This is a sweet monster which is not at all that scary for a child who wants a monster but you don't want to make one too scary. Great colours.

I especially love its unmatched googly eyes and floppy ears. I think the wool being striped is a good idea. I will try to do this one in a striped yarn too. Its too hard matching stripes when crocheting this way in the round though easy as you don't really have to count rounds. Though I was thinking on that and we could put a patch pocket heart or something over the area we don't like where the stripes don't quite come together.

That is a great idea! If we did that, it could also double as a tooth fairy pillow.
