Albert the Absent-Minded Monster
Short Description: This knitting pattern will show you how to knit Albert the Absent-Minded Monster, my original design. This is a quick, easy, satisfying project that knits up quickly on many yarn/needle combinations. Since it takes about 50-75 yards of yarn to knit Albert, this is a great one-skein, stash busting, or scrap yarn project. This pattern is very addicting and you will find yourself knitting a whole basket full of monsters!
