Once again, Creepy Cute Crochet by Christen ‘NeedleNoodles’ Haden. This time, Cthulhu! I had a Lovecraft phase as a teen and while his work does not hold up (overwrought prose and racism galore,) I still love creative people’s takes on the mythos. Particularly if Lovecraft would hate them. And so, have a horrifying eldritch priest in super cutesy form!
This is one of my first projects at Intermediate level, and my first time using triple crochet on the wings. It worked, and gives me some ideas for another project I’ve had shelved for a bit.
Before I learned to crochet, a friend of mine was making aliens from Christen Haden’s Creepy Cute Crochet, a book which I saw and instantly loved. It took me several years and a few tries to learn properly, but I am finally at a spot where I have the time and skill to make creatures from the book! Starting with Death. (I had the yarns out already from alien.) He is tiiiny, and I love him. But I’ll probably use medium weight yarn for the next one. Instead of using clay for the scythe I figured eh, I know how to crochet a scythe shape and sewed it on. There will, I am certain, be more from this book.
With rare bonus crafter! This was a long one – the UFO was over 100 stitches for each disc. Once again, the pattern is Lalylala’s Flying Saucer Musical Toy. I didn’t have the music maker, so instead it’s a hanging toy for a friend’s space-themed nursery. I love the little cow. And the alien. Both are fantastic.
So cute. (Pattern is Lalylala’s Alien Music Toy. Book below it is Amigurumi Monsters 2, which is completely unrelated but cute.)
