I made this for our lovely kittykill in the Vintage Halloween Swap last year. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426691.0#axzz2gOCwqcJT  Her and I both love all the classic Universal Monster movies and well, amigurumi is ma thang, so this is the result!  He was a little fussy to make as I wanted him to be unmistakable.  I'm not sure if I succeeded, but I was pretty happy with the results.  No pattern, just whipped him up.  I was most proud of the fact that I was actually able to give him 'knees' and not just trunks for legs.  Now, I'm hitting myself on the head for not having taken notes as I can't for the life of me remember how I did it. Doh!





some details...


sorry, didn't realize this pic was blurry, but it's supposed to be a detail of his back fin


Thanks for looking!

Did you just wing this or did you write a whole new pattern (and/or base it off an already existing pattern)? This is so creepy cute!

KarmicLollipop, I WISH I had written a pattern!  I really just wanted to have fun, and I got lazy about taking notes.  Totally winged-it.  It was fun.  Smiley
