The Best Amigurumi Octopus Patterns

Octopus, octopuses, or octopi? However you are trying to name it, they still remain one of the most favourite animals of amigurumi crocheters. Simple shape and long “legs” make it very easy to transform into a soft toy, so be sure to try it.

Today’s collection features three ideas that use basic amigurumi and curly cue techniques. Affing little details like a tophat, ruffles, or tiny heart buttons is great! What’s more, it will make the design truly unique. You can also crochet little octopi and give it away for preemies in nearby hospitals, because that’s what crocheters do. Links to free patterns are avaliable under the pictures.
