Oh my.  I had no idea that so many people have knit octopuses.   Here's my version.   The body of the octopus is from Jess Hutchison's Spherey pattern.   I designed the tentacles and inserted pipe cleaners so he's fully posable.  I think he turned out quite nicely. 


 I swear he's not a hexapus...there are two more legs in the back.

How cute!  I love the pipe cleaners idea.  Now I'm going to have to hunt down the pattern.  Is it a book?  Where can I get it?

So cute! I love the shade of purple you used, and the way the legs taper Smiley

That fella's too adorable!  And the wiggly legs are a fabulous touch--the pipecleaners make him come alive.
