Hi friends, welcome back to another Free Pattern Friday! Today’s pattern is a super cute one that I think you will enjoy, it’s a Little Frankenstein Amigurumi Pattern! This pattern is not only cute but fairly easy and works up pretty quickly. There is quite a bit of sewing involved, but it’s all easy sewing.

As the second installation of this year’s Halloween patterns, I wanted something more spooky but still cute. And do you know what’s cute but also spooky? Kid versions of monsters of course! Usually, I’m totally freaked out by Frankenstein (with the exception of Herman Munster) but a cutesy kid version seems a lot less haunting. That’s not to say that kids can’t be totally haunting, I mean, I have had the misfortune of seeing Pet Cemetery and Orphan… *shudder* but this is a safe space away from freaky demon children haha. Well, with that horrifying thought, let's grab our supplies and jump into this week’s pattern, shall we?

Assembly:


-Pin the hair piece down, lining up the middle point with the middle of the face (I mark the middle of the face with sewing pins to make it easy to line up). I like to sew down the “back” of the hair (the hdc 31 st from the last round), leaving the front part not sewn down, but you can attach the hair however you’d like.


- Attach the body to the base of the head with the open sides together and sew through both loops of the last row of either piece to connect.


- Add the ears to the sides of the head (about 5 st back from the eyes) and then sew on the bolts a stitch below the ears.


-Attach legs so that Frankenstein can sit up on its own and then add arms to the sides of the body, with “thumbs” pointing forward.


-Once all of the pieces are sewn on, it’s time to embroider the scar.


-After that you are all finished! Here’s what it should end up looking like:
