Mini Monsters – Carrie

Last year I did a bunch of mini monsters for Halloween. I didn’t get them all typed. I wanted to add this one to the mix. They’re all gonna laugh at you.

One of my first Steven King books and my absolute best Halloween Costume. (I even won a contest)

Crocheted Carrie
Blood everywhere

As you can see, I may have gotten blood all over my walls and radiator. Its all good because it was just stage makeup mixed with a lot of water. (I was going to use paint, but in the test run it dried really crusty). The makeup stays nice and bright, but it does transfer off if you rub it directly.

The hair can be attached anyway you like. This is a new method, that I like a lot, but it is a touch confusing.

You also can make her with no blood, but where is the fun in that.

Fuzzy yellow yarn
12 mm safety eyes
Doll Eyelashes

Polyfiberfill

Abbreviations

SC – Single Crochet
Ch- Chain
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch
DEC – SC two stitches together
BLO – Back loops only
FLO – Front 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.

HAIR
In Fuzzy Yellow
Take a piece of yarn and measure the crown of your dolls head. Set this aside, you will use this to make sure you make enough hair.

Using the hair color, wrap the yarn around an item the same width as you want the length of your hair to be. (I used my iphone). These wraps should be as long on the phone as your set aside piece of hair. The more wraps you do, the thicker the hair.

Then using the same yarn, SC along the spine of your item catching 3-4 pieces of yarn at a time. (This secures the hair). Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Cut the hair at the other end.

Lay chain on head with hair covering face and tack down. Flip hair to the back of the head and start tacking down sections. Leave some free.

PIGS BLOOD
Wet the red makeup to a runny consistency. You want it in between honey and whole milk. Dump on your dolls head. I also used a toothbrush and spattered some on her to spread out the blood.
