3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Monkey Boy on: December 17, 2010 08:00:33 AM

He's only 5 inches tall when he is sitting so he should be perfect for my 6 month old nephew.
He is adapted from this free pattern.

edit: the tree ornament is for me Smiley
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 2 sweet purses for 2 sweet girls on: November 08, 2010 11:29:12 AM

I made these two sweet bags for my 2 little nieces who are 2 and 3 years old.
The pattern calls for worsted yarn but I used DK to make them smaller (they are only 6 inches across).
Here is the link to the great free pattern:
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crocheted elephant pacifier clip made from a knit pattern on: September 04, 2010 12:15:26 PM
I always thought that the elephant pacifier from Itty-bitty Nursery by Susan Anderson was so cute.
Problem is I am a beginner knitter and I'm much more comfortable with crochet.
So I wondered if it was possible to use the pattern as a guide and end up with a decent crocheted version.

This is what I made:

and here is the link to the knitted version:
I'm actually quite happy how it turned out.

I used sc instead of knit stitches which resulted in it coming out the same size.
When it said to cast on 9 stitches I made 9 sc into a magic ring.
I then simply looked at each row's stitch count and made the number of increases or decreases necessary to get that count.
I spread the incr/decr evenly through that row.
Pretty straight forward.
The reason it worked was that I chose a pattern with simple shapes.

I originally tried to work through the actual instructions in each row but that didn't work out at all
since increases in knitting and crochet don't work the same.

I'm so happy and  I already have another knitting pattern lined up.  Cheesy
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / a new cover for an old beatup stool on: September 03, 2010 07:06:04 PM

I found a stool on the curb which was a bit battered but still in good condition.
I decided to make a cover for it so I crocheted a new top for it.
Here is a closer look from the top.
It's a bit stretched from my cat's claws and my husbands feet :0)

Here is a pic showing the old stool peeking out.

The centre part is from this free pattern
The rest is rows of double crochet.
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Hobbes on: December 13, 2009 03:37:41 PM
My 21 year old son requested Hobbes for Christmas.
This is what I came up with.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Low fat snacks for kids on: October 23, 2009 11:20:16 AM
I'm making a batch of different foods to give to 2 of my  little nieces for Christmas.
These came from the great book Tasty Crochet but there are also a lot of free patterns online.
I love how these came out  Smiley

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Eve (with free pattern link) on: June 15, 2009 10:03:24 AM
I wanted to see if I could make up a pattern for Eve so this is the result.

I printed out an image of her and realized
that her body was egg-shaped and her head was a sphere.
I thought " I know how to make those shapes", I'm pretty happy with her!
You can find my free pattern here
