Hi  Smiley  I've been asked if i would post a tutorial on one of my amigurumi animal patterns, so here's the pattern for an amigurumi baby octopus ( bottom left in pic!)



I hope you like him, the baby octopus is the easiest pattern I've designed and people who have recently learnt to crochet can usually make him.  here's a slightly closer shot of him



One of my friends has crocheted 4 of them in really bright colours and has them 'living' in her bathroom, they look really great :-)

Such a cute little octopus.  My sister has a rubber ducky themed bathroom; I may have to make her some octopi to keep the duckies company.
