Double Ended Crochet Hook

I’ve been teaching myself how to use a double ended crochet hook. I got a pattern book on ebay that uses this method. (crochenit Easy cuddly Critters by Carolyn Christmas) It’s out of print, but there were quite a few available, so just keep checking if any of you are interested. I’m making Bartholomew Bear. He’s turning out to be much larger than I thought he would. I hope I have enough yarn to finish him.

What I forgot

Oh my goodness, I forgot to show you guys what I’ve done. Shame on me! 

First off I knit some clothes for my doll from the toys to knit book and I also knit my daughter a rabbit from the well dressed bunny pattern. Her’s looks quite a bit different from the one I made for my son. For her’s I made floppy ears, larger eyes, and the nose is satin stitch rather than the v shape.



Here’s my latest. I knit him using the Well Dressed Bunny pattern. I was going to make the little clothes for him, but my son wanted him just the way he is.


Knitted Monsters

I came across a knitting pattern designer that I just love. Her name is Rebecca Danger. My favorite are her monsters. She has a book published, I think it’s called the big book of knitted monsters. You can also purchase individual downloadable patterns at her etsy shop. Danger Crafts 

So far I’ve knitted a couple of her monster “Chunk” I’ve been calling them desk monsters, because the first one I knitted to cheer up a friend who keeps it on top of her computer at work. Then my husband wanted one for HIS work as well, so desk monster seamed a good name. Now I’m working on a mom and baby monster. There going to be a gift for yet another baby shower. (I seam to be making a lot of stuff for baby showers lately)

Here are the Desk Monsters I made. They are both identical patterns, but the smaller one was made using fingering weight yarn and US size 1 1/2 sock needles. The larger one was made from worsted weight yarn and US size 4 needles.
