The blog title where this beauty was found reads: “Crochet, Comfortable & Practical for Girls”. Where to begin exactly? Yikes. Not sure how comfortable or practical this design would be given the lumps and bumps the tampons would create under a pair of pants or skirt but then again, who would notice, right? Insert sarcastic smirk here.
Thank you to one of our faithful readers for sending this submission in – it does appear on a blog from Hungary so perhaps the translation isn’t that great with Google Translate but I’m not so sure there’s an excuse for this one.
If you’re wondering when you should step away from the crochet hook, remember this old saying “too much of a good thing” and when you feel yourself slipping over into the abyss of overkill, it is definitely time to put down the crochet hook.
And to think these purse designs were created by a “team” and not one of them thought “oh hey, that’s just pushing the gaudy envelope, maybe we should stop”.
However, like good little designing minions for a yarn brand label, they are just making sure we all buy that extra skein of yarn to embellish our asses off.
ETA: For those of you with an astute eye (thank you Brandy!) the second purse is indeed knitted and that was entirely my oversight…my bad! I’ll leave it up there as it’s equally horrendous.
How to get hosed? Buy $500 socks. Who commands such a price? An artist named Rodarte who I have no idea who they are but I digress…behold the holey socks…yes, I know it’s probably art but wow.
Holey socks? $500! Yuck response? Priceless!
When I saw this I laughed so hard…it looks like the whole muppet crew exploded on her shoulder! The atrocity and the horror of it…oh my! Fun fur never gets old does it? Maybe if Lion Brand actually had some decent yarns their patterns wouldn’t be so bloody hideous.
Do you get the feeling this guy likes recording and watching himself on video? Put down the coffee before watching…snort bubbles may ensue.
Now granted this was 1967 but the expression on the model’s face is priceless so a little crochet pattern nostalgia was in order. She’s sure to scare the little kids off the bunny hill if she wore that crazy cap while skiing.
Thanks to Brianna, one of our readers, for sending this one in…we appreciated the look back in time however frightening it was!
I saw this gem while searching for a toy pattern on Lion Brand’s website.
i gasped as I saw this:
OMG. it’s a hideous crochet hat! Doesn’t it look crazy??? my first thought was….The Borg Queen
- The Borg Queen
I guess the simliarities really lie in the facial expression. But can’t you see some nut crocheting this hat so the Borg Queen can keep her slimy bald head warm? hahahaha
If you really want that hat pattern…here it is.
I’m unspeakably relieved that despite a significant amount of searching I couldnt find Christmas Crocheted Fug.
I looked. I found some really darling pieces that made me wish I had more time in my life but.. hey..
What I did find.. and it produced a number of mixed reactions when I saw it, was this:
(get this.. it’s a bargain at 3,000 pounds!!)
It’s a Hat. It may LOOK like a sea anemone or the hyperbolic crochet reef.. but it’s a hat. For 3,000 pounds???
It looks vaguely biological.
And if anyone feels that they could make this and give it to their significant other/partner/sweetie/husband (darling or otherwise) and not have it surreptitiously fed to the dog/cat/budgie, please give it a go, and send the photos!
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a fugfree (in every way!) New Year!
Does the video speak for itself? Thought so.
Thanks to one of our readers for sending this one in –
please don’t poke your eyes out while watching it.
P.S.: A couple of comments already asking if this is real –
seems to be! There are more videos of more hats where
this came from AND a custom hat will run you $1,000 US!
“A crocheted Bonsai bag is adorned with bobbles galore” –
quoted directly from the site. Bobbles galore…ya,
that’s exactly what this looks like.
Thanks to one of our readers for sending this one in!
This looks like torture not luxury –
for both the wearer and the crocheter.
Love the “what I’m wearing sucks”
smirk on the model’s face too.
Who exactly would wear this bright red thing on the front?
Doesn’t it look a bit like a doily of some kind? None of
the other designs are particularly appealing either.
This is the kind of stuff that gives crochet a bad name.
Just because you get to see all
sides of the fug (wait for it to rotate)
and because we haven’t chosen anything
off “Amazing Crochet” for awhile.
They never seem to let us down
everytime we visit for a submission.
This one just makes me giggle – not sure if
it’s the model’s expression or the hat –
they both take the proverbial cake.
No matter how you dress the model, the oversized
granny square won’t be “funky” or “urban chic“.
