Just in time for Valentine's Day, I've created a pattern for this cute little couple. It's available on my blog at http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

A couple of months ago I made my boyfriend this dark green cthulhu, and he insisted that it needed a girlfriend cthulhu to go with it. My boyfriend did the stuffing and I did the crocheting...

Thanks for looking!
Amber

I am sure these would go over well with gamers.....you might have a thriving cottage industry with a little effort.

How did you do the wings?  I can't do a decent wing shape to save my life.

The wings come from this pattern for a flying pig:

http://www.allfreecrafts.com/crochet/pig.shtml

and I've altered them slightly to this (changes only in the last step):

Wings:

Ch 4. Turn and do 1 sc in each of next 3 ch sps. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc, ch 3. turn. 3 sc on chain, 3 hdc on the three sc. Ch1, turn. 3 sc, ch 4., 3 sc in chain, 3 hdc. Ch1, turn. 4 sc, ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc in ch, 3 hdc, Ch 1, 4 sc, Ch 6, sl st in 2nd Ch from hook, sc 4, hdc 3, ch 3 *Work appox. 8 dc down the edge of wing opposite the feather ends. Sl St into first Ch, or near first Ch. Fasten off.

I got really confused by the wording "opposite the feather end" but what it means is the top of the wing. If you hold the wing so that the spikey bits face downward, then it's along the wobbly top line that you want to put that last row of dc's

The way this pattern repeats, just adding a new Ch each round, etc. it's very easy to make the wings longer/shorter or narrower/wider to suit the size of your amigurumi. For the boy Cthuhlu I didn't do the last row of dc's so his wings are narrower, but they also keep trying to curl in on themselves. It's that last row along the top that makes everything lay flat.
