Something tells me my brain is going through baby fever. I wonder why :o)
Taking a small break from booties for a while though. 3 sweet cardigans on their way now, boy do they take longer than booties.
I spent the last week making this for my dad for fathers day. One crocheted companion cube. I took inspiration from a couple of other peoples takes on the companion cube:
One here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=234375.0
A knitted one: http://knittedcompanioncube.blogspot.com/2007/12/knitted-companion-cube-assembly.html
And another crocheted: http://www.joystiq.com/2007/12/27/today-in-joystiq-december-27-2007/
So I decided to come up with my own pattern for one. Mine is a miniture (About 15cm x 15ccm x 15cm) , as I only had 4 days to complete it and I’m not the fastest crocheter on the block. Anywho… here’s the result, and a link to my pattern in PDF form:
Companion Cube Pattern – Typo Fixed (Updated 21-04-2013)
Oh, and my pattern is loosely based off this easy crochet cube pattern. (Converted to work from the corners out rather than starting with the base face and working up)
It’s hard to give a pattern for this one as it involved random choices of stitch, colour and spike-itude and I didn’t write anything down as I did it.
Thankyou to balloonie the balloon for modelling this creation for me.
UPDATE: Attempt #2 now included. No pattern for this either.
Just finished a teddy bear beanie for Hayley. It was super fun to make, I hope it fits!
Brown wool is : Naturelle Chunky 14 ply 100% pure NZ wool.
Pink wool is : Mill Shop, Quick Knit 45% acrylic, 45% wool, 10% mohair. (feels like plastic when crocheting though….)
Approx Size : Small-Medium Women’s.
Over the past couple of months I’ve been trying my hand at non-bootie crochet projects aswell. These are mainly still baby related as they’re nice, small projects that keep my interest long enough to get finished. I’ve also made a couple of grownup hats. Some projects I’ve made from free patterns on the interwebs (URLs for these are listed in the description for each item), the rest were crochet-as-you-go sorta things.
Recently, I’ve become addicted to crochet. It all started after watching an episode of Firefly. Jane recieved a present of a knitted orange hat with ear flaps. Suddenly I had an urge to knit. So I started knitting a really ugly brown scarf. It still isn’t finished and that was months ago. I couldn’t stand the monotony of knitting. I tried spicing it up by having a go at knitting a hat on circular kneedles. I finished that hat but it wasn’t a particularly fun process. And with that my affair with knitting was over. But I still wanted to make some wicked woollen clothing and accessories. So I decided to learn to crochet.
