Tiny lil pug pattern!

This is just a little pattern i whipped up inspired by some adorable pictures i saw. 

I used a light tan wool for the body, legs, and tail, and a mid brown wool for the ears. The face is embroidered using brown, pink, and black thread. (feel free to use buttons or felt or improvise for the face if you dont want to embroider though haha) I used a size 3 crochet hook, but a slightly larger hook is also fine.

My top 3 arts of 2016, + one collaboration with a kid I worked with! I got my tablet last February, so I think I made good progress. (As you can see, the kid was a great teacher, thanks buddy :P)

So I’ve made my own crochet sweater pattern for the first time! It’s gonna be a silver and black Venom pullover based on the one featured in @hannahblumenreich‘s wonderful comic, which you can read here: http://hannahblumenreich.tumblr.com/post/140880595913/aunt-may-does-right-by-her-nephew

After I read it, I HAD to looked at pretty much all of her spiderman art, so I REALLY recommend you at least look at the comics on her blog, they’re ALL good. (now that my nose is good and brown, let me talk about something else) After I saw the sweater in the comic, I realized that I NEEDED that sweater, but I couldn’t find one like it ANYWHERE!! So I just went “fuck it, I need that, I’m making one.”

For those that crochet, I made a chain of 45, skipped the last stitch, and single stitched until I reached the end again. Then, I did a 1:1 pattern of front-back double crochets for three rows. I switched to single stitch for the rest, and I’m basically going to do this for the entire sweater. Once that’s done, I’ll slip stich the sides and tops together and do the same 1:1 pattern of front-back doubles around the collar. I hope that was coherent. This pattern is pretty much free for anyone to use, just tell me if you make this, I’d love to see what other people make!!! (I’d also love it if you checked out @hannahblumenreich seriously I’m pretty sure she’s one of the few people I know of that loves Spiderman more than me) Also this is taking like six balls of THE SOFTEST yarn i’ve ever felt, I highly recommend Lion Brand super bulky, IT’S SO SOFT THIS IS GONNA BE THE BEST SWEATER!!!

Amigurumi Lamb

This little lamb is now selling on Etsy

You can buy the finished lamb, or the amigurumi pattern both in the shop. 

The lamb is made mostly with loop stitches cut into fur. I always thought it was a fun and easy crochet project and wanted to turn it into a pattern to share. If you do purchase a pattern, I’d love to see your results! Feel free to send photos to allie@thebhivecreations.com. You may be featured!

This is Pierre. While his job is to guard the nursery from things that go bump in the night, he’s quite a gifted storyteller. His voice is very very soft though, so you’ll have to listen carefully in the stillness of the night to hear his tales of adventure. 

Made with Heidi Bears Puff the Magic Stegosaurus Pattern. I used yarns that could pass for either DK or Worsted and an E/4, 3.5mm hook to make him giant, 32 inches from muzzle to tail tip. (this was actually an accident. I didn’t realize he would be THIS huge) Little Homie picked out the colours. I’m hoping the expecting couple will enjoy him~!
