Werewolves and Fries

You never know where inspiration will hit you. I found some inspiration while ordering lunch a couple of weeks ago at Sonic. They are selling these toys in the kid’s packs and after seeing the promotional sign I was in love with the little werewolf. We ended up getting the skeleton and Frankenstein toys but that werewolf stayed with me. I finally decided to make my own

werewolf so I made a sweet embroidered one.

Here is the embroidery pattern in case you need a werewolf in your life. I just piled on the french knots for his furry face.

You can use it to make a brooch for Halloween.

This is a Christmas Spoiler.

So if I am having Christmas at your house or will be sharing good times with you this season
you may not want to read on.....
or you may be a little naughty like me and want to read on and then email me requesting a specific color. I love you either way.

I just love this pattern too much not to share. I have been knitting on and off for a year now. I have many limitations. I knit best on large needles with big fun chunky yarn and if I make a mistake I'm up a creek because I have no ability to fix it. I found a great easy project that suits me perfectly the knitted cowl pattern by Copycat is awesome. It is super easy to knit and turns out fabulous. In fact it was my first time using circular needles and it still turned out beautifully. I am finishing my third and hope to make one a week till December giving them to my friends, family, and teachers. I am working on adding my own touch and will share some brooch ideas soon.

When I was taking a pic to share I slipped the cowl on my little girl and it was darling. It looks like a poncho/capelet, she may need one in a fun color
