Meet Vikram the velutinous monster! In case you were wondering, velutinous means covered in short, dense hair, in case you were wondering. He is very snuggly, very fuzzy, and a wonderful warm friend. I normally have you just pick your yarn to knit one of my patterns but as soon as I saw Caribou from Hikoo yarns I knew I needed to make a monster knitting pattern from it! This yarn is super cool and totally makes this monster.

This knitting pattern from Danger Crafts will show you how to knit this fuzzy little monster. Vikram has a very fuzzy body, arms, antennas, and feet, and fun stripey legs. Fuzzy and stripey, exactly the things that make a monster irresistible! If you don't want to use the Caribou yarn, this guy can easily be knit up by holding eyelash yarn together with worsted weight (or any weight really) as well. This pattern is guaranteed to have your friends and family putting in requests for monster knits once they've seen your first one!

More Info:

Skill Level: Intermediate (I would recommend this pattern for beginning knitters that are comfortable knitting in the round or who want a bit of a challenge. I have rated it "intermediate" because according to the Craft Council skill level guidelines, anything knitted in the round is intermediate.)

Skills used: Basic knit and purl stitches, increases, decreases, knitting in the round, i-cord, knitting stitches in waste and removing it later to expose live stitches, and basic sewing skills.
This pattern is written using Magic Loop Method for knitting in the round. See my Frequent Questions page for more info on dpn's vs Magic Loop:

Pattern Format: Instant download Adobe .pdf file

A: 150 Yards (2 Skeins) Caribou by Hikoo (100% Nylon, 85m/50g per skein)
You can also use 150 yards of worsted weight yarn held together with 150 yards of eyelash yarn for A
B: 50 Yards Worsted Weight Yarn in Main Contrast Color
C: 40 yards Worsted Weight Yarn in Second Contrast Color
You can also knit this pattern with any weight yarn held together with eyelash yarn. Just use needles 2-3 sizes smaller than recommended for the yarn to make a finished fabric the stuffing wont show through.

Gauge: No need to check gauge! Just make sure your finished fabric is tight enough that the stuffing once show through.

I recommend a 40” circular needle (for Magic Loop Method) in US Size 5 (3.75mm)
1 set US Size 5 (3.75mm) double pointed needles (for I-Cord and top of antenna)
You can also use the circular needle for i-cord, it just tends to be a bit cumbersome

If you are knitting the pattern with a different weight of yarn held together with an eyelash yarn pick a needle size 2-3 sizes smaller than recommended for that yarn.

Notions: Waste yarn for holding live stitches, scissors, tapestry needle, stuffing, stitch marker for marking beginning of the round, row counter (optional, but very helpful), straight pins for making up (optional), sew on googly eyes (see last page of pattern for source) or safety eyes.

This 5 page pattern is very clearly written, and I offer many in-depth tutorials on the techniques used in it on my blog to keep you from feeling confused while knitting: Plus you can get email help from me in case you get stumped. I also have a Frequent Questions page for instant pattern help: Plus, there is lots of fun stuff in the pattern, like a little story about Vikram and tons of great finished monster pictures.

This is my third pattern from Dangercrafts and it is amazing, just like the others. The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow. Everyone loves these monsters. I make heaps of them. They make great gifts and use up leftovers and stash.
