I'm Back!




Lil' Zombie Stress Ball

***

DIFFICULTY: Shamefully easy

***

Materials= 2 colours of yarn (1 for body, 1 for braaaaains), 2 safety eyes, embroidery thread

Hook = Whatever you like! The smaller the hook & yarn the smaller your Zombie. I used a 3.5mm for this and it makes the little guy palm sized.

CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
ST= Stitch
FO = Finish Off
DEC = Decrease

***

Body

Foundation = Magic ring 6
Round 1= 2 SC in each ST around
Round 2= 1 SC in the next ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 3= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 4= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Round 5= 1 SC in the next 4 ST then SC twice in next ST - do this till end of round
Rounds 6 -16= SC around ((Don’t forget to stuff the foot!))
Round 17= 1 SC in the next 4 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 18= 1 SC in the next 3 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
((Add in safety eyes & stuffing here! Also stiches your lil guy a mouth with the embroidery thread.))
Round 19= 1 SC in the next 2 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
Round 20= 1 SC in the next 1 ST then DEC - do this till end of round
FO

***

Arms (make 2)

Foundation = Magic ring 6
Round 1-7= 2 SC in each ST around
FO and stuff.

***

Braaaaaaaaaaaains

There is no pattern for this, but the idea is to make a very jagged, flat swatch of fabric that you can sew to the head of your zombie. Tips: change between chaining one at the end of your round and not.

***

Sew the arms to the side of the Zombie. Now using the same colour thread you made your brains with, sew the brains to the top of you Zombie's head - just before you finish off sewing on the brains stuff them with some fiberfill! That way they are extra buldgey :D.

Beholder Pattern

Here is the patterns for Paul, the Albino Beholder. You can of course, make him a normal ruddy beholder colour if you want (it is your amigurumi :D), but I simp[ly thought the world didn’t have enough happy-go-lucky cute things ;). Also, if you find the 10 eye-stalks too much you can also put less on. (I won’t even get into an intense nerd-debate with you about hoe a beholder actually does need all 10 eyestalks in order to be awesomely magical.)

Beholder

Materials= I colour of yarn, 1 safety eye, 10 black beads (see below), yarn needle, thread for sewing a mouth

Hook = ((2.5mm)) I am not putting a 'strict' hook size here, because you can basically do this pattern with any size hook & any size yarn. The larger the yarn/hook, the larger your beholder will be. However! This is very important make sure to guage your thread around the black beads that you buy for the eye stalks. My pattern calls for a CH6 around the eye beads and you should check this before you start. If y…

Gametail: The Swords & Wizardry

I need a drink, but not any type of drink I need a cocktail! But not any kind of cocktail, I need a cocktail based off an awesome game - a gametail :D.

Earlier this week +Stacy Dellorfano posted the cover of the new Swords & Wizardry, which should be Kickstarting soon. I am super excited, because I wrote an adventure for it! And if I do say so myself, it is metal as f*!#. Stacy asked me to make an adventure bridging a story game and an OSR game. I might cover that in another blog post, but let's get on to drinking!

Take a look and the /amazing/ new cover for S&W by Kaos Nest. I used it as the inspiration for the cocktail.


Now look at this beauty. Black and pink, the perfect combination for my gametail - the Swords & Wizardy!
