The giant octopus is made using a unique technique when it comes to connecting the legs. It’s far simpler than the traditional amigurumi sewing, making putting all 8 legs together a lot easier!

Crochet Giant Octopus Supplies

  • L (8mm) crochet hook
  • Bernat Blanket yarn – 10.5-ounce size (2 balls of the main color, 1 ball of vintage white)
  • 30mm safety eyes
  • Black worsted weight yarn
  • Yarn needle
  • Poly-fil (I used a full 50 oz bag for each of them)

Crochet Giant Octopus Tips

Here are a few tips from the Left Handed Crocheter to help you get this project just right.

  1. If you tend to crochet with loose stitches, you may want to use a smaller crochet hook to reduce the amount of yarn that you use and tighten up your stitches.
  2. As you crochet the octopus head, you’ll notice it doesn’t really look all that round. Once you stuff it with the poly-fil, it will round out. If it’s not as round as you’d like it to be, put more poly-fil in and force it into the places you want it to shape it. Stuffing it extra full will help form its shape, but it will also ensure that it keeps its shape after all of the huggings and squishing your octopus is sure to get.
  3. This pattern is worked “in-the-round”, and stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted. At the end of each row, I slip stitch then chain 1 and turn it, working the next row in the opposite direction. If you’d like, you can skip turning it and continue working in the same direction throughout the pattern.

Here is how she connected the octopuses legs. Typically, you would crochet each piece separately, but then also sew them on separately. Left Handed Crocheter crochets each leg, then connects them all into a circle and attaches them to the main body of the octopus. Much simpler!

Claude the Octopus is a pattern from Kate E. Hancock on Ravelry. His head is quite big at 9 inches, but what is most impressive are his super long tentacles, making him span 45 inches across from tentacle tip to tip! We also love the addition of the bobble stitches on the tentacles!
