  1. Hello everyone! So I'm working on designing my first amigurumi (crocheted dolls and stuffed animals) pattern and it's basically just all basic shapes based on what I've learned from amigurumi patterns in the past. After making several amigurumi I've got the basic shapes down -- sphere, oval, elongated sphere, cylinders, etc. I can basically make any symmetrical shape. But when it comes to amigurumi there are times where you want a less symmetrical shape especially for things like heads, snouts, tails etc. I haven't been able to find any advice on more advanced amigurumi shaping. Obviously sometimes in a pattern I follow there is more advanced shaping but it's going to be different for each project once you get away from the basic shapes. Is it just trial and error? I look at these 3d shapes as a big math problem and I understand that the shapes are symmetrical because you increase or decrease evenly all the way around. So in theory increasing or decreasing only on one side should give a less symmetrical shape. But I guess I'm having a hard time envisioning how to make it work. Does anyone have any references or advice on more advanced shaping?
  2. Hello! I am designing my own patterns based off of my favorite game, World of Warcraft, and am really struggling with how to get unique shapes. Just as an example, I want to learn how to crochet Aethril (the purple/pink image linked). I am not a beginner but I am definitely not an advanced crocheter and I haven't found a good guide for oddly shaped items, like the plants in WoW. I would appreciate any help for learning how to crochet things like this. I have not found a good guide for something like this.
  3. Hi there! I'm making a baby blanket for a little girl named Rhia with the alligator/crocodile stitch. I want a border to go with it, but I have no idea what would be a good fit- especially because the blanket itself is about 1/2" thick. Any suggestions to finish up this project? Thanks!
  4. Hi, I live in Yorkshire and I am hoping to make actual wearable crochet garments and maybe designing some ..that's the plan :-) Y xx
  5. I am in the process of designing a new shawl based on an art deco stained glass window (http://img.groundspeak.com/waymarking/log/a61f7bc1-41d0-482b-8699-98206e35543d.JPG). I am making the shawl in 3 parts similar to the window. I have come up with a pattern that I love for the first two but am stumped on the last one. I must have stitched and frogged the section 5 times now and each time get something too busy, too frilly, or the pattern gets lost. Erg! I would love some inspiration from the other designers out there. What do you do when you hit a design roadblock on something that seems so promising?
  6. Hi everyone. I've been crocheting for a while but have only been designing patterns for about 6 months. I try to come up with designs that are unique and different but I've come up against a dilemma with my latest design. I designed a cap several months ago using a particular stitch, but put it aside because I was having problems with the sizing. I've been working on it again for the past week and just got the pattern all written up and was getting ready to send it to my testers when by chance I came across a pattern that was just released that is almost the exact same as mine. Now I'm concerned that someone may think I've copied her design, when in fact I designed the hat months ago. There are some obvious differences between the two hats, but they both use the same stitch and they both have a visor. Should I try to change mine? Release it anyways? Would love to hear everyone else's thoughts. TIA! Janaya
