Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins: Cuddly Cthulhu with Free Pattern!

Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins: Cuddly Cthulhu with Free Pattern!
Welcome one and all to the 200th post at Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins. Thank you everyone for being here, especially those of you who are long time readers of the blog, and especially those of you who have taken the time to post comments or share pictures of things you've made with my patterns. I've always told myself that I'd keep the blog going as long as it was still fun (and didn't start to feel like work) Now, here we are at 200 posts, 330,486 visitors (the current count while I'm typing this) and it's still fun! I wanted to go back to the beginning and do something special for this landmark post, so I decided it was time to revisit cthulhu patterns. Don't get me wrong, I love my previous incarnations of cthulhu, but I've always wanted to try for one with a more pear shaped head. Something a bit more accurate to illustrations I've seen such as this one. Cuddly Cthulhu Pattern Materials The head directions have now been changed from Rnd 8 onwards to the end of the head. Wings (make 2)

Cutest Little Sperm Whale - Pops de Milk It seems that after making the giant squid I fell into a sort of obsession with wanting to make more sea creatures. I think maybe it has to do with our recent trip to Hawaii. We stayed on the Big Island for ten days and for ten days we were in the water swimming, snorkelling, and scuba diving (Jay, not me, I’m still a little freaked out by the whole thing).

Mandrake pattern by Maffers Behold the mandrake, a peculiar plant of arcane origins. Many mandrakes spend their lives in mystical servitude, being fed the milk of a cow and swaddled in a dead man’s shroud to bring magical might to their master. Others sprout at the feet of the hanged on the spot where the deceased’s essence has fertilised the soil.

Tunisian Double Crochet Knit Stitch by M. J. Joachim Free Crochet Pattern – Easy Laptop / iPhone Sleeve « Roses n Lilies My man needed a sleeve for his new 11 inch netbook. After searching the net for a pattern, I came to the conclusion that there really isn’t much of a pattern to making a laptop sleeve, so I tried my hand at making one free hand. Of everything I’ve ever crocheted, this is one of the easiest things I’ve ever made! :)

Amigurumi Minecraft Creeper Pattern That's a very nice everything you have there... I whipped up an amigurumi Minecraft Creeper due in part to the frequency of the request, my kid’s obsession with Minecraft and the general awesomeness of Creepers themselves. Unfortunately the construct wasn’t all that easy to come up with since the character is blockish and pixelated, two things very difficult to pull off with amigurumi worked in the round. I cringed at the thought of sewing multiple panels together and I am not a fan of the alternating stripes of texture made when squares are worked by turning the work every row, so it took some reworkings and multiple attempts frogged but ultimately the shape came together nicely enough. Crochet Valentines for Your Sweethearts Do you want to send your friends and family something special for Valentine’s Day? Crochet valentines / hearts. I used a modified version of the heart pattern found in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Crochet Today. The crochet hearts in the magazine are coasters. They are larger (12 rows and edging) and do not include a hole in the center.

Crocheterie: Crochet Cute Little Flower - Free Pattern Crochet Cute Little Flower Pattern Designed by crocheterie Skill level: Easy Giant Amigurumi Octopus! June 3, 2013 As I mentioned before, JoAnn’s sent me their new Cape Discovery catalog, which features 72 projects perfect for kids & teens to make as Summer projects! They asked me to make a project from the catalog and this crochet octopus just looked way too awesome to pass up! If you’d like to make your own, you can find the free pattern right here! They encouraged me to add my own twist to the project so I made a few modifications. First of all, I used Caron Simply Soft (pagoda & passion) & Bernat Satin (aqua) rather than the yarns the pattern recommended.
