Sorry for the lack of post last week, I managed to break my ankle and have been a bit laid up with it. I am back this week with this super cute amigurumi crochet octopus toy! This pattern is by The Woolly Kraken, and is such fun to make.
I’d been following Nicole on Instagram and when I saw this little cutie pop up in her feed. It was love at first sight and I had to buy the pattern. After putting it to one side until I was able to find safety eyes in Australia, This week I was able to give it a go. The pattern calls for 4 ply wool, which I didn’t have, but I did have some lovely multi-colour chunky yarn that I’d picked up from Lincraft so decided I’d give it a go with that instead.
I am so happy with how he turned out, though I think I need to work on my smile sewing skills, lol! It’s hard to tell from this picture but he actually turned out quite a lot larger than the pattern intended because of the chunky yarn and 5mm hook. To give you a bit of perspective I took a few more pictures of me holding him!
Even though he is a little larger than intended, I love him! Suitable for Beginner to Intermediate crocheters, this pattern is easy to follow. If you have some experience crocheting in the round or with amigurumi it will help you!
I hope you give this cute little guy (or girl) a go, let me know how you go. I’d also love you to follow me on my socials: Insta, FB, Pinterest and BlogLovin.
