My monster doll finally got himself some fancy arms! I had to go into my project bag and find the arms that I made him from when I first started this crochet pattern. If you’ve been crocheting along through Patreon, you might have to do the same thing. The time lost looking for his arms was totally worth it. Look how regal and might he looks with his new frilly underarms now that his arms are sewn onto his body. Frickin’ cool.
The delay here was completely ridiculous. School ended not even 2 weeks ago, and it completely threw me off my schedule. To be fair… this update should make up for the wait. I started out trying to make some cool
It’s week #3, and this guy is so freakin’ cool. We’re adding the eyelids, nose, teeth, and lips this week. It makes such a difference in the doll once they have a face. This part is going to take a little patience, but it’ll all be worth seeing your monster doll come to life as you’re stitching.
I was going to finish this doll’s eyelids, teeth, and mouth for this week; the body being left open was really bothering me. We’ll get to the face details next week. I promise. The legs/bottom area was giving me a
This doll was originally going to be something completely different. I’m not sure what happened between the head and upper body, but it’s not going in the direction I had originally started. I should probably get back to sketching out
Today is the day! The free crochet pattern download is finally finished, and I love him to pieces. He turned out a little harder than I was planning, but in going back through the pattern, I have reworded a few things from
This was a great little project. I’m happy to have a new free crochet pattern available, and designing it slowly as a crochet-a-long was a treat. It’s like I ended up with this neat pattern, while feeling like I didn’t really do that much work to get it. Once this week’s work is through, you’ll have your very own Knotty Knucklehead. These are very huggable monster dolls, and I will be adding this original (along with cool variations) to the shop.
Aside from eventually having to get ready for school, my schedule is wide open for the next couple of weeks. I’ve been waiting for this time for a few months now. I have so much good crochet fun going on in the background. This “downtime” really will help me pull it all together. Knotty Knucklehead turns into a doll today, and all we have left are the eyeballs… which may take another 2 weeks. Stay tuned for all the great stitching.
Sorry about being a day late this week. My pug had surgery, and I had to take care of picking him up yesterday. I decided to keep these feet more on the simple side. I was thinking about adding a little applique to Knotty Knucklehead’s body later, but I have a feeling I’m going to have to see him/her stuffed before I can make that call. These feet work up really quick. I was a little nervous, because I was playing yarn roulette (when you’re not sure if you have enough yarn or not) with that second foot. I made it though! Woot!
