2020 was rather a strange year wasn’t it, it was a year when many of the things we’d perhaps been looking forward to, like occasions or events had to be cancelled, and that includes one of my favourite places to visit – The Crochet Sanctuary.
Most of the Sanctuary dates of 2020 had to be postponed however, in-between lockdowns, there was one Sanctuary that I was able to attend in the October and it turned out to be a bit more than originally planned! When the lovely Lisa & Lynda asked me if I could be the stand in designer (instead of Den Dennis who was stuck in Amsterdam) of course I was happy to help. It made sense, I would have been attending anyway (as a guest) and I’m lucky enough to live about 40 minutes away from the venue.
So I put together a fun Halloween themed design which I’ve just realised I never got around to formatting to share with you – until now! Allow me to introduce the Sweet Treat Eaters; Lisa Lollipop and Lynda Liquorice!
The Sweet Treat Eaters are a pair of monsters that never miss a trick (or treat) when it comes to candy! They love it, and will often be found cramming as much into their mouths as they possibly can – these guys should defiantly be handled with scare!
These cute little monsters are a combination of storage and amigurumi pattern that would make a fun addition to Halloween or for a little (or big) monsters bedroom.
The pattern is now available, from all my usual pattern stores, for you to make your own monsters.
I used a combination of yarns for my monsters. I used Scheepjes Stone Washed XL for the main body and tail with a 5mm / US size H hook (so that works up quite quickly) then I used Scheepjes Catona, with a 3mm / US size approx. D3, hook in complimentary colours for the other features.
The pattern is 5 pages long and it’s written, as usual, in both UK and US terms. It was nice to see the folks at the Crochet Sanctuary who were both intermediate and beginners to amigurumi enjoying the pattern. Though if you are a beginner and would like to give this pattern a go you might want to familiarise yourself with working in rounds in the amigurumi style before you start.

As always my time at the Crochet Sanctuary was wonderful weekend where I was able to catch up with old friends and make some new ones! If you are looking for a weekend of yarn, crochet and just pure wonderfulness then I can’t recommend the The Crochet Sanctuary enough! I’m looking forward to my next visit as a guest this October – I can’t wait!
If you like this pattern please give it a love, or leave a comment or review on the platform you got it from when you’ve made it up, as a small biz all support and shares are very much appreciated! I hope you’ll share any finished photos with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram) or as a project on Ravelry – I love to see what you make!
