    3. The reason their isn't more to the octopus after the SC2, INC. is because you start doing the tentacles (you CH30 on that part) after the SC2, INC. What kind of yarn are you using? This really looks best with bulky yarn, but in theory it should be fine with other weights.

  3. I am absolutely in love with this pattern.I have tried so many patterns (with no luck) several times to make a octopus toy for my first grandchild and I am happy to say that I started this pattern and before I knew it it was finished, in no time I created the cutest and easiest octopus ever. Thank you so very much for this pattern. I really appreciate it so much.

  5. Thanks for this wonderful pattern! It does seem like it got mixed up with one for a squid though? I adapted the pattern a bit to give it a more realistic shape but I think sewing the mantle back was a really nice touch! In any case, I'm calling mine Luci and I'm wearing her on a hat to my regional Ocean Science Bowl.
