Cauli

Here’s my next monster from the Edward’s Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord pattern book. This one was my own idea. I wanted try introducing a color gradually, change colors on the toes for claws, and finally tackle those elusive spots. 

This monster I’m calling “Cauli” because the top head part looks like a head of cauliflower.  I thought the slow addition of color was a great transition and I wish I would have started it sooner, maybe 2 rows earlier on the head, 8 rows earlier on the body and 4 rows earlier on the hands.  The toes weren’t as bad as I thought they would be and the color change turned out to be a breeze.

From this view point you can see the color change nicely on the head. The spots on the back were difficult to learn but once I figured it out, were easy to add in. I wish TOFT would have had a video of that stitch because I felt their book was missing at list one more picture on it.  But my Mum came to the rescue and hunkered down to figure it out for me.

My only regret is I wish the legs were longer but the kids are enjoying this one so that’s all that really matters.
