Free Crochet Pattern – Louie the Shrimp.


I took a week off to take the kids on Vacation for Spring Break. Then I was behind when it comes to typing patterns.

This is a new addition to my Cuddly Aquarium collection. I love when I get requests to make creatures I had never thought of. Follow me on Instagram @drunkenauntwendy for what I am currently working on.

Let me know if something is off. If you post it on Instagram use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.  I don’t know why the spacing went all weird at the end.

Check the side Instagram feed for Westley and Buttercup. You will want to watch the Princess Bride and re-enact it with the plush dolls.

I’ve got some new designs in the works: Head bands with horns! My daughter is into anime and cosplay, she’s so excited.

Now for your free pattern: Frankenstein’s Monster.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

HEAD – in Limelight
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometime it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you add the hair and stuff him.

Ch 8
Round 1: SC in 2nd Ch, SC in next 5 stitches. 3 SC in last stitch. Working in the unused loops from the chain, SC 5, 3 SC in last chain. [18]

Round 4: [6 SC, (SC, INC, SC) 3 times] repeat bracket one more time [36].
Round 5: [6 SC, (3 SC, INC) 3 times] repeat bracket one more time [42].
Round 6: [6 SC, (2 SC, INC, 2 SC) 3 times] repeat bracket one more time [48].
Rounds 7-17: SC in each stitch for 11 rows [48 stitches per row].
Fasten off. Note: This flat edge is what is attached to the hair. Place the oval increase side at the bottom in order to see placing for eyes and embroidery.
Place safety eyes between rows 10-11 approximately 8 stitches apart. It helps to fold the head flat so you can make sure it is centered on the oval.

Embroider a grey scar over the right eye by making a diagonal straight stitch and crossing the stitch with small straight stitches.

Next to the left eye you will want to embroider a black scar in the same fashion but more upright.

Using red, embroider a small straight mouth centered between the eyes about 5 rows lower.

Make sure you tie all of these off inside the head to prevent unraveling later.

BOLTS – Make 2 in Graymist

Round 1: 6 SC in 2nd CH from hook. [6].

Here is my first dog:

I also stepped out of my regular pattern and made this super cute Flareon.  I love using a needle felting tool to attach the wonderful fluff.

Free Crochet Pattern – Grizelda


I joined an Amialong. I’ve been working diligently to finish the dogs from the pattern. It is the year of the dog according to the Chinese Calendar. I’ll  post pictures when I’m done.

Grizelda is a sparkly cuddly little unicorn. She’s ready to brighten your day. Her hooves and horn are made with a glitter yarn. The glitter yarns tend not to be very sturdy so I paired it with a sport weight cotton to give it a bit more structure.

She isn’t tested. If you make her, use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find your work.

Free Crochet Pattern – Mr. Sa – the Superbug, MRSA


Here at Drunken Aunt Wendy Designs, I’ve been continuing my crochet microbes series. Below you will find a pattern for Mr. Sa. He’s MRSA under the microscope. He’s got a cape because he’s a superbug. I think I’m going to have to crochet an antibiotic in order to fight off all these diseases.

But before we get to your free pattern, lets check in on everything else I have been up to.

I finished my gingham plaid scarf. I went a little crazy on the color scheme settling on Lime Green and Blush.

Handwoven plaid scarf

Handwoven scarf

This one I made with worsted weight acrylic yarn. I don’t think I will use the same kind of yarn in the warp as it was a touch sticky in the heddle. The next scarf will be purple silk made out of lace weight yarn. It should have amazing drape.

Last week I also found a bonus sweater. What is a bonus sweater? Well it is a completely knitted wool cable sweater that just needed the arms sewn on. Exactly how many projects do I have going that I forgot I knitted a sweater. I mean seriously.

Handknit sweater with cables

It is made out of Wool of the Andes Yarn in Sapphire Heather from Knit Picks. I’m a big fan of this site. The yarn is very reasonable and makes sweater knitting significantly cheaper. The pattern is called the Central Park Hoodie. It is one of my favorite patterns. I have knitted it a couple of times. The end project is super cozy. I did go up a size on the arms as my biceps are huge. (knitting apparently beefs them up, lol).

Free Crochet Pattern

Now what you have all been waiting for. Here’s the crochet pattern for Mr. Sa, the MRSA superbug.
