I made a few knitted monsters for my wonderful partner in the IYP swap Smiley. I used Danger Craft patterns (http://www.etsy.com/shop/dangercrafts?ref=seller_info), Cascade 220 and size 5 needles for all of them.



I actually finished a pair of socks for this guy!


I used Cascade Quatro for this fella


Free pattern for this guy, "monster chunk", on ravelry... http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/monster-chunks


Thanks so much for looking. They were all really fun to make and I hope I can find an excuse to make more soon!

I don't usually care for knit and crochet characters, but I am going gaga over these monsters.  You did a great job!

Oh thanks, Striker! These are made using the magic loop method and I think that really helps keep everything even. No weird purl tension Smiley.

I appreciate everyone's comments!

Thank you for the pattern link.

Some time ago, a "little old lady" (you know, a stereotypical knitter) gave me two bagfuls of yarn ends. The yarn has added to my stash for a couple of years as no patterns have caught my eye or called to me. Until this one!
I'm not sure if I have enough of any one colour to knit a Monster Chunk - but definitely some striped ones.
I may give her a couple of them to share with her great-grandchildren.
Thanks again.

OMG,i love them to pieces!!!

i recently saw a pattern similar to these on etsy and haven't stopped thinking about them since.
i can't wait to be a more advanced knitter so i can make knit amis rather than crochet!

great work!!!!  Cheesy

Thank you all for the lovely comments!  Cheesy

neversaymichele - DangerCraft patterns are really great for beginner knit ami makers. They aren't too advanced at all and use the magic loop method which is easy to learn and makes the whole process more enjoyable than using DPNs. Let me know if you need any help! I'm all about converting crochet ami makers to knit ami makers Smiley.

I just watched a couple videos on the magic loop method. It doesn't look hard at all.
Maybe I'll pick up one of DangerCraft's patterns after your recommendation!

I love knit ami's! I've always been more drawn to them than crochet kinds, but I haven't attempted any since I've only been knitting for barely a couple months.

Thanks so much for your help! I'll let you know how it goes Cheesy
