The No Worry Monster And Lovey Blanket Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

The No Worry Monster And
 Lovey Blanket Crochet Pattern 

By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs


This Idea Came to me when my Friend was telling
 me about her son going to camp for the first time.
He was afraid the kids would tease him
 if He took his favorite stuffed animal with him.




I designed the 

little stuffed "No

 Worry Monster"

 that is small 

enough to hide 

from his friends,

but might bring

 him some 

comfort.



And If they do see it,

It's Just A Cute Silly Monster!


It  is designed using 

Sweet Home Blanket Yarn by Red Heart Yarn

 Which is a Bulky (6)

So it is Fuzzy, Soft and Squishy.

I decided to call this Cute Monster a 

"No Worry Monster", because in our conversation

 his mom said, "I just wish he would stop worrying,

 and have fun."

COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (13) Let's Talk Tension and Gauge | Posh Pooch Designs

COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (13) Let's Talk Tension And Gauge
With Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs
🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞


See The Video On my Youtube Channel 
 at This LINK


What is Tension and Gauge when it  comes to Crochet?

What is Tension?
Tension is basically how tight or loose you Crochet Hook.



 What is Gauge?
Gauge is determined By Rows X Stitches. The Yarn label will state
 For Example: 


US 1/ 5.5 MM Crochet Hook
12 S X  15 R = 4 X 4 inch swatch
This means 12 single crochet stitches X 15 Rows
 will equal a Gauge swatch that is 
4 inches wide X 4 inches tall.


Why is this important?
It will help you determine how tight your tension is.
If Your swatch measures bigger or small them it should, you know you need to change your tension.

By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞





















See The Video on my Youtube Crochet
 Channel At This LINK



Thinking Outside the Pattern
 means To let loose and use your creative juices.

1. Change the Yarn -

Try a different blend or fiber -
 just stay in the same weight.




2.Change the colors - Try mixing the colors  up, changing more or less often. Or Try a  Variegated or Ombre.







3.Change the
 hooks - 
Chang hooks sizes 
 and see what happens.

4. Change the length and width
Add or Subtract stitches where needed. 
Remember to measure as you go.



5. Change Both
 the Yarn 
and Hook - Go  Smaller 
or Bigger.

The Main Thing is to have fun. 

And get out there and be creative.
