Cathulhu Pattern

I decided to be punny the other day and make a Cathulhu, which is a cat and Cthulhu hybrid. Ooh, yes. I did just do that. Here's the pattern. :)
Cathulhu




Materials:
-Worsted Weight Yarn. I used Lily Sugar N' Cream Solids in Country Green. (Note: for my amigurumi, I always try to use cotton).

-polyfil stuffing
-polyfil beads (I used black eyed peas, which also work!)

Abbreviations:
sc- single crochet
inc – increase (2 sc in same stitch)
