Amigurumi Octopus Reviewed by Eve Klopf on 2013-09-21 *****
Good directions & easy to make. I made it with thicker yarn so that it would turn out larger, which worked out fine. Attaching the legs was the only tricky part; I ended up connecting them together and then attaching them as a single piece to the head.
