Okay, so since I'm not sure about selling my emotes, I thought I'd at least make the pattern(s) available.

This PDF has the patterns for 8 of the emotes I've done so far:
:D :love: :giggle: :XD: :pissed: :O :| :unimpressed:

For the two I haven't included, I can't remember the patterns of the facial parts (that's what I get for not writing them down right away :XD:).

More emoticon crochet patterns:




EDIT:
Whoops, noticed a little mistake in my wording for the assembly of :|. Fixed it. And while I was on it, I improved the base pattern at the first 2 rows and the last.
Nothing too wild, the old patterns work just as well. ;)

EDIT 2:
You guys are crazy, you know that? Another DD? :faint:
Happy to know they're so well received, though. Hope you enjoy. :)
And many, many thanks. :hug:

Thanks for the patterns :) it's a cool idea!! I just didn't understand why you use correction stitches... - beginner's question? -

Hey, sorry for the late reply... RL is kinda preventing me from going through my inbox daily... :XD:

Correction stitches are just something I do. I'm not sure if it is common for other crocheters...

Why do I use them?
Because when you crochet in spirals, the beginning of the round slants to the side, so the more rounds you do, the earlier the round seems to start. If you do rather complicated patterns that needs certain increases/decreases/etc. at certain places, without the correction stitches the end product would look twisted. Also, due to the moving start of the round, if the piece you crochet is long and narrow, at some point you'll be back at the beginning with 1 round less than the pattern stated.
With my emotes, that's not really a problem, because there are no specials in a simple ball. And the one round you might loose shouldn't make the ball noticably flatter. But for me it's just so normal to use those correction stitches that I use them with all my creations.

Does this help?

Kein Problem. :D

Was genau verstehst du nicht? Die Abkürzungen? Die Übersetzungen? Würde dir die deutsche Variante mehr bringen?
Im Grunde wird das meiste in festen Maschen gehäkelt. Für den Ball an sich brauchst du nur zu wissen, wie man Maschen zu- und abnimmt.
Ansonsten kommt's noch drauf an welchen der Emotes du häkeln möchstest. Dann könnte ich evtl. spezifischere Tipps geben. :)

also den in lila mit den ärmchen^^
ich kann bisher nur eine grade linie häkeln mit normalen "stichen". den anfang vom rundhäkeln krieg ich gerade so hin. ja die abkürzungen sing schwierig.
wahrscheinlich wäre deutsch eine kleine hilfe^^
zunehmen wie 2 maschen in eine? das kann ich aber abnehmen nicht ^^"

Also:
zunehmen = 2 Maschen in 1, da hattest du recht. :)
abnehmen = [link] (ist ein englisches Video, aber es wird gut gezeigt. Einmal die "normale" Variante und einmal die unsichtbare, die ich für meine Puppen immer nutze)
Magic Ring = [link] (da meine Muster in Spiralen gearbeitet werden, schließt man die erste Runde nicht wie im Video mit einer Kettmasche, sondern macht gleich mit festen Maschen weiter)

Hilft das?

Wie gut kennst du dich mit den deutschen Abkürzungen in Häkelanleitungen aus? Ich nutze fM für feste Maschen, verd. für verdoppeln (2 in 1), zus. für zusammenhäkeln (also abnehmen). Kämst du damit klar?
Wenn ja, dann schick mir per Note deine Mailadresse und ich lass dir das deutsche Muster zukommen. :)

What brand of yarn did you used? I want to make the light green... Is going to be a gift for a friend..

I used Schachenmayr Catania, and I'm pretty sure the color for the light green one was #0260 (pale green).
I just love working with cotton yarn. :)

good luck with the little fellow. will you post pictures when he's finished? :)

7th row - Does "36sc + 3 sc" means 39 sc?
Reply
:iconjaney-in-a-bottle:
janey-in-a-bottle Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
no, that means the beginning of the round moves.
working in spirals, if you mark the beginning of a round, you'll notice it'll move back for about 1 stitch every 2 - 3 rounds. to even that out, you'll add correction stitches. in case of round 7 that means you crochet up to the end of the round and keep going for 3 stitches more. there are still only 36 stitches in the round, you just start the 8th round later.
does that help?
Reply
:iconmafon:
Mafon Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012
errrr... yep, i noticed a lil' offset, but thought it's o.k., cause it's spiral...

now, i'm gona stich "36 sc and than 3 more to close the row"? I can't find the difference between previous statement and "39 sc". And how there's 36 of 'em if there're 3 additional. I think, i'll check some webpages...

Again, thanks for reply.

janey-in-a-bottle Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
close the row? so you're not working in spirals? because if you do, you won't need to close them, you just keep going.
the 3 additional you'd work into the first 3 of the same round, which would be the first 3 of the next round, if you didn't crochet the correction stitches.

if it's still not clear enough, I can make a photo of the process over the weekend and show you. I'm working on a new project anyway and will need to do a ball for it. :)

so.... the mounth for that one ":D" (and "heart pieces") crochet separatly and than sewed on?
(i'm a total noob)
I thought there's some kinda oа trick to change thread...

I think i'll use your pattern to crochet something spherical....

yep, that's how I do it.
sure, you can just change color while crocheting the rounds, but I found that to be very unsatisfactory. the edges never get to be that clean, and at least with the eyes of :o, the resulting 3D effect is actually wanted. :)

and I'm glad you'll have some use for the base shape. it's adapted from patterns I found online and didn't really like the resulting shape of (or the fact that they involved sewing halves together).
