Tentacles


(Make 8)


Chain 2, 7sc in second chain from hook. 1sc in each stitch around (7) around 18 times (or until you've reached you're desired length. Fasten off, leaving a long tail to sew to the base of the Octopus.


Assembly!


Safety eyes: You can place the eyes wherever you'd like, but for my Octopus I positioned them at row 11, approximately an inch apart. Make sure you're happy with their position before you snap the fisher onto place. Once it's on, those eyes won't come off!




Stuff the Octopus firmly with polyfil. Using the long tail from the tentacles, sew them onto the base of the Octopus. With either your crochet hook or yarn needle, sew the base to the head using a whip stitch. Weave in any loose ends.
