Just in time for Halloween, some creepy new creatures have crept into Mochimochi Land…
Tiny Terrors are an itty-bitty vampire, werewolf, mad scientist, and two-headed dude who are out to make you scream! (Or at least squee!)
Like all of my tiny patterns, these guys can be knit up with very little yarn and with plenty of time left over for you to finish your Halloween costume. Perfect for a spooky diorama, a ghoulish garland, or surprises for your favorite trick-or-treaters.
Techniques include knitting in the round on double-pointed needles, I-cord, and a little stranded colorwork. Fingering-weight yarn and size 1 DPNs are recommended, but you can use any weight of yarn and appropriately sized needles. (Scrap yarn works great!)
As you can see, I got to buy lots of my favorite Halloween candies for the photo shoots for these guys. Here’s a behind-the-scenes shot of the main image.
(Yes, I have since eaten each and every one of those pumpkins and the candy corn above.)
As often happens during the testing stage of my patterns, I got to see some fun color variations that I hadn’t thought of. Amanda’s bunch included a mad scientist with some shockingly bright hair…
Which led me to make some of my own variations, including a tiny vampiress and a three-headed dude.
Instructions for tiny three heads are now included in the pattern, by the way.
Thanks to Amanda, and also Shama, Yvonne, and Marilyn!
I can’t wait to see what these designs become in the hands of the rest of you…
