Lunar Chronicles Update & Exciting News!

Hi there!

I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since my last post! I’m trying not to apologize for not posting because blogging should be fun, not an obligation, but I do regret that my post number is going to go down. The real world is a pain! :D

Anywho, I wanted to stop by and show you the progress I’ve made on the Lunar Chronicles group! I finished Scarlet and Cress, and Winter is a work in progress. Here’s a quick picture I took of them in front of their respective books (I put Winter in front of Fairest, because her book isn’t out yet). Sorry for the poor quality – it was indeed a quick picture.


I’m not sure what else to do for Winter’s outfit. I thought perhaps a pair of pants would look good, and maybe some jewelry, but I welcome your suggestions! She’s also supposed to have three long scars on her face, so I’ll be embroidering those, although I feel kind of bad about it. Sorry, Winter!

I also have some super exciting news…Marissa Meyer is doing a book tour for the release of Winter, and I’m going to attend the launch party!! (This news is too exciting for just one exclamation point.)

You can read the details here – it’s a LUNAR BALL, which means BALL GOWNS, and one of my lifelong dreams is to attend a real ball. Also, I’m going to meet my favorite author, and I can’t contain my excitement. I’m planning to bring along my Lunar Chronicles amigurumi to show her, as well as my copy of Cress for her to sign. (It’s my favorite book, and that’s saying something, because I’m a voracious reader.)

*deep breath* Okay, I’ll try to calm down…I’m just a little bit excited.

I will probably continue my separate posts on each of the dolls. My goal is to get them done before November 10, which is Winter‘s release date (and the ball!)

This is a bit of a short post, but I will bid you farewell for now, my wonderful blog readers. I hope you’re all having a wonderful week! <3 Oh, and I’d love to know if any Lunar Chronicles fans are reading my blog!

How I Crocheted Cinder (From “The Lunar Chronicles”)

Hi! I’m very excited to show you my latest crochet project. :D And hello to all my new followers! It jumped from 212 to 239 in about a day, which made me very happy. *waves*

You might remember my post about Queen Levana a while ago. I mentioned that I was totally obsessed with The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. The fourth book comes out on November 10, and I can’t wait! In the meantime, I started on a project that I’d been wanting to do for months…crochet the main characters from the series. There are four books in the series, Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter (which isn’t out yet), and a prequel. I’m planning to do all four characters, and maybe another Queen Levana.


Marissa Meyer has a handy guide to Lunar Chronicles Character Traits which I used for reference. I finished Cinder a few days ago and thought I would do a summary of the yarn and patterns I used…for future reference, and for any Lunartics out there!

I recently discovered PicMonkey, so I had some fun editing this picture of Cinder. ;)

Cinder's First Spacewalk

I found it absolutely amazing how many things I needed for a small amigurumi doll! Here’s the run down.

Materials I Used

  • Red Heart Super Saver  in Buff (skin)
  • Patons Metallic Yarn (cyborg limbs)
  • anonymous brown worsted-weight yarn (hair)
  • Stylecraft Special yarn (pants)
  • gray I Love This Yarn (shirt)
  • 2 x 12 mm brown safety eyes
  • pipe cleaners (for poseability)
  • fiberfill
  • popsicle stick (to help strengthen neck)
  • brown eyeshadow (for dirt on face)
  • G (4.00 MM) crochet hook
  • needle & thread
  • yarn needle

For all of the dolls, I’m using the Mini Free Spirit pattern from By Hook, By Hand. For some reason the head was coming out oval-shaped, so I just did 13 rounds before starting the decreases. I even splurged and bought safety eyes, which I’m glad about – it makes the finished ami look a lot better, at least in my experience.  I used a G (4 MM) hook.

Cinder has a cyborg (metal) left leg and hand, so I used Patons Metallic Yarn for that. It’s hard to frog this yarn because the wool core snags on itself.



It was hard getting a wig cap that would fit perfectly on Cinder’s head. Eventually I ended up with this pattern, which is the first 5 rounds of the head pattern plus a few additional increase rounds. As you’ll see in a future post, it got much more complicated with Scarlet’s hair, which is curly.

