I’m still weaving and working on my Ami Along.

This is Lila. It was a fun amialong. I wonder what we are going to do next month.

Check the side Instagram feed for Westley and Buttercup. You will want to watch the Princess Bride and re-enact it with the plush dolls.

I’ve got some new designs in the works: Head bands with horns! My daughter is into anime and cosplay, she’s so excited.

Now for your free pattern: Frankenstein’s Monster.

I’ve already posted his bride. You can now make the matching set.

Or if you are into old movie monsters, you can add the mummy in to the set as well. This pattern is not tested. If you find a problem, let me know. If you make him, post on Instagram with #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.

Enjoy:

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.

HEAD – in Limelight
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometime 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 add the hair and stuff him.

Rounds 7-17: SC in each stitch for 11 rows [48 stitches per row].
Fasten off. Note: This flat edge is what is attached to the hair. Place the oval increase side at the bottom in order to see placing for eyes and embroidery.
Place safety eyes between rows 10-11 approximately 8 stitches apart. It helps to fold the head flat so you can make sure it is centered on the oval.

Embroider a grey scar over the right eye by making a diagonal straight stitch and crossing the stitch with small straight stitches.

Next to the left eye you will want to embroider a black scar in the same fashion but more upright.

Using red, embroider a small straight mouth centered between the eyes about 5 rows lower.

Make sure you tie all of these off inside the head to prevent unraveling later.
