The Pokémon Inspiration Part 4? 5? 10?!

IMG_7615My kids are ALWAYS asking me to make some new Pokemon inspired item for them.  Mummy, please make me a Pikachu hat or a Charmander doll.  I need more Pokeballs in different colours.  My friends want pokeballs too!!  So when my eldest lost his scarf/cowl at school I decided to whip this up for him.
Note: This pattern has not been tested by anyone other than me as of yet.  If you find any issues, please feel free to contact me and I will correct them.  

Optional idea Sew a piece of polar fleece half an inch thinner than the measured height of your cowl to line the inside to make it warmer and to help keep out the wind!

The Pokémon Inspiration Part 3 ‘Deck’ Cases

IMG_6833IMG_6529-1I was taking part in an online “Crochet Challenge” and had to crochet something using UK terms, but I was having a very hard time finding patterns written in UK terms.  I scoured the internet for what seemed like ages to find a nice pattern that was written in UK terms, however it seems that the few projects I did come across were not in my taste.  So I decided to take it upon myself to do something a little different.  I’m going to “translate” a US term pattern in UK terms.

For my boys birthday we threw a Pokémon inspired theme party.  For the favours, we had decided I was going to make little (what my kids call) “pokéballs” and a little bag (like My Cute Little Bags) in the pokémon original colours of red, black and white and we are going to put some Pokémon cards in them and call them “deck sacks”.  The “deck sacks” pattern is what I’m going to translate….So here it is….

My 52 Week Crochet Challenge: week 15

IMG_6833Week 15

Did you know that crochet terminology is different in the U.S. and the U.K.? Google search UK crochet patterns and find a pattern you’d like to “interpret”.

Ok, so I’m super behind on my challenges.  June was a super busy month for me and it looks like July is going to be a busy one too.  I wonder if anyone else had a hard time time finding patterns written in UK terms as I did.  I looked around the internet for what seemed like ages to find a nice pattern that was written in UK terms, however it seems that the few projects I did come across were not in my taste.  So I decided to take it upon myself to do something a little different with this weeks challenge.  I’m going to “translate” a US term pattern in UK terms.

My boys birthday is a little over a month away and we are throwing a Pokemon inspired theme party.  For the favours, we’ve decided I was going to make little pokeballs and a little bag (like my Cute Little Bags) in the pokemon original colours of red, black and white and we are going to put some Pokemon cards in them and call them “deck sacks”.  The “deck sacks” pattern is what I’m going to translate….So here it is….

The Pokémon Inspiration Part 2

IMG_6837I have been working on a pattern for some Plants Vs. Zombies inspired toys for my kids because they are obsessed with PvZ and I ended up being really inspired to use features from my PvZ pattern to make a few Pokémon inspired Pokéballs and this is what I came up with.  My kids are also super Pokémon fans, so this worked out well.  Please let me know if there are any errors and I’ll fix it up right away.  Enjoy!

The Pokemon Inspiration Part 1

I came across a free pattern for a Poke’ball inspired hat and had to make one for my 6 year old son (and 27 year old friend who’s really into gaming) who has just entered the world of Pokemon through his classmates.  I added the earflaps, a finishing edge and braids down the sides.  A link to the free pattern created by Bonnie Jacobs can be found here.
