I’ve really enjoyed the Edward’s Crochet Imaginarium book by Kerry Lord because of the flip pages but also because it’s so versatile. With the experience under my belt, I’m able to modify the patterns to fit my needs while keeping the basic body shape. The kids love it because they can create monsters without even a stitch of crochet.
Here are a few various crochet projects that I’ve worked on this season. Hope you enjoy the inspiration.
This is part of a Nativity Crochet kit that I’ve been working on with a friend. My goal is to get the set completed by the end of the year. These are the three wise men. I made some modifications and changed the colors to the pattern to make them unique.
This is part of a Nativity Crochet kit that I’ve been working on with a friend. My goal is to get the set completed by the end of the year. This is Mary, Joseph and Jesus. I’m not sure on the brand of fibers I was using but it’s it looks hand woven wool yarn.
The yarn is baby blanket yarn so it’s really soft but it was bulky to work with. The hook size was recommended as M but I used a L – but even then it was too large so I removed about a dozen rows from the standard body form. Turned out great and A+ approved by my kids.
This is Josh from the Edward’s Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord crochet pattern book. (Only a few modifications on the eye plus I added a tale.) I used a variegated blue for the body, head and tale then a solid blue for the rest. During the holidays we were up north enjoying that “white stuff” that falls on the ground so he became my snow monster.
