The Babadook – Free Pattern

Crochet Babadook Pattern

 the babadook picture

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.

Materials


I love this yarn Black

I love this yarn in Antique White

9 mm safety eyes
Size E crochet hook

Large eye blunt needle

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.

Freddy Krueger – Free Pattern

Freddy Krueger Crochet

 

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. If you make him, use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find your work on Instagram and give you love.
