Belt's and Hair:
I'm not great at explaining how to apply hair, so your better off without me. But I'm sure if you run Amigurumi hair tutorial through Google you'll find something. The belts are simple enough. Simply make a ch that fits around the waist and sc across. Same for the chest (?) belt. Haha, whatever. Have fun everybody.

I'd love to hear what you think of the pattern.

August-September Pattern Requests

Well everyone, I know I've been gone a while but I'm happy to be back. My summer was a busy and exciting one, including a trip to the amazing and wonderful city of Chicago. I probably should have mentioned this, but usually during the summer I take a break from my crochet to make sure that I never get sick of my craft. But now school is starting and so our my ideas. I expect some great things from my brain this year. And I think I might explore the realm of hats, gloves and scarves a little more this winter. Something I little more inventive then amigurumi but not as hard as designing coats, shirts etc.. But not to worry, I still expect to find some great characters hidden in my skiens of yarn.

Anyway, I'd like to see what you think. It's time for pattern requests. You know how this works, so I won't bother giving you the rules. I know some of you out there are wanting clothes for the basic body pattern I made. Here is where you can ask for them. Please ask for the specific costume of a character not simply clothing idems. Picture links are helpful and I'll be taking comments until Septembet 6th.

Gone, But Will Return Soon

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you all know that, sadly, part 2 of June pattern requests has been cancelled. My brother went into surgery today (gladly nothing to serious) and I'm not able to finish the pattern, at least for right now. I hope to come back to it sometime. I want to apologize to everyone, and say that, hopefully, I'll be back soon with more new patterns. Anyway, here's a little humor to brighten your day :)

Basic Amigurumi Body

So, this month I had the request to do Draco Malfoy. But for a long time I haven't really liked the limbless blobs that I've been making. So, I decided to make a new basic body pattern. Also with this pattern you can make the rest of the Harry Potter charactors along with any other charactor you might come up with. (sorry, by the way, for the bad picture quality)

Notions: G hook
                Skin colored yarn
                Tapestry Needle
                Stitch Marker


  Legs(make two)- Ch 2, sc 8 in second ch from hook.
Rnd 1: inc around
Rnds 2-4: sc around
Rnd 5: Sc 2, dec. around 
Rnds 6-7: sc around
Rnd 8: sc 2, dec. around
Rnds 9-16: sc around, FO

Now about joining the legs, what you need to do is sl st through both the legs twice and then continue around the perimeter of the legs.

Rnds 17-19: sc around
Rnd 20: sc 4, dec. around
Rnds 21- 28: sc around
Rnd 22: sc 3, dec. around
Rnd 23: sca round. FO

Arms (make two)-ch 2, sc 5 in second ch from hook.
Rnd 1: inc around
Rnds 2-3: sc around
Rnd 4: sc 2, dec. around
Rnds 5-18: sc around. FO and sew to body

Head- ch 2, sc 6 in second ch from hook.
Rnd 1: inc 2, sc. around
Rnd 2: inc 2, sc 2. around
Rnds 3-9: sc around
Rnd 10: sc 2, dec. around
Rnd 11: sc, dec. around  FO and sew to body

And there ya have it! Please let me know if you have any questions or problems with this pattern and e-mail me pictures. <3

Monster Week-Friday

Hey guys, sorry for the sort post today but I have a couple patterns to work on so I don't have a ton of time.
What would monster week be without a cute Robot. This adorable one is called Dakk and you can find him here. He would make a great gift for anyone who has a toddle, or a husband who likes robots and would go for that kind of thing. Have fun!

Monster Week-Thursday

No creepy collection is complete without the Creepy Cute Crochet Book. This book is full of monsters, robots and ninjas. I've actually gotten to use this book, and I would totally recommend it.
If you don't know how to crochet already it gives good, understandable, instructions for all the stitches you need to know. Not only does it use written instructions in the patterns but also charts and diagrams to make everything extra clear. Don't know how to read any of that? It explains that too. This is a good book to get if your just starting crocheting or pattern reading but you don't want to do some lame-o scarf. (Don't get me wrong, I'm a sucker for scarves, just not beginner scarves)

For about $10 you get 21 adorable patterns. You can order it on amazon, here. And think of the armies you could create!! Ninja armies! Zombie armies! Gladiator armies! Skeleton armies! Just think of all the armies!!! So many, many possibilities!

ORDER IT NOW!! I COMMAND YOU!! BUILD YOUR GLORIOUS EMPIRE! (and send me pictures, I wanna see)

                      See back here tomorrow for more of Monster Week.
