ladyphera asked: Good morning, I was wonder if you would ever consider selling the pattern for your casey plush. It looks fabulous. Thank you
I might consider it, but unfortunately I don’t think it’s allowed under Hussey’s legal stipulations. Only 2-D art is allowed to be sold, so I think even patterns are a no-go :(
My other answered asks should give you a good idea of where to start, and if you do come up with anything I would love to see it!
aclockworkmuse asked: hey! i love to crochet and really like all your work, but there was one thing I can't figure out. How did you do the hair on your little Karkat? I would love to be able to get the same kind of texture on my dolls. Thanks!
Thanks for the question and the compliment!
What I do with troll hair is take a feathered yarn (you know, those fluffy feathery ones) and pair it with the same color in a standard yarn (I use acrylic). By working both yarns together, you still get the thick regular rounds, but it’s super fluffy and soft. When you’re done, just switch to your skin color and cut both the feather and the regular yarn. You’re basically using two yarns at once, but since the feather yarn is so skinny, it doesn’t really increase the thickness.
I hope that helped! Ask away if you still have questions, and I would LOVE to see anything you do with it!
josimia asked: Ok so I understand how you build the body and head but what about the feet and tail? (Casey crochet) Any pictures or help you could give me?
The feet are 30 sts in the round wide, the toes are just toes, don’t remember. Sew them on after.
The tailllll I think I started 4 in the round, and it got up to 32 (I think 30 would have been better), but I don’t remember how I increased.
I don’t really have any pictures other than the post I’m about to post, sorry!
Anonymous asked: That helps a lot actually, thanks! Though, can you tell me anything about the making the head specifically or the belly patch? (Casey/Viceroy anon)
Um, what other details can I recall…
I started in a 6 st magic circle and increased by 6 evenly over every row for a TON of rows. The mouth was the same case until it was big enough for the mouth opening I made by chaining and then joining with scs around the top with the darker yellow, and the bottom with the belly.
Go straight for a while, then alternate decreasing and straight across, only decreasing on the jaw. (Sorry, have no idea how much I dec’d each row, or when I started)
The belly patch is worked during the regular rounds, just switch between them when you need to. I cut instead of carried the yarn at each side.
If you make one, I would love to see it, and if you could link back to me if you post it that would be really cool. But mostly I’d just love to see what you come up with!
Anonymous asked: Do you have a pattern for the homestuck salamander you made?
I do not, that was all freehand. The most I can tell you is 18mm safety eyes, mostly category 4 yarn, size F hook, he’s over 100 stitches at his widest on the body, the legs are 30 sts at the widest, and the tail is 32 sts at the widest.
The scarf is knitted with size 5 needles, same thickness yarn, 18 sts/row.
Hope that helps a little bit?
