I don't know either, I was asking.
This is Opus vol. 4.
He has no name or personality yet because he's a present for my brother's new girlfriend. She liked his seven-legged model so much she wanted one of her own.
I made him at work, and now he's hanging out with my yarn pile.
I actually wrote down
the pattern this time as I went. If there's enough general interest, I'll piece all of my little scrap pieces of paper together and post it up. Pattern Town!materials
Some yarn scraps (acrylic works best)
Crochet Hook (I used a 3.5mm one)
safety eyeshow to do it
start with a magic loop ring.
Row 1: 6 sc into magic loop (pull tight) (6sc)
Row 2: 2 sc into each sc around (12 sc)
Row 3: 1 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (18 sc)
Row 4: 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (24 sc)
Row 5: 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (30 sc)
Row 6: 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (36 sc)
Row 7: 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc repeat around (42 sc)
Row 8- Row 12: 1 sc in each sc around (42 sc)
Row 13: 5 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (36 sc)
Row 14: 1 sc in each sc around (36 sc)
Row 15: 4 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (30 sc) start filling and put in eyes here
Row 16: 3 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (24 sc)
Row 17: 2 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (18 sc)
Row 18: 1 sc, 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (12 sc)
Row 19: 1 sc in next 2* repeat around (6 sc)
stuff stuff stuff! finish off.
Make 8. Only place them up a bit higher than I did if you actually want to get 8 on the little guy.
Start with magic loop ring
Row 1: 6 sc in magic loop, pull tight
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc repeat around (12 sc)
Row 3: 1 sc in each sc around (12 sc)
Row 4: 3 sc, 1 sc in 2 sc*, 3 sc, 1 sc in 2 sc* (8 total)
finish off the legs and then sew them on the body at your place of choice.
By not finishing off the row (only 8 scs) , it makes them slanted and they're easier to attach.
*denotes a decrease. That means do 1 sc split over the next 2 sc.
That's it. It's mondo easy and uber basic. This is not at all how I write out patterns when I make them up, so if it doesn't make sense, let me know. If you make one, please post it so I can see it. I love them. I also very geekily created a flickr group for them. Make one and join the ranks! http://flickr.com/groups/octopusrevolution/
***This pattern is free for you to do with what you will, but please don't sell it or sell things that are direct copies of what have been posted here..Copy away, that why they're here, but c'mon! I'm broke! If anybody's bank account should be growing, it should be mine. It's pathetic.***
