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.

You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch! This Christmas redemption classic by Dr. Seuss is a perennial favorite, and almost all of us have grown up with Thurl Ravenscroft’s sonorous baritone rendition of the theme song. What better way to celebrate the season and introduce this beautiful and fun story to future generations than to make an amigurumi Grinch for kids (and not only kids) to enjoy? This is a wonderful project in that it maintains the body proportions of the original cartoon Grinch, complete with the trademark Dr. Seuss scarf and tuft of hair. Don’t let your heart be an empty hole! Hurry and make one for the kids. Please consider giving him crochet eyes if you want to give one to the youngest fans. And now let’s see all the Grinch Free Crochet Patterns.
