Mini Monster

Mini Monster is the perfect partner. She’s willing to tag along wherever you go, and is always eager to offer an extra set of hands to help hold your goodies… especially the sweet variety.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and  pictures to help you along the way. Mini Monster is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Mini Monster is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and is approximately 3 inches tall.  Be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!

Alternate way to begin:
chain 2, sc 6 times in 2nd chain from hook  {6 sts}

(inc, sc in next 2 sts) 2 times {8 sts}
(2 single crochets into a stitch, then single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches) – repeat that sequence a total of 2 times for a total of 8 stitches

(dec, sc in next 2 sts) 6 times {18 sts}
(join 2 single crochets into 1, and then single crochet in next 2 stitches) – repeat that sequence a total of 6 times for a total of 18 stitches

If a round states to work in the back loop only, go back to working through both loops after that Round, unless specified.
