Alright, honestly I've never even SEEN an H.P. Lovecraft book. But my friend adores them, sooo I made her a kinda-sorta-amigurumi-but-not-really Cthulhu, modeled after the existing plushies, but other then that, I had nooo idea what I was doing and just made it up as I went along. I like how it turned out, but his feet are just bizarre.

A crocheted Cthulhu is awesome on so many levels, your friend will adore him! How did you do the tentacles, sewing them all on at the end seems like it'd be a lot of work, is there another way that you did it?

Rheatheylia, I think that  I made one, put it on one length of yarn, finished all the others and did the same, so I had them on this string jut to keep track of them... then I actually crocheted them onto the head, and pulled the string out. I think, don't really remember...  Embarrassed
