EDIT! Just wrote out a long photo-tutorial on my blog so you've no excuse now not to learn amigurumi if you've been wanting to! Cheesy

I made these for a class I'm going to be teaching for people who have never crocheted before, so I had to make them super easy, but still cute and customizable.  Hopefully they'll be able to finish the project while I'm with them Smiley  They're made out of 10 different kinds of yarn, but my favorite to work with was the Cascade 220 wool.  I'm getting spoiled now, because if I'm going to be at the yarn store teaching there's no telling how many colors of nice yarn I'm going to "need."  !

I'm going to post a pattern on my blog I think, but is pretty simple.  Start with a ring, sc 6, then increase by 6 stitches per row until you're at 24, then single crochet 9 rows of 24 st.  Fasten off, then make a circle for the bottom that goes 6 st to 24 st, increasing 6 st per row.  Insert eyes, stuff, sew together, then make whatever kind of funny monster face you want Smiley  That's the tutorial in a nutshell!

OH and if you're anywhere near Austin, these are at Knitting Nest, along with MJ, Pee-Wee, and DJ Lance!  I hope a little kid hasn't walked off with any of these!  Shocked

What a cute little army of monsters! A few remind me of my pacman days and those little ghosts. I am inspired! Love that each are unique too.

Thanks! Yes, perfect for scraps and very quick!  The whites of the eyes are all felt, the centers are all little plastic safety eyes, 6mm and 10mm.  I buy big packs on Etsy!

Haha my little boy said the same exact thing!  I should make them so where you could turn them inside out and the inside would be blue with that frowny face.  That would actually be pretty cool!  Ahhhh there's not enough hours in a day!!!

Those on the far end have optional feet Smiley

The Knitting Nest? Is that the little shop off Slaughter near I-35? Across the street from a Sonic I think?

I'm in MI now for school, but I'm from Cedar Park. I *think* I remember seeing that shop visiting my family further south. I'll have to stop in when I'm back in TX. ^.^

That's the one!  Except they JUST moved right around the corner to a new store on Congress just off Slaughter.  Literally right around the corner, and its bigger.  I think they've only been there for a couple of weeks.  Definitely stop in there!  Stacy, the owner is so sweet!  They've done a lot of cool stuff, like flying in Ravelry people, some knitting celebs, and hey, they're letting me teach classes!  Cheesy
