A Gift

Recently, it was a friend’s birthday, and I decided to crochet her some amigurumi friends as a gift.

I’m quite proud of the Snitch, I think it looks really good.

If I could change one thing about it, I’d put wire in the wings so they don’t flop about, as they’re made of yarn.

The little fox was made with a pattern by Annelien Vanessche, whose Ravelry account is here if you’re curious.

It all got wrapped in a little bag with a hand-stamped birthday card. The recipient loved the gifts, and named the little fox Jamie.

Anyways, see ya!

Winter Bunting

Do you guys remember the autumn bunting I made a while ago? Well, this is a winter version of that bunting.

I made it with the same pattern as the last one, just different shades.

It’s actually two triangles shorter than the autumn one, although I’ve no idea why.

It matches the winter-y blanket, too!

I see the Three Broomsticks has been decorating for the season. 🙂

Anyways, see ya!

Finished Pineapple Shawl

The shawl I was nearly finished last Project Roundup is now finished!

You can see the pineapple edging here, the fruit is in between the leaves.

The yarn has sequins in it, and they really do sparkle under lights!

You can see it drapes wonderfully.

I’ve worn it out once, and received a lot of compliments, with people exclaiming “Wow! You made that?!” quite a bit. I’m really happy with my first handmade large item of clothing. I’ll definitely make more clothes, but maybe not for a while. I’ll stick to small stuff for a bit!

Anyways, see ya!

Crochet Occamy Pattern Part 2

The second half is here! This half of the pattern is going to cover making the wings, as well as finishing your new friend.

Part 1 is here, and covers Materials, Abbreviations and the body/head of the Occamy. As before, please don’t sell this pattern or make things to sell from it, it’s just for fun. Thank you!

Method continued
Wings
Using 2mm hook, ch 10 in lightest purple, then *ch 6 in next lightest purple.

IMG_1639_1

Sl st into 2nd ch from hook, and into next 4ch. Sl st into closest ch of foundation 10.

IMG_1642_1

Repeat from * once more, then continue down foundation ch, decreasing the number of chs out in following pattern:

IMG_1650_1

Change colours as you go down the wing, putting the darkest colour at the base of the wing. After the last sl st, fasten off and sew the sl st strips together. Weave in ends and repeat for the other wing.

IMG_1655_1

Sew them onto the Occamy approximately 7cm from the base of the head. Weave in ends after sewing to body, as well as any ends you may have forgotten, and you’re done!

A word of advice: If this is the first time you’re making this pattern, you may want to do a practice piece before making the final wings, especially if the wings are very small.

And your Occamy is complete! Sit him/her on a bookshelf or in a nest and admire your handiwork!

I’d love to see your creations, and if you have questions about the pattern, let me know!

Anyways, see ya!
