Uh oh!

Something hungry's stirring at the bottom of the garden...square-bellied monsters!

These ravening beasts have tremendous appetites and can pack lots of goodies in their big, square tummies - including your most secret possessions.

Why not knit up a pack to infest your home - and those of your family and friends!

The ButterflyLove pdf Square-Bellied Monsters knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions and handy hints along the way. You can also choose between two eye styles (googly or beady) and whether to have a poseable mouth.

It only involves knitting flat and this pattern is suitable for a keen beginner/intermediate knitter.

You can also contact me at any point if you need technical advice or have any other queries.
