Mask (okay frankly all I can say is that this really depends on where your eyes are sewed on/glued on/ stuck on. So you have to use this with discretion)
This is based on where my amigurumi eyes are located.
R1: red colour yarn, magic ring work 6 in ring. Do not join. Insert stitch marker. (6)
R2: [2 sc in the each st] 6 times (12)
R3: [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 6 times (18)
R4: [sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st] 6 times (24)
R5: [sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in next st] 6 times (30)
R6: [sc in each st] (30)
R7: [sc in each st] (30)
R8: [sc in next 3 st, sc2tog] 6 times (24)

Here is the slightly tricky part (?) Well almost. (Or it will be due to poor explanation skills)

Position the mask titling backward, then crochet one row of sc from the first eye to the second eye. And continue until it is in a suitable size, so that it can enclose the eye. Chain3, and skip 3 and treble crochet 4 times chain 3 and join to other side of mask. You can sew on the mask so it will never come off [hopefully the picture below explains better]

Lightning thingy that sticks at the side of the mask (make 2)
Chain 3
Skip, sc in next 2
Attach to sides of the head

Crest on chest
Magic ring work 5. Join. Embroider/sew/crochet onto the chest

Embroider the lightning symbol.

Yeah and you are done!!!

Amigurumi kokeshi in a bottle

Admittedly I cannot remember what I have crocheted at all (as in I can’t remember them in chronological sequence anymore…) hmm

Oh well. My Father’s Day present that was done at midnight~

I think I should start taking better photos soon… Otherwise everyone can start to guess how messy my room is…

That took 2h 😡 hmm… But the smile my dad showed was worth it~

On a random note: my dad asked were I got the bottle from. I told him it was from the bottle of a drink that could be found in our fridge.

UPDATE: I recently discovered that this was called a kokeshi. [okay it is supposed to be one.]

Yes! My finally finished Pikachu~ it looks sooo cute right? Yes I bet it does! And if you are thinking where I got the pattern from or if I have the pattern… Heheheh… I don’t have it since I just crocheted it till I thought it looked nice…

Well it is not bad considering I only started crocheting last year in December. ^_^
