Hannibal – mini monsters

© DrunkenAuntWendyDesigns


Yarn in Orange, White, Grey, Beige and Taupe

Black Embroider Floss
12 mm safety eyes
Size E crochet hook

Large eye blunt needle



SC – Single Crochet

Ch- Chain
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch

DEC – SC two stitches together

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.


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.
