Is it possible NOT to smile at an octopus in a bow tie? I think not! A young child will be giddy with pride to make a fuzzy friend like this for him or herself. Or, create this wooly guy to match your friend’s nursery and gift it your favorite stack of children’s books.

« 38 yards super bulky yarn per octopus. I used Madelinetosh ASAP in Courbet’s Green and Betty Draper Blue.

« Stuffing or cotton balls

« 2 buttons for eyes or thread for french knot eyes (if recipient is under 3)

« Desired needle to attach or make eyes.

« Ribbon or fabric for bow tie.
