Get Your Own Cuddly Cthulhu!

Following up on the two other Lovecraftian posts (del Toro movie and podcast) I felt it was about time I did this post about Cthulhu Chick.  Ruth makes these adorable and abominable crocheted Cthulhu!  I plan on getting one for me (pink of course) and my brother since we both love us some H.P. Lovecraft.

Don’t know what a Cthulhu is? Cthulhu Chick explains it for you on her site,

“…In essence, Cthulhu is a creature dreamed up by H.P. Lovecraft in his tale “Call of Cthulhu.” From the story:

“If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.”

Cthulhu caught on in cultural consciousness, especially among geeks and gamers. The Call of Cthulhu RPG has become particularly popular as has the Cthulhu Munchkin game and the Call of Cthulhu video game.”

These cute little creatures cost $17.50 and are all handmade you can get yours on her Etsy page and follow her on Twitter @CthulhuChick.  Also I discovered this Cthulhu emotion while getting lost in google  (;,;) how cute!

  1. Thanks for the spotlight! :) I’m so glad you like them. I stumbled across the pattern when I first started reading Lovecraft last year & they’re a ton of fun to make. Plus the people who buy them tend to send in pics & even little photo stories, which makes it even more fun.