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring
Rnd 2-5: Work in back loops for the entire wig cap. Do the increases as directed in the pattern (a basic 6-st circle).
Rnd 6-7: Increase 3 sts in each of these rounds.
Rnd 8-10: Sc in each st around. At end of last rnd, sl st, fasten off and leave the end as long as you want the hair.

Cinder’s hair is some brown 4-ply worsted weight yarn. I split up the plies and hooked 4 individual strands into each stitch…then I attacked it with the flat iron. Luckily, nothing caught on fire, and the result was this cool hair-looking yarn, which made me very happy. :D I sewed it on with sewing thread and did her hair in a ponytail. Here she is before hair…


(I placed the eyes 3 rows above the first decrease row and 5 and a half stitches apart.)


Here are the patterns I made up for her shirt and pants:

Shirt (with G hook and worsted-weight yarn)

Row 1: Foundation dc 20.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, 2 dc in next 3 sts, sk 5, 2 dc in next 5 sts, sk 5, 2 dc in last 2 sts.
Row 3: Ch 2, turn, dc across with 4 increases randomly thrown in. (It’s obviously a very precise procedure!)
Fasten off, sew back together after you put it on the doll. The neck opening is too small to fit over her hips.

Pants (with Stylecraft Special DK and a D (3.25 MM) hook)

Row 1: Foundation dc 24, sl st to form a ring.
Row 2: Ch 2, dc in each st around, sl st to join.
Row 3: Ch 2, dc 12, sl st to first dc. Dc in remaining 12 sts, sl st to first st. This divides the leg holes.
Row 4 (starting the separate leg): Ch 1, dc in next 12 sts, sl st to join.
Row 5-8 (or however long you want it): Ch 2, dc around, sl st to join.
Fasten off first leg, repeat Rows 5-8 on the other leg. Weave in ends. Sew the small gap of the foundation double crochets together. I like to sew the pants to the shirt, otherwise they’ll fall down.

Yes, I pulled out some Lucy yarn for the occasion! Only the best for Cinder.


I think it’s time for another poll! How many of you have read any books from “The Lunar Chronicles”?

You’ll be seeing a lot more about this series in the next few weeks here. I’ve finished Scarlet, Cress and have started on Winter, and I’ll be posting all about them. :)

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Saturday!

Barbie Capelet: Free Crochet Pattern

I’ve had this post written up for about a week, but WordPress wasn’t letting me upload any pictures. I’ve been trying every day to upload them, and finally it worked! Just to let you know, though,  I’ll be posting less frequently because it’s September and life gets busier this time of year. So if you don’t hear from me for a while, don’t worry! :) And now onto today’s (this evening’s?) pattern…

I watched Beauty and the Beast a month or so ago, and loved it! (I’ve been terrified of the Beast since I was a small child, so it was like exposure therapy – and now it’s one of my favorite Disney movies.) I wanted to crochet some of the outfits that Belle wears, like this cape in particular, and her yellow ball gown.


I chose not to include the hood because it would be bulky in crochet, but that would be a cool modification if you wanted to add it. I used Homespun yarn and the color happened to coordinate quite well with Rapunzel’s dress!



  • Small amount of bulky yarn (it would work with worsted too, I think, but bulky makes it warmer for whatever doll’s wearing it!)
  • I (5.50 MM) hook
  • contrasting color yarn if you want to add a border


  1. Foundation single crochet tutorial found here. You need this stitch so the capelet will stretch over the doll’s head.
  2. Fpexdc = front post extended double crochet = Yo, insert hook around post of stitch and pull up a loop, yo, pull through 1 loop, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 2x. Stitch completed. To do an increase, insert your hook around the same post and do another fpexdc.



Make 16 foundation single crochets. Sl st to form a ring.

Rnd 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a dc). Starting in same st, *dc 3, inc in next st* around. Sl st to first dc. [20 sts]

Rnd 3: Ch 2, turn, dc around, sl st to join.

Row 4: Ch 2, turn, 2 fpexdc around first st. *Fpexdc 2, 2 fpexdc around next st* 4x. Do not join.

