Troika – The three eyed monster – Free Pattern
Monsters, Monsters, Monsters. I love monsters. Big monsters, little monsters, it really doesn’t matter. Check the Monster category for lots of free monster patterns. There’s Clyde, Frank Cyclopstra, Sparky and Frostina, and many more.
Meet Troika. He’s got 3 eyes and quite the personality. I don’t know if the wings will actually lift him in the air, but he will try. If you make him use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find him.

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.
