Another week, another Cthulhu scarf. The last time I wrote about a Cthulhu item, Eileen asked me what the heck a Cthulhu was! LOL. Cthulhu is so well known in our house that I forget that it’s a geek thang and not everyone knows what it is. Cthulhu is from H.P. Lovecraft’s “Call of Cthulhu” story. It’s basically a greenish monster, with tentacles, that is scaly and creepy looking.
For those of you unfamiliar with Cthulhu, here’s a video that shows some of the pictures illustrated over the years. It’s set to the “Hey There Delilah” music:
And yet, when you crochet a Cthulhu it just looks so darn cute! This scarf is slightly different than the Cthulhu Fireworm scarf in that the tentacles are on the front and it has green cat eyes. (It’s all in the subtle details when it comes to Cthulhu!) You’ll notice I left the “wings” off the scarf. (Cthulhu always has wings.) I decided for this flat piece that the wings would look too much like ears, so I left them off. The color, eyes, and tentacles are key to any Cthulhu project, plus I wanted this one to look fun for kids.
This scarf was crocheted with worsted weight yarn and Daria cat eyes.
Here are some more pictures:
