That being said, I'm taking a shine to these monsters that are part of a new 17 crochet project booklet from Sugar 'N Cream. The experienced crocheter could probably make these without a pattern using a little guess and test, but they're still worth looking at for the inspiration. The book is retailing for $3.95 here in Canada and there are also two other monster patterns in the book that you can see in the link above.
Does anyone else think Monsters Inc. when they see this picture?
Each year I try to contribute a couple of amigurumis to the Softies For Mirabel Campaign. One thing organizer Pip has told me in the past is that there's often a shortage of toys that really grab the boys' attention. So that's the second reason I thought these were worth sharing. Made in the right colours, I'm fairly certain these would appeal to many young boys. The more eyes and tentacles the better, right?
