Monster Mash!

I love everything fall especially Halloween! The weather here has finally turned, we’re getting the lovely 70 degree days and perfect for sleeping cooler evenings. It was time to whip some Halloween inspired amigurumi for you!
How cute are these little guys?! They work up quickly and can be easily altered for many more characters. They all follow the same basic arms and legs with slightly altered heads on a couple.
I’ll post one pattern every Monday, sort of a Halloween countdown! Ok, let’s be honest….it also gives me a bit of a buffer on pattern making. 😂
So, stay tuned, first one will be up in a couple of days.
