Every time my phone dings that I got a message from paypal I smile. I wanted to give a shout out to everyone who has helped support my crochet obsession by either buying my patterns or ordering a commission.
I never expected that when I picked up yarn an a hook so many years ago I would be writing and selling my own patterns, and it still amazes me every time I see I sold an other. So as my thanks to all of you on June 20th 2017 I am doing a freebie event again. To celebrate my birthday and all of you I, you can get one of my pay patterns from my Ravelry shop for free with the promo code 'HappyBday' on June 20th 2017. The code will only be active for the 24 hours of June 20th so remember to come back!
Ok it's finished! The beanie is a simple hdc in the round starting with 8 sitchs, working increases for the first 5 rounds, the just hdc till row 11, work 12-13 in an alternating front/back post ribbing.
The beard is just alternating rows of bobble and sc, with a chain 5 in the middle of the 3rd bobble row, and when working the last sc row do bobble stitch 3 times in the chain for a little mustache.
I need to get my laptop back so I can reload all my software and get back to writing out patterns (my phone auto corrects any crochet terms into other words) and be able to get back to my fairy tail piece I was working on.
I have finally finished this one. I am not happy with the eyes at all. I made a templet to use to sponge the paint on and that worked well, its just painting on black is not easy or forgiving. Unlike the last pony I did, this one had different eyes more almond shaped with a slit pupil. I had done a crochet version of the helmet but it was just way to bulky so I decided the helmet, cutie mark, and necklace would all have to be done in felt. Doing it that way makes it so the helmet and necklace are both removable. Since I could not find a pattern for this pony I mashed up bits from the Apple Jack I did and free handed the rest. I really like how the wings came out but you cant see that from the photos it is so hard to get a good photo of black yarn. I am hoping my niece loves it, as her birthday party is next weekend.
