So, a couple posts ago, I had this:
Not a hint?
Scroll down, why not?
It’s John [bleeping] Zoidberg from Futurama! In bathing costume, no less. I’ve always liked the blue and green stripes against his red-orange shell. In fact, I’d hoped to crochet the body and knit the bathing suit separately, but as you can see, this is a teeny-tiny mini amigurumi (embroidery floss, y’all) and there was just no way. Not for me, anyway. Managing a small number of knit stitches in the round is hard enough when using worsted weight yarn; I couldn’t possibly fiddle with needle-thick DPNs here.
If you’re curious about how to do color changes in the round with single crochet, take a look here. This is the project I learned the technique on some five or six years ago.
While we’re on the subject of knitting/crochet, this week I started learning how to do continental knitting (i.e. holding the yarn in my left hand, not the right.) It’s still awkward and fiddly, but when I get better at it I want to try doing two-color projects with one yarn in each hand. Cause I’m hardcore like that.
