Monster Nobody

28 July 13 - 19:23 Monster made from 1 ball of yarn. I used chunky, you use any yarn you like - big yarn results in a big monster, thin yarn in a small one.

Nobody is perfect, hence its name. Mine was made to comfort a chronically sick person.
Monster Nobody

Sirdar Click chunky, 1 ball
White felt
3-5 buttons for eyes, or some scrap felt in different colours
7mm needles – dpn or circ
Spare dpn (pref smaller size)
Sewing needle

Cast on 12st with Judy’s Magic Cast-On.
K 3 rounds
Inc 4 st
K 7 rounds
Using other end of ball, cast on 20st with Judy’s Magic Cast-On.
K 8 rounds on both legs
Next round: K 8st on first leg, cast on 6st with backward loop, cut yarn of second leg and continue with yarn of first leg, k all 20st of second leg, cast on 6st with backward loop, k 8st of first leg.
(You could use figure of 8 here but I feel it is easier to divide the filling neatly if you keep this gap open until last)
K 20 rounds.
Cast on 18st at end of row using figure of 8.
K9st through back loop, k round, k other new 9st through back loop.
K 8 rounds
On the opposite side cast on 12 st using figure of 8.
K6st, k round, k other 6 st.
K half a round.
Using a spare needle (preferably smaller size) cast off 30st (15st on either side) with 3-needle bind-off technique.
K one round. Count your st and make sure you have an equal amount on front and back. This is the moment to smuggle in that one extra decrease at the side of the cast-off arm, if you need to.
At the side of the cast-off arm, k1, ssk psso for every next round.
At the side of the new arm, decrease once every four rows. On this side k2tog.
On the other side, ssk psso, k until last 3 st, k2tog, k1.
When you have 14st left align needles with tips on middle side and graft st together (Kitchener st explained).

Finishing:
Add any number of eyes with a white felt circle and, depending on age of recipient, a button in the middle or a different-coloured felt circle. Cut a row of zig-zag teeth from white felt. Fill the monster. Sew the bottom gap closed. Make someone smile with perfect Nobody.
your turn!