Row 5-desired length: Ch 2, turn, dc across. (I’m pretty sure this cape is 15 rows.)

Fasten off, weave in ends…and you’re done!


Hope you’re all having a wonderful day, or whatever time it is where you live! :)

Hazel’s Dress: Free Crochet Pattern

Hi! It’s wonderful to “see” all of you again! Thanks for your lovely comments on Rapunzel’s posts; she really appreciated them, and I helped her reply. ;)

Recently I was re-reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and I had the urge to crochet a dress that Hazel wears in the book. I’m not going to spoil anything, but she goes out to dinner and wants to dress up, so she wears a “knee-length, blue-print flowey Forever 21” sundress. Here’s my interpretation of it:

IMG_4410It was fun to try and crochet a ‘print’ pattern. After many failed attempts I came up with this zigzag-y fabric that is sort of drapey too. I should have made it a round longer to make it knee-length. Maybe next time!

As an aside, the color of that cover is my FAVORITE BLUE EVER. When people ask me my favorite color, I say “The-Fault-in-Our-Stars blue.” :)

I modeled it on my Insurgent Tris Barbie because Tris is modeled after Shailene Woodley, who plays her in the movie. Well, she also plays Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars movie (which I have not seen because I’d prefer not to turn into a puddle of tears). With her short brown hair, she actually looks quite a bit like Hazel, except for the bird tattoo. I iPhotoshopped it out in these pictures.


  • Small amount of DK/#3-weight yarn I used Loops & Threads “Snuggly Wuggly Big”. I can barely make myself type that name! :) It’s over 1,000 yards of yarn so of course I didn’t use the entire thing.
  • D (3.25 MM) crochet hook. Some D hooks say they’re 3 millimeters but mine is 3.25.

Note: V-st = (dc, ch 1, dc) all in same st.
Exdc = extended double crochet = yo, pull up loop, yo pull through 1 loop, (yo pull through 2 loops) 2x.

closeup of the pattern


Ch 5.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd st from hk, dc in next st. Sc, dc.

Row 2-4: Ch 1, turn. (sc in next st, dc in next st) across.

Row 5: Ch 1, turn. (dc, sc) in first st, dc in next st. (sc in next st, dc in next st) across.

Row 6: Ch 1, turn. (Sc in next st, dc in next st) across to last st, (sc, dc) in last st.

Row 7-12: Repeat Row 2.

Row 13: Ch 1, turn, sk first st, dc in next st, (sc, dc) across.

Row 14: Ch 1, turn, (sc, dc) across to last 2 sts, yo, pull up loop in next st, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull up loop in next st, yo, draw through all loops. (That’s a dc/hdc2tog.)

Row 15-18: Repeat Row 2.

Slip stitch to the other side and sc evenly around the edge. Slip stitch the back four stitches together with the wrong side facing. Flip it back to the RS and sc evenly around the bottom edge to get 24 sts. Sl st to join. Now we’ll start the skirt.

Row 1: Ch 1 (doesn’t count as a stitch.) *V-st in next st, sc in next st* around.

Row 2-11 (or 2-12 if you want it to be knee-length): Work in BACK LOOPS only for this round and onward. *Sc in chain, V-st in sc* around. Place a stitch marker if needed to keep track of rounds.

Edging: Keep working in your continuous rounds and do *exdc, ch 2, exdc* in place of the V-st. Sl st to join, fo, weave in ends.

And you’re done!


AmiguruME: A Guest Post by Rapunzel

Hi! As you’ve probably guessed, it’s Rapunzel again. A quick reminder that I’m doing some guest posts while Cogaroo is away.

Today I wanted to talk about the book “AmiguruME” by Allison Hoffman. It’s the book that I was made from, so naturally it’s very important to me. :) Cogaroo really likes this book too, and she gives it her highest recommendations and five stars: ✩✩✩✩✩.


The great thing about AmiguruME is you can make anybody you want – there are a bunch of famous people in the book (I especially like the crochet version of Willie Nelson), but you can also crochet your coworkers, favorite book or movie characters, or yourself. Before she made me, Cogaroo crocheted an Elsa from this book – she’s in the picture above.

