This was kind of inevitable, because I didn’t follow through on my original plan for my shark hats. Hats? Yes, hats… as in more than one shark hat crochet pattern. The entire things started with this little sketch on the
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
There is something so completely satisfying about seeing what seemed like a potentially awesome idea turn into a thing that you can hold in your hands… or in this case, hang in your house.

Let’s start with the story about how I wasted the better part of last year, jumping around to different creative ideas. Then let’s talk about how I tried to do too many things at once, resulting in me not reaching any of my crocheting goals. That’s a great story.
Yes! You can now make your own Grimeclaw Monster doll. I’m so excited for all of you. This has been a labor of love that has gone on for months. I’m really excited to see it all come together. Today I’m releasing just the crochet pattern. The original plan was to have the crochet pattern and the crochet pattern kit release on the same day… like today.

The crochet pattern kit gets its own little PRE-SALE, and you get to save $2 by ordering early.
