    How adorable! I’ve made little vegetable hats for kids but Monsters! Way more cool than vegetables!

  2. Holly Ingraham says:

    I can’t stand how adorable these are! My sister has no idea that I’m going to turn her daughter into a little monster!

    Hi, I am having difficulty with the patterns. I consider myself a intermediate knitter but when I try to do the honey bear hat, row 31 and on doesn’t make sense. could you please help me?

  4. Sarah Goldstein says:

    We’ll try, yes! We’re looking now and will get back to you shortly.

    I’m knitting the Alien Elf hat from Monster Knits for Little Monsters and the pattern as printed only gives one chevron made with 2 by 2 cabling on the front; not three as shown in the photo. This is very disturbing to me. It really needs the three diagonal ribs. Can you please help? I’m in the middle of this right now!

  6. Len says:

    I just bought the book and started knitting the miniature robot hat. I’m also getting confused with Round 31. Can you please help. Thanks.

  7. carrie says:

    I am glad I am not the only one having trouble with these patterns. Please help with row 31.

  8. Brandy says:

    I just got the book and am trying to knit the Dinky Dragon mittens in the 2nd size, and the count is off from the first row after the ribbing…is there a correction for this?? Is it just me or do there seem to be quite a few errors in this book? I’m a little bit disappointed by what I’m reading…might not be able to complete very many of these 🙁

  9. Krystal says:

    I’m trying to make the Dinky Dragon hat (size 2-3 years old)but I’m stuck on row 33 and 34. Row 33 and 34 don’t make sense to me because the number of stitches called for doesn’t match the number of stitches that the pattern says should be there. Is there an error with this pattern or am I reading the pattern wrong? Please help.

  10. Kelly Sutherland says:

    I’m a bit confused on the bluebird pattern. All went well till row 31, the smallest size pattern. What does it mean to K18, K2tog, k17, k2tog, turn. 55 sts.
    When you have 57 sets on your needles from row 30, then row 31 following above instructions, I still have 18 sts. Left on my needle.
    I think the word Turn is messing me up even when I read instruct for rows 32,33 etc.
    please explain?
