Cutest ANTEATER you have ever seen! :)

Krawka: Anteater crochet pattern, cute baby animal pattern by Krawka

Brand new, cute and easy pattern is now in my shop:


Finished anteater is 23 cm (9 inches) long.
His long tongue can be outside - ready to eat, or hidden. You need to check when your toy will be ready, but my anteater's tongue unrolls automatically when there are ants nearby :) Ok, maybe not really, but I said so to my son. Now he is checking every morning if the ants are near or not :)

Krawka: Death of rats crochet pattern - discworld, Terry Pratchet inspired reaper death pattern Grim squeaker

What could be a better addition to your reaper costume than a death of rats sitting on your shoulder? Actually you don't even need a costume to carry him around, can you imagine the look on people faces when you walk with him on your shoulder :) I am sure all the rodents from the neighborhood would be gone in a minute.

You can buy the pattern here:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/533700011/crochet-pattern-no-1712-death-of-rats?ref=shop_home_feat_3

Crochet reaper is 16 cm (6.3 inches) height.

I've also made the Death of Fleas, I only let it out of sight for a minute and haven't seen it since :)

Winnie the Chew



Krawka: Winnie the Chew crochet pattern - Winnie the Pooh and Chewbacca mashed up in one character!
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you would mash up two best things ever - Star wars and Winnie the Pooh, if you would ask me that question few weeks ago I would say It's impossible, but than I started to wonder... Robin - Han Solo, Winnie the Pooh - Chewbacca and who would be Eeyore... my favorite AT-AT of course. It all led to a 'missing AT-eeyore tail photo session' that you can see above.

Krawka: Winnie the Chew crochet pattern - Winnie the Pooh and Chewbacca mashed up in one character!
Finished bear when standing is 33 cm (13 inches)tall. He can sit or stand because of the doll joints I placed in his legs. Other materials you might want to have before starting on this project: D hook (3,5 mm), 10 mm safety eyes, small gray button -for his bag that is fully functional - you can place your small treasures in there, like honey or ammunition :)
For my fur yarn I used 51 % acrylic, 49 % wool yarn that measures 262 yards (240 meters) for 100 g, Gauge 17.5 to 22 st is 4 inches (10 cm) than I used the dog brush to make it more furry.
for all the additional elements I used 55% cotton yarn which measures 174 yards (159 meters) for 50 g, weight Sport / 5 ply (12 wpi), Gauge 24 to 30 st is 4 inches (10 cm)

For the Winnie the Chew pattern visit my shop:

But for all those AT-AT lovers (AT-eeyore from now on) I have a small free tail pattern that you can download here:

Might the Pooh be with you!

Mushroom

Krawka: Mushroom plant crochet pattern by Krawka

Brand new, cute and easy pattern is now in my shop:


Each mushroom is around 18 cm height.
I've made these two cute mushrooms for my sons and they loved them from the first sight. They are using them as a pillows. I loved this project for so many different reasons: it was very easy with small number of parts (so not too much sewing), the finished toy is relatively big especially for my tiny sons. Also the mushrooms can be made in so many different colors.  I was thinking about brown, blue and green, but finally decided to use yellow. To be honest I am a bit sad I only have two sons and made only two mushrooms, maybe I should make some more kids/mushrooms :) Anyway I would love to see the blue mushroom, so if you are making one in blue please, please send me the photos! :)

Griffin

Krawka: Baby griffin gryphon crochet pattern by Krawka mythological creature

Brand new baby griffin pattern is now in my shop.
 
 
Crochet griffin when finished is more or less 32 cm (12.6 inches) from the front paws to the end of tail. The griffin is a creature with the back of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle - I know eagles don't have ears like that :) I just couldn't resist making those floppy ears for him. If you want you can skip them, he will be cute anyway I give a guarantees for that :)

PS. I think I will turn it into 'mythological creatures' series. I really enjoyed making this little fellow ;)

Man-eating plants in my home

Krawka: Bouquet of man eating plants for nerdy home improvementKrawka: Bouquet of man eating plants for nerdy home improvement

I recently moved and wanted to make something special for my new home and myself, this bouquet is the effect of my work. I placed it in the hallway, so everyone who enters my house can see what a twisted freaky nerdy crochet lover is leaving here :) If you too feel a bit nerdy or freaky this project is made just for you! 


Each plant in my bouquet is more or less 30 cm long (11.8 inches) I couldn't take proper measures because they bite :) One of them even ate the gnome :)

Alien xenomorph pattern

Alien xenomorph crochet pattern by Krawka - best geek pattern ever!, alien franchise, predator, prometheus, facehugger, chestburster, ridley scott inspired


I have a new pattern for you and it's a good one:


Crochet alien xenomorph, when finished, is 21 cm tall (8.2 inches).

Alien franchise was one of the movies that made a huge impact on me when I was younger. I love the whole series, always had and always will, and as a huge fan I am so proud to present my newest creation . After making he went straight to my private display and I am not giving him to anyone, anyone! :) I think he is scary with just a hint of cuteness in him which makes him so perfect, at least for me!

Although I am not giving my finished alien to anyone, anyone! I wrote the pattern and hope you will make a good use of it :)


This pattern is for the medium advanced crocheters but if you are ready to try I am always ready to help. You should know basic crochet stitches including chain, slip stitch, single crochet, decrease, increase and how to start with magic ring.

I've put wires in his arms, legs and tail, but if you are doing this as a toy for a child (My little son loves monsters and aliens, but he is afraid of squirrels, true story:) I strongly recommend you to skip wiring, make a safe plush toy instead and sew everything twice as firmly as you would normally do (especially nails and teeth).

Princess when finished is 25 cm (9.8 inches). When I started this project I couldn't decide which princess I like best, so I used a few things from each one.
