Amigurumi: Design Your Own Monster »
InstructionsI used the skills covered in the course and a combination of patterns from the design your own monster course and the woodland creatures course.
The head, body and limbs are a larger version of the raccoon pattern from woodland creatures, and the other parts were made up on the fly using shapes covered in the design your own monster course.
Type of item: Toy
3.5 balls patons jet in green, small amounts of cream (patons jet) and charcoal (random aran weight), 5mm hook, stuffing
What was your inspiration?
I am reading a novel about dragons at the moment and I decided I'd like to make one for my daughter.
What are you most proud of?
While I used a pattern for the main parts all the rest was trial and error. I am proud of how it turned out, and how closely it resembles my original sketch (but better!).
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You don't have to have it all worked out before you start. Once you have a rough idea then just jump in and work out the rest as you go. Even if you end up re-doing or throwing parts out it's not a lot of time or yarn wasted.
