Not every child seeks out cutesy dolls or adorable stuffed animals as their lovies. Many children love to take a walk on the “wild side”, and when they do, always nice to have a lovable monster to accompany them. Below are knit patterns for creating friends for your own favorite wee monster. Most of these patterns need to be purchased, but there are a couple that are free. Also, at the bottom of the page are links to a few books with adorable knit monsters. Enjoy!
And, of course next week I will share a bunch of crocheted monsters. Fair is fair, right?
