  1. Thanks! I might get the pdf on Etsy then. I really like the look of these Peter Rabbit amigurumis. They are very close to the look of the books I read as a child.
  2. Thanks guys for your replies! I don't know if I will end up buying it or not...I'm already making 3 amigurumis this holiday season and I spent a lot of money on related materials. The seated Bernie Sanders amigurumi pattern (the inauguration style with warm woolen mittens that went viral) I bought recently calls for embroidery floss, craft wire, wire cutters, and other odds and ends that I went and purchased on Amazon. I didn't buy the craft wire cutting kit recommended by the pattern because I didn't want to spend an extra $15 and when I could just buy the amigurumi on Amazon directly for abo
  3. Thanks for the pattern idea, I may end up making a case after my new case arrives in the mail. Because I have a lot of hooks, extra sets of steel hooks mostly but also extras of aluminum hooks.
  4. Oh these patterns look really nice...welp if only I was patient enough to wait before buying a ready made case from Hobbii...
  5. Ah I just realized you can use a non-traditional organizational bag like a makeup brush bag or toiletries travel case to organize your hooks...wonderful idea! I ended up buying a case for hooks from Hobbii online store that comes with a pouch for little things like stitch markers. Although my stitch markers came in an organized box already...
  6. I was thinking of buying a case from AliExpress for about $10 plus shipping. Or make a case like this myself. I wonder if it would cost more to make it myself...idk. Any suggestions? How do you store your hooks or needles?
  7. Yeah you can felt this kind of yarn if needed.
  8. I didn't realize they would be this big! So I bought two sets just in case my project was too big. But it seemed unnecessary when I opened both boxes...lol. I ordered both the rustproof pins and blocking boards on Amazon. When I bought the boards they were still $16.99 each but now they're listed as $18.99.
  9. I'm looking for the pattern for these guys: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/peter-rabbit-13 Sorry I should have posted the link earlier but forgot!
  10. Oh really? I never considered that pattern to be a type of filet crochet but now that you mention it, it is similar.
  11. Want to make this darling amigurumi. You can also buy the doll on Amazon here. The link to buy the pattern on Ravelry is here.
  12. I saw a pattern for Peter Rabbit amigurumis on Ravelry but they didn't include a link to buy it. So I've been thinking about where to find it...
  13. Thanks! I'm excited to make them. I just got the yarn and eyes for them. Although the Mandalorian doesn't require eyes. I have to admit, KnitPicks Shine Sport Yarn is expensive for how little yarn you get. But it seems high quality.
  14. Hi, what do you need help with?
  15. Welcome! Everyone here is so nice and helpful. Mostly I crochet doilies, if you have problems with doily patterns come to me!
  16. Okay, I can try contacting them. Thanks!
  17. Actually I have tatting thread I bought off ebay before, size 70, which is the thinnest I have. I tried to use an antique pattern from Antique Pattern Library for it but I ran into a problem. The thread is so thin that I had a real issue with using my hook to make nice looking triple crochets. The top part would be too wide. So I don't know what my problem is. I can't seem to use the size 70 thread and small hook (size .75 mm) together at the same time...I don't know what to do or how to resolve my problem. I can use size 5, 10, 20, 30, and 50 thread just fine but once it is thinner than that,
  18. Thank you for your help, I never knew there were so many different kinds of crochet thread before. And it would be wonderful to use embroidery floss sometimes but I didn't know the equivalents before this...so many thanks for that.
  19. Yeah...actually I have changed my thread size and hook size to a smaller one if my pattern turned out to ruffle midway before I started with the blocking board...so I'm familiar with that. But with my last few times using patterns from Antique Pattern Library, I ran into some trouble if I change things...so I just wanted to be on the safer side this time since I spent so much money on thread. The biggest problem I ran into in one pattern from there is that you're supposed to make meshes of a few chains and a triple crochet, but it isn't specified how many stitches to skip. Sometimes you skip o
  20. Here are the purchase links: The Mandalorian Captain America I also want to eventually make the Baby Yoda from the free pattern at Ravelry. You can also get the Mandalorian as a free pattern on her website here but I didn't want to mess up the order of the screenshots when I was making the printed pattern so I just bought the pdf and consider it a donation for all the time and effort Ollie put into making the complex Mandalorian outfit. Wish me luck, I'm off to buy the yarn now...
  21. Thank you for the suggestions. Usually I use size 10 in Aunt Lydia's style. But this time I found a pattern requesting size 5 and hook size 3, it's an antique pattern from the Antique Pattern Library. It's supposed to be a centerpiece and it's a very old pattern so I didn't want to make a mistake and use different thread size since it's already hard making an antique pattern (at least I have found that antique patterns aren't always specific and don't use modern terminology...just raises the difficulty). If it were a regular modern pattern I wouldn't worry about it. I'm still just going to buy
  22. Oh, I was specifically told that this thread was not sized according to crochet thread size, but in an entirely different system called the Perle system. That was why I asked what the crochet thread equivalent is.
  23. Hi, just started an account here! I'm excited to join you all. I've been crocheting since I was a teen, just over 20 years now. I generally make doilies and amigurumi but this holiday season I'm going to try making some scarves, hats and hopefully a poncho. Wish me luck in my crochet journey! You can find me on Ravelry here.
