Crochet Minion Pattern – My Minion Story

My first ever minion hand crocheted with Lily Sugar n Cream 100% cotton.

My first completed crochet minion was inspired by watching Despicable Me the movie!  This movie not only appeals to children, most adults I know, enjoyed it very much.  Looking for a new project to complete,  I found the colours needed in my spare bin of Lily Sugar n Cream cotton, which by the way is excellent yarn to crochet toys with…..and started to think of a design similar to the character in the movie.

The body was the easy part, along with his overalls.  The eye was also very easy to do, but the legs and arms were a little more difficult. Finally after a few hours of trying a few different ways, I finished my minion.
