One Little Monster

One little monster waiting to be posted. This is my softie that I made for the Softies for Mirabel campaign run by Meet Me At Mikes. It is based on a pattern in the book Usborne Art Ideas How to Knit. This book was given to my daughter just recently and has some very simple patterns in it. I made the monster with 100% wool and felted him before adding the stuffing. Instead of knitting the arms and legs I used my Clover french knitting tool and felted the braid before cutting it into the pieces for the arms and legs. I added a little bit of blanket stitch to the ends of the arms and legs just to make sure that they didn't unravel.
