Tiny Octopus Pattern

Another Octopus.

When I finished the preemie octopus, my cat was enamoured with it – particularly the tentacles. So I thought I would knock up a little one for her to keep.

Unfortunately, due to my own tirednsss (it was 3am on a night shift and I had a mega migrane) my Octopus only has 7 tentacles so it is more like a Septopus… oh well. My cat cant count so she wont care!

Anyways, here is the pattern.

Round 1. Start by crocheting 8 singles into a Magic Circle. Ss into the first single to close the round.

Round 2. Chain 1, then Sc twice into each stitch. Ss into the first single to finish the round. (16)

Round 3. Chain 1, then Sc twice into the first stitch and once into the second stitch. Repeat to end. Ss into the first single to finish the round. (24)

Round 4 to round 9. Chain 1, then Sc into each stitch once. Ss into the first single to finish the round. (24)

Round 10. Chain 1. SC2tog then Sc in the next stitch. Repeat to end. Ss into the first single to finish the round. (16)

Round 11 to round 13. Chain 1, then Sc into each stitch once. Ss into the first single to finish the round. (16)

Embroider on a face.

Now we make the tentacles.

Round 14. Ss into the front loop only. Chain 21. In the 2nd chain from the hook, and every other chain until to you reach the end, Sc 2 times. This will create the spiral of the tentacles. When you have reached the end (you should have done around 40) Ss into the front loop only of the next stitch. You should then repeat this 7 more times to create all 8 tentacles. 

Stuff the octopus.

Round 15. Sc2tog 8 times. Ss into first stitch to finish round. (8) 

Round 16. Sc2tog 4 times. Ss into first stitch to finish round. (4)
