Bravo a small monster crochet pattern

I’ve been busy this year focusing on my Animals from A-Z collection and pop culture female characters. Its hard to find crochet patterns I like for the ladies. There was a vote on Instagram for a character from the Marvel Universe  (Poor Buffy). I just go the supplies and finished another project so I’m really excited to get started. I hope everyone likes who I make. I’m not telling yet, watch Instagram to see.

I just recently Finished Cheetara. Crochet Cheetara Doll

This one was super fun to make. I think I made her hips a touch too big. I will see if I can fix that for when I test her. I also had trouble with making a tiny Thundercats logo. I’m still thinking of ideas to fix that. The spots ended up being easy. I just used a sharpie.

I also finished a Bad Decision Bear.

Don't Care Bear

She’s a Care Bear that is all grown up. I don’t know why the idea tickled me so much. I mean what is Drunken Aunt Wendy without a drunken Care Bear. She is adapted from ahookagurumi’s Don’t Care Bear Pattern. I really enjoy her stuff. You should check it out.

Now on to the free pattern. This is Bravo. He’s a little horned monster. This pattern works up great with just about any color for the body. I’ve had a lot of luck with self striping yarn too.

I may be cute, but I’ll still eat you.

He’s super quick to make up and is really easy to personalize.

Materials
Knit Picks Variegated – Tropical (85 yds)

Abbreviations

 

SC – Single Crochet

Ch- Chain
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch

DEC – SC two stitches together
BLO – Back loops only

Gauge – Gauge is not important for this project, but if you are making it from the kit, you should use the right size needle to ensure you don’t run out of yarn.

Notes:

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.

 Crochet section is worked in partly 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.
