Friendly Baby Frankenstein’s Monster
"The Friendly Baby Frankenstein’s Monster has arms reached out for hugs and friendship, and is a great size for little hands to play with. I am a huge fan of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. I remember reading it for the first time in high school and being blown away that a young girl just a few years older than me had written it. Since my first reading, I’ve returned to it several times. (By the way, if you want to dive into another Mary Shelley book, I recommend The Last Man.) But, I’m a huge fan of the classic Hollywood Frankenstein’s monsters, too! It’s those iconic film images that have shaped what we imagine when we think about Halloween monsters. When I saw these colors in King Cole Big Value Chunky yarn, I felt like I just had to make my own crochet Frankenstein."
