Here comes last minute Halloween knit ideas! Well, you know Halloween usually full of scary stuffs, but what if you don’t want it to be too scary for the little ones? Try knitting cute candy floss monster, it’s cuddly and adorable (and you can also teach the kids not to forget brushing their teeth or candy floss monster will come and get them!). This cotton candy floss monster knitting pattern is very easy to make.

For the mouth, I use garter stitch and different yarn to highlight it. The mouth is knitted in one go as you are knitting the body (yeap, it saves time and headache from having to embroidery later on)

For the yarn, I chose Lincraft Entice for the main body and pink non hairy yarn for the mouth to give it contrast. I just love love LOVE

. It’s soo soft to the touch and has the hairy look fitting for candy floss and monster (Rawr!) If you are making this for babies, please check the yarn is safe as I couldn’t find any information online whether this yarn will be suitable for baby or not.

I have included 2 instructions, one to knit on straight needles or to knit in the round. You can choose whichever you want to do. Obviously, the advantage of knitting in the round is that you have less seaming to do in the end, thus you finish quicker ;) . But if you are just starting out, you may want to try knitting in straight needles as it’s very easy to do!
