Meet Figment the Monster (“Figgy” for short)! Figment is an adorable snuggly monster, who can be both tiny for portability or giant for extra big hugs. Either way, he’s sure to help keep the nightmares at bay.

Instructions are included in the pattern for making both the original size and a giant version. The pattern is essentially the same for both (except for a couple of really minor embellishment details). Exact dimensions will vary depending on how tightly you crochet and which yarns you use, but the smaller monster is about 8” tall and the larger monster is about 15” tall. But gauge isn’t crucial for this project, so you can play around with different hooks and yarns to make different sizes (just make sure your stitches are tight enough to keep the stuffing in).

To make the smaller size monster, you’ll need 1 skein of worsted weight (4) yarn in the main body color and small amounts of worsted weight yarn in accent colors. I made mine with a size E (3.5mm) crochet hook and 10mm safety eyes.

​The larger monster was made with 3 skeins of super bulky (6) yarn in the main body color and less than 1 skein of super bulky yarn in accent colors. I used a size J (6.0mm) crochet hook and 15mm safety eyes. You will also need a fiberfill stuffing and a tapestry needle for stitching on pieces for both sizes and I would recommend using a stitch marker.

I would recommend this for intermediate level crocheters and above, who are familiar with techniques such as the magic circle and surface crochet. A bonus photo-tutorial for creating invisible decrease stitches is included as part of the pattern.

The PDF for the pattern includes step by step photos to help you as you create your monster. And it also comes with an image-free printable version for your convenience.

A special thank you to my wonderful pattern testers, Lisa, Jenyse, and Mariette, for their invaluable feedback! The pattern should be easy to follow, but if you ever find you have questions, feel free to contact me and I’d be happy to help
