Candy Corn Hat

My daughter loves for me to make her hats. She has several. Well for Halloween, she wanted a candy corn hat, so I made her one. I used the red round Knifty Knitter loom. Yarn colors are yellow, pumpkin orange, white. I also used a pom pom maker to make the the white pom pom for the top. And if I do say so myself, she looks sweet enough to eat :)

Corpse Bride and Groom

I wanted to make a corpse bride and groom. My first try did not come out the way I wanted. The bottom was round and it would not stand up on its own. So I took a four peg spool knitter and made a three foot cord and wound it around the bottom.

I made this couple for a couple who are really into The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride. I did not have the patterns for any of those characters, but I did find this website http://juliastitches.blogspot.com/2008/02/amigurumi-corpse-bride-pattern.html that had a simple corpse bride and groom on it. Mine are a bit different because when I started the first round I left a long tail (about six inches) so when I got to the top of the body I was able to pull the string through. This caused the bottom to invert some so the bride and groom are able to stand up. Sorry I am unable to show you what that looks like, but I already gave them to the real bride and groom.
