There are quite a few of us making these cute little horrors from Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots and More!, so it's been suggested we have a crochet-along in the same way as the Amigurumi World one. So, no rules, no timing, just show us your makes (and moan about the patterns!).

Here are some of mine:

The Grim Reaper - minus scythe, that's tonight's job! I think he looks more like Munch's The Scream, but there you go...


Grim Reaper in the centre again now with scythe, Cthulhu on the right, and a little dude I more-or-less hijacked from Corporate Zombie - this is going to be a gift for a friend's birthday; we used to play AD&D back in the day and he has a little book and dice bag. He needs a haircut/ponytail making, though.

Currently working on a Knight, with a Princess (again, hijacked, this time from Skeleton Bride), a Cleric and Ninja on the drawing board...they're addictive, for sure, but I suggest you don't show the book to anyone until you've got comfortable with the patterns cos you'll be besiged with requests! Cheesy

Hope that's ok, never done one of these before...

EDT: to upload completed picture

I'm in! Assuming I can figure out the [email protected]#$%^& charts in the book. I do not chart-read good.

Count me in for something. Desk ninja? Maybe.

On a swapping hiatus due to college...

I'm in, but I need to upload the pics of the ones I've finished to craftster. I want to make a couple more too, but this week is devoted to a baby blanket (and playing the new Lego Indiana Jones game  Smiley) in my spare time.

I've started my own crochet blog, have a look...http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

I have started the amazon and I have to thank my friend for loaning me the book for the afternoon and reminding me about the thread....thanks NeedleNoodles for the quick tutorials. I should be able to get her finished this afternoon or evening...then I will post her up her..

I've made a few of these. 

I made the Cthulu (he was the whole reason I bought the book, actually.)

The Amazon

The Monkey (I was away from home, without any red yarn or gold embroidery floss, so I'm not entirely happy with how this one came out.)

And using the Cthulu and Corporate Zombie patterns, plus a little inovation of my own, I made Dr. Zoidberg!

I also made a purple devil and the ninja, but I gave them away before I got a chance to take photos, sadly.

Fab Zoidberg  Grin Well done!

I love how adaptable these patterns are, you can just run away with your own ideas. Here are my latest...

A Knight needs his Lady, doesn't he? The Princess was adapted from the Skeleton Bride pattern. Was well-chuffed to get the hair right, cheers for the extra tutorial NeedleNoodles. Smiley

And a rear-view of the princess so you can see her hair and veil in all it's glory.

She is a *little* top-heavy - she stands up fine but I think I need to work on the hat a bit, it's not as narrow as I would have liked it.

i LOVE that zoidberg! love love love!

i bought this book last week and haven't made anything yet- methinks i will have a go at the ninja.

is it any coincidence that the word yearn is one letter away from being yarn?
