I recently did a personal swap with the amazingly fun, talented and generous craftster favorite, SpookyPooky.

She was looking for some miniature Yeti and Big Foot pals to add to her growing collection of Cryptozoic creatures. Here's what I made...

A tiny yeti who lives in an extra chilly place. He needed more than his bushy fur to keep him warm so I knitted him a scarf...

He's made with tatting thread and a 1.25 mm crochet hook. His scarf is made from lace weight yarn and size 1 knitting needles.


I also made some baby yetis, more commonly known in scientific circles as "yetilettes". These little guys are so young that they haven't developed any fur yet. Thus they must turn to other methods to keep from freezing.

They were made with tatting thread and a 1.4 mm hook. I used embroidery floss for their eyes, rosey cheeks and accessories.



Yetilettes need a mamma of course. Here she is...she looks kinda mad  Undecided



I share SpookyPooky's love of big foot - especially since I live in the Pacific Northwest!

I made this BIG big foot using Lion Brand Fun Fur and a knitting pattern from DangerCrafts. I added the feet Smiley. He doesn't really fit the "mini" theme I was going for but he is a BIG foot. I used size 7 knitting needles to make him and he turned out to be about 6 or 7 inches tall.



This baby big foot was made using the same pattern as the big guy above only I used tatting thread and size 1 needles to make him. He sucks at hiding but he's practicing the skill by holding a little branch over his face Smiley.



Here are the big and little brother big foots (or is it big feets??) together...



Thanks so much for looking! I had loads of fun making these little critters for SpookyPooky Smiley.

So incredible! The pictures do not do these creatures enough justice!

A. They are so tiny! Tinier than the pictures even convey.
B. They have incredible detail!
C. They are so well done! I cannot believe she can do this on such a teeny-tiny scale.
C. They are the cutest things ever!

I cannot thank you enough Limeriot! I love, love, love them! You are amazing!
