Ed the Kraken Amigurumi

This pattern is available for $6.00 USD buy it now

Ed the Kraken was once the most fearsome beast of the sea, his giant tentacles capable of tearing apart even the largest of ships. These days, though, he mostly just wants to hang out by his favourite lighthouse and enjoy some peace and quiet. Even sea monsters need a break sometimes!

Ed the Kraken is the perfect gift for lovers of sea monsters, pirates, and all things nautical. And this simple pattern is made from super bulky yarn so your kraken will be extra big and squishy!

This crochet pattern PDF has been tested and includes 15 pages of pictures and detailed instructions to make your very own Ed the Kraken.
