Minion Stuart Pattern

Hi!

How are you guys? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends! Mine was awesome! I travelled with my parents and boyfriend to a hotel on the beach, where we spent our days going to te beach, doing some slackline and relaxing a lot! ^^

Today, I’m posting one pattern that it wasn’t on my to do list, which is growing a lot, by the way. However, a friend asked me if it was possible to make a 10cm Minion for his girlfriend and I got touched with his atitude and decided to accept his request.

I know there are many Minion patterns on the internet, but I haven’t find any in the size he wanted me to do it, which was 10cm. So, I decided to design one. Hope you like it ^^

Finally, I want to wish you a Happy New Year! May all your dreams come true!

Materials:

– Blue and grey yarn (I used Anne by Circulo, which is a Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi));
– Black Yarn (I used Anne by Circulo, which is a Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi));
– Yellow yarn (I used D’Primera by Cisne, which is a Worsted / 10 ply (9 wpi));
– Red Yarn (I used Anne by Circulo, which is a Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi));
– 4mm and 1.75mm crochet hooks;
– Fiberfill;
– Tapestry needle and scissors;
– White felt;
– Brown, light brown, black and white fabric paint and a paint-brush;
– Transparent plastic (to make the lens of his goggles);
– Contact glue;
– Galvanized soft wire.

Notes:

– I always do my crochet works using continuous rounds;
– Everytime I will do a crochet work, the first thing I do is take a look in the entirely pattern before start doing it, so, I can have an idea of how the pattern works. Well, I recommend you to do the same;
– For sewing the pieces together you will use the tapestry needle;
– To make the eyes you will use the felt and the fabric paint;
– To make the lens of his goggles you will need a transparent plastic;
– Please be extremely careful while handling the wire, it may hurt you if you don’t handle it properly.
