Gunther, Part 2

IMG_0203

If you haven’t made Gunther yet, click on his name there and you’ll find the pattern for him. This post has the patterns for his accessories, although I didn’t get pictures while I was making them, so hopefully nobody will have problems following the patterns.

I was going to split this up into 2 or 3 posts, and post them throughout this week, but it’s been pretty hectic around here. I decided it would be easier to just sit here this evening and type up each of the patterns at once. If you like Gunther, and his awesome accessories, go check out Camp Happy Heart Fibre Arts on Facebook. She’s the one who came up with him and knitted him. This is my crocheted version.

Tie off.

Make two of these, but with the second one, don’t tie off. Hold both pieces together and crochet around them, being sure to keep the shape of the ear. When you get back to the beginning, sl st into first sc and tie off.

Make two ears. Using yarn and your yarn needle, position and sew ears onto hat.

Stuff horn and sew onto center of hat. Using the other colors of Simply Soft, attach yarn to hat. You can decide on the length that you’d like. After I had the main attached, I went through and pulled each piece apart to make it a bit more wild.

Shoulder Bag

Bag2

Materials needed (with affiliate links):

F (3.75mm) crochet hook

Row 2: Sc in each stitch across. Tie off. Using yarn needle, sew straps inside of bag. Attach button to the front of the bag.

Bag1

For the monster inside of his bag, I used a 1.5mm crochet hook, Aunt Lydia’s crochet thread10mm safety eyes, and the pattern for my Yeti. I wanted him to stick out of the bag, and he was a bit short, so I put some poly-fil in there with him. You can crochet a monster for inside of the bag, or crochet something completely different if you’d like.

I hope you enjoy these patterns! I had a lot of interruptions while writing these out, with thunderstorms and 7 other people in my house, so if there are any mistakes, or something is unclear, please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know. Or message me on Facebook. If you create any monsters of your own, be sure to post a photo on my Facebook page so I can see. I love seeing all of the things people are creating, and I’d love to see the different variations that people make of these. And don’t forget to check out Camp Happy Heart Fibre Arts on Facebook to see all of the other wonderful creations she’s made.
