Here is the third Creepy Crochet Creatures I have made which were taken from a pattern in the book "Creepy Cute Crochet" by Christen Haden. The patterns can sometimes be a little challenging to navigate, so I would recommend them to more advanced folks. They crochet up pretty quickly and make great gifts for goth friends and Twilight fans.  Cheesy   Enjoy!

I was trying to figure out why you named it Nosferatu, because I looked at the picture and I immediately thought of Big Boo from Mario! Haha, but now I totally get it, vampire. Anyway, these look nice!

I'm actually going to make something from it today for my friend's birthday.  She's goth at heart  Smiley

That is so cute! =D
Ironically, I bought the very same book yesterday :]
I tried making the ninja... It came out more penguin-esque XD
I also attempted the devil, but on row five of the head I still had 17 stitches and I couldn't figure out why...

If you have any suggestions, please help. Cheesy


You have to make the amazon chick XD

Yeah, the amazon chick looks fun! Maybe she'll be next. Actually, I ran into a similar problem with all of the patterns. I ended up with more or less stitches than I was supposed to have. I think it might have something to do with sc in the same space at the beginning of a row, but I'm not sure. I just make up for it by inc or dec to get the number of sts I needed. In order to plan it out, I made sure to count each st as I made it. Making up for lost or gained sts didn't seem to hurt the figure too much. :0) Hope this helped! and good luck!

Ahh it does help! I had the same problem actually, not being sure which stitch to start on... but somehow I kept coming out with the correct number at the end of the row anyway. I was afraid increasing too much where it wasn't called for might throw off the end result, but if you think it doesn't affect too much, I'll give it another go :3 I think it's just the stitches around the devil's horns that confused me.


Didn't mean to type so much xD

Thanks for your help. If I get it done I'll post a picture. =P
