Of course, the purple one looks like she beheaded a Muppet and is parading it’s head on a pike, but still, pretty unassuming.

Yes, now you too can knit up a yarn monstrosity of your very own!
Because, let’s face it, you didn’t want to ever sleep again, did you?

(And yes, that is the full pattern for you to enjoy.
Please, if you make one of these things, post a picture for me to cherish.)
