Britt-Marie Christoffrsson wrote popknitting Bold Motifs Using Color & Stitch. And it is bold – the designs pop off the page and beg to be used. There is a definate 60’s vibe here -kind of PeterMax and Andy Warhol all rolled into one.
Open wide and say AAHHeerrrrrggggg!silliness continues —
( there are two chapters describing slipped stitch welts)
curly tenacles tied off for hair (there are 3 chapter for playing with ties in your knitting and this particular one is knit right into the pattern with out cutting the yarn)

now for some eyes — I think goggly eyes would be best. Should they be crossed eyed? Or different colors? ………maybe he has 3 eyes in a cluster.
Is my monster like a bug with 6 legs or does he have claws like a crawdad?
If he has claws like a crawdad than he definately needs a tail!
WHO SAYS SWATCHING ISN’T FUN?????
I am having a blast with my swatch!!
Check out the Itty Bitty Group here for more fun and charity knitting
and come back later in the week to see what happens with my monster.
