Frankenstein Crochet Monster Pillow

Ladies and (some) Gentlemen, introducing… Mr. Frankenstein Crochet Monster Pillow!

When I started thinking up these crochet monster pillows, Frankenstein was just a must. I was walking down the aisles of Joann Fabrics letting the colors of each Bernat Blanket yarn inspire me and when I saw this green, it called out to me.

I absolutely loved creating all of these monster pillows, but I think Mr. Frank (for short) has to be my favorite. I just love how detailed his face is with extra features. The bolts on the side of his head were a last minute thought which is funny because duh… you can’t have Frankenstein without his deformities!



The Frankenstein Crochet Monster Pillow was designed relatively the same way as the Marty the Monster pillow. You will be crocheting 6 separate panels that you will single crochet together to form the pillow shape. If you need more of an explanation of how exactly to do that, go take a look over there where I completely explain everything and if you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to comment below or shoot me an email!

See pictures for facial feature placement.

Sew the pupils onto the eyes and the eyes onto one of the large panels with the top of the eye beginning right below the 4th row from the top.

On the 3rd row from the bottom, insert your long strand of black yarn between the first and second stitches on the right side and weave through every two stitches down the row.

Sew the tooth above the 2nd mouth line from the left.

Sew on your monster’s stitches to the left of the eyes in any way you’d like. Check out the photos if you need help!

Sew the hairline triangles to the top 4 rows as shown in the photo.

Sc together the back panel to each side panel around.

Do the same with the front panel BUT before you finish off the last side, stuff it profusely with your polyfil stuffing. It takes quite a bit!

Take your large eyed tapestry needle and sew the corners of the panels shut.

Lastly, sew the bolts onto the side of your monster’s head with your tapestry needle!
