I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s great to crochet teddy bears, giraffes, ponies and cats. However, sometimes you want to go a little off-beat, a little crazy. There’s nothing better for this than alien and monster inspired crocheted creatures.

At the same time, this is such a fun and zany project that you should give in to your whimsy and crochet this. You will enjoy the challenge and increase your skills. link to the free pattern is under the photos.
