Watch the New Alien: Covenant Trailer, Then Crochet Your Own Xenomorph

Dangerously adorable.


First you need to watch the latest ominous Alien: Convenant trailer. Then it’s time to move on to the next stage of processing a myriad of Alien emotions: crafting.

The new trailer is a deep dive into the (extraterrestrial) world of Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, which centers around the first “large-scale colonization mission.” Crucial points of note: Michael Fassbender wears a badass trapper hat! Fantastic Beasts’ Katherine Waterston rocks a major Ripley vibe and haircut! Something goes wrong! (It’s aliens.) Generally my excitement is abounding about this trailer, which ends with a Xenomorphic bang.


What to do while waiting for Alien: Covenant to emerge on May 19th? Perhaps you will be inspired to channel your feelings into crochet when you see the cuddly Xenomorph created by artist Krawka Crochet. They’re selling the Xenomorph crochet pattern, alongside other geek-friendly crocheted friends to create.

Who hasn’t wanted to snuggle up with their very own Xenomorph at night? And Ridley Scott, if you’re out there: we wouldn’t say no to a replica of those hats.
