i call him "mr. manic depression."  he has a face to fit both happy moods and horrible moods.

happy/friendly/productive-member-of-society-side


sad/hateful/about-to-eat-you side

i made each side individually, all in single stitch except for the ears, where i went single-double-triple-(whatever the next biggest is called)-triple-double-single.  then i just crocheted the sides together.

i'll try and set up a pattern for it.  i just freehanded the thing, but i'm sure i can come up with something retroactively

i've actually done that with crocheting in public, too.  in fact, when i was about fifteen i went through a period where i was just freehanding hats everywhere i went, about one a day.  i was actually doing them at stop signs when i was driving!  then i had to teach all of the boys i habitually hung out with, too.  i think we were the only band of hooligans the town had ever seen that ran around in technicolor berets made from red heart yarn Smiley

here's a pattern, or reasonable fascimile thereof:
ears-
ch 20
rw 1: *1 single stitch, 1 half-double, 1 double, 1 triple, 1 double, 1 half-double, 1 single*, slip st 6, repeat from * to *
flip work around so that your ears are arching downwards, and ss along the bottom of the ears, ch 1 for turning ch in every following row
rw 2-23: ss 20
rw 24: ss to end of row, ch 6 out
rw 25: ss in each of the 6 new loops, work across original 20, ch 6 out again
rw 26: #ss in each of the 6 new loops, work across original 20, ss in 6 on the other side#
rw 27-32: repeat from # to #
rw 33: ss 26
rw 34-40: ss 20

feet-
rw 1: continuing from bottom of body, ss 7
rw 2-6: ss 7
rw 7: ss 7, then slip stitch back down the inside edge of the foot, slip stitch 6 along the bottom of the body, single stitch 7
rw 8-13: ss 7

make two of these.

tail:
ch 8
rw 1: in front loops of chain, 1 hds, 1 ds, 1ts, 1ds, 1 hds.  turn around and repeat in back loops.
rw 2: alternate color.  1 ts, 1 ds, 1 hds, 1 ds, 1 ts, repeat.
rw 3: alternate color.  1 hds, 1 ds, 1 ts, 1 ds, 1 hds, repeat.
rw 4: repeat rw 2
rw 5: repeat rw 3
rw 6-11: work ss in the round, decreasing until there are 14 stitches around

construction:
sew on face(s), embellishments, etc, put bodies together so that arms match up, place tail below the arm that is slightly higher up, and crochet together using single stitch
------------------

feel free to ask any questions.  i'm sure that was probably kind of confusing.  hopefully the more patterns that i write, the better i'll get!

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!
