Rudolf

Rudolf sits by my elf girl now. :)))

For Hind Legs, after I switch to brown yarn, I did sctog in every 2nd and 3rd sts to change the total number of stitches to 6 for skinnier legs and shorten them with less rows. - I did the same on Front Legs.

I spent 3 days to "get" the part on this pattern for antlers, but it could be just me. XD  I wasn't going to give up though since they were my most favorite parts of this design!  The antlers are tubular for sturdiness and are crocheted more or less in free-form crochet style.  If you are making this Rudolf and get lost at Antlers, my advice is to strictly follow the pattern without questioning and not to assume how they are done.  In this way, you will achieve the handsome 3 pointer. :)

How would everyone like a give-away??  Stay tuned! ;)

A very simple skateboarder beanie

My hubby who skateboards had been asking me to make him a simple beanie.
He wanted "small stitches with thin yarn" for his beanie so I was thinking about knitting it with stockinette stitch and sportweight yarn... But I just didn't feel like knitting or using sportweight yarn so I just started crocheting it with single crochet stitches and rather thin worsted weight Caron's Simply Soft hoping that he would like it.

Result?

He didn't like it, he said he loved it and it was exactly like how he wanted it to be! :) He went to show the beanie to some of his skateboard buddies as soon as it was done, and that made me happy. :)



Check out other crocheters beanies made with this pattern on Ravelry!  
Anyways, I was relieved and thought maybe some of you may like to make one too. ;D
I used only chains and single crochet stitches.
I believe many of my visitors don't even need the pattern because it's really just basic hat pattern, and there may be similar one out t…

WIP - Tunisian crochet

Between other fun projects, I've been enjoying crocheting this Tunisian crochet piece so much!


The pattern I'm using is "Felted Entrelac Handbag" from Gourmet Crochet. Carolyn is one of my favorite crochet designers. I'm a big fan!
This one requires only a regular crochet hook because the rows are short, and it's just great.
I'm going to felt this after all the crocheting is done, and I can't wait. :) I believe I've never posted any felted project here before, but I did some felting last year, and I loved it. I think it's just perfect for bags.

This bag is such a quick project, and I'm hoping to finish it soon. :)
