Adorable Monster Amigurumi
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. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi. The pattern will be sent to you as a PDF file (you will need Adobe acrobat to open it) within 24 hours in most cases and 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
I have now designed a larger (9” tall) version of this pattern, to make a non-fuzzy Yeti or Bigfoot. It also comes with a slightly tweaked version of this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/yeti-and-bigfoot-...
