Edited to fix dumbass google privacy. Privacy is a MYTH, goddamnit, stop pretending I haz it  :argh!:

Cool! Nice even stitches. My first hat looked like it was pulled in pieces out of a dog's ass and then stapled together. She's picking things up rather handily. :) If she has questions or whatnot, I'm happy to help out.

She started with some magazine thing that does new shit every fortnight and you end up with a square, what are then all sewn or knitted together and it makes a blanket. Every new stich there's a couple of hours of swearing and "I can't get my head round this"-ing and then she susses it out. I dig it - all the beanies I can eat.

She's promised me an awesome Jack Skellington - skull beanie but I had an idea for a Jack-o lantern which led me to google image search which led me to THIS!

I will sell my right nut on ebay for one of these. Question: How soon will P3nTGF learn how to do this or how much would you charge for an custom. I need, not "want" but motherfucken NEED this, on my head, stat!

It looks complicated but it's really simple, just a basic crochet ear-flap beanie with crocheted bits sewn on. The body looks like like rounds of single crochet (double crochet for you across-the-pond people). As soon as she learns to join new colors to her work and such, which is also super simple, it will be nuthin'. She should be able to do it really easily, especially if you buy her the pattern and the yarn. :D And then some extra yarn for stuff she wants to make. :D That would be way cheaper than me doing it.

I've been looking online and have seen a couple dozen similar patterns but not that one exactly. Do you have a link to it, P3nT?

It's not a pattern as far as I can tell, the pic is from someone showing it off but there's no link for downloading plans or anything  :sad:

as another noob to this whole crochet business I will have to point out that americans use different terms for the stitches. What I call a double treble Curiosity/CPD would call a treble, so any patterns would have to be adapted.

I am on cowl no 4 for the xmas gifties at the moment, using a lovely super chunky soft varigated yarn to make them which is hella fast growing. I can't follow patterns yet but I can make granny squares  and make up my own pattern for a short scarf.

Thought I'd pointed that out, sorry Pixie. Your project sounds pretty cool. Share pictures! Are you on Ravelry at all?

Most of the bits are american from what I've seen, so until I can follow a British pattern comfortably I'm leaving the US sites alone.

I'm going to be edging the cowl/scarf doodads with recycled sari silk, some will be button up, some just slide over the heid.. I've varied the stitch pattern of the rows in the last one I started today, dong (UK) double-trebles in 2 rows and trebles in 2 rows.

Your cowl/scarves sound really nice. I love the colors in sari silk.

You might like Lucy of Attic 24's blog. Her terms are all UK and she has great picture tutorials. http://attic24.typepad.com/ I read her blog for the colors, not quite sari silk saturated but it reminded me of her.

I have decided what to mek a Payne for Xmas gifties.

crochet scarf, in the Fibonacci sequence, as a mobius strip. I've got some yarn for a scarf for him, and I'll post pics when I'm done. I've got some gorgeous aran tweed (which was not cheap) pure wool yarn. (I'm using a 5mm hook)

It's going to be pretty awesome looking.
