    do you usually use patterns, crowe? i know how to crochet but have pretty much limited myself to hats and socks. how easy is it to figure out?

    My specialty :)

    I don't limit myself to pattens. I'll use one if I can find one, but if I can't then I make it up as I go. It's a lot of trial and error and pulling rows apart.
    Its not very hard to figure out once you understand the concept of increasing and decreasing. You have to look at things as basic shapes. It also helps to know basic sewing stitches to sew parts together.

    I'm apart of a bunch of crochet groups, follow a lot of blogs, and I google the hell out of the terms. You'd be surprised by how large the crochet following is on the internet. I started expanding my knowledge beyond making blankets because I couldn't find a hat I wanted.

    Crowebaby, you really should consider utilizing your skills and opening up an online store/blog like Torx suggested. You're very clever and talented, use it!

    Just saw the thread re-bumped.

    RRROOOOFFLL, that's fucking awesome. You've yet to PM me the details!

    Send me a PM whenever. It's handmade so that's what makes it so much better. Great job, Crowe.

    how long does it take you to make one monkey or doll?
    i'd like to have a mario mushroom

    that must take some serious skill to give them such detailed shape
  19. CroweBaby

    Depends on how big it is. The monkeys took me a while because I kept on adding things to make it better. It can take anywhere from 2 hours to 2 weeks.

    Do you make those based on patterns or do you just freehand them?
  23. CroweBaby

    CroweBaby Guest

    All of the ones that I have made for people on here have been free hand.
