Happy April Fools! Um, I wish I had thought of something tricky or clever for this post, but you see, I have been distracted.
IT. HAS. RISEN.
The octopus crochet pattern is here. I didn't sleep much last night, but it was totally worth it. I have wanted to release this for about four years... a sorta-realistic octopus with curly tendril-like arms.
Any weight of yarn can be used for this, it will just change the size of the creature. For an octopus with a large egg-sized head, I used chunky weight yarn, a G hook for the head and a J hook for the rest. Just make sure your smaller hook size is small enough to prevent holes in the fabric so the head stuffing doesn't come spilling out. No one likes to see that.
Please enjoy, and spread the cephalopod love!
