Crochet sculptures of the day

I crochet because I need this little illusion of order in the life of mess and entropy. Every time I manage to map an object – let it be giraffes or kittens – and change it into crochet algorithms I feel that I have a bit of the creator’s power over my existence.

(And then my little son comes and throw laundry out of the basket and everything becomes messy again.)

I am not yet skilled enough to make crochet-mapping of really complicated objects, but I love to watch others artists’ attempts.

So now have a look at Yulia Ustinova‘s works and don’t forget to pick your jaws up from the floor before you leave:

Rub-My-Belly Kittens

I have just published Rub-My-Belly Kitten Amigurumi Crochet Pattern, which means that I have a house full of cute crocheted cats that I should now find and store in one place.

It takes three or four attempts for me to make a pattern – Mr Prototype (white one), made as you go, Mr Big Mistake (not shown on the picture), Mr It Begins To Look Like A Cat (beige one) and Mr Experiment (BW kitten).
