It’s alive! It’s alive! This is Franklin. Don’t worry he’s not scary at all! Franklin is a friendly and adorable little monster who enjoys playing with robots and watching funny cartoons.

I was originally just going to call him Little Frankenstein but my little girl suggested Franklin – and it’s such a cute name for a cute little monster!

Franklin’s pattern is now available for download in my Etsy and Craftsy store.

Franklin’s pattern is suitable for novice amigurumi crocheters as it only consist of single crochet stitches throughout, no complex stitches. You will need to know how to make a magic ring, crochet in spirals, single crochet, single crochet increase and decrease and basic sewing and embroidery techniques. The pattern is filled with plenty of photos for references and assistance.

I used a 4mm and 4.5mm crochet hook and 8 ply acrylic yarn to crochet Franklin and the finished size is about 26cm (10 inches) from top to bottom.

You will need:

  • 4mm crochet hook
  • 4.5mm crochet hook
  • 8 ply Acrylic yarn ball in Black, Light Brown, Light Green and Dark Grey – at least 50g (130m/140yds) each
  • 8 ply Acrylic yarn ball in Light Grey – at least 10g (26m/28yds)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle
  • Hand sewing needle
  • Sewing thread (your choice of colour)
  • Polyester toy stuffing2x 14mm plastic safety eyes
  • 2x small round buttons
  • Stitch marker (optional)
  • Pins (optional)
