Just throwing it out there...

I saw this picture yesterday and thought it would make a really neat plush project. Most deep sea creatures make for excellent plush inspiration, it seems, but this one was too good not to share. It's a yeti crab! What an apt nickname.



You can read more about them here, if you're interested.

It's already been done!

The original maker had a pattern up, too. The mediatinker site seems to be gone, but here it is at whipup:
