The resulting baby octopus will be approximately 4cm in height, length and width. You can increase or decrease their size by using different yarn and hook sizes.

This is an easy level pattern but please make sure you know the used stitches (shown lower) or look them up online before starting your octopus. The little ones take about 30 minutes to complete one.

My octopus babies were made using Moda Vera Gelato 4ply yarn, but you may use other 4ply yarns.

Gauge doesn’t really matter for this as long as the stitches are tight enough to prevent the stuffing from coming out. The googly eyes can be replaced with plastic safety eyes or yarn eyes.

Materials needed:
2.5mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn, your choice of yarn/colour
Toy stuffing
2x 7mm googly eyes or safety eyes
Yarn needle, scissors, etc

Abbreviations (US terms):
Ch - chain
Sc - single crochet
Inc - increase
Dec - decrease
Hdc - half double crochet
Sl st - slip stitch
FLO - front loop only
BLO - back loop only
