An Original Cthulhu Toque, and Now Selling

Posted in Knit & Crochet , on March 24, 2009 , 10 Comments

As if I didn’t have a crafty enough weekend, I started working on a new design: a crochet Cthulhu toque!

I’m suddenly obsessed with this cute tentacled creature and envisioned a toque (hat!) of one. I did some searching but didn’t find anything like it out there. I found some sewn fleece Cthulhu hats, some knitted ones that have a tentacled Cthulhu shape repeated as a band across the hat, and even a full facemask that transforms the wearer into Cthulhu with a tentacle beard, but nothing quite like this. So I decided to make my own!

The Cthulhu toque design took quite a lot of pulling out stitches and reworking rows until I got it just the way I wanted, but I’m really happy with the turnout. Special thank you to my wonderful husband for his feedback along the way.  It’s my first toque design period!  This and toques like it are now for sale at The Pink Toque Shop!

Speaking of which, in 2009 I decided to switch my shop to a host other than Etsy and all Cthulhu purchases can be done at The Pink Toque Shop instead. The shop should be fully stocked unless I have too many orders going at once, so be patient if things are sold out; I’ll add more as my schedule frees up.

I sure am enjoying having a little bit of extra time this spring break for crafting! :) Happy sales <3 (I hope)
