Dr. Seuss Crochet Characters – Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz

I’d like to thank Cris Humphres-Bayse for the AMAZING squares she has created and shared in the group files.

I was lucky enough to have her show me the new character she was working on and I completely fell in love with it! I had been trying to create that same character myself but I couldn’t  quite get the dimensions down for the ZIZZER ZAZZER ZUZZ.

ZIZZER ZAZZER ZUZZ

I asked if I could play around with her design and came up with the one you see before you.

With her permission I am posting it here! I can’t wait to start working on this one myself!

The colors she used are all Caron Simply Soft: Soft Pink: hand, tongue and body, fushia and watermelon: hair

Square # 9: Wocket

​​The last square to the Dr. Seuss Crochet Along is The Wocket. I originally designed him with his eyes closed just like the book, but when it came time for me to crochet him I decided to have his eyes open.  
It took me a while to figure out what color yarn to use for him because  I didn’t want him to come out with the same colors as the Grinch.
I went to a few different stores looking for the color yarn that would match the one in my head. After all the searching I placed all the green yarn on my bed, I removed the ones that were used for the Grinch, and decided on the ones you see now!

I am super happy with the results! This took me FOR EVER!!! It had TONS AND TONS of color changes and I was only able to work on him for an hour during my lunch. I hope that you like the results as much as I do!

The Graph for The Wocket is 31×30 squares. I made mine in a HDC stitch using an I hook.

The colors I used for this square are Caron Simply Soft: N= White   L= Black   P= Soft Grey Heather   H= Pistachio   F= Sunshine   G= Pumpkin   M= Chocholate   J= Heartland Joshua Tree *= Purple

I’m also adding the Graph with his eyes closed in case you wanted to see it.closed

As previously mentioned… The  pattern will need to be decoded. Each character represents a block and a color. Odd rows are read from Left to Right and Even rows are read from Right to Left on the pattern. Please decode your pattern before you start crocheting so that you have an accurate pattern.​All the patterns in this Crochet Along have TONS of color changes.

​Take your time when you are making them and refer to your graph as often as possible so that you know you are not making mistakes.  If the crocheted piece you are working on does not look like the area of the graph you are in it is possible you may have missed something…

Square #8: The Cat in the Hat

Hi Everyone!

The next square in the Dr. Seuss Crochet Along (I just realized I’ve been spelling it completely wrong all this time. lol) is the Cat in the Hat.

13062835_1031371846940272_280774956_o

I took a break from weaving in the ends because I felt like I’ve been crocheting this for what seems to be an eternity and I have not finished anything! Yes, I have a bunch of beautiful squares but there still isn’t a completed project and I was starting to feel a bit burnt out! I will show off what I worked on while I took that little break! I am so in love with it! But back to this Crochet Along!

When I design these 30×31 squares I do not take existing images and just turn them into graphs… I change the color of each square to make the lines and curves that you see, the same as if you were to take graph paper and color in the squares. The only difference is that I can zoom in and out of excel!

I had a serious issue to deal with when I was designing this square because the Cat is white, the brim on his hat is white and I didn’t want the details to get lost! I created various options and this is the final product! I’m very happy with the way he turned out!

After crocheting so many squares I’ve learned a few tricks that made crocheting this one a bit easier for me but when it came time to weave in the ends I had to make sure those details that I tried so hard to keep while designing it were not lost in the crochet square especially with the ear! I am super happy with him and I hope you like him as much as I do too!

Square #7: I am Sam

2016-03-29 13.01.00_wmHere is the next square in the Dr. Seuss Crochet a Long!!  I am completely in LOVE with the finished results!!!

There was a bit of work that needed to be done in order to connect the squares that were separated while crocheting him but it was well worth the extra time.

I’m really excited to see how these are turning out and can’t wait to start on the next one!

As I  mentioned before the white yarn from Caron Simply Soft is a bit thin and adding the extra hdc to each block really evened out my finished square!

FYI: The smaller square in the picture below is how I originally designed Sam… When I changed the size of the squares I was able to add a few more details to him. The red in that square is Harvest red from Caron Simply Soft and it is COMPLETELY  BEAUTIFUL. I decided not to use it this time because the color bled A LOT when I washed it and even thought it didn’t stain the white in that square I decided not to use it! Just in case.

Square #6: The Grinch

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! I know I did!!! I was able to finish crocheting my Grinch, weave in the ends and even had a little time to type this up!!20160322_121712_wm

Who doesn’t love The Grinch??? I originally made him as a 25×25  graph when I was doing the Christmas CAL from Repeatcrafterme.com and I fell in love with how amazing he turned out!!! I wondered if I could make a few more characters and create a blanket out of Dr. Suess characters. I really enjoyed seeing everyone share their version of the Christmas CAL and I thought it would be so much fun do one as well and see the changes people would make! IMG_20150825_063045_wm

I’m so glad I did, even though I’ve never done anything like this, I work full time, and have a little munchkin that doesn’t let me crochet when I’m home!

I made a few changes to that pattern so that I cold include him in this CAL! I love the way he came out!

I’ve been amazed to see the same characters being made using different stitches and colors! I’m in awe every time I these being shared in the group! There are soo many different stitches, I can’t seem to find a favorite!
