ADDED 11/13/09: YOUTH SIZING! You can now make newborn, toddler, and child sizes of my Cthulhu toque along with the adult size from the same pattern. It’s like 2 patterns in 1!

This is an original Cthulhu crochet toque design I created in March 2009. I’d seen lots of fleece Cthulhu toques out there and the knitted/crochet versions I was finding were just patterns of Cthulhu heads across the hat like a band, but nothing with actual tentacles and eyes to look like Cthulhu himself. Also a completely different headgear design from a full bearded facemask that turns the wearer into a Cthulhu. Instead of being a facemask, this is a true toque that produces a Cthulhu creature with eyes, wings and tentacles on top of the wearer’s head beanie style.

Adult: M, L, and XL
Youth: newborn, toddler, and child


  • 1 skein of worsted weight or sport-weight wool or acrylic, green
  • Size I or H hook (or size to obtain gauge. Size I for sport-weight, H for worsted)
  • Safety eyes, buttons, felt or black embroidery floss for eyes
  • Darning needle
  • Stitch marker

Approximately 4 single crochet stitches = 1” in worsted weight.

Stitches and Terms Used

  • chain (ch)
  • single crochet (sc)
  • double crochet (dc)
  • slip stitch (sl st)
  • half double crochet (hdc) This is considered easy enough for beginners!
