Octopus Pattern

Regular price $3.49

This adorable crochet octopus is a classic!  A newborn baby can sink his/her tiny hands into those little curly tendrils and be comforted!  Make in cotton yarn to hold up to repeated washing and consider embroidering the eyes instead, if making for the littlest of littles.

Awesome pattern!

I made one of these for my first grandchild, a girl. My daughter loved it and so did my granddaughter. It then got handed down to my next granddaughter. Now I'm about to have my fourth grandchild and thought I want to make this for him. Thank you for a wonderful pattern! I'm going to start making these for the local hospital to give out to the nicu babies.

Well-written pattern

I really enjoyed making this little octopus toy for my first great grandchild. The pattern was well-written and easy to follow. I highly recommend using a stitch marker to help you keep track of each round.

Octopus pattern

Very happy with pattern and resulting octopus. I’ve never followed a crochet pattern before, but after a little research was able to work it out. Now I have to find out who to donate too and find cotton baby wool.

Quick & Easy!

This pattern was easy to read and worked up quickly. I enjoyed it quite a bit and ended up making half a dozen in no time at all.

Cute and fun to make

I have made two octopi, the pattern was easy to execute and looks cute. Haven't tried embroidering the face yet. They are for my daughter's preemie foster children. I will be making several more!
