Scrapmonster Pattern

SCRAPMONSTER
This pattern is so simple, I almost didn't bother posting it. Personally, I think there is room for MUCH improvement on this particular design. When I made it, I was just kind of flying by the seat of my pants. So, definitely feel free to experiment with this one. You will most likely end up with a better, or, at least more unique, finished product than the one in the photo here.


FINISHED SIZE: ~13 inches tall

MATERIALS:
(NOTE: This pattern is meant to allow you to use up leftover yarn - basically, it's meant to be that project that keeps you from needing to go to the store for more materials. However, for the sake of being as specific as possible in describing the pattern that resulted in the given photo, I have written the pattern up with the materials I used to create it.)
