One of these projects is my first big (and I think the biggest!) project so far - my very own Ewok Scoodie! Well, it's not exactly my own Ewok scoodie as one, I got the pattern online from a very talented person and two, I really made it for my little brother.
As you might already know, I was a little bit of a braggart when I started crochet and was able to actually make something decent. I also started doing Pinterest and pinning a sh*tload of crochet projects that I wanted to do
So while shopping for yarn during one of my yarn escapades, I spotted this carrot yarn and I thought, hey I can use this yarn for the Ewok scoodie my brother wants. And so the next thing I know, I'm double-crocheting my way into the galaxy far far away.
|Here we go!!|
Here's the link to my Ravelry project, where you can find the yarn I used, and here's the link to the original Yub Nub scoodie pattern.
For the adjustments:
Row 1: Instead of doing 140 sts, I made 180. You can also add more, depending on how long you want your scoodie to be.
Row 8: I skipped 50 sts instead of 40, and then made 80 dc's instead of 60.
Row 9-11: I added 2 more rows for a total of 5 rows, to make the hood deeper/longer.
Row 12-16 (from the original pattern, disregarding the additional 2 rows I made in the previous step): I made 30 dc instead of 20, and followed the dc increases for each row (row 12 has a total of 75 sts, row 13 has 70, row 14 with 65, and so on).
And finally after the last row, I added another row: dc 29, dc2tog, dc 29.
I added one more row after row 5 while constructing the circle: *4 sc, 2scinc, repeat from * around. And then proceeded with folding it in half and doing sc edges with the lighter-colored yarn.
The final product:
|Yes I have a cat face :3|
I did not sew in the button as the pattern instructed because I liked it open just like this. But I might add it later on, if my brother wants it. Also I didn't have fuzzy yarn at hand so my ewok ears aren't as fuzzy as they should be, but nonetheless it still looks cute! I hope my brother likes it.
So that's it! If you have any questions about the pattern and the adjustments I made, just let me know in the comments below. :)
Enjoy crocheting AF, and may the force be with you! \m/
