Venture Bros - The Monarch Symbol - FREE Colorwork Chart

This week I was asked to make a hat with The Monarch symbol it.

"Ok," I said. And I did.

It was excellent for breaking up the monotony of making bigfoot hat after bigfoot hat, that's for sure. And here's the chart! Feel free to use it for knitting, crochet, needlepoint, or whatever fibercraft floats your boat. If you do use it, please link back to this post to share it with the rest of the Internet!

For more, give my Facebook page a like and also swing by my Etsy shop.

For the hat, I actually duplicate stitched the pattern onto a plain black knit hat I made. I love any excuse to duplicate stitch and this was a perfect opportunity to do so. Duplicate stitch is my current favorite thing. There are tons of tutorials online. Here's a good one.

Happy crafting and holidays and holiday crafting! XOXOX

More Free Dragon Age Heraldry Colorwork Charts - Kirkwall, Legion of the Dead, Seekers of Truth

Check out last week's post for the Antivan Crows, Circle of Magi, Dalish and Inquisition heraldry colorwork charts! [Here]

This week, I give to you Kirkwall, the Legion of the Dead and the Seekers of Truth. The Seeker chart is a little discombobulated with colors. Use your brain. The sigil is solid white, the background is two-toned with a split down the middle (or solid - it looks rad in solid black or black and gray with white...embrace your aesthetic)!

I've made all of these using sc tapestry crochet, but they should be fine for other yarn and needlework. Right click > Open in new window > Save so you can enlarge them as you see fit.

Make tweaks and use them how you like. I appreciate a link back to this post though! Like my Facebook page for more and visit my Etsy to buy goodies.

Free Dragon Age Heraldry Colorwork Charts - Antivan Crows, Circle of Magi, Dalish and Inquisition

Oops, I've been hoarding colorwork charts. I made these forever ago for some crochet patches and then totally forgot about them. Dragon Age is pretty much my favorite franchise of anything ever and I have a ton of these heraldry charts because I got really over-excited about making them. I'll share more next week after I clean them up. 

I've used all of these here (Antivan Crows, Circle of Magi, Dalish and Inquisition) with sc tapestry crochet and they turned out great. They should work for other fiber and needle-y projects and they are free for you to use! Of course.

Give my Facebook page a like and link back this post if you make something rad. 

p.s. I apologize for how dark the Inquisition chart is. It's rare that I actually make charts in sort of the correct colors and I really should have used a lighter blue for better visibility of grid lines. My bad.

Here's a look at some of my crochet patches where you can see some of these charts in action:

Happy crafting, you nerds.

Crochet CL4P-TP: A Useless Robot Made of Yarn

Everyone's favorite most hated robot on Pandora (and Elpis) is now available in an adorable 13" crochet version...made by me, not by Hyperion! And made of yarn! For cuddles?!

He's supposed to be a general purpose robot, but we all know he's a useless piece of garbage! A crochet Claptrap is just as useless, but at least he doesn't talk, so that's an improvement.

Made-to-Order Crochet Claptrap
$90 + shipping
1-2 week production time, but I will try DAMN HARD to do it in under a week, especially with the holiday season upon us...I will also do colors other than yellow!

Claptrap Crochet Pattern
Includes charts and other junk in an attempt to help you understand my brainprocess.

I do intend to have some ready-to-ship Claptraps (available for cheaper) in the shop at some point, but I don't know if it will be before the mighty gift-giving holidays that are fast approaching.

Observe! WIP pictures!

Claptrap is a nosy little shit...

Here is Claptrap on a dog.
