Hug Monster

I was looking for a quick amigurumi to do over the weekend and I found the Hug Monster by Linda Salant. It is a free pattern.I absolutely loved it and had to make it. It was very quick to make, so I made two!

With the purple Hug Monster I used the listed hook size of 4.25 mm but with the blue one I used a 3.75 mm. The stuffing didn't show through the holes as much using the smaller hook, so when I make more I will continue with the 3.75 mm or 3.5 mm.

I am not sure how much yarn it took to make these but it didn't take much, so if you have a small ball of yarn this is a great project to use it for. You could use a bunch of scraps and make it striped or just have a solid colored monster, there are so many possibilities!
