Inspired by Merry Monsters from The Craftster Guide to Nifty, Thrifty and Kitschy Crafts (page 139), this is a yarn octopus pumped up to the extreme I have just completed this morning. This octopus measures 105cm (that's 41.5 inches). Please enjoy my image:


I was true to the original project in the book, using a styrofoam ball, wool and felt but went VERY big!

That is one impressive cephalopod!  I love the braided tentacles and the way the yarn strands give texture to the head/body shape.  Very natural-looking coloration too.
