An octopus and a rainbow all at once!

Crochet now your own rainbow octopus with our new Amination pattern!

The tentacles are crocheted onto the body, so that they can spread while at rest!

Materials you’ll need;

  • 75m (80yards) worsted weight yarn in BODY colour
  • 8 x 12m (13yards) worsted weight yarn for each RAINBOW colour (8 in total)
  • 6m (7yards) worsted weight yarn in WHITE
  • Two 12mm black safety eyes
  • 2-3 handfuls of polyester stuffing
  • Tapestry needle, stitch marker, scissors

This is a pattern of intermediate difficulty. You’ll need to know how to;

  • Single crochet (increase and decrease)
  • Crochet on the back, front or both loops
  • Make colour changes
  • Crochet pieces together (no sewing for the tentacles!)

The pattern features;

  • Progress photos of each finished item
  • Photo tutorials for tricky parts and assembly
  • Text-only pdf file for eco-friendly printing

This pattern doesn’t include instructions for basic stitches, but helpful video tutorial links are provided.
