Close our eyes to the octopus ride

July 8, 2011

Just dropping by to show off my latest creation — this super-cute mini octopus. It’s my first ever attempt at amigurumi after a long time thinking I’d like to have a go.

It turns out it’s not nearly as tricky as I’d imagined — well, this particular pattern wasn’t, at least. The tentacles were a little fiddly but the results are definitely worth the effort! The pattern suggests using 7mm safety eyes but I thought embroidered eyes would be more little-person friendly, even if the little person in question is still a bit too little to appreciate this cute critter just yet.

Pattern: Mini Amigurumi Octopus (on Ravelry)
Yarn: Yarnfair Double Knitting – Lime
Hook: 3.5mm
