  • Step 1

    Special Stitches

    In the pattern I’m going to call the Cthulhu’s tentacles a coil. When you see coil, do this:

    coil: chain 9, 3 sc in third chain space from hook, 3 sc in each of next six spaces.

    If you find the chain spaces too small to work 3 single crochets in, try making the chain with a hook that’s one size larger.

  • Step 2

    Head and Body (worked as one piece, starting with head)

    6 sc in a magic ring
    RND 1: work 2 sc in each st around. (12 stitches)
    RND 2: *sc in first st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat around (18 stitches)
    RND 3: *sc in first 2 st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat around (24 stitches)
    RND 4: *sc in first 3 st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat around (30 stitches)

    RND 11: sc in each st around (42 stitches) Note: If you have less than 42 that’s okay because we’re about to start decreasing, if you have more than 42 go back and try to fix the problem.
    RND 12: *sc in first 5 st, dec in next st,* repeat around (36 stitches)
    RND 13: *sc in first 4 st, dec in next st,* repeat around (30 stitches)
