  • Baskets! (Part 1) - So, I had some little yarn balls left over from the laundry bag, so I decided to use them to make some baskets to help organize my stuff. And now I’m going to show them off one by one. Starting with this one. For these, I wanted to do something for the sides other than… Continue reading Baskets! (Part 1)
  • Baskets! (Part 2) - Okay! Time for basket number two. Let’s go! For this one, I decided to use the basket weave stitch because that seems like far and away the obvious choice for use in making a basket. Also because it’s one of those stitches that I really like but rarely end up using. I like the way… Continue reading Baskets! (Part 2)
  • Baskets! (Part 3) - Yes! The thrilling conclusion to the epic saga is here! Bask in its glory! Or, you know, just admire the pretty basket I made. That works to. This one uses the daisy stitch! Which, as it turns out, is a little bit harder to translate to basket form than I thought it’d be. See, the… Continue reading Baskets! (Part 3)
  • Baskets! (Part 4) - Want to make this? Download the pattern here! That’s right! It’s not over after all. Okay, yeah, so I did want to make more of these because they let me experiment with different stitches. So from now on, maybe just expect new baskets from time to time. This time I decided to try the harlequin… Continue reading Baskets! (Part 4)
  • Baskets! (Part 5) - Want to make this? Download the pattern here! So, a couple months ago, a friend of mine gave me this: It has a LOT of stitches, many of which I’d never even heard of before, and I thought I’d try a few of them out. And put them in the round. Because I just love making… Continue reading Baskets! (Part 5)
  • Black Widow Coasters - If 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… Continue reading Black Widow Coasters
  • Crochet Easter Eggs - This is only two days after Easter. That’s fine, right? I’m not that late. This is just a quick little idea I had. I made these in maybe an hour. I think they’re pretty cute. Mostly I was excited about taking a cute picture of them with my little rabbit. I did make a pattern… Continue reading Crochet Easter Eggs
  • Cthulhu French Press Cozy - In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming…of coffee. Sweet, delicious coffee. I might have a problem. So, this project came about for a couple of reasons. The first, is that, as I was browsing Ravelry one day about a month ago, I happened upon a multitude of patterns for french press cozies. Owning… Continue reading Cthulhu French Press Cozy
  • Frankenstein Laundry Basket - Want to make this? Download the pattern here! Two monsters in two weeks? Awesome! Of course, this one has a little bit less to do with the monster than the Vampire Scarf, but eh. It counts. So, fun fact. I moved to Virginia last week for work. This provided two interesting challenges. First, I needed… Continue reading Frankenstein Laundry Basket
  • Hawkeye Coasters - Time 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… Continue reading Hawkeye Coasters
  • Hulk Coasters - Finally, 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… Continue reading Hulk Coasters
  • Iron Man Coaster Tutorial - I’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… Continue reading Iron Man Coaster Tutorial
  • Mason Jar Pin Cushion - This seems like it should be pretty self explanatory….It’s a mason jar with a pin cushion on top. Here’s the pattern: Mason Jar Pin Cushion. I made it myself. For the past few years, I’ve been using a pin cushion that came in a cheap sewing kit my mom gave me. Those pins that are pictured… Continue reading Mason Jar Pin Cushion
  • Spider - Want to make this? Download the pattern here! Normally, I would call this pattern something like “Tiny Crochet Spider” because it’s about the same size as the other animals I make, but this spider is at best about spider size and at worst freaking huge. So um…I made something spooky again. After a brief break… Continue reading Spider
  • Tiny (Anatomically Correct) Jellyfish - Want to make this? Download the pattern here! Okay, so jellyfish don’t have eyes. But it’s a lot more anatomically correct than the previous two. So I stand by my title. So, after I posted the second version of the jellyfish, I got a Facebook message from my cousin asking if I could make a… Continue reading Tiny (Anatomically Correct) Jellyfish
