Monster Toy, knitting pattern, pdf, My Mini Monsters
My Mini Monsters are fun little creatures for you to love. They are very peaceful and like to explore and have long chats about life the universe and everything! My Mini Monsters don’t have any names yet! Their Monster names are not easy for people to say, so they are waiting for their new human friends to name them! Every Mini monster who leaps from your needles will be an individual, so you’ll need help from your kids and grandkids to find names for them all. Knitted flat with straight needles Mini Monsters have very few seams. Simple shaping is used through-out (kfb, k2tog and p2tog) and I give row by row instructions. This pattern is suitable for confident new knitters.

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
