Here’s another crochet monster from Edward’s Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord. This one isn’t actually a monster, as you can see, but it still uses the same base, arms and legs pattern. The ears and tail are modified a little from the pattern and the eye patch, nose and paws were easily made up.
This is “Steve” which is named after Steve Burns for Blue’s Clues. (Hence the blue paw which is handy for leaving clues.) The idea came about after seeing these adorable Scrappy the Happy Puppy Slippers from One & Two Company. I only had a little blue so I did the ear first and was hoping I could get another arm but there was just enough for a print. … and a blue paw print for us means it’s gotta be a Blue’s Clue! So, this puppy’s name had to be Steve.
I have done the “required three” monsters and so now I can have creative freeform on any other monsters but my goal is to use up the extra yarn I have. This one, however, I went out and bought some brown and blue – so if that is a telling sign then I might not ever use up all the extra yarn. LOL
