The Bigger Ghost and The Mini Ghost:

P1020117

The bigger ghost came out a little bigger then the original pattern and I used smaller safety eyes then the pattern suggested. The pattern is a free crochet pattern designed by Hookabee.

You can down load your free copy of the pattern on Hookabee’s website in the free pattern section.

Here is the link to her site:

Hookabee Patterns

She also has a good podcast on YouTube you can find it just by typing Hookabee in the search section. She also has other free and payed for crochet patterns for other cute amigurumi’s on here website.

I decided that I wanted a smaller ghost so I used hookabee’s pattern as a reference and made it into a smaller scale and out popped out a mini ghost.

The yarn That I used for the bigger ghost and mini ghost is:

P1020123

The yarn I used was paintbox cotton DK yarn. In the colors yellow-green for the bigger green Ghost and Mustered Yellow for the mini  Ghost. For the eyes I used black 7.5mm safety eyes for the bigger ghost and black 6mm safety eyes for the mini ghost. Both ghost eyes were from 6060 eyes, crocheted with a furls crochet odsey hook in size D, stuffed with polly-fill stuffing, and cotton floss in black for their lips.

The mini burger and mini sprite bottle:

P1020122

For the mini burger and mini sprite bottle their patterns are both made by Amigurumi food. The mini burger is a free pattern that can be found on Amigurumi food’s web site under the free patterns section .

Here is a link where you can find the mini burger’s  pattern:

http://www.amigurumifood.com/2015/09/free-pattern-all-together.html

 

The mini sprite bottle can be found in Amigurumi food’s Etsy store it is $5.00 and has another way to make the sprite bottle into a coke a cola bottle as well a chicken burger pattern and french fry’s pattern. It is worth buying the pattern that you can then down load onto you computer. It has directions that are good for first time amigurumi crocheter’s as well as if you have made a lot of amigurumi’s. Lots of good pic’s. Very good directions and you get 3 patterns that are all very fun looking to make as well as different choice’s of the color of yarn for the soda flavor that you want to make. You can go to the Amigurumi food’s Etsy store by going to her web page and by clicking the Etsy circle on her page it is orange with a white E inside it.

Here is her web page:

http://www.amigurumifood.com

She has lots of other fun crochet patterns to buy and for free. Like in my blogs and podcast’s before this I have crocheted a few other items off of Amigurumi food’s web site that were lots of fun. As well as I will be crocheting some more of her items. Love all of her crochet patterns/ items.

 

The yarn for the mini burger that I used was:

P1020126

PaintBox cotton Dk. In the shades yellow-green for the light green color, for the red color it was called pillar red, for the light brown color in light carmeled , paper white, coffee brown, and mustard yellow.  For the burgers face it was done in black cotton floss for the lips, 6mm safety eyes from 6060 eyes, pink cotton floss for the cheeks, white cotton floss for the seeds on the bun. Stuffed with polly-fill stuffing for only the bun being stuffed. Crochet hook odesy hook made by furls crochet in size D.  I do plan on putting a string down the middle of the mini burger , that way all the peace’s stay together, and  that way I can hang it up some place.

 

For the Mini soda bottle the yarn that was used is:

P1020147

Paintbox Yarn in their cotton DK yarn. In the yarn colors paper white, mustard yellow, grass-green, and evergreen for the darn green color. Stuffed with polly-fill stuffing. The straw part is on stuffed  and just has a stitch in it, so that way it stayed bent, you could add a pipe cleaner or wire in it to make it even more bendy if you want that kind of effect for the straw. For the face it was black 6mm eyes from 6060 eyes , cotton floss in lime green for the cheeks and black for the lips. Crochet hook size D furls crochet odesy hook.

The mini corn:

P1020131

The mini corn was made with a Twinki Chan pattern that was linked to a video of her making the corn together with you in one of her payed for video classes. The web site that her payed for video was on is $4.99 a month they had a few other payment options that made it less money to get but I picked the monthly one. You get the first 14 days free. The class area that the pattern is found on has other videos and pattern you can watch as well as a few other Twinki Chan patterns and videos. Each video that you get, has the video, a pdf  of the pattern, and lots of info on how to make the items. It is great for any stage of crochet that you are at and is easy to fallow/understand as well as really fun to make and fallow along  together with someone. It really is like you are crocheting together with someone. Loved this pattern and video.

