Cthulhu Amigurumi

About: Hello! I've been portrayed as a witty know it all who recognizes faces in movies, voices in songs, can beat my boyfriend in Call of Duty, Is a polygamist crocheter (meaning I never just work on project at a ...

Okay, here's the skivvies for the "Great Old One"

-He stands tall at a little over five inches

-Made with a lime green Worsted weight yarn
- I used a size G crochet hook

-He was crocheted in the round using a 4 sts magic ring for the head, and each arm

-the head, body, and feet were crocheted as one piece, the arms
and wings were made separately and sewn on.

-buttons were used for the eyes

-I made my little Cthulhu freehanded, But I have been informed that for the sake of not being called a cheat or liar, there is a written pattern available which is similar to what I have whipped up HERE
Again I did not use that pattern, this was freehanded.

Why I made him: I love mythical creatures, and had a friend that begged me to make her one. and  it took me two weeks of messing up, but it was worth frogging every time!

    You have made a very cute Cthulhu. I have run into your problem before. There are only so many ways to crochet a banana and it still look like a bananna. No offense taken and thank you for the link to my pattern. LOVE your Wookie...my boys are huge Star Wars fans. Keep on Hooking Jenni

    thank you! This means alot to me really. and you are very welcome! I had someone send me a not too nice, but not too mean message after making him and posting to another site, that I needed to clarify how I made him. I thought it would only be fair to post a link to your site since I did use yours as a reference. I'm working on a pattern for Chewbacca, and when its needing to be tested I'll be sure to let you know ;D thank you again for the nice comment! ^_^

    if you follow the link on my instructable, the woman who made the pattern I posted is really nice, and is willing to help if you need help in the process of making him.
