11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / PinkCrochet Kitty Hat *Update now with tutorial* on: November 11, 2007 04:25:26 PM

Please don't mind the obvious mirror picture. The hubby wasn't around to help with taking the pictures. Normally I don't look so spastic... Anyways with all of the crafting I'm doing for holiday presents, I thought I needed a quick little something for me.

This hat is sooo easy to do. I'll see if I can wing a tutorial (Beware i've never written a tutorial before!

*This tutorial is winged with an H hook*

chain 41
double crochet all the way across and chain one
do not turn around, instead continue across the back of the chain (now working in the round)
continue double crocheting down about 7 rows
On the 8th row, double crochet 4 then work the popcorn stitch (see the popcorn stitch here: http://www.nexstitch.com/v_popcorn_stitch.html) then double crochet two and then another popcorn stitch. do this across the front until there are four left on the front and then double crochet the rest of the way across the front and double crochet all across the back
Do that for 4 rows
Then double crochet all the way around the last row. and hide your string.

Next try on the hat. You'll see the ears there already. If you want to secure the ear spot find the bottom of the ears and take a piece of matching yarn and just secure the front and back together and hide the ends. Thats not really needed though because when you put it on the ears are usually perfect.

14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swap? I'm just not sure.. on: October 25, 2007 12:26:02 PM
I 'saved'  at least a dozen computer keyboards from the trash at work, because I knew some of the amazing things people around Craftster could do with keys. I'd love to trade them for other crafty materials like yarn, is that a swap? I see the big organized swaps with different themes but I didn't see anything for crafty materials. How does that work exactly, or is Craftster not the spot for such trades?

Thanks for letting me know!!

16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Punky Monkey! (picture massive) on: November 12, 2006 05:57:54 PM
This is the very first sock monkey I have ever made. Actually its the first time I've really used my sewing machine in ages, I'm more of a crochet girl than sewing, but when I saw a few sock monkeys recently I knew it was time to try my hand!! (May the Gods Bless whoever made that zombie sock moneky!!!)Thanks to a lovely donation to the sock monkey cause (thanks Diviny!!!) I aquired a pair of rainbow striped toe socks. From those socks was born PUNKY MONKEY the mohawk wearing rainbow striped monkey of love!

I accidently sewed the right sides together, so he's a little furry in some places, but I think it adds to the charm. Also the socks that were donated didn't have a heel, so I had to improvise. His ears are two of the toes from the other sock.  That is my hubby helping Punky Monkey model in some of the pictures. I had a blast making him, I'm thinking that he may need a few friends!