Cogaroo’s favorite princess is Rapunzel, so next she crocheted me!


Cogaroo said it was fun to modify the patterns and crochet different Disney characters. :) When I presented this post idea to her, she suggested that I do some side-by-side pictures of Elsa and me. I thought that would be sort of narcissistic, but she thought you might find it interesting. So…okay…here we go! You can click to enlarge any of these pictures.

Elsa has the “Short and Wide” female head and I have the “Tall and Skinny” version. That was possibly the strangest sentence I’ve ever written!

I win the “Longest Hair” contest; Elsa wins the “Most Dramatic Cape” and “Highest Heels” contest.

Elsa went to a new home after these pictures were taken. I’m happy for her, but I do miss her. :'( Hopefully Cogaroo will crochet me another friend soon!

To finish up, here’s one of my favorite pictures from my photo shoot (I included this in another post too, because I like it):


Those are Rapunzel tomatoes that I’m posing with. See any similarities? ;)

Well, this is the last you’ll hear from me for a while. Cogaroo’s coming home and she’ll be posting again soon. Like I said, I still might post in the future though…if I can convince her to let me!

It’s been a pleasure talking to you all, and I really hope you liked my posts. :)

Peace, love, and pogo sticks,

Hairdos for Really Long Hair: A Guest Post by Rapunzel

Hi again! This is Rapunzel. As a reminder, I’m doing some guest posts for Cogaroo while she’s away, and today I’ll be showing you some tips and tricks for doing really long hair.

Ever since I was first crocheted, I’ve struggled with maintaining optimal hair health. After all, my hair is about twice as tall as I am, and it’s hard to brush and style. Luckily I have a great friend who helps me with it, and she’s agreed to help me with this post!


This is a picture of Bleuette and me, next to her hairdoing supplies and my tangled mess of hair. Bleuette is a great hairstylist, and she had her work cut out for her with my hair. We came up with five hairstyles and ranked them from worst to best, which I now present to you.

#5: The Bun


Epic fail! I had way too much hair for this to work. Here’s a view from the back to make my point:


I actually fell over from the weight of my hair. Not going to work.

#4: The Loop-through


This was pretty practical, but it looks terrible (no offense, Bleuette.) It’s also very heavy. So we moved on to…

#3: Rope Braid


I love how this one looked (haha, it actually looks like a hank of yarn!) but it was pretty bunchy around my face, and Bleuette says it was almost impossible to do. Maybe for special occasions, but not for everyday wear.

#2: Four-STrand Braid


This one was my favorite! But again, it took Bleuette about twice as long to do this one as a normal braid, and I can’t imagine doing it on my own.

#1: Three-Strand Braid


This one was the winner! It’s possible to do on my own, and you can’t beat the traditional braid. Bleuette and I are both pleased with it. :)


That concludes our examination of several hairdos for Rapunzel-length hair…I hope you enjoyed it. :) I can’t believe this is my fourth guest post already! Hopefully you haven’t gotten tired of me yet. <3

See you next week!

Granny Triangle Shawl: A Guest Post by Rapunzel

Hi! It’s Rapunzel again. As a reminder, I’m doing guest posts for Cogaroo while she’s away – I’m happy to be back and sharing another project with you.

I’m especially excited about this one because it was a very time-consuming project…and I really like how it turned out.

Look what I made!

Look what I made!

Yes, I made a granny triangle shawl! Cogaroo let me use this fancy skein of yarn from her stash. Purple is my favorite color (which you probably guessed), and I loved all the shades of purple in the yarn.

Please excuse the dead grass.

Please excuse the dead grass in the picture above. Also, this yarn is very difficult to photograph – the color is darker than that in real life. But it’s so warm and cozy. (You might think it’s weird to be crocheting a shawl in summer, but the air conditioning is on indoors and it gets pretty cold.)

Cogaroo helped me take these pictures before she left, but here’s a selfie I took:


In this picture I rolled up the shawl and tied it around my neck, kind of like a bandanna.

