FREE crochet GIR pattern

Doom Doom Doom Doom
ok I know other people have made a crochet Gir but I haven't been able to find a pattern. Plus I'm never happy unless I do it myself. DIY all the way. so here are some pics. I didn't have the lighter grey that is why he looks a bit dark.



This is the 2nd Gir I made. I made the shoulders bigger, I crocheted around the feet, & I found some grey yarn that was the perfect color :) The pattern below has all the changes in it.

ok you want the pattern??

ok here ya go:

I squealed with delight when I saw this pattern, and I came here on a diagonal because I was following a link for your Jack Skellington pattern. I think I'm in love with your tastes. And as a beginning crocheter (two months) I'm just happy to have someone else's patterns to follow while I try to get some proficiency. Since the past week has seen me make Cthulhu, a beholder, and Spider Jerusalem, these will follow the pattern nicely.

I'll post pictures when I have them done.

I finished it. It's anything but perfect, but that's all my fault. Still, thanks for the pattern. I'll try it again when I have the right color of gray, though.

My hubby's been begging me for a Gir. I just haven't had the time with all my other projects to work a pattern up on my own. Boy oh boy is he gonna be surprised come Christmas morn! THANKS!!!!! (I'll try to post my pic when done.)

AprilDraven said...

lol can't wait to see it :)

Mir said...

Rather than crochet around the head and feet once they're done wouldn't simply crocheting through the back loops for a round during construction achieve the same effect? I'm going to try it... we'll see. Would you suggest on the fifth or sixth round of the head?

ckellyireland7 said...

OMG! U rock :) Seriously just made my day here!

AprilDraven said...

MIR: let me know if that works out :)

Nora said...

I love it!! I post the finish Gir I did on facebook and now all my friends want me to make one for them!!

Erica said...

Hey did you know if you do the main body in green then do the arms and legs in black and make ears and a zipper then he is the dog version of gir... i made three of them, one went to my mom one went to her friend and then i got one. thanks for the idea

Sweetie's_Sweets said...
