i started doing a bit of research on cthulu.  he seems to be a pretty popular guy to crochet.  now i have developed quite a fondness of him!  playing the new metallica guitar hero fueled my new found adoration (they have a stage in the game where you play a song ABOUT chtulu [the thing that should not be] FOR cthulu).  so i picked up creepy cute crochet.  awesome book, by the way.  and here's the fruit of my labor.  i finished him in one night because i got so into it.  WOOT LATE NIGHT CRAFTING!!!

he's made of red heart super saver acrylic yarn with sculpey polymer clay eyes.  fabri-tac glue is amazing for gluing eyes onto amigurumi.

here's pics:

Hee!

I love his angry little eyes. I have a crochet cthulhu too, I used the Tiny Cthulhu pattern from http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com.

I've been thinking about getting creepy cute crochet, would you reccommend it?

oh yeah, i'd definitely recommend creepy cute crochet.  that book is awesome!  the instructions are pretty clear, and they have a lot of great ideas in there.  they also give you a lot of basic stuff so you can make your own custom amigurimi from their basic patterns.  my next projects using creepy cute crochet are making my favorite players from the cleveland cavaliers, and the kids from south park.

It looks great!

I have Creepy Cute, too but havn't really completed any of the projects. I find that for some of the dolls the accoutrements (like cthulu's tentacles, for example) are a little confusing for a relatively new crocheter like myself. Also, if you are unfamiliar with circular crocheting that isn't a spiral that can be a little confusing, too. There is a good variety of difficulties, though. The ninja and the grim reaper are pretty easy, those are the two that I have tried. I would suggest using something to weigh the bottom of the body as the book suggests, or you will have to hang them because they don't sit up.

I still enjoy the book; if nothing else it is great for inspiration.