If you’re interested in making a granny shawl, there are tons of patterns floating about the blogoverse. This pattern looks to be what I did. I used an “I” hook and some unlabeled bulky weight yarn – it felt kind of wooly.


Another picture, just because! I’m wearing it now as I type. :)

Well, I’m running a little shorter on time today, so I think I’ll end this post here. I’m really enjoying this whole blogging business. Maybe I can convince Cogaroo to make me a blog! ;)

Hope you’re all having a wonderful day,

Guest Posting 101: A Guest Post by Rapunzel

Hi, everyone! This is Rapunzel. As a reminder, I’m doing some guest posts while Cogaroo is away, which I’m really excited about – the guest posts, not Cogaroo being away. :)

After I did my last post about the rag rug, I realized that guest posting has its own science – there are certain things a person should and shouldn’t do when they’re posting on someone else’s blog. I put a lot of thought into this before my first post, and I thought I would share my ideas with you, in case you ever wanted to guest post on somebody’s blog!


1. Know your audience

This is fairly evident, but if you’re posting on a sports-themed blog, you wouldn’t discuss Les Misérables or the best way to make a smoothie. You might, however, post about the best running shoes or ways to store your hockey sticks. Since I’m posting on Cogaroo Crafts, my posts will have something to do with crafting (apart from this one – but it’s still relevant!)

On the other hand, you probably wouldn’t have been offered a chance to guest post if you posted for a different audience. Still, it’s good to remember who will be reading your posts.

2. Read The archives

Before I wrote my first post, I went through most of Cogaroo’s archives to see what she liked to post about. I found that most of her posts were about crochet, and she also does a lot of doll related stuff. It’s good to make sure you don’t end up repeating a past post (so if I posted a pattern for Cinderella’s wedding dress, for example, that would be bad because Cogaroo’s already done that) – but you should also think about making your posts similar.

3. Introduce Yourself

If their typical blogger isn’t around, people want to get to know you. So tell them your name, a couple things about yourself, and be friendly. Use a couple emojis if you want! :) At the end of my posts, there’s an ‘About the Author’ section with my picture and a little bit about me. This is a nice way of providing that information without repeating it every post.

4. Figure Out The Comment Situation

There are a couple situations in which you would guest post: one is filling in while the blogger’s on vacation (like me), and one is just a ‘hey do you want to post?’ kind of thing. Either way, you should check and see what you should do about comments. Do you need to approve them? Should you reply to them? Cogaroo and I decided that we would wait until she returned to reply to comments. If someone asks a question, though, it’s probably best to reply to that.

If you’re using that person’s blogging account, make sure to sign your name at the end. For example, if I replied to a comment and said “Having yarn hair is really rough!”, it would look weird if “Cogaroo” showed up with that.

5. Be courteous

This is not the place to go ranting about the blogger. Even if you dislike their blog layout or something, it’s probably best to not say “I hate this sidebar! Nothing’s in order!” You could voice that concern to them, but don’t try and turn their followers against them. (I realize this sounds like staging a rebellion. Don’t do that either.) Also, don’t bring up political issues or any subjects that can make people pull out their soapboxes. Unless, of course, the blog is solely about controversial subjects!

6. Thank your host

Even just a nice “Thanks so much to Cogaroo for giving me this opportunity!” will do wonders. After all, you’re grateful for the opportunity, right? You’re more likely to be invited back if you give a thank-you, and it will make the readers look favorably upon you.

7. Make your posts concise but meaningful

This is something I can struggle with, I admit it – but it’s important. If you waffle on for 3,000 words while the typical post length is about 500, it won’t fit with the blog. If you do a three-word microblog post, that wouldn’t fit either. I like to give an introduction, talk a little bit about the topic, and then sign off. Also, if you don’t have something meaningful to say, don’t guest post in the first place! For example, in the last post, if I just wrote “I crocheted a rag rug” and inserted a picture, that would be kind of pointless.

Tip #8: Post cool pictures like Rapunzel posing by the Rapunzel tomatoes! :)

Bonus Tip: Post cool pictures like Rapunzel posing by the Rapunzel tomatoes! :)

What do you think about these tips? Do you have anything you’d like to add?

