Knitted Amigurumi Octopus

Once I finished the sweater, I decided it was time to move on to stuffed animals. “Dandy Sir Cephalopod” seemed like the perfect little toy for a baby: lots of legs to grab, and the right size to hold onto. I left off the “dandy” details (top hat, monocle, and moustache) because they didn’t seem baby appropriate. I used some soft blue yarn leftovers that I got from Alice.

Five little leggies

The legs were a little fiddly to start, but ultimately this guy went together quickly and without issue. Very satisfying project!

Legs are attached to the body! Now I just need to finish up the body, stuff it, and embroider some eyes.
