Here is Davy. As in Jones. So named because he is "tentacle-y" and because I was watching Pirates of the Carribean while I made him.



Family Photo: Luau the pig looks a little nervous. Cthulhu thinks he has found a long lost relative.

lovely. i made one, but with a few changes to the pattern. this is just how i started the top and bottom of the octopode.  Grin
to increase on an even circle:

ch 2.

2 sc in all. place marker.

1 sc, 2 sc in next to marker.

2 sc, 2  sc in next. to marker.

3 sc, 2 sc in next. to marker.

4 sc, 2 sc in next. to marker.

rep. inc. the first # in pattern as shown. to make a circle!

well, great pattern nevertheless, its a great idea and sooo ber cute!

(im not sure if this was the effect you'd wanted, if you wanted a curved curcle you could jsut sc every other row.  Grin)

I made 2 the other day! (My second 2, I posted my first 2 earlier in the thread, I think):


The blue one follows the pattern pretty closely and green one has a more bulbous body. Thanks again for the pattern! So cute!

Favorite moment of the year?  That commercial when m8888888 dropped her towel and jumped naked into the arms of Tony Danza.

Ooh, scary. First post after long time lurking.

This is my first ever crocheted thing Tongue  And I want to say thank you so very much for posting this patter fully spelled out. It helped tremendously. Wasn't as intimidating.
I've been wanting to learn how to crochet for years and years, but I never 'got' it when trying to learn from books. Then, last Friday I thought "Youtube!" and found some great videos that explained it so I could understand  Grin Then off I went to this pattern ^__^

She's not perfect, but I'm very proud and want to present the pentapode (couldn't fit all the 8 legs on her, lol) Debbie.
 (since I'm not yet allowed to post pics, here's a link ^^)

First off, your octopus (octopi?) are seriously cute!

(This was the post that led me to craftster, actually... Cheesy)

I'm actually in the process of making one...right now, it is (to quote) a 'unipus'. Cheesy My brother tells me it looks like a giant earbud when I put the tentacle and the head together. Cheesy:D:D

Anyway, thanks for posting the pattern!!! Cheesy

Absolutely adorable. I see to be collecting patterns for octopii at the moment - I think I`m going to end up with an enormous collection.

I`m adding this pattern to my list. Which seems to be getting longer every day!
