211  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Futurama Nibbler (now with link to pattern!!!) on: January 23, 2008 01:23:51 PM
I've started a blog, and I've finished writing out the Nibbler pattern and posted it over there. Enjoy, and if anyone makes their Nibbler a crochet ham I'd love to see it.Wink http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

Nibbler is my favorite Futurama character. I started working on this over Christmas break, and at last he's done. I did all the crocheting, and my boyfriend stuffed him (my least favorite part of crafting). No pattern, just made him up as I went.

I did the eyeball first and then worked down to the head, all as one piece. Then all the other pieces were crocheted separately and sewn on. The eyes and fangs are made out of felt. (And you know you're too obsessed with details when you find yourself cutting apart wiggly eyes so that the black center on your felt eye will be the exact right size!)

I got it into my head that it would be a good idea to knit the cape, rather than buying fabric. I already had the red wool after all...In the end it took me longer to knit the cape than it did to make Nibbler's entire body. The cape's collar is croceted and then I joined stitches to the base of it, and knit the bottom part.

The white eyeball, yellow booties, and red cape are all made with Bernat Satin that I had left over from other projects. His muzzle and stomach patch are made from Bernat Super Value wool in "natural" and all the black is also Bernat Super Value. Over all, not very expensive to make!

Thanks for looking  Cheesy

That is adorable! Can you post the pattern, or at least, explain how you did the feet. I'm looking at the pictures and I can't quite tell how you did them, but I'd love to make one of these.

Just celebrated Christmas with a couple of our friends the other day and one of my best friends bought me a huge bundle of post eyes in all shapes and sizes to encourage my amigurumi obsession. Here's my first project made with them.

This kitty is based on the Gumball kitten pattern found at:


I used all scrap wool left over from other projects, and stuck a piece of pipe cleaner in the tail so that I could shape it a bit. I changed the ears a bit from the original pattern, but they still aren't as triangular as I'd like.

I've made this snowman, that I posted in completed projects. You could easily change the colours of his clothes/hat if you want something a little different. He's about 8 inches tall. I made him up myself, but I can send you instructions on how it was done, if you're interested.

The wings come from this pattern for a flying pig:


and I've altered them slightly to this (changes only in the last step):


Ch 4. Turn and do 1 sc in each of next 3 ch sps. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc, ch 3. turn. 3 sc on chain, 3 hdc on the three sc. Ch1, turn. 3 sc, ch 4., 3 sc in chain, 3 hdc. Ch1, turn. 4 sc, ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc in ch, 3 hdc, Ch 1, 4 sc, Ch 6, sl st in 2nd Ch from hook, sc 4, hdc 3, ch 3 *Work appox. 8 dc down the edge of wing opposite the feather ends. Sl St into first Ch, or near first Ch. Fasten off.

I got really confused by the wording "opposite the feather end" but what it means is the top of the wing. If you hold the wing so that the spikey bits face downward, then it's along the wobbly top line that you want to put that last row of dc's

The way this pattern repeats, just adding a new Ch each round, etc. it's very easy to make the wings longer/shorter or narrower/wider to suit the size of your amigurumi. For the boy Cthuhlu I didn't do the last row of dc's so his wings are narrower, but they also keep trying to curl in on themselves. It's that last row along the top that makes everything lay flat.

216  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cthulhu Couple on: November 15, 2007 03:06:00 PM
Just in time for Valentine's Day, I've created a pattern for this cute little couple. It's available on my blog at http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

A couple of months ago I made my boyfriend this dark green cthulhu, and he insisted that it needed a girlfriend cthulhu to go with it. My boyfriend did the stuffing and I did the crocheting...

Thanks for looking!

217  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Firefly Browncoat Snowman on: November 15, 2007 02:46:23 PM
I've been making Christmas decorations lately and thought I'd share this Browncoat themed snowman I've made. If you're a fan of the TV Show Firefly or call yourself a Browncoat, you'll understand why I've chosen this colour combo.

Pretty cunning don't ya think?

Hi all,

Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I was pretty happy with how this turned out, and pleased that I got it done a little earlier than expected.

Yes, the pattern is the one mentioned earlier up thread by Nikkidear. I did cut off two rows of snowflakes from that original pattern (one row of six and one row of seven). I'm sure that if made as large as the pattern suggests it would be large enough to cover a queen size bed. (Our bed's a queen and you can see how much it covers in the pic, and that's with two rows less than the pattern wants.)

Someone asked if it was hard to make, and I'd say no...not once you get the basics of making the snowflake down. Use some scrap yarn first, and make a practice snowflake hexagon. It took me two practice hexagons before I actually got a six point snowflake. Turned out I'd been misinterpreting something in the directions.

Also, I changed the border from the orignal. The border on this one is a 1 row of white sc all the way around the perimeter, followed by 1 row of hdc all the way round. I tried the border suggested in the pattern and it just didn't sit right.

Thanks again for all the lovely comments, and if anyone has any more questions about crocheting this afghan I'll happily try to answer them.

Yes, that makes sense. Thanks. I hadn't thought to interpret it that way. Now I should be able to figure out how many stitches I need for the length I want (pulls out the trusty calculator...)

Thanks again! Cheesy

This is the Snowflake Afghan that I just finished making for my boyfriend's mom for Christmas. It's made with Bernat Satin in Admiral and (appropriately enough) Snow coloured worsted weight yarn.
