I have been asked to crochet a lot of different things over the past few years, but this was a first. Here is Baba Yaga, a fairly nasty witch from the other side of the world, and her house, which stands on chicken legs. If you don’t know about Baba Yaga, I’ll sum her up like this: She eats children (you know, when she can get them), and she flies around in a mortar. Don’t ask me how a mortar can fly. I just work here.
Here is the iconic chicken house, sitting down for a coffee break, and next is Baba Yaga in all her terrible glory.
If you’re wondering why Baba Yaga is so big in relation to her house, most of the folklorists tell us that Baba Yaga basically fills up the entire interior of her hut when she lays down to sleep. So there you go.
As you may have gathered, I do take commissions, so if there’s something I can crochet for you, give a holler!
