Frankee Steinee
~ free crochet pattern ~

Monsters are, quite often, scarryyy. Or ugly? But let me introduce you to this cute & friendly monster, Frankee Steinee! Don’t worry, he comes in peace 😎  He just hasn’t figured out how to talk yet, but he’ll get there. If you’d like, you may add a scar on his face or belly. You can also add a loop on his head to hang on your Halloween tree! OK, let’s get started on some Halloween crochet!

SUPPLIES

NOTES

  • Frankee measures approx. 6.5″ (16.5cm) tall.
  • Frankee is worked in continuous round; do not join or turn.
  • Gauge is not essential – just keep your tension consistent throughout. It is a good idea to crochet tightly for amigurumi to avoid stuffing being shown between stitches.
