Free Crochet Pattern: Fun Fur Monster

By Rachel Choi – 6 Comments
I bought some fun fur yarn on clearance not knowing exactly what to make with it. It turns out I made this fun little monster! The pattern it’s self is fairly easy, but if you’ve never worked with fun fur before, I would suggest playing around with it first before trying to make anything. Often times it can be hard to see the stitches in your work so try and push the “eyelashes” of the yarn back to help get a good visual of where to stick you hook. Other than that, have fun making this goofy monster!

    Hi,
    I tried to crochet with yarn like this once, but I could not see what I was doing. So the pattern might be very easy, but the work is still difficult. I admire it!
