  1. Can the pattern be written in standard version. It too much to follow…

  2. Hi there I was wondering were you got the keys from?

  3. Mimi Daniel says

    The pattern is written in a very confusing and time-consuming way. Is there anyway to get it written normally? I love this little guy and have been crocheting for YEARS. However, I am busy and cannot spend the time needed on this one pattern. I REALLY love this little guy so I will do my own some day if I cannot find a clear pattern. *sad face*

    Your pattern is a little hard to read. It took me a while to figure it out, but I think I have it now. Can’t wait to make a bunch of these for my nephews and son for Christmas. They are going to love them.

  5. hi

  6. What size hook are you using for this lil guy?

  7. I made this pattern for my younger cousin and he just LOVES it. i just had to make one for me too. haha and i also am only 13.

  8. thx for the pattern it came out great!!!!


  9. You should make the instructions more clear. Plus, I think you should do a magic circle instead of a starting circle because I didn’t really get it. Other than that this is sooooo AWESOME!!!!! I’m making an attempt to do this. BTW i’m only 13.

  10. I LOVE this super amigurimi!!!! Mine’s almost done… i added some “hair” and had to stiripe more to use up my scraps…. thanks you so much…bj

  11. These are totally awesome! These are by far the easiest monsters to make, and every person of all ages favorite! To make safe for little ones just crochet a set of eyes and sew them on, or cut out felt eyes and sew them on, the goofier the eyes the better.

    I made these for my Church fundraisers, local hospital, even the local
    library wanted them. I’m glad they can be made with cheap yarn ;-}

    Thank you VERY much for this pattern.

  12. The directions are very unclear. I wish there was something to show how many stiches are in one row, Need to make directions better. Other than that in the pictures they look cute. 😀

  13. I’m going to make this for a friend’s new baby and add rattles in the legs, maybe the arms too : ) super cute!!!

  14. So cute and im gonna try and make one as soon as i have finished my current project!

  15. I love this so much I have made like 10 of them because i made one for myself and everyone had to have on…. THANK YOU

  16. What a stylish guy! One of the best amigurumi designs you see around!!!! And the leg joining technique is great, it makes everything look right in that delicate area :-).
