Eyes and teeth for Grumpybum Monsterlongies

Pin It
Several people have asked me to post a pattern for eyes and teeth for the Grumpybum Monster longie, so here goes :-). The eyes and teeth are sewn on using duplicate stitches. Google it :-).

  1. My mother in law knots and is attempting to make these for my daughter. She is a little confused about the instructions after the mouth.

    "Change back to C1.
    K 4 rounds. On the last round PM A after 21 (23) stitches, PM B after 4 (4) stitches, PM C after 42 (46) stitches, and PM D after 4 (4) stitches."

    She is wondering what PM A, PM B, PM C and PM D are.

    1. Hi, and sorry for late reply. But, as someone already has pointed out, PM means place marker. So, after 21/23 stitches you will place your first marker (A), then you will knit 4 more stitches before placing another marker (B), and so on... Good luck :-)

    2. I would love to knit the pants you have on your site except after " C1 " I get lost with all those letters....what do those abbreviations stand for ?

    3. If you do a google search for knitting abbreviations several sites have a complete list. C# usually means color 1, color 2 and so on.

  2. PM usually means 'place marker'. so she would end up with 4 markers to knit between

  3. Do you knit the eyes and teeth separately, and then sew them on as appliques? You do not knit them into the pattern as you are knitting the pants?

    1. Sew them as if you were doing needle point...just follow the direction of the knitted stiches

  4. Use this link to learn how to use duplicate stitch to add the eyes and teeth. You do it directly on the pants.

  5. Can you tell me what length of circular needles you need? Mine seem very long. Can I still use them? I can't figure out how to join the circle.

    1. I used 24" and they worked great. If the length is too long you can't join. I haven't got to the legs yet, but I might need a shorter length for those, or double pointed needles.

    2. Look on You Tube as to how to use "the magic loop" with circular needles.
