Ollie the Octopus Reviewed by beppie on 2013-01-21 ****
I used normal needles and seamed the tenctales, worked great! (i only have a really long circular needle). The octopus was greated with large cheers! Thank you for the pattern!

I made this Glocktopus for a friend's son. There are pipe cleaners in each arm to hold the little plastic revolvers. The eyes are buttons with the crocheted ring from the pattern sandwiched in between.

This pattern was great - it's only the second amigurumi I've made and it came out well. Legs were indeed a bit tedious but the result was a hit with the 1-year-old I made it for! I added a smiling mouth and it came out so cute I almost didn't want to gift it ;)

I made this for my 3yo son. He LOVES it. I preferred different eyes so I crocheted different size circles. I also left the front 4 legs open in order to fit 4 fingers in to make him a puppet! I also put pipe cleaners in the back 4 legs to make them bendable.

Adorable - works up quickly - like knitting a pair of gloves with VERRRRRY long fingers. My 16-month-old graddaughter and 20-month-old grandson are delighted with Ollie, as are their older brothers. I guess I'll have to make two more.

Ollie the Octopus Reviewed by Gail Goulden on 2009-04-20 *****
This was a fun project... I made it with leftover yarn... each leg is a different colour and it is very unique - my 6 yr old granddaughter loves it!

Great pattern that worked with no problems. Legs were a little tedious but what can you do, it's an octopus!
