Mel the Monster is a member of the Slumber Party gang. The machine washable cover fits a standard bed pillow and is knit out soft and fluffy Plymouth Yarn Heaven. The eyes are knit in intarsia with the fangs added afterwards and the horns, tail and feet are knit separately and sewn into the seams when the pillow is assembled. Large yarn and needles make this a quick knit and a much hugged companion.

Approximate yardage:
385 yards of Heaven for body, tail and feet
40 yards of Encore Mega for eyes, fangs and claws
10 yards of Encore Mega for eyes and horns
