Bean Monster

6 Jul

There is so much love in this monster.  The original image for this pattern came from a drawing that my husband did.  A doodle, really.  But, as a friend once said, “he is a Norse god of doodling”, meaning his quick drawings are usually much better than us mere mortals can do if we sat down and concentrated all day.  Indeed.  In the years we’ve been married (nearly 8!) we’ve occasionally collaborated on art projects but this just may be my favorite so far.

Short rows create most of the shaping.  The ears and jaw are knit separately and sewn on, but otherwise there is no seaming.

Yarn: sport weight wool or blend of your choice
Yardage: approximately 110yds in cream, plus a bit in gray for embellishments
Gauge: 7sts/ inch in stockinette
Suggested needle size: US size 2, either 4 DPNs or one long circular
Finished measurements:  approximately 7″ tall
Price: $4
