I recieved a request on Etsy to make Captain Flint Season 1-2 and I love him! He’s a lot better than my previous Flint, especially with his longer coat and longer hair.
I also really love his cute little ponytail! I tend to get worried about cutting the hair too short but in this case it turned out well. I also think his beard is a lot better than before – i crocheted this one compared to sewing a beard straight on to the head.
My DREAM crochet goals are to crochet Max and Eleanor, but they seem very difficult at the moment with the plans I have for them. Also I have yet to learn how to permanently keep curly hair, it seems to straighten out after a few hours. I’ll find out how to do it though, i’m still completely in love with this show and am determined to make the whole gang 🙂
Captain Flint! To be honest, this was one of the most difficult projects so far. I’d love to know what you think. One of the hardest decisions was picking hair colour! I stuck with brown hair and a red beard, but I’d also love to make Season 1 Flint with his little ponytail…
I also would like to make his jacket longer next time. Again, this is one of my most tricky projects but i hope you like it and he looks somewhat similar!
I’m in the middle of relocating but once i’ve settled in my new home I will add him to Etsy 🙂
I’m sorry i’ve been absent! I have finished university and am starting to adjust to the real world of jobs and adulthood. It’s hard when you have no idea what you want to do, but I won’t go into that!
Last year I became a HUGE fan of Black Sails and the character Anne Bonny. I love her strength and independence, her love for Jack and Max, her fighting skills and her way with words 😉
So it was inevitable that I would crochet my favourite character. It took a few tries as i’m not used to jackets, should I make them removable or are they attached to the body? I finally created something i’m really proud of and I hope you like it too.
It’s currently on my store CrochetWithPride.etsy.com , and I can’t wait to add the rest of the Black Sails characters!
