    Could always add beading or a central gem to add sparkle and distract from the shape, but I like the pattern.

    Thank you for this, valleyviolet!! I think by changing the hook and yarn size, a pattern like this would work for dolls too.

    Biscuitbear.. is that crochet thread you used for the shoe? If so, may I ask what size is it? I've done some testing with embroidery thread, but what your using looks more in scale.

    ETA: Here is what I've made so far... don't laugh!




    This is with 2mm hook and embroidery thead. I need to go much smaller!

    Hi Aneemal,

    It's possible to buy crochet hooks as small as .40mm! Could someone please pass the magnifying glass?

    Some of the DMC cottons, such as Perle or Broder Special, in the smallest sizes, could be used for tiny crochet projects.

    Oh merrijane, thanks! Please help me?! I'm getting confused about thread sizes. Are the larger numbers smaller in size? So #10, for example, is smaller than #8?

    Yes Aneemal, it's so confusing, but you're right the larger the number the narrower the thread size.

    Never stop dreaming, if you have a dream you have reason to live for. Don't let them die pursue them achieve them and find another to pursue.

    When I have sculpted my won dolls I find I often have to create the accessories in creative ways due to the issue of scale. For crocheted items it is quite possibel to use a plain sewing need to do tiny crochet. I recommend dulling the point on some sandpaper to avoid sticking it in yourself.
