Oh, curse word. Today’s a blog post day, isn’t it. Um…what do I have that I can complete in like two hours? Uh…Deadpool?


Yeah…Deadpool’s been sitting in a mostly finished state since, like, January. All I really had to do today was make his accessories and embroider his eyes. It took, like an hour and a half. No idea why I didn’t finish him earlier. But, hey, it worked out in the end.

Deadpool was made using a pattern I found on Ravelry (obligatory link). I fo20170424_202206und the pattern a little hard to follow at times, and there are almost no assembly instructions, but the end product is pretty adorable. And he has katanas. I love katanas.

…Yeah, that’s all I really have to say about Deadpool. I’m honestly a little swamped with schoolwork right now, as the end of the semester’s almost here, but I do have a few larger projects in the works that I can’t wait to share with you all. With any luck, I’ll have at least one of them done for my next post.

Hulk Coasters

100_8183Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! The fifth and final Avengers Coaster is here! The design for the Hulk coasters changed dramatically since it was first planned—it started as a plain green circle with a purple stripe—and I’m really proud of how it turned out.

Now I know what you’re thinking—why no Thor coaster? The answer to that is simple, if unexciting. I couldn’t make it look right. Thor’s only recognizable motif is his hammer, mjolnir, 100_8181which doesn’t translate well into crochet in a round. After several frustrating failed attempts, I was forced to concede that my current skill level was not up to the task.

On a brighter note, all of the coaster patterns are available for free in my Ravelry shop. The pattern for the Hulk coaster is here. All of the coasters are also for sale on Etsy.

Hawkeye Coasters

100_8182Time for the fourth installment in the Avengers coasters saga! This coaster is based on my personal favorite avenger, Hawkeye, and is very, very purple.

To be honest, I was expecting this to be a lot harder than it actually was. My original idea for this design was a simple bow and arrow, which is surprisingly hard to make when you’re crocheting in a round. It wasn’t until I sat down to design this and thought to do a google image search for “Hawkeye symbol” that I hit upon the idea to instead make a targeting scope. This came with it’s own set of challenges—mostly in partitioning a circle into four even sections—but I think it turned out nice.

As always, you can download this pattern in my Ravelry store. The direct link to the coaster pattern is

Black Widow Coasters

100_8141If you’re one of the two people who have been following this blog, you may have noticed that I like making sets of things. The lone matoki post has that ominous “Part 1” on it, and this is the third Avengers themed coaster in three months. So, yes, it’s official. I am making a set of Avengers Coasters. Yay!

This particular set came about as an exercise in pattern making. These coasters are some of the first designs I’ve ever made myself, and the first designs I have written patterns about. (Except the Captain America coasters. Those were made from someone else’s pattern.) This is as much an exercise in learning to write good patterns as it is in making small, superhero themed motifs.

That’s also why Black Widow came third instead of, say, Thor.In addition to being a bad-ass female super spy, Black Widow has a symbol that is relatively easy to fit inside a circle. Incidentally, the pattern for this coaster can be found on Ravelry, which is where I will be posting all of my patterns from now on. Usually before they end up on the blog. (Here’s the direct link to the pattern.)

So, in sum, you’re going to be seeing a lot of these over the next few months. I leave you now with a picture of the first half of the set, and hope you will bear with me while I finish the other three.

Iron Man Coaster Tutorial

100_8045I’ve always been a huge fan of superheroes, and Iron Man is one of my longstanding favorites. As such, I made this coaster based loosely around Marvel’s favorite genius millionaire playboy. The pattern is explained below (with pictures!), or it can be downloaded here: Iron Man Coaster Pattern

While I do not own Iron Man, or any related products or entities, I do own this pattern. You are free to make as many of the coasters as you wish, incorporate them into other designs, or even sell them. However, you may not post this pattern anywhere else, nor may you sell this pattern. If you do decide to make something out of this, please send me a picture. I’d love to see it!

Captain America Coasters

In light of the recent release of Captain America: Civil War, I made coasters based on Captain America and the Winter Soldier!



These coasters were handmade by Autumn from a design and pattern by ©Ahooka /

To be honest, I actually made these as a Christmas present for Sara back in January. However, school wound up taking more time than I originally thought it would, and Entropy Creations was put on hold for last semester. That said, with the recent release of Civil War, I felt now would be the perfect time to share them.

The pattern can be found here, along with a great tutorial for how to crochet a star inside a circle. The tutorial only goes into how to make the Captain America coasters, however, the Winter Soldier coaster is easily made by switching a few colors around.
