Monster Square 6

c2c Monster Blanket Square #6 of 9

The Monster Blanket is an idea I’ve had rolling around my mind for over a year, and finally got around to putting on paper to share with all of you.  I will be releasing 1 square every Friday – each featuring a different monster. The end result will be 9 squares that can then be assembled into an adorable blanket.

Another Friday, another Monster!!  Sorry I missed last Friday!  Those of you that follow my stories on instagram know that I am in the middle of a massive home remodel, and it’s gotten quite busy and chaotic at my house these last couple weeks.   There are only 3 monsters left, and I will do my best to stay on track.

Finishing Details:

I added a little white stitching to each pupil to give a little sparkle to the eyes.

The antennae were stitched on using a surface stitch – a really great tutorial for that by The Crochet Crowd exists here – Click to watch!

This time, for the mouth, I added a little side smile using black yarn and some very basic stitching.  Here’s a close up of that detail – though it was really hard to photograph the black yarn.