Here is the link off of the Twinki Chan sight:

Twink Chan I made another one of her patterns and have talked a little about her on my podcast/yarn chat as well as in one of my other blogs. She has lots of patterns that are free on her site and on her YouTube channel. To get to her YouTube channel go to YouTube and go to the search area on YouTube and type in Twinki Chan. Then her YouTube page should pop up, you can then go to her YouTube channel and learn to crochet /knit some yummy food items and none food items together with her. I love all of her items and will be crocheting/making more of her items. She also has a link to her etsy store on her web page and YouTube channel where you can buy her paid for crochet/knitting patterns Pdf’s.

Crochet Hooks

Hello everyone today’s post is about finding the right crochet hook.
I love crocheting for hours an hours on end. I also hurt my wrist about 2 years ago. The injury will act up from time to time causing my wrist to hurt so bad that it is hard to crochet and grip things.  As my wrist started hurting more and more I began looking into better crochet hooks then the hooks like the boye hooks that i started crocheting with.

img_8383
I did a online search for crochet hooks with rubber grips on them. I didn’t have a lot of money to spend on the hooks @ the time, also I like finding things that do not cost a lot but work out nice. I found a pack of crochet hooks on amazon that had the rubber grips i was looking for on them. I ordered them. They were in rainbow colors I loved that as well as they felt nice, griped nice, an were light weight.

img_8384
I ended up using the pretty rainbow rubber grip hooks for 2 years. I enjoyed useing them they helped my wrist feel some what better but my wrist still had flar ups. As the time went buy as I was useing the rainbow rubber crochet hooks i thought to my self  it would be nice to get a wooden crochet hook maybe that would help my wrist have less issues when i crochet. I did a internet search for wooden crochet hooks an found the furls crochet hooks web site . I was like wow it would be nice to own a hand made crochet hook but the price isn”t going to work out now. i ended up saving that area on the site for later. When I was on the furls site there was a couple other cheeper crochet hook options that I was looking @ it was there odessy hook and candy shop hook. I  thought to my self this is going to be my gift to my self. I then waited 6 months later when it was my birthday and furls had a sale going on. I first got one candy shop hook. img_8385-1

The candy shop hook I fell in love with right away. It was so light weight, Fit nice in my small hands, It helped me be a faster crocheter. As well as it helped make my wrist not flare up as often. Not to mention the candy shop hooks come in rainbow colors that is such a cool thing. The furls crochet hooks were so worth the extra money to buy. I ended up buying a couple more of the hooks as well as trying out the furls odessy hooks.

img_8386
I loved using the furls odessey hook just as much as the candy shop hook. The thing that was different with the odessy hook was the yarn glided off the hook really fast due to the weight of the hook being in the back. It ended up making where I could crochet faster then ever before as well as improving the flare ups of my wrist injury. Currently my wrist hardly ever flare’s up due to crocheting any more. I have realized how it is sometimes worth putting extra money into things that I love to make my life some what better. That way I live with less pain. I will keep collecting the furls crochet hooks. I will say the only issue that I had with the furls crochet hooks is that the candy shop hooks can break easy. One day i was crocheting a project an i ended up breaking the tip of the crochet hook off of 2 of my candy shop hooks.

img_7994img_7995img_7999img_8001
When I broke both of the candy shop hooks I wrote a email to furls about it. They sent me 2 new candy shop crochet hooks free of cost right away. I was so happy that they really lived up to there life time warranty on there hooks. I learned that the candy shop hooks on the smaller hook sizes can break easy. That is the reason I ended up starting to buy the smaller sized hooks in the furls odessey so I don’t have to worry about the hooks having issues with the yarn I use with them as well as the size of hook issue. Other then that the furls crochet hooks i highly recommend  everyone that is serious about crochet to invest in hook that will save there hands/wrists as well as make it so they can crochet faster/smoother an make there crochet pretties look even betters. You can get the furls hooks @ furlscrochet.com.

Thank you for reading my blog post. Please fallow my page an my other social media sites on face book, twitter an Instagram.
