Las Vegas Craft Group Project

Earlier this month I participated in a craft project with a group of fiber artists that created yarn bombing panels to celebrate the BTS concerts in Vegas. The idea was to make panels with appliques inspired by the “Permission to Dance” theme. Each of us worked on our own appliques for each panel to be displayed at the stadium. I decided to crochet road signs with BTS songs for one of them.

I got the idea from the signpost in the music video of PTD, but I just changed the names of the cities to songs to make it more fun. I used felt to cut the letters, I did it manually because I don’t have a Cricut. When I finished the signs I sent them to Carolyn, the crafter who knitted all the background for the appliques. She is super creative and really made a beautiful panel to display the signpost. She also made a panel for each member.

The background was custom-made by @bts_knit (IG)and also inspired by the music video of the song.

This was my contribution to this project, but there were a lot of participants and we ended up with a lot of panels. Some made whales, purple hearts and balloons, etc… Everybody was so creative and inspiring. I didn’t go to Vegas but the ones who did worked really hard on finding the right location and set up the yarn bombing display on the same day they went to the concert. Here are all the pictures they took of the final setup:

Snow Flower Crochet tutorial

Snow Flower is a song by V of BTS. It was released for Christmas last year but I still listen to it because its melody fits every season. It inspired me to make a crocheted version of the flower that I put in a terra cotta pot surrounded by snow. I decided to share the tutorial on YouTube for those who would be interested to make their own.

The flower is easy to make, I used a terra cotta pot that I painted in the same colors as the drawing cover for the song. The flower is held by a wire that I wrapped with green yarn.

I used Caron Simply soft for this project and a 2.75mm hook. I recommend to use the same type of yarn (4 ply) and hook or the bottom part might be too big for the pot.

I really enjoyed crocheting this cute flower and I hope that you will enjoy just as much. I also recommend to listen to the song while working on it, it’s a great song to crochet along!

Happy crocheting!

Shooky Crochet Pattern

The video version of this pattern is now available on YouTube https://missdolkapots.wordpress.com/2020/05/18/shooky-video-tutorial/

I love BT21 characters, they are so cute and lovable. I recently crocheted a Shooky for a giveaway, he is the easiest character to crochet out of all of them. I thought it would be great idea to upload my pattern for those who would like to have fun making their own. It is a very easy project and I think beginners will enjoy it a lot.

For this pattern you will need:

  • 2 balls of yarn of different shade of browns (mine is almond and dark brown)
  • Felt: brown, black and white
  • 2.75mm hook
  • fiberfill for stuffing
  • yarn needle
  • glue gun, or fabric glue

Abbreviations:

  • ch = chain
  • rnd = round
  • sc = single crochet
  • inc = increase
  • dec = decrease
  • st = stich

BODY:
With brown yarn, make a *magic ring
Rnd 1: 6 sc in center of the ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, inc] 6 times (18)

Rnd 29: dec 6 times (6)
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Embroider the rest of of the thread into each front loop of the remaining stitches. Pull the string to close the hole.

*if you don’t know how to make a magic ring, here is a YouTube tutorial:
** do not stuff the body too much, you don’t want it to turn it into a round ball.

ARMS (make 2):
With dark Brown yarn, 4 st in ch
Rnd 1: 2 sc, inc, turn to the other side of the chain, 2 sc (6)
Rnd 2: [inc, 2 sc] 2 times (8)
Rnd 3: [inc, 3 sc] 2 times (10)
Rnd 4: sc in each st around (10)
Rnd 5: [inc, 4 sc] 2 times (12)
Rnd 6: sc in each st around (12)
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Stuff the arms lightly and sew them to each side of the body.

LEGS (make 2):
With dark Brown yarn, 6 st in ch
Rnd 1: 4 sc, inc, turn to the other side of the chain, 3 sc, inc (11)
Rnd 2: inc, 10 sc (12)
Rnd 3: sc in each st around (12)
Rnd 4: [inc, 5 sc] 2 times (14)
Rnd 5: sc in each st around (14)
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Stuff the legs lightly and sew them to each side of the body.

Now you just need to cut the pieces to make the mouth, teeth, eyes and eyebrows. Glue everything on the face, you can use a pic of Shooky as a guide. (I put everything on the face before using the glue)

If you have any questions about this tutorial, don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments, I will do my best to answer if you have any problems following the pattern.

Happy crocheting!
