My octopus! First crochet project in a really long time. You can sort of see the stuffing. And the eyes are sewn on crooked. And the legs are sort of lopsided. But my friend, who I made it for, liked it.

Yeah, I think I do. I haven't crocheted in ages. I mean, I try to do it really tight and stuff, 'cause I figured that'd be necessary for something you're going to stuff, but I couldn't get it tight enough, I guess. But I think I might crochet weird. A girl was watching me crochet a camera case at school (same yarn!), and she said I crochet like a knitter. I do knit more though, so that makes sense. Do you think using a smaller hook would help though? Maybe?

Yes, using a smaller hook should help with the holes that are appearing

I think I crochet differently too, I don't do it the same as my mom or my Grammy did....But I do use a smaller hook sometumes. I wouldn't go to small. maybe a size smaller.

Yeah, I just used whatever size it said on the yarn. Next time I'll try one smaller.

Here's mine!

I just started crochet a couple of weeks ago, so it took me a loong time and after two legs I was completely fed up with it. Grin Still, now that he's finished I'm very proud and think he's cute. Thanks a lot for the pattern!



Don't mind the terrible state my walls are in, I'll be moving out in a couple of months.

Wow, this is amazing. I can't believe you've been crocheting for only a couple weeks, it's so wonderful.

Here is my octopode!!! Next time I will use a thicker yarn and a smaller needle. It's for my boyfriend's sister - it's her birthday today!
