Free Crochet Pattern – Grizelda

Standard
Free Crochet Pattern – Grizelda

I joined an Amialong. I’ve been working diligently to finish the dogs from the pattern. It is the year of the dog according to the Chinese Calendar. I’ll  post pictures when I’m done.

Grizelda is a sparkly cuddly little unicorn. She’s ready to brighten your day. Her hooves and horn are made with a glitter yarn. The glitter yarns tend not to be very sturdy so I paired it with a sport weight cotton to give it a bit more structure.

She isn’t tested. If you make her, use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find your work.

I’ve been working on my crocheted microbes. I haven’t had a chance to type up the pattern yet, but meet Clint and Lydia. They are based on microscopic version of Chlamydia.

The beer koozies were taking up a bit of my time, but I have still been weaving.

Check out this twisted fringe.

Handwoven scarf - twisted fringe

I used the Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball. It created a wonderful ombre effect with very little work on my part.

I also like to make sure I try patterns by other designers to give me ideas for shaping, structure and texture.

This little porg is about 3″ tall. The pattern is available on Ravelry from Geeky Hooker. It turned out super cute.

Amigurumi Porg

On to your free pattern. Remember for tested patterns that have lots of pictures check out my Etsy or Ravelry pages. I entered a contest for amigurumi parents and babies. Here is my baby Platypus. His name is Gus. He is super cute and waiting to grow into a full-fledged platypus. If you make him, post a picture with #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it and give you lots of love.

Wicked Witch of the West – free Crochet Pattern

I took some time off for Christmas. We had lots of family things and I didn’t have time to crochet.

Last week was my scheduled week to make something from another designer. I am intrigued by all things taxidermy, but I don’t like the idea of dead animals in my house.

Enter Animal Heads: Trophy Heads to Crochet. The link will take you to the Amazon page to buy it. I got my copy from the library. I love the library.

I did the little mouse head first. It was quick and easy and I adore the way it turned out.

mouse

I wanted to make a little army of them to put all over my walls.

Then I decided to make the hare.

This was a challenge. While there were charts in the book, none of them made any sense. The neck and shoulder portions were really confusing. I finally finished it, but I may be done with this book. If you get the book, it is in British Crochet terms, but those are easy enough to convert.

On to the free pattern: I made this Wicked Witch of the West for my daughter when she got the role of the Wicked Witch in the junior high musical last year.

Mummy – Free Crochet Pattern

Mummy – Free Crochet Pattern

This week, I am finishing up my testing of Brain and making sure that there are no issues with the pattern. I should have a kit finished by the beginning of next year if you want to make your own brain. Remember, there is exclusive content for those that are mailing list members.

Questions:

  1. What would you like for me to add to the blog? More patterns? Videos?
  2. Mailing list members, would you like an email when I post a new pattern?
  3. What should I make next: Princess Bride? Ghostbusters? Female comic heros? Avengers Infinity War? Leave a comment, Let me know.

I am also working on another faux taxidermy head. This one is a rabbit. The pattern is confusing the crap out of me, but I am plugging along.

Now for the free pattern. He stumbles along and hopes his wrappings don’t come undone. If you make him, post it on Instagram. Use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find him and give you lots of love.

Super cute Mummy. This one actually brings a lot of people to my table whenever I am at a show. It brings them in, but no one ever buys him. He is really sad about that.

This little guy is approximately 8″ when finished. You can make him smaller or larger depending on your hook and yarn size.

HEAD in Greymist
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face

is then embroidered on before you finish the head and stuff her.

Wakko – Free Crochet Pattern

Remember the Animaniacs? I loved this show. Yakko, Wakko and Dot were the best. Plus it spawned Pinky and the Brain.

I’ve been working on crocheting my childhood.

Here’s Wakko. You can also get Yakko. I haven’t typed Dot yet. She will be done eventually. IMG_3095

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

Spray Paint the Nose before you start crocheting to give them time to dry. I recommend 2 coats to get even coverage.

HEAD – in Black
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometime it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you finish the head and stuff him. The example pictures are from a different head that has the same construction as Black is difficult to see the stitches.

Cacti Carl – Free Pattern

I made a friend to go with Ms. Prickles. Remember her? She’s a super cute Cactus and she needed a friend.

These are the best plants for me as I really can’t kill them. My pour Cacti always get overwatered.

Remember, it isn’t tested. If there are problems or it is confusing, please let me know.

Materials

I love this Yarn – black
I love this Yarn – Limelight
I love this Yarn – Sungold
2 12 mm safety eyes
Size E crochet hook
Small Terra Cotta Pots
Poly fiberfill
Large eye blunt needle

Abbreviations

Ch – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
INC – 2 Single Crochet in designated stitch
DEC – Single Crochet 2 stitches together
DC – Double Crochet
BLO – back loops only

Gauge is not important for this project unless you have purchased a kit. Using the right size hook is important to ensure you have enough yarn.

Notes: Almost the entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.
