Henry Hugglemonster: FREE PATTERN!



A commission piece for a friend. There were no patterns for him that I could find, so I improvised!

Henry Hugglemonster is for sale in my Etsy shop.

Here is the pattern!:

Materials Needed:
F Hook
120 yards of worsted weight yarn in body color, I used Sugar'n Cream in Sunshine.
Small amount of blue and green
Small amount of white felt
Safety eyes
Red button
Two blue pompoms

Gauge is not important, just be sure to use a hook small enough to where the stuffing will not show.

When crocheting amigurumi, I always recommend using a Amigurumi Invisible Decrease, tutorial found here

Magic circle tutorial found here.

SC-single crochet
HDC-Half Double Crochet
Dec-Decrease, using the Invisible Decrease technique
Sl St-Slip Stitch
Ch-chain
St-Stitch

Cut two eye shapes out of white felt. Cut tiny slits in them where the safety eye should go. Insert the safety eye through the felt and through the head where the eye will go. Snap on the back to the eye. Repeat for the other eye. Hot glue the felt down to head. Stuff head firmly. Sew on the button for the nose, and then dab some hot glue on the back. This is not necessary but if you are going to give it to little ones, it's good to do.
