Dark/goth crochet patterns?

24 posts in this topic

My gothy friend's b-day is coming up and loves handmade things. The only problem: I don't have any dark/goth patterns! Any patterns with skull and crossbones, goth accessories and/or anything dark would be most appreciated!

My goth girlfriend loves the idea of long wristwarmers, in black of course. I want to make her some for Valentine's Day by lengthening Deneen's.

Not sure what exactly you're looking for so here's a variety of things.

 

This scarf is knitted but you can still follow the chart and make it crochet:

Same thing for this purse:

Use a pattern similar to this:

 

http://deneens.blogspot.com/2005/09/marvelous-fulled-mini-tote-bag.html

 

 

This bag would be interesting in black, or deep deep red:

Spiderweb graph if you want to make a pillow, potholders, or something:

This might look gothic done in black:

Arm warmers:

This skirt is done in rose but you could do it in black:

This one in black or black and red would work. Make it like the first picture with the fringe. Fringe it with ribbons and/or yarn:

This is not a free pattern but still might be what you're looking for.

I am baffled. My son (follower once upon a time of Marilyn Manson) and his girl are still quite into gothic. Although no baby in the picture yet, the girlfriend wants me to create a gothic baby blanket. A black blanket seems a little morbid to me...am I getting old and set in my ways? Any ideas? Hopefully I have lots of time to come up with something. Any ideas would be welcome!

Don't feel bad...

 

My 14-yr-old son's prize possession is the quilt I made him several years ago with *drum roll, please* skulls and roses! Had to buy the fabrics online because nothing was available locally. It is a gorgeous quilt - I've had more compliments on it! You'd be surprised. And my darling Hubby keeps trying to steal it from him. Can you imagine? I keep taking it back for my son... eventually I'll make hubby his own:devil

Since she's asked you, that makes it much easier than trying to surprise them. Involver her. And him. Ask them what they'd like. Do they want plain black? Which I think would be fine. Would they like black and dark purple? Black and deep red? Or how about one of the links in this thread I posted. They're skulls and you'll have to follow a graph or cross stitch in later.

 

Also look at this thread:

 

http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=30833

 

There are several squares and patterns in it you could use.

 

You can do this and it'll be just beautiful. :hug

Goth crafty site (only one crochet pattern, but perhaps something may inspire from the knit charts and such):

I would think that would be an interesting challenge. Are there any motifs/colors they like? I was first thinking of a regular blanket pattern, just in black and purple stripes (or whatever colors they like - black/red?). Then I thought of this pattern:

http://www.crochetme.com/color-me

 

And thought of doing crayons in the colors they like (if it's just black/purple or black/red or just black) and having it be the "Goth Baby's crayons".

 

(I have a strange sense of humor ;) and found the idea of a "Goth Baby Blanket to be rather amusing - so I went for the "less serious" route)

Wow, my goth friend has met her male counterpart and I suppose soon I'll have to be planning for a goth baby shower if not a goth wedding. This could be fun.

YO usually means "yarn over".

Here's a list that might help you:

I don't know what's going on with Bellaonline. It used to show patterns.

If you need help with a goth wedding .. let me know .. I have a site with ideas :D I love the goth/dark lifestyle, the clothing is quite unusual, as works for me lol If I ever marry again ... highly doubtful ... I will be doing a gothic/wiccan wedding: Black and purple dress .. hand crocheted purple and black bouquet, beach at midnight, full moon .. the whole deal.

Hello there!

 

I made the gloves in the link http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=26543

 

 

I added black eyelash arround the edge. I am not sure if this helps but my sons mates think they are "goth" and they were pretty quick and easy to make and not commercially available ( here anyway)

As I stated before, all you have to do is follow the chart. One box equals one single crochet. Change colors as noted.

There are many sites that tell you how to do color work and to change colors.

Also lots of help in the pattern help section. Have a look. :)

Careful, the scull chart is in knitting stitch grid format. SC stitches are very nearly square, knit stitches are short and fat, and this is a short and fat graph intended for knit. The graph looks like the end result in knit.

 

If you follow a square graph using knit, your knit piece will appear more squashed than the graph appears.

 

If you follow a knit format graph using crochet, your crocheded piece will appear more stretched out than the graph appears.
