New Pattern: Tuppy Von Monster

After much mucking about with prototypes, changing my mind about colors, fiddling with horn shapes, and all manner of other knitterly shenanigans, I'm pleased to say that my monster is finished and ready for his closeup!

Hallo, my name is Tuppy!


Knitted out of worsted-weight yarn and designed with stashbusting in mind, this little guy uses less than 50 grams of the main color, and only a few grams each of four contrasting colors. You knew you were saving those random partial skeins for something!

Tuppy has a little bit of everything: knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches, simple charted colorwork, basic hand-stitching, and embroidery! The pattern includes six pages of photos and step-by-step instructions, and one page of templates for the wings and teeth.

Hooray for monsters!


I mentioned in my last post that my partner in monstrosity, Tanis, was working on her very own bundle of knitted ferociousness. Her creation, The Stubenmonster, is available on Ravelry too!
