Thanks so much for the pattern! It's darling!
This is my first amigurumi (or however the freak it's spelled!) thing I made. I'm a bit disappointed that you can see the stuffing a bit through the holes. I guess I need to use a smaller hook or something?? It's pretty cute, though... now what to do with it?!

I will have to say I love this pattern and I am so glad I came across it cause the octopus is adorable. Although I totally messed up the tentacles cause there is a huge gap on the front making him look like he's missing a tentacle or two. Here is my octopus on my boyfriend's head, (I made him a little crown at the insistence of my bf, cause he wants me to make many many more), the picture opportunity was too much to pass up. LOL.

NerdyCrochetGal- I love his crown! And, the gap between his tentacles just gives him more character! Nice job!

I've been meaning to make one of these as a gift for a little girl who just became an "older sister." I have gifts for the new baby and I don't want her to feel left out. I need to get some cool yarn to make one in...

Guess I'll hit the craft store tomorrow!
