This is my original pattern to crochet yourself an Adorable Monster.
You can use mohair-type yarn to make a lovely furry little guy, maybe an Adorable Snow Monster (the smaller, cuter relative of the Abominable Snowman), or a Flaming Adorable Fire Monster.
Or use ordinary yarn to make a smooth one, like my Tree Monster and Rainbow Monster, with their great big hands and fuzzy ruffs around their faces.
The pattern is quite straightforward and suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters, with all the information on how to make both types of monster. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi. They are written using US crochet terms, and the list of abbreviations includes the UK alternatives. The pattern is a downloadable PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to open it. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making it.
To make it you will need:
Yarn for the body: 50g mohair mix or similar type of yarn, double knitting weight.
- alternatively, 50g yarn, double knitting weight.
25g yarn, double knitting weight, for face, hands and feet.
Small amount of black yarn to embroider mouth.
Wire pet brush (slicker).
1 pair of 13.5mm safety eyes
3.5mm hook (US E hook).
Finished size: approximately 6” tall.
