i dont really have a pattern but it's really simple.
Start with a 3 or 4 chain and start crocheting around untill you get to a bowl like thing. then every few stitches you make a 2 chain instead of a 1 chain to make it bigger. Then do the opposite by putting 3 instead of 2 strings together to close up the circle( stuff cotton and close). Then make 8 13 row chains and then crochet back for tentacles.

I'm sorry for making this very confusing.

Nah, don't worry about it, thank you for sharing! I want to make little monster Christmas ornaments and this looks perfect. I'll try it out as soon as I get done with my knitting I've got going. About how big is yours?

That octopus is adorable. If he was green and had batty wings, he could be Cthulu!
