It's turning out just great.

I really, really need to make one of those. My daughter is so into Dora right now; we're even doing a Dora birthday for her complete with mostly Dora gifts. LOL

This is turning out just so cute!! She is going to love it!

 

I made a pattern for Green Bay Packers and stitched it up for my nephew. But, I never heard/saw/thought of using bobbins! Are they special ones that hold a certain amount of yarn? I know I had 8 skeins at one point going. I would just turn one way, then the opposite each time so that I wouldn't tangle them.

 

I have 3 of these sort of afghan to make in the future. I'm interested in those bobbins!!

Thank you all for your encouragement with the Princess and Dora afghans.:ty

 

I haven't done anything like them in a long time.

 

Now as for the bobbins. I use the regular size bobbins . Now I was in Joann's the other day and they had real large ones for bulky yarn. I would advise getting them for a large amount of yarn. You won't have to wind yarn on the bobbin as often.

 

I find bobbins much easier to use, then using full hanks of yarn for each color. Less chance of getting tangled up.

 

Below is the Mary Maxim web site where you can see the bobbins. When you get there just put in bobbins for search and it will take you there. If you want to be ambitious, you could probable make you own.

Wow you have gotten very far with it. I started a spongebob and winnie the pooh but i cant go as fast as you because i have a 3 yr old and a one and a half yr old. They are both boys so you can about guess how much crocheting they let me do! LOL But I can always count on my 10 yr old daughter to help out some. My next one will be Dora .. my neighbors daughter says so! LOL

Anyway, I love your work, and you go so fast !!

:)

I do have one quick question. I was wondering if you carried along the black between the shoes in the first pic?

I don't know that I'd have the patience to do something that detailed, maybe someday. For now, I'll just live vicariously through you!

 

So what's next? Got any plans to top those incredible blankets? :devil

Beautiful Dora gahn ;) I would love to "tackle" something like that. It is like following a cross stitch chart?--only using crochet stitches?
