Little Minion

I said that my large minion was the first of a couple that I had made. Well, this is the other guy. He’s about the size of a Blackberry cell phone and I think is quite cute.

It was Dave, my husband’s idea for me to make minions and these little guys were what he had in mind. I must say they’re a hit with my kids and all their friends.

I used a 3mm hook and double knit yarn. This makes them strong and firm and will keep their shape. I looked for ages online to find a pattern, but wasn’t really satisfied, so I made this one up.

I made a Minion!! Well, I made a couple actually, but this is the first one I made and he’s quite big.

I struggled to find a pattern, so I made this one up as I went along. As I keep saying, I should have written the pattern down as I went, but I didn’t. To be honest I found it a lot of hard work and whilst I’m please with the outcome, I can’t see myself making another quite like this.

He is quite cute, and I’m particularly pleased with the ‘G’ on the pocket. He has been shipped off to Cape Town and I’m sure will make a fine companion to Keri. Enjoy sweet girl.
