Bride of Frankenstein – Free Pattern

Bride of Frankenstein – Free Pattern

Halloween is almost upon us. I’m done with the mini-monsters and I will be moving on to Mythical Creatures for an online contest. I’m still typing up the patterns on a regular basis. I’ll try to keep to my current schedule and post them regularly.

I’m also teaching myself how to make soap. It was a project with the kids that I am expanding on.

First soaps with the kids.

The goat’s milk soap doesn’t take the colors as well. I’m not sure whether I like the goat’s milk vs. the glycerin that is clearer so the colors are brighter. I am also adding scents, but very lightly as I don’t like strong scents.

Here’s your Bride of Frankenstein Pattern. Again it hasn’t been tested. Join the mailing list for exclusive content.

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

Attach to head pursuant to the instructions below.

HEAD – in Pistache
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you finish the head and stuff her.
