Well, since you asked so nicely Smiley

I can't remember the exact stitch amounts because I already gave it to her, but I think I started out with about 30 stitches, all garter all the way. Then, every row I increased at the second to the last stitch until I had about 46 or so. I stayed there for maybe four rows, and then decreased in the same way. When I got back to 30 stitches, I did the scarf proper. When I got it to about the right length, I worked the head the same way at the other end. I used a crochet hook to sort of "embroider" the eyes on, and then each of the tentacles is three strands, and braided them and knotted them at the end so that the homespun didn't fray and the tentacles stayed together. And that's about it.

Wow, thanks! That is an awesome collection of Cthulu-y goodness.

Oh wow, what an excellent idea!  Can you imagine someone asking you what the scarf was supposed to be and answering, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!"  I mean, y'know...  if you could pronounce it....  *strains to find vowels in the words*
