I have to let you in on a little secret of mine: I love Minions! As in ‘IwishIhadarealliveMinion’ toddling around the house! It’s been on my ToDo list for a while and when someone asked me if I could make one, the time was ripe for actually making one. None of the existing patterns matched the Minion I had in mind, so I began taking notes as I went along. The result is here for You to use – I hope You will love Stuart as much as I. Happy Hooking!
