These cute little octopuses are very easy to make. I followed the pattern from khuccay.com but made mine smaller. Bought small cabin hooks and think they can become cute ornaments on handbags or as a keychain.
Gadgets: Filling, Rattle cellophane for ears, a bell. Please see under Menu and Where to buy for details. * I put the bell in the piece of plastic bag and tie tightly with floss to avoid rust when washing.
I don´t golf myself but I come from a family of (crazy♥)golfers and when my brother asked me to make a golf club cover for him I couldnt resist. He wanted a devil for one of his clubs to get the mental upper hand …well, if nothing else just to annoy some. I love a challenge so why not, I gave it a try and think it turned out quite well and so fun to do!
I searched online for someone who had done a “devil” before but realized after a while that no one had so I had to take it step by step.
Found Sarah who runs the website /blog “Repeat Crafter Me” She makes fantastic golf club cover and shares the pattern with us for free.
The next challenge was to find patterns for devil horns, searched both devil horns and Viking helmets on Pinterest and tested various free variants until I found what I was looking for.
A good friend of mine inspired me to make a shawl from the pattern book after she made her first shawl. She made an infinity shawl and I choosed to make mine as a triangle, the possibilities are endless with this pattern.
I made my first shawl in black yarn (it is difficult to see all the stitches and if you make an error but it works with good lighting) The pattern is easy to follow, it is just a matter of getting the right number of stitches in the first row then it is easy. Keep in mind that the number of stitches in the first row needs to be divisible by 4, then it’s up to you how big it gets.
You can adjust the lashes to suit your liking. I prefer when they are a little shorter and denser as on the blue shawl.
Pattern: The number of stitches in the first row needs to be divisible by 4, then it’s up to you how big it gets. I used 140 stitches in mine and it took 5-6 yarn balls including lashes.
My 8 year old nephew’s favorite is Siren Head and when I found this great pattern by All Things Knitty I had to try to make it. He wanted the cables around his head in black color instead of brown as the pattern showed but that was the only difference from the one I did. The pattern was easy to follow but you´ll need some amiguruimi experience. He was happy with the result and that’s all that counts in the end ♥
I did one leg at a time, I crocheted all the little toes first, then I crocheted each leg. Kept track of all the turns with the help of matches and after I put together the legs I worked in a continuous spiral right up to the neck. When the body was done, I made the two heads and finally the arms. As always, I sew everything together with floss as it becomes invisible seam.
