Meet Ollie’s big sister, Pollie! She’s made with a bit thicker yarn that’s more purple and a little bit bigger hook. A great amigurumi project for the beginner to intermediate crocheter.

Update: this pattern is now FREE because I really want crocheters to make one (or more!) to take to their local hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. Premature babies respond well to the crocheted octopus: it helps them breathe better and feel safe. Please make one today!

TIP: A crocheter who’s made the pattern suggested crocheting a small circle (in the same manner as the first 3 rounds of the head) and sewing it to the bottom after stuffing the head instead of just sewing it closed with the yarn tail like I do ;-)
