I can never get enough of Rebecca Danger monsters and these three little rascals have been mischeviously jumping around in my project queue, distracting me from other projects. They will be delivered via holiday stocking to three special little boys later this year.
Pattern: Harold the Houseplant Monster
Yarn: Mirasol Hacho DK – found these colorful skeins on sale at my local Tuesday Morning Store last year for $4.00 per skein!
Knit magic loop with 3.5 mm (US 4) circular needles.
A note about magic loop: I avoided learning this method for over a year – it seemed so difficult! Let me tell you – it’s actually amazingly easy to do. Much easier to learn than dpn knitting. It made my life easier in many ways – including saving money on purchasing various sizes of those 16″ circular needles needed for hats. It’s so worth the hour or so it takes to learn. Knitting help.com has a helpful video along with tips for the best circulars to use. My advice? Go for it!
My copy of The Big Book of Knitted Monsters is flagged with all the other little cuties who want to join our family next. Dot the Dress Up Monster is creating her share of attention getting drama, no doubt because she’s so anxious to meet my youngest Granddaughter. I’ve decided it’s really best that I close the book and tuck it safely out of sight until I finish the rest of my holiday knitting.
I let these three little rascals out for the Halloween festivities at our house, but don’t tell those three little boys they’re waiting to meet!
