Shop Talk: Cute’thulhu!

10 Dec

Hey All! I’m really happy to talk to you about my favorite cute little star-spawn:

Cute'thulhu!

Cute’thulhu!

Cute’thulhu is my first foray in to crochet amigurumi design. A couple of years ago, after making a crocheted C’thulhu from a pattern, I thought a smaller-shaped C’thulhu would be even more adorable. I couldn’t find a pattern, so I decided to create my own! After some experimenting, I came up with teeny little Cute’thulhu.

He has three little face tentacles, teeny little arm flaps, and a set of itty bitty wings!

He’s about 3.5″ tall, though he’s a bit squish-able and can be slightly flattened or pulled up slightly taller. I used acrylic yarn and hard plastic safety cat eyes, and stuffed him with poly-fil.

I love this little guy so much! When I first created him, I took a bunch of random pics of him around the house.

In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cute'thulhu waits dreaming.

Crocheting his teeny little face tentacles with a teeny little crochet hook (I use a size C – 2.75 mm) is kind of a pain, so it takes a bit for me to be motivated to make a bunch of these. But for now, there’s a cute little green dude available in my shop: Cute’thulhu – cute teeny C’thulhu amigurumi.
