in each sc across [8 sts total], ch1, turn
R3: *2sc in first sc, 3sc* twice [10 sts total], ch1, turn
R4: *2sc in first sc, 4sc* twice [12 sts total], ch1, turn

*for the green amineko, I stopped after R4, so instead of ch1 and turning, I fastened off.  I added an extra row for the pink amineko.

R5: *2sc in first sc, 5 sc* twice [14sts total], fasten off

Then I sort of used my fingers to pinch the tops of the ears to make the shape appear even more triangular, if that makes any sense at all.

Hope that helps. ^_^

After seeing all the cute Amineko out there, I guess I'll chime in with mine.

Here's the first-born:

Some visiting friends really liked him a lot and wanted to take him home with them...but I couldn't part with him.  So I spent some time crocheting another amineko to send over their way.

This pattern's so much fun, I love how they're posable...great way to spend an afternoon, posing a crochet cat...

Great suggestion, Fudgegirl!  That really makes a lot of sense, because the details are pretty tricky and time consuming.  And we all hate wasting time.  I guess it all depends on how you want to bite the bullet.  I intended the tutorial to be for people who have never carved stamps out before, and so carving the outside first would give them hands on practice before they went ahead and tackled the more difficult bits.

I have tried cutting a bigger design on the side of the cork, and it works great.  What I recommend doing is first prepping the cork by cutting it in half lengthwise (so you have two half-circles).  Then, cut about 4 mm in from the round side so you have a flat surface (so the cork looks like a funky trapezoid).  Then, position the cork so that the larger base of the "trapezoid" is facing up, and you can go ahead and carve the desired image out of it.  When you're finished, you can stick a push pin onto the shorter base of the trapezoid for a handle for the stamp.  The only problem that you might encounter with doing this is that there are sometimes holes in the middle of the cork...but you'd be able to see this after you make the first cut.

I've also thought about carving all around the cork and making a stamp that you can roll (like a paint roller).  Hehe, if anyone tries that, let me know how it goes!
