1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / 2 Amigurumi Elephants on: June 16, 2008 12:07:51 PM

I named this one Loricus

And this one is Berry

I started this pattern like a year ago and didn't find the motivation to finish it until I saw that the most recent Softie Awards had an elephant category. I'm a little late posting this to Craftster! hehe

Berry is going to be on display at one of the Crammed Organisms (http://www.crammedorganisms.com) shows. I like Loricus too much to let go of her though Smiley

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Easiest way to make a crochet chart? on: January 05, 2008 12:53:31 PM
Is there any program or something that can be used to make crochet charts (the type you see in japanese patterns)? When I draw them out by hand they look horrible.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My Nut Sacks on: December 05, 2007 09:33:02 PM
I put these up on Flickr (sorry if you've already seen em) a few days ago but hadn't had a chance to show them off here yet. I made several sets of nut sacks hehe!

Each nut is a little bigger than the size of an egg.

I had a bunch of them sitting around on Thanksgiving and my Grandma thought they were adorable! I didn't have the heart to explain the concept to her lol!  Wink
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sparkley Christmas Ornament - Free Pattern Link on: December 03, 2007 03:59:53 PM
I designed this pattern using Patons Brilliant yarn, it's sparkley!  Cheesy  I made the top out of metallic embroidery floss and a really tiny hook. That took tons of patience but I think it was worth it. It looked really plain so I glued on some Swarovski crystal rhinestones in a zig zag pattern around the top.

I put the pattern in a PDF, if anyone wants to make one, you can download the pattern here: http://www.gleefulthings.com/patterns/ornament.html. You can make it with any yarn really, you just need to adjust your hook size accordingly so that your stitches are tight.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Free People Star Stitch Hat? on: November 28, 2007 01:55:10 PM
I saw this hat in the new Free People catalog and I was gonna make one but can't figure out what kinda stitch this is. It's not like any star stitch I can find. I found this one on about.com: http://crochet.about.com/library/blstar_stitch.htm and I have a book with a completely different star stitch in it. It's basically (dc, ch 1) rep 3 times all in 1 stitch = one star stitch. But I tried both of those and neither look anything like this hat. Does anyone know what it might be?  Sad

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Adult Costume: Snail on: November 03, 2007 12:35:11 AM
I already posted this on the Halloween board (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205668.0) so I'll just put the pictures up here.

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My Snail Costume! on: November 02, 2007 05:05:01 PM
I would have posted this sooner but it was a totally last minute thing and the only pictures I got were taken on Halloween. I didn't make the dress. I just made the eyes and shell. The shell was super simple, just a long tube filled with stuffing (it took three 20oz bags!) and rolled up. I used ric rac for straps and that ended up being a horrible idea because the front of my shoulders are bruised from it now. The eyes are made from felt. I bought one of those headbands with springs with pom poms on the end, ripped off the pom poms and just made my eyes over the springs.

I love how it turned out! I think this is the first time I've made a costume that I was totally happy with! Smiley I wanted to wear some cute yellow heels but I spent the night walking around Hollywood so that would have been a horrible idea.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Squirrels dressed for Halloween! on: October 15, 2007 02:14:18 PM
I made some of my Potato (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=152146.0) squirrels and dressed them for Halloween!

Vampire! He has fangs but they hardly showed in any of my pictures Sad



9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Three Moldy Cupcakes on: September 10, 2007 10:34:47 AM
I posted one of these before but I just made more of them in different "flavors" lol!

"Butter Crust"

"That's not mint"

"Fresh Mold" I couldn't think of a better name for that one...

The pattern is free on my website if you'd like to make one of your own Smiley http://www.gleefulthings.com/patterns/moldycupcake.html
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Shell stitch increasing in rounds on: June 23, 2007 11:18:33 AM
I found a pattern for a hat made with a shell stitch (http://www.anniesattic.com/crochet/content.html?content_id=15), problem is, it's for a kid's size so I'm trying to make it bigger to fit me. The pattern has you do 6 shell stitches and chain one in between them. In the next row, you do a shell in each of the shells and in the ch 1 spaces (in this row you don't ch 1 between shells). From there it has you work even but I need to keep increasing.

I'm not sure how to keep increasing because if I do the same thing as a first row (make ch 1 spaces to add more shells) you end up doubling the number of shells and it gets all wavy/lumpy.

Can anyone help? Or if anyone has a link to a pattern for a similar hat that would probably help me too Smiley
