Smiley Cyrus – Free Crochet Pattern

She sings! She sticks out her tongue! She just the cutest little monster.

Smiley Cyrus likes to hang out with her friends Frank Cyclopstra and Beebs.

Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Materials
Worsted Weight Yarn
Vanna’s Choice – Aqua
I love this yarn – White
I love this yarn – Black

Abbreviations

Note: 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.

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

Mango and Tango – monsters out on the town.

Mango and Tango – monsters out on the town.

2015-07-19 12.51.19-1

I present Mango and Tango. Tango is taking his monster lady friend out on the town dancing. Here’s hoping their tails don’t get tangled.

I tried new things on these two. I added eyelids:

And I used doll eyelashes. This shows Mango without her lashes:

2015-07-19 00.13.30

I’m still deciding whether I like the eyelashes or not.

The pattern will be free for two weeks. Let me know if you have any issues, problems or if anything is confusing. I have several more monsters in the works. If these two aren’t your favorites, I’m sure I’ll eventually find one you like. Also, I will be breaking it up as follows: Three sets of monster patterns and then something else for one week, repeat. This is until I get tired of monsters.

(Updated 8/7/15)

Thanks to everyone who tried out the pattern. I didn’t get any complaints so I’m going to post it to Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy.

The new monster pattern Seneca will be up today.

Lt llama goes to Okinawa

Standard

My friend Lina is a marine. For some reason her animal is a llama, complete with hand gestures. When she was first shipped to Afghanistan, her sister and I conspired. I made Lt Llama from a pattern from deliciouscrochet.com, with minor modifications. Mainly, I made her a helmet.

Lt Llama then traveled between Lina’s family and friends and we sent her pictures while she was deployed.

She recently was sent to Okinawa, so we had to change up her outfit. Inspired by Mr. Miyagi, here’s the end result:

Good Luck Lina and stay safe. Happy Veterans Day. Remember those men and women who protect and serve this country and all those who have.
