Crochet: Beanie, Toque
Unquestionably one of the most iconic characters from the newest movie in the Star Wars franchise is a spherical astromech droid named BB-8. He’s totally adorable, and I decided to turn his likeness into a winter hat, or toque. (The shape is perfect, right?) Three drafts and a whole day of crocheting later, I had something that fit well and loo...
Crochet: Dress
This is a combination crochet and sewing dress pattern. You crochet the bodice following the pattern and then combine it with a coordinating fabric skirt. Pattern includes instructions for crocheting a toddler size 2 bodice, with suggestions for adapting to fit smaller or larger sizes.
Crochet: Baby Blanket
This blanket’s pattern is a combination of knit AND crochet, and consists of alternating panels of broomstick lace (crochet) and garter stitch (knit), so you need to be able to do both techniques.
Crochet: Bib, Purse / Handbag
This is another pattern I designed to match the style of my other Cthulhu crochet creations! I’ve decided that every geekling needs at least ONE evil bib… and why not one whose tentacles will help catch the drool for you?
Crochet: Scarf
Introducing the Scarfthulhu Cthulhu Scarf - the perfect complement to my Cthulhu Toque! This is a truly evil, yet fashionable statement in keeping warm this season.
Knitting: Cowl
Inspired by the Cousteau Hat by Typy here on Ravelry, I created this simple and free cowl pattern for those who may want to knit up a matching neckwarmer to accompany their hats. I made my husband a Cousteau Hat for Christmas and once he saw how much I love my cowls, I realized he needed a matching cowl of his own. That’s when I decided to put ...
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
I realize that a basket weave dishcloth is not original (hence why “Unoriginal” is in the name) but this is how I create the perfect basket weave dishcloth with a border so the turnout is sharp and neat.
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
ADDED 11/13/09: YOUTH SIZING! You can now make newborn, toddler, and child sizes of my Cthulhu toque along with the adult size from the same pattern. It’s like 2 patterns in 1!
Crochet: Baby Blanket
A simple, yet comforting scalloped baby blanket crochet pattern. Easy for even a beginner crocheter to tackle.
Knitting: Animal Toy
Made with super soft 100% acrylic Bernat Satin Solids yarn in Sunrise yellow and Sunset orange. I love how soft the end result is with this yarn, though you could use any acrylic you wish.
