Make your own mini amigurumi octopus with this downloadable crochet pattern.
This quick and easy project takes less than half an hour to make, and is great for using up leftover yarn in your stash. It can be made in any colour you like!
The pdf file includes a written crochet octopus pattern (US crochet terms), step-by-step photos, and assembly instructions. A printer-friendly version with fewer photos is included.
You'll also get a copy of our beginner's crochet guide, which teaches you some basic techniques used to make amigurumi. The guide has left-hand and right-hand versions.
A free version of the pattern is also available on my blog.
This is an easy amigurumi pattern that uses mostly single crochet stitches in the round. The required techniques are taught in the included beginner's guide.
Using medium (worsted) weight yarn and a 3.5mm (E) crochet hook, your octopus will be about 4 cm (1.6 in) wide. However, exact gauge is not important for this project, and you can adjust the size by using thicker or thinner yarn.
MATERIALS NEEDED (not included with purchase):
• medium (worsted) weight yarn in body colour (about 15 m / 16 yds)
• 3.5 mm (E) crochet hook
• toy stuffing
• yarn needle
• sewing needle
• black sewing thread
• 6 mm black beads for eyes

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, and use Dropbox which is is Privacy Shield certified.

• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
