I’m loving these Not-So-Scary Monsters! Technically this pattern is called the Scary Gary Crochet Dishcoth, but Gary the purple monster is definitely not scary! You can get this FREE Monster pattern HERE on Yarnspirations.com.
And yes, I used the CROCHET CARTOON EYES again I think I will make these into a pillow or maybe a trick-or-treating tote bag. I am using them more as appliqués rather than dishcloths.
I’m using Red Heart Super Saver in colors pumpkin, medium purple, and spring green. They are so bright and fun! You can shop all these colors and more on Yarnspirations.com.
The three monsters you see in my photos are made from the exact same pattern!

THE PURPLE MONSTER:
1. Make all parts of the pattern as written except the eye.
2. Make the regular size crochet cartoon eye using Turqua for the eye color. Crochet an extra round on the eye in white yarn: 2 SC in first, SC in next, repeat around. Fasten off leaving long tail to stitch the eye onto the middle of the purple monster.
THE GREEN MONSTER:
1. Make the head/body of pattern just how it’s written using Red Heart Super Saver in Spring Green.
2. Make two horns just as the pattern is written but in Spring Green instead of black yarn.
3. Make 2 regular size cartoon eyes using purple for the eye color. Stitch the eyes onto the tops of the green horns instead of the head/body.
4. Make the mouth bigger by chaining 35 instead of 15. Stitch it on in a wobbly squiggle.
As you can see, just a few small changes and you have a variety of silly monsters!
I had a few comments on social media that these would be fun hats. I think they definitely would!
