Taggle and Zoink (Monsters CAL)

Our monster menagerie is complete!

Taggle and Zoink have joined the parade of crocheted amigurumi monsters designed exclusively for us by Stacey at FreshStitches.



Taggle is batty for yarn!

Taggle is a 5 inch tall bundle of love who is as batty for yarn as you are!

Let him fly into your heart on wings of black Ella Rae Classic Wool. Or maybe blue. Or green. There are so many Classic Wool colors it might be hard to decide which one to use!

You can download the free pattern for Taggle here. You can add him to your Ravelry queue here.



Zoink has his eye on you!

Zoink is 8 inches of focused attention. He’s got his eye on you and doesn’t intend to loose this staring contest.

Along with Sparkie and Bixi, Zoink is one of my favorites.

I have two more monsters to make! I better get cracking!

You can download the free pattern for Zoink here. You can add him to your Ravelry queue here.

CAL Contest

Don’t forget to enter a picture of your finished monster made using one of our yarns for a chance to win the prize at the end of the crochet along. (US residents. Void were prohibited.)

You can upload it to the Ella Rae Facebook page. Or, if you aren’t on Facebook, email it to Ann at “twitter (at) knittingfever (dot) com”. (Replace the words “at” and “dot” with the appropriate symbol, of course.)

Show us the fun adventures your monsters are having now that they have come to live with you. Our favorite one will win. Some really cute pictures have already been submitted!

The deadline to send in your picture is Friday, Nov 2, which gives you just over a week to finish crocheting your monster.
