Here's the newest seafaring creature to grace the halls and NOT the kitchen of LabLinoleum, Crabius Maximus!
This crab is definitely king, sporting 600 yards of single crocheted Cascade 220 and measuring about 30 inches in diameter (tip of claw to tip of claw). He's constructed in two parts (top shell, and underside with appendages) which are sewn together upon completion.
Building on the lessons learned regarding segmented crocheted scorpion claws, I was able to perfect the process while practicing on this guy's ten appendages.
I think there may some themed crabs in the future...
As such, this pattern is definitely one I will build upon in creatures to come.
Speaking of patterns, I am in the final stages of pattern testing the jellyfish. So folks, get your hooks and your Koigu ready for action!
