Todays daily new amigurumi free crochet pattern is Amigurumi Octopus.
I want to give you some informations about this pattern ;
Size: 17 cm / 7 inches
Skill level: intermediate
- DK (8 ply) weight cotton – I used Novita Freesia (100% cotton; 50 g / 134 m)
- contrasting color (in the same approx weight) for the ruffle
- crochet hook 2.5 mm
- polyester fiberfill
- black thread for stitching the eyes
- darning and embroidery needles
sc – single crochet,
hdc – half double crochet,
dc – double crochet,
st(s) – stitch(es),
rep – repeat
- WORK IN CONTINUOUS ROUNDS. DO NOT JOIN OR TURN UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED.
- IT WOULD BE WISE TO USE A STITCH MARKER AND PLACE IT IN THE FIRST STITCH OF EACH ROUND TO MARK THE BEGINNING OF IT.
- LEAVE EACH PIECE A LONG TAIL FOR SEWING.
Use the main yarn. Crochet from top to bottom.
1: Start 6 sc in a magic ring 
2: Work 2 sc in each st around 
3: (Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times 
4: (Sc in each of next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times 
5: (Sc in each of next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times 
6: (Sc in each of next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times 
7: (Sc in each of next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times 
8-12: Sc in each st around
13: (Sc in each of next 5 sts, sc2tog) rep 6 times 
14-15: Sc in each st around
16: (Sc in each of next 4 sts, sc2tog) rep 6 times 
17-18: Sc in each st around
19: Working in the back loops only, (sc in each of next 3 sts, sc2tog) rep 6 times 
NB! Later the little ruffle will be crocheted in the front loops.
Now let`s make the tentacles. The first tentacle is shorter, the second one is longer. This gives a fun look.
The entire round is crocheted in the front loops only, the back loops are left for crocheting the next round. Marking the first back loop with a stitch marker makes it easier to find the beginning of the next round.
20: Ch 25. Starting in the second chain from hook, (2 sc in next st, sc in next st) 12 times, sc in each of next 3 front loops. Ch 35. Starting in the second chain from hook, (2 sc in next st, sc in next st) 17 times, sc in each of next 3 front loops. Repeat the instructions 4 times in total to form 8 tentacles.
Stuff the body.
21: Working in the back loops of the previous round, (sc in next st, sc2tog) rep 8 times 
22: Sc2tog around 
Cut the yarn leaving a long tail. Close the hole and weave in yarn end.
Use the contrasting color. Hold the body upside down and start in the first front loop of round 19. Pull up a loop and ch 1. * Sc + hdc in the same loop, 3 dc in the next loop, hdc + sc in the next loop. Repeat 9 more times from *, only now start crocheting in the next stitch.
Knot and hide the yarn ends of the ruffle.
Embroider the face.
