Everything crochet!

Hey guys! So I thought I’d show you how my minion has been going so far. I’ve been working on it for 2 days now and its almost done! But I’m currently taking a break to make a father’s day present for my dad :).

So here are some pics from the start to how far I’ve gotten!

Start of the hat, end of increasing rounds. This part will be the top of the head of the minion, its 70 sc around:

Eye band, showing the start and end. This part was covered up with the eye so it isnt noticeable:

Showing my color changes when I started making the pants. I thought it would be quicker to keep the yarns intact and carry them along the inside of the piece rather than finish them off at every color change:Image

Cut the strings inside and tied them off:

Finished body stuffed. Eye seam still uncovered:

And this is as far as Ive gotten! I will still add on the arms, legs, finish off the overalls, buy some grey yarn to finish the goggles, and make sure he’s just right! I put him next to a skein to show his size. Its Red Heart Supersaver skein:

I measured him and heres his true size: Height (15″ from first to last row), Width (18″ around)

This is the pattern that I used for the main body, but I will post a completed pattern once hes done as I still havent done the hands and legs!
