Pattern: Common Octopus from Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh
Yarn: Leftover Cascade 220 and 220 Superwash
Needle: US5 Addi Turbo
Notes: I decided not to use chenille stems to make the legs poseable. Partly because I was worried about the sharps ends poking the gift recipient and partly because I couldn't find the ones I bought for the anglerfish. I also opted for safety eyes instead of embroidering eyes. I always feel like I knit a lovely stuffed animal then ruin it by stitching on the eyes badly. This is way easier. It's a very clever pattern. There is quite a bit of seaming. All those legs need to be stitched up. But it all goes very quickly and it quite entertaining to see the design take shape.
