The suggester said: "I absolutely love all the details and textures the artist was able to incorporate into this doll. All the layers of clothing she incorporated without the work looking bulky is also incredibly impressive."

Did you happen to write down your free handed work as you did it, so that there is a pattern?

This is really quality work. Very good! Beautiful!

No, I always meant her to be one of a kind, and also used whatever random yarn and thread I found so didn't take notes or anything.

Thank you!

oh. Well, that's kewl. :D How long did it take you to make her and her clothing? Something like that would take a week or so for me to finish. Of course, I get burned out easy and I have to take frequent breaks...
You have a lot of skill, how long have you been crocheting? I have been crocheting ever since December of 2009. Where did you learn how to shape things like her dresses/gowns, or did you just learn it by trial and error? (The reason I ask is because I'm trying to learn how to shape clothing because I want to make a skirt for myself and no matter what I do, whether I take appropriate measurements or not, the thing always ends up too large or too small...)
Oh! And YOU'RE WELCOME!!! :D

Can't say anymore how long it took, I made this doll a while ago, and it was worked simultanously with other projects anyway (I have a bit of crafting ADD :))
I learned to crochet about three years ago, because I wanted to make a toy Dalek for a friend. Never stopped since then. :) Doll clothes are easy because they are so small, if the fit is not right it's not too many stitches to rip and make again. I wouldn't know how to size the real thing, never made anything for myself that needed much fitting, shawls are fun and good for any size. :D

hmmm. Ok. I started crocheting in December of 2009. I know exactly what crafting ADD is, because I got that too! :D
Scarves are pretty fun too, along with beanies! :D

Is that a teeny-tiny snood?
Reply
:iconlunascrafts:
LunasCrafts Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013
I'm not native English so I'm not entirely sure if it can be called snood. :) She is wearing a French hood, which has an embellished, sort of headband-like piece in the front, and a black veil covering the back of the head. This style was made popular by Anne Boleyn,who preferred it over the gable hoods worn by Henry's first queen.

Dear heaven, what size hook/yarn did you have to use to get it to not be bulky?! Possibly the most beautifully detailed amigurumi I have ever seen, and a real joy to look at.
Reply
:iconlunascrafts:
LunasCrafts Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013
Thank you! :) Her clothes were mostly made with thread and 1.25mm hook, while the doll itself was made with 2.5mm hook and DK yarn.

O_o yikes! I can't get hooks any smaller than a 2.5mm to play nice with me at all!

Some days it hurts my hand too, so I rarely make thread crochet. I have lots of respect for people who make miniature crochet all the time...

I revise my previous statement, my smallest hook is 3.25mm. It's not pain, I literally can't get tiny steel hooks to work. I try to make loops and it drops the stitch. I have loads of respect for the tiny crocheters as well.

:iconlunascrafts:
LunasCrafts Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013
Have you tried steel hooks by different makers? Small differences in shape can make a completely different experience. I was lucky with my steel hooks, but with regular hooks I had to test several brands with comfort handle until I found the one I truly like. With others, when I was working fast, they would split the yarn, or drop the stitch, or drag the yarn etc.

I just can't keep hold of the yarn with it, and it's approximately the same shape as what I'm used to with my aluminum hooks. the tiny hooks don't like me.