  • Tiny Bag of Holding - Want to make this? Download the pattern here! There’s something about this style of bag that feels very high fantasy. I think it’s probably because the image of a small sack in that sort of teardrop shape being used to carry coins in fantasy settings is so common that it’s seared into my brain. But…that’s… Continue reading Tiny Bag of Holding
  • Tiny Crochet Coffee Mug - I made a thing! Isn’t it cute? So seeing as my blood has been almost completely replaced by coffee at this point, I thought it was about time I made a coffee themed pattern. So I made a coffee mug. Of course, the reason my blood has been replaced by coffee is the sheer amount… Continue reading Tiny Crochet Coffee Mug
  • Tiny Crochet Hat - I love tiny hats. This might be kind of obvious, seeing as my first instinct when confronted with a pattern for tiny octopi was to put little top hats on them. As such, it was only a matter of time before I came up with a tiny hat pattern for people. And I think it… Continue reading Tiny Crochet Hat
  • Tiny Crochet Jellyfish - I did it again. This time its a jellyfish. So yeah. This is another spur of the moment inspiration that I worked up right after I thought of it. Of course, I was procrastinating really, really hard at the time, but it only took an hour to make and anyway I needed the break. Anyway,… Continue reading Tiny Crochet Jellyfish
  • Tiny Crochet Lion - All right. So. One of my friends at college is in a sorority. Alpha Delta Pi (ADPi) specifically. Last week was big/little week which, for the uninitiated (like me) basically means she was assigned a new member of her sorority chapter to, essentially, shower in gifts all week. (I don’t know if that’s 100% accurate,… Continue reading Tiny Crochet Lion
  • Tiny Crochet Rabbits - 50th post WOO! Um…anyway, bunnies! Okay, one bunny. Apparently I’m too lazy to make multiple bunnies. Don’t worry, I’m sure it will multiply soon. This pattern was blissfully easy to make, partly because it’s kind of a Frankenstein’s monster of other patterns I’ve done. I took the head pretty much word for word from the… Continue reading Tiny Crochet Rabbits
  • Tiny Crochet Snake - I made a snake. Isn’t it cute? It’s a little small, but I think it’s just about the right size to be a tiny animal. I’ll probably make a longer snake eventually. Maybe that one will have a tongue. It was nice to get a chance to spend a few hours crocheting again. I should… Continue reading Tiny Crochet Snake
  • Tiny Cthulhu - Cthulhu is basically the mascot for unspeakable Lovecraftian horror. And now he’s pocket size! For the cultist on the move! So I love Cthulhu, and I’ve been meaning to make a larger version, but that wasn’t happening any time soon, so for now this’ll have to do. I actually really like the way this turned… Continue reading Tiny Cthulhu
  • Tiny Jellyfish 2.0 - Want to make this? Download the pattern here! Okay, so I alluded to this two weeks ago, and here it is. I wasn’t super happy with the original tiny jellyfish pattern I made, so I’ve been playing with it. I’ve got something now that I think is much better. This is it’s final form. There… Continue reading Tiny Jellyfish 2.0
  • Tiny Kitties - So I adore cats. I think they’re awesome and I want one. Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to adopt one right now….So I made one three. I really like the sleek, minimalist design. It has just enough elements to make clear that they are cats, while still being small and quick enough to make that… Continue reading Tiny Kitties
  • Tiny Octopi Wearing Tiny Hats - Merry Christmas everyone! I come bearing tiny octopi. Are they not adorable? I made these as Christmas presents for a couple friends of mine (pictured above holding their octopi), and we were all instantly enamored by how utterly cute they are. I was so enamored, in fact, that I made a third one, for myself.… Continue reading Tiny Octopi Wearing Tiny Hats
  • Voodoo Doll - Happy Halloween week everyone! I absolutely love Halloween and the spooky aesthetic that comes with it. This year, I decided to kick off my celebration with a creepy crochet voodoo doll. This particular voodoo doll is based off the ones used by K-pop group VIXX in the promotions for their song, “Voodoo Doll.” If you’ve… Continue reading Voodoo Doll
