Watch me Crochet: Assassin’s Creed

This past week a new Assassin’s Creed game was announced. I’m a pretty decent fan of the franchise, so I figured why not add Altair, from the first Assassin’s Creed game, to the group of pod people! And while I’m at it, why not make a video!

And even further, why not do another Pokemon giveaway!! So thats what I did, a new Watch me Crochet episode, new character added to the Etsy, and a giveaway!

All you have to do to win a free Pokeball is go to Instagram or the Assassin’s Creed video and comment leaving your guess at who this Pokemon is!

How to Crochet: A Triforce

I used to (am) a big Nintendo fan.. I had it painted on my wall, every system, the works. Why do I mention that? Well because the new Nintendo system, the Wii U, just came out this week and because of my love for Nintendo I felt the need to come out with a new pattern.

One of my favorite game series, like many others, is The Legend of Zelda, and obviously, one of the best of them is the Majora’s Mask. Check out my versions of the Deku, Zora, and Majora’s Masks available now in the Ravelry, Etsy, and Craftsy Store!! But that’s not it, check out the free pattern below of how to make a simple, yet effective triforce!

 

 

 

You can get the Deku, Zora, and Majora’s Mask patterns all for $5 on Ravelry or Etsy, or by simply clicking –>HERE<–

But what good is Link without a Triforce, right?

Here’s how to make tiny but simple triangles, which when put together make a perfect triforce, as seen here on an iPhone cover (available in my Etsy store here).

So here’s the quick and easy triangle pattern:

Materials:
(basically any 100% cotton works)
Needle to sew in ends with

Abbreviations:

-SL.ST = Slip Stitch
-SC = Single Crochet
-Ch = Chain

-Rnd = Round

Ch 4
Rnd 1: Skip first ch, Sc one in next 3, turn (3).
Rnd 2: Don’t ch, skip first st, sc on in next 2, turn (2).
Rnd 3: Don’t ch, skip first st, sc on in next, turn (1).
Here’s the tricky part…
Rnd 4: Sc one in each Rnd and st around the little triangle, and at the corners, sc 1, m.p. (ch 2, sl.st in first ch), sc 1. Continue this pattern around the triangle then, after your 3rd m.p, sl.st 1 into the first sc made in this Rnd.
Cut and pull through, leaving a long end to sew onto your project. Make three of these and put them together to form a simple, and tiny, triforce.

I know today’s Thanksgiving, and I need to apologize for not coming out with a new pattern related to that, but here’s a little gift. Tomorrow, as you may know, is Black Friday, and this Monday is Cyber Monday, you know… the days of the year where sales in store and online go out the ying yang. Check back tomorrow to get some coupons to go along side the awesome sales on my Etsy!

Winner for the November Giveaway!

So Sunday was the end of the November Giveaway, and the winner is…….

Casa De La Zombies!

She was the first to guess the one answer that was the only one everyone got, which was #2, The elf hat. But heres the problem, Casa De La Zombies, if youre reading this, I don’t have any way to send you your winnings, or contact you, so if you can, comment on this, or email me at louies.loops@gmail.com so I can send you it! Haha

So here are the answers!

1.

So this is supposed to be a fox tail, the finished product is coming very soon.

2.

Like I said before, this is an elf hat with removable ears, haha. Pretty similar to the wizard hat posted a few weeks ago.

3.

This one is easily the most difficult.
Okay, so this one wasn’t really fair to be honest. :/ sorry. It’s a couple of sideburns, that can be put on glasses. You should see it later this week, along with the pattern. Again, sorry about making it confusing haha.

Thanks again to everyone who guessed, and keep checking back for more giveaways, and the hats and patterns that will be coming soon! And again, Casa De La Zombies, contact me please!

Early November Giveaway Game!

So Novembers almost here, and with it, will be coming some great new crafts and patterns! But the things I’m planning are not exactly finished yet. So, I thought why not give a sneak preview of whats to come, as well as making it into a game! With a prize of course. 🙂

So here are three different items that are not finished yet, but are on their way, and enough done to be able to tell what they are. But it’s not going to be easy. The rules of the game are pretty simple, you have to guess what each of the items are and post your guesses in the comment box below or on Facebook. Whoever comments with the most correct answers fastest will be shipped one of the items! Pretty simple. This game will end on November 15th because that’s when I’m going to start posting the answers! Good Luck!

Here are the items to guess:

1.

2.

3.

This one is easily the most difficult.

So there you have it! Let the games begin and may the odds be ever in your favor!
