Monster Square 7

c2c Monster Blanket Square #7 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 weekend – each featuring a different monster. The end result will be 9 squares that can then be assembled into an adorable blanket.

Another weekend, another Monster!!   Life is crazy, but I am having too much fun keeping this project going – the hardest part is deciding what color to make each monster.  The struggle is real.

 

Download is for the graph only.  This project assumes you know how to crochet in the C2C (corner to corner) style.  If not, learn how via this great tutorial.

Instructions below are for the appliqué pieces you will need to make to complete this square!

-Yarn:  You will need an assortment of worsted weight yarn colors to complete this project.  The background color I used is Caron One Pound – Robins Egg.

Finishing Details:

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

For this Monster’s mouth, I added a little smile in black yarn using a surface stitch.  To learn more about that check out a really great tutorial by The Crochet Crowd here – Click to watch!

I attached the bow at his neck, to make it look like a little bow tie – but you could easily attach to the head for a different look all together!

Come back next week for Monster #8 – we are getting closer and closer to being able to assemble this monstrosity (pun intended.)
