Daloki – Part 1: Worlds’ Crossing

Daloki Mauvais was 37 when she came to Hellifyno, a human with extraordinary mental powers.

So when I recently took up crocheting again, I was captivated to find patterns for Cthulhu amigurumi. This was unlike anything I’d ever done before, but I just had to make it.

I’ve just finished, and here he is, destined for my roleplaying friend known as Girlycard, aka Cecilia di Sighisoara Slayter:
