Starting in 1st ch, sl stitch 1 in each of the first two ch, then [sc 2 in each ch] x7 (this should take you to back to the body.
Slip stitch in the next st from Rd 10 of the body, then repeat from * until you have 8 legs.
Slip stitch in base of first leg to join.

With black yarn and a yarn needle, stitch the eyes and mouth, as desired.

You can either tie off weave in ends here for a finger puppet, or stuff with fiberfill and close the bottom for a teeny plushie.

Close the bottom:
In a base stitch on each leg, sc 1 (8)
Sc 2 tog around (4), and tie off, leaving a 4” tail
With a yarn needle, use the tail to stitch the remaining hold closed, then tie off and weave in the end.


  1. I just started crocheting last week and I'm making this today! SO CUTE!!! >w<

  2. Thanks! I'll be making this soon!

  3. i was wondering if i could use this pattern for a crochet class on how to make amigurumi? if class enrollment of other classes is an indicator, there would probably be only a very small number of students who would sign up.

    thank you!

    1. Hi! Yes, that would be fine! I would greatly appreciate it if you would include "Pattern by Breezybot" and a link to my blog so others could enjoy it as well! Thanks!

  4. Hi! I really love making these (my house is now filled with them haha), and I edited the pattern a little to make the tentacles a little less curly. I want to sell these on my storenvy starting in the spring, but I didn't see the pattern for sale on your etsy? I'd really like to pay you for it before my shop opens :) And of course I'd include a link to your shop and blog and in the description of the product.
