Hi everyone! I'm new here and I wanted to show you-all my latest afghan.



It is Dobby the House-Elf from Harry Potter.
It is done in tunisian crochet with a size J cabled afghan hook.
I used a graph I made with a small Dobby icon.

It reads "Dobby is used to death threats, sir. Dobby gets them 5 times a day at home." JKR

Aparently I can only post the link for now. Hope it works.


Here's the not-so-pretty back. There were lots and lots of ends to weave in!

I used Caron one pounder yarn in dark purple, Red Heart medium Purple, a cream colored yarn called Fashion Knit (it says off-white), and Spring Green in Red Heart for his eyes.

There's more blatherings about it in my blog, (link is below). I hope you-all like it. I can't wait 'til July for the next movie and, most importantly, the last book!!!!!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

That is really impressive!  Such good work creating the picture.  And I don't think the back looks bad at all  Grin.

The afghan measures 40" X 30". You could use a larger cabled hook size like N, M, or P to make it bigger. I like it small because then you can mount it on a heavy-duty board (by having it stitched on)(they do that at Michael's) so you can hang it on the wall like a portrait.

I used Caron One Pounder in the dark purple and had some left-over. Still, it's better to have more than not enough.
I used three skeins of the Medium Purple in Red Heart 7 ouncers. (With left-over yarn).
The Fashion knit creamy off-white color comes in 3 ounce skeins and I used three. (Again, with left-overs).
His eyes didn't take much yarn at all. I used one skein of the Red Heart Spring Green with lots and lots of left-over yarn.

This took me about two weeks. (I am an obsessive/compulsive type and when I start a project; it nags me until I get it done.) (Or give up on it). Don't get me wrong. Of course I have mysterious U.F.O.s like everyone else, but I try to keep that to a minimum. (Or at least swept under the rug or hidden in my closet of mysterious oddities). But let's not go there, shall we? LOL!
