Wanna make a monster? * UPDATE to this pattern!

Wanna make a monster?

See below! * Time for another tutorial! I made this lineup of baby monsters for my Basic Amigurumi class at The Knitting Nest. I think they're a pretty good beginner project because it teaches how to start crochet in the round, how to single crochet, how to increase, and basic construction and customization of amigurumi. Baby Monster's Guide to Basic Amigurumi You'll need the following stuff: Small amount of worsted weight yarnSize E Crochet hook (or your favorite)Plastic safety eyes (I used 6 mm, but you can use whatever makes your monster happy!) Head/Body: Begin by making a ring with your yarn as shown. Insert the hook into the front of the ring and hook your working yarn (the yarn coming from the the ball) with the hook. Wrap the working yarn around the hook from behind and pull through the loop on your hook. You will now single crochet six stitches into the ring. To make the circle grow, you will increase by crocheting two times into each stitch.

I made mine for a party, but I think they would look cute hanging in a little girl's room too. I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did. Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help! Xoxo Charla 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Wee Girl. I haven’t been feeling well lately and I’ve been confined to the house.

Wee Girl

As cabin fever was really setting in, I decided to do something crafty. Brandon’s been teasing me because it is on the whimsical side, which I usually hate. The whimsy factor gets worse too. This project was based on a chidrens’ craft project… for making flower fairies. You’re supposed to make little wire bodies and then take apart fake flowers to make the clothing. I actually made two heads (wooden beads, paint, and more embroidery thread) because I didn’t like the way the first one turned out.

I gave her a little paper flower to hold, glued her head on, and she was finished. She’s just under 3″ tall, so my Wee Girl is indeed very wee. What do you think? Stuffed Monsters mix and match designs. How to Make a Monster Pillow, Plushie and/or Softie... Plus: Basic sewing tips.
