Since i found this http://allaboutami.tumblr.com/post/11585794742/minionpattern i had to make one. I think the Creator is Awesome 🙂
i soon found my self making many more.
i didn’t use button’s for this Super Girl Minion.
i will note : i used Pipe cleaners for the arms. folded a jumbo pipe cleaner, they helped a lot.
I did change the pattern of the feet i didn’t like the way it was made, and i made my pockets one row bigger to make sure my Gru sign fit.
Since i don’t really use plastic eyes and what not. I would rather made them. I did.
Here is a close up of the Eye.
What you will need~
Black, White, and Brown, Light Blue.
very little yarn used in these parts.
worst weight yarn.
Stitches Used ~
sl st~ slip stitch
sc~ single crochet
sc2tog~ decrease 2 sts together.
In Black~ Magic ring, 5 sc in ring. sl st to 1st st. cut weave in ends now or at end of eye.
In Brown~ sl st on, in same place 2 sc, 2 sc each st around 10 sts total. sl st to 1st st. cut, weave in ends.
In White~ sl st on sc in same st, 2 sc in next st, *repeat sc next st, 2 sc next st.* sl st to 1st one,
ch 1, work one last row if you want your eye big.
or cut now. leaving along tail to sew with.
last row eye, sc next 2, 2 sc, around sl st cut leave long tail to sew with.
i hope this helps some one with the eye not put in this free pattern link above.
ok Next i had to make a mouth. so…………. you guessed it.
Here it is.
now the mouth seem simple enough but was not sure about how to get the teeth to look the way i wanted well as it turns out there happen tp be a Corner to Corner Craze going on and yep i used the stitch to make that happen 🙂 lol
ok Here it is….
Mouth 1~ Big laughing mouth. In Black~
Row 1) Magic ring, 5 sc, do NOT JOIN with a sl st. pull loop to tighten up ring.
Row 2) 2 sc each st 10 sc total
Row 3) sc, 2 sc next st around.
Row 4) sc next 2 sts, 2 sc next st, around.
Row 5) sc next 3 sts, 2 sc next st, around.

you can make this a row or 2 shorter as well.
Mouth 2~ In Black~
Row 1) Magic Ring, 4 sc in ring. do NOT JOIN with a sl st. pull loop to tighten up ring.
Row 2) 2 sc each st around 8 sc total.

Row 4) sc next 2, 2 sc next st, around,
Row 5) sc next 3, 2 sc next st, around. Cut leave long tail to sew with.
Teeth~ in White~ the way this works a ” Tooth is made in 2 chains” With a Cluster St. of only 2.
For 6 teeth~ using a Cluster stitch of 2 to make your tooth.
ch 15, work cluster st in 4th and 5th from hook, ch 2, sl st in last st made,* ch 2, work cluster st in next 2 sts, ch 2, sl st in last st made.* repeat to end. leave long tail to sew with.
4 teeth~ ch 8, plus your chain 3 = 11 total. for your 4 teeth.
sew middle of teeth just above mouth so the teeth are over the mouth edge before sewing mouth to Body as well as tongue.
Tongue~ in Red~
Ch 7, work cluster st, in 4th and 5th from hook, ch 2, sl st to last st, ch 2, work cluster st in last 2. ch 2, sl st to last st. Cut, leave tail to sew with sew to mouth before mouth is sewed to body.
Since i am a lefty, i made this 2 ways so you don’t have to use the back side.
i think #1 is Right Handed. and other Left Handed since it worked well for me and the other was backwards to me.
Gru sign #1 Right Handed.
Light Blue~ magic ring ch 2, 4 sc, ch 1,
4 sc ch 1,
4 sc ch 1,
3 sc, hdc, ch 3, sl st to ring. Cut, leave long tail to sew with. slowly pull your magic ring now not too much. weave in this end.
Gru sign #2 Left Handed.
Light Blue~ (lefty)
magic ring ch 3, hdc, 3 sc,
ch 1, 4 sc,
ch 1, 4 sc,
ch 1, 4 sc, ch 2, sl st to ring Cut, leave long tail to sew with.
slowly pull your magic ring now not too much. weave in this end.
you will want to check it against, your pocket, make sure your “G” sign is centered and just inside your yellow Dash Line.
After sewing this G on,
use some Black~ and just out line the G out side edge and in center using the yarn to work over the center to hold the blue thread and cover it, and define your G<~ line better.
all this done before pocket is sewed down to overall’s.
My adventures not over yet. i am still making more.
I have made a shorter chubbier~~ one all i did there was ~
Increase the Round 2 more Rows.
( in other words i increased the head 2 rows from the last increase at 7 sc, 2 sc in the next st, around to = 9 sc, 2 sc in the next st. i added 2 more rows.)
then~ i decreased the 55 Rows of sc, by only 5 rows. then worked as you would to close.
nothing any different other than i used~ Mouth 2 for Chubbier minion. it’s just a better one.
i hope this helps some one making their minions.
We all need a little help.
