This is the most frightening creature EVER!!!!!
….If you’re an ice cream cone.
This fellow is super nice but he devours frozen treats like.. well… a monster. Stands at 5 1/2 inches high. Crocheted using cotton candy light blue and sprinkled with dark blue berry polka dots. Eating a crocheted strawberry ice cream cone. Cute, slightly crazy, and as sweet as the ice cream, this is our Ice Cream Monster!

Feel like pretending you are some insane adorable wild creature in the middle of winter, but it’s too cold? FEAR NOT! We have a solution. As usual our solutions are made of yarn. Here it is, The Purple Creature Hat!
We enjoy inventing new creatures as much as celebrating our favorite real life ones. Here is the first of our “Creature Collection.” This hat is super warm, so it is sure to bring play-time back into your winter days.
Crocheted in the round using super soft fuzzy yarn. Purple hat, dark pink ears, and extra long ties. This hat is designed to rest right at your eyebrows for maximum warmth, and creature transformation. Enjoy!
New item for sale on Etsy!!!
Ok we admit it… We are on a fast track to being crazy old cat ladies one day. We are huge cat fans here at Green Elevator, so we couldn’t help making a Kitty Cat Hat.
This hat was crocheted in the round with super thick soft yarn, has extra long ties and tassels, with kitty ears. We thought it would be perfect for Halloween, or just fun to celebrate cats and cuteness any chilly day of the year!
Sneak peak of our new items before they go on sale. You can brag to your friends that you knew what Green Elevator had cookin’ before it was on the market. If that doesn’t score you some cool points, nothing will.
We would like to start out by saying… we are NOT cold weather fans. Seriously. Not at all. We both whine and complain from about October-April. However… In our great battle to defeat Jack Frost, we have a wonderful excuse to make millions of cute hats, scarves, mittens, sweaters and so on. Right now Steff is in the middle of an amazing complicated sweater. I am the child who never grew up, so I’m been making a series of themed hats. Our first to show… The Sea Monster Hat!
Loch Ness gave sea monsters such a bad reputation! Clearly, they’re a nice fun loving bunch. Care to join the party? This can be your official Sea Monster Hat to go play under the sea, dress up for Halloween, or enjoy any other chilly day of the year.
This hat was crocheted in the round with soft fuzzy aqua and purple yarn. The hat has dainty ear covers, and extra long ties and tassels at the end. Accented with a sea monster style and beads.

You may have noticed… Steff and I… not so great at in progress updates and pictures. We swear we’re trying to get better! To prove it here is a little guy that’s in process now:
Crocheted truck and three pom pom’s for the leaves – this little guy is on his way! Way to what.. I’m not sure. Right now I’m thinking of making a few crochet and non crochet tree jar pieces. I still can’t decide if I would want everything in the jar to be made of yarn or not for this tree. I don’t want it to be too yarny but I also don’t want the yarn to look out of place with some other material. Unfortunately, I haven’t been eating a lot of food that comes in jars lately, leaving my “art supplies” a little low. Spaghetti dinner anyone?
Speaking of trees… here is another piece I’ve been working on…forever…
I don’t even know if I want to talk about this one due to being so embarrassed that it’s STILL not done. It was a chicken wire frame… for months.. then it was a mod podge fabric decoupage trunk… for months… then I was super motivated! I hand cut and stitched all the leaves, glued/wired them on – and then!!!! I ran out of thread… lost my momentum… and there it sits. I plan to finish it soon though. Upon Steff’s suggestion I think I might make a preserved twig bonsai tree type base filled with moss to put it in.
PS – I love that you can see my awesome Martha Stewart Glitter in the background. yes!
I suffered for my art!!! By suffer, I mean got a bug bite in the park… By art, I mean yarn animals… By all of this, I mean we took new photos in the park!
This is our pretty pig. She prefers frolicking in fields of flowers over the laying around in the mud. She is crocheted from yarn with felt accents, and her flower garland is made from origami flowers and sealed with Mod Podge. For the rest of the photos click here.
At the moment this is an Unidentified Creature. Although he looks like he and the space hamster may have come from the same location… He is made from yarn with felt accents, wire, and yarn pom poms. What ever he is, I hope a merry little army of these guys takes over the world, then enforces their jolly way of life upon us. “You earthlings will be play games, sing songs, and dance! NOW!!! HAHAHAH!” For the rest of the photos click here.
All photos taken and enjoyed in Prospect Park.
