Today is finally the day that you can make your very own Larry Monster. He’ll hold your stuff, and look awesome doing it. He’s a bit functional art, a bit monster cozy. Mine holds my remote controls in the living room, so I don’t have to worry where the kids or cats may have placed them… a place for everything. I love him.
Larry was designed to look like he was really hard to crochet. He’s not. An intermediate (come on… even an adventurous beginner, really) crocheter could easily manage this one. You do need to have the basic skills down to finish this crochet pattern. I’ve added a supplemental webpage to the crochet pattern to make it even easier. It includes helpful tutorials on the skills you will need, and extra photos that help explain the more difficult parts of the crochet pattern. You can do it. I know you can.
Here’s the important stuff…. The finished monster measures approximately 10 inches (25.4 cm) long X 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) wide.
- Skill Level:
- Intermediate crocheter through advanced stitcher
- Size H/8 (5 mm) crochet hook

You might be wondering what you could do with a Larry Monster. As stated above, you can hold your stuff, like remote controls. He also likes yarn, maybe small knick knacks that the kids have laying around, those handheld games and wires… Really, your imagination is the limit. He’s a really cool decoration, AND he’s functional.