I’ll see you next Monday for another guest post (in which I’ll try to follow all my self-appointed rules). :)

Peace, love, and pogo sticks,

Crochet a Rag Rug (For Your Dolls): A Guest Post by Rapunzel

Hello, everyone! This is not Cogaroo blogging – she’s away on vacation, and has no internet access. So she asked me to do a few posts while she’s away, and I happily agreed. I’m Rapunzel, a crocheted doll, and I enjoy writing, reading, candlestick making, and crafting. (She also gave me free reign to her yarn stash while she’s away – yay!)

Here's a selfie of me!

Here’s a selfie of me!

Since this is mainly a crochet blog, I thought I would share a crochet project with you all! You see, the floor in my room is really cold, and I wanted to make a rug. I raided the yarn and crocheted this:

It was hard crocheting with such a big crochet hook! It was “I” in human sizes, but it felt more like 100 millimeters. A great weight-lifting workout. I followed the basic rag rug pattern, with single crochets in an oval. All the same, I think some of you might want directions so…



  • Various scraps of worsted-weight yarn (which is like T-shirt yarn for me – you could use T-shirt yarn and make a big rug, instead of one for a doll)
  • I (5.50 MM)) crochet hook (or use a Q-16 MM with the T-shirt yarn!)
  • Yarn needle & scissors

The Basic Pattern

Rnd 1: Ch 7, sc in 2nd ch from hk and in next 4 ch, 3 sc in last ch. Turn to work on other side of foundation ch, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in last st.

Rnd 2: Do not join, just continue in a spiral amigurumi-style. 2sc, sc in next 4 sts, 2sc in next 3 sts, sc 4, 2sc in last 2 sts.

Rnd 3: *Sc, 2sc*, sc 4, rep from * to * 3x, sc 4, rep from * to * 2x.

Rnd 4: *Sc 2, 2sc*, sc 4, rep from * to * 3x, sc 4, rep from * to * 2x.

You can probably see the pattern emerging: just up the number of stitches between increases. The next round would be *sc 3, 2sc*, the next would be *sc 4, 2sc*, and so on. You can change colors whenever you want, or whenever you run out of yarn – I had a lot of fun with this! (I decided mine looked better with the wrong side facing up – it had more texture and laid flatter. But you can choose whichever!)


Another bonus with the wrong side facing up is that the stitches look like pi – ππππ. :)

Hope you enjoyed this pattern! It was great talking to you…and I’ll see you again in a bit. :) There will be a post every Monday until Cogaroo gets back, so stay tuned!

A Blogging Break & Introducing Rapunzel

Hi there!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I will be on vacation from July 25 until August 13. I’m going to the same place I did last summer (click below to visit their website)…

Canoe Island French Camp!

I will NOT be answering emails or comments because there’s a no-electronics rule – yes, that’s three weeks without internet! So if you have any pressing concerns, please mention them before Saturday.

I’m not going to totally desert you for three weeks, though – I’ve found a lovely guest blogger who has agreed to do a few posts. May I introduce you to the wonderful…

✿ Rapunzel ✿



Hi! I’m Rapunzel.

Cogaroo asked if I’d be interested in a summer job guest-posting for her blog, and I said yes! I’ve always been fascinated with blogging so I’m really excited about this opportunity.

A little bit about me: I’m an eighteen-year-old crocheted doll, who is also a crocheter! I enjoy just about every craft, like crochet, knitting, weaving, scrapbooking, and candlestick making. I also enjoy writing and reading, and now, blogging!

I’ll be posting every week or so until Cogaroo returns…I hope you enjoy reading my posts! :)

My first post will be on Saturday – see you then.

Here's a selfie of me!

Here’s a selfie of me!

Thank you, Rapunzel!

She will NOT be replying to your comments, though – I’ll help her do that when I come back. :) I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

So, I will be signing off on Saturday for a few weeks on an island in the sun. ;) I hope you all have a lovely rest of July!

Peace, love, and pogo sticks,
Cogaroo <3
