I’ve made 10 that will be typed up and make it onto the blog. Samara, the Babadook and Freddy Krueger are already up.

The movie series Saw pits the victims against elaborately constructed “Games” to make them learn the value of life. These games are often introduced by a ventriloquist puppet.

Gauge is not important for this project. If you have purchased the kit, it is important to use the right size hook  in order to ensure you have enough yarn.
Note – this project is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join the rounds.

 

Notes: Almost the 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.

Next in my series of mini movie monsters we have The Babadook from the movie of the same name. Your finished little monster will be about 5″ from top of his hat to the end of his outfit.

I find him super cute and not creepy at all. Again not tested, so let me know if you have problems. Coming soon we should have Jason, Michael Myers, Pennywise and Twisty. At least that is my 1st 6. I’ve sketched 6 more. I’m working on Ghostface now. I had to rework him as he looked too much like Jack Skellington.

I’ve been working on these absolutely adorable mini monsters.

Mini Monster

These pots don’t need to be watered.

I love scary movies and October is fast approaching. Nightmare on Elm Street is one of my favorites. Freddy Krueger is scary and funny all at once. My favorite kind of movie villain.

While they don’t have to be in pots, they certainly look cute in these little 2.5″ terra cotta pots. The finished ones are about 5 inches tall.

As I have mentioned before, the below pattern isn’t tested. If you have problems or issues, please let me know.
