Ollie the Octopus has come to play!

Say Hi to Ollie the Octopus! Ollie was inspired into being by Liver Spot Lloyd. ;-) The mathematics is easy to understand.

Ollie also has a bit of a secret to share…it’s his mouth. His mouth can ‘hide’ things because it opens. Ollie the Octopus will bring hours of fun to your little ones. But watch out! Ollie the Octopus may hide your phone. Or your watch…maybe even your keys!

Ollie the Octopus is made using the split hdc. This is a stitch that I really enjoy using; especially for amigurumi/stuffed animals.

This pattern is written using Craft Yarn Council Standards. I use US terms on all my patterns. Designs from Grammy’s Heart creations are originals by Deborah Ziegler. Any similarities to other designs available are coincidental. I highly recommend reading through the pattern before beginning. Remember, a pattern is a guideline for you. You should always try to express yourself!
