Rebecca Danger designs the cutest monster patterns around. This was my first time using one of her patterns — Daphne and Delilah the Momma and Baby Monster — and I love the resulting monster nuggets! The only modification I made was to pick up stitches on either side of the bodies to work the arms, rather than knitting them separately and sewing them on at the end.
I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Pastel Blue and Pastel Yellow for my friend Kiran’s soon-to-be-born nephew. Kiran especially liked that the monsters look like teeth since her sister is a dentist. I hope her sister also appreciates the fact that these monsters could use some braces! I cut the teeth out of white felt and used fabric glue to attach them.
I had some trouble choosing just one of Rebecca’s patterns so Jerry the Musical Monkey, Zeke the Aloof Alpaca and Napoleon the Nervous Narwhal are on my list! And maybe the narwhal will be just for me — I’ve always had a soft spot for the tusked whales.
A belated Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians and a Happy Fourth of July to the Americans!
