I was recently in the zombie swap. My partner had a necklace on her wist of a zombie octopus. My partner also just said that she would love plush. I was so excited about it, but wasn't exactly sure how to recreate it. I decided to recreate it in crochet!

I've seen this pattern for a while and just loved it, but wasn't sure how I could make it my own.
Here's the pattern: http://www.etsy.com/listing/55689632/pattern-for-voluptuous-octopus-no-4
For the record, I highly recommend the pattern! It's awesome!

So, I used bulky weight yarn. I think my favorite feature might be the eye that's popping out. I also personally really love the head wound. The brain is actually just a pink i-cord that I just curled up and sewed to the head.


Side view: You can see a little bit of his stitches on one of his tentacles. Smiley


From what I hear my partner liked it, so I'm happy! Smiley
C&C welcome!!

Brilliant!  Is it wrong to say a zombie is cute?  And the name is genius!
