Simply Cute Octopus Crochet Pattern


I first shared this simply cute octopus crochet pattern for sale on Ravelry in October 2018. Then I opened a limited free class via WhatsApp in November 2019. Now in 2022 I’m sharing simply cute octopus crochet pattern for free on Crochethea blog! This is a perfect crochet pattern for beginners.

I didn’t make any changes to the pattern. You can crochet the octopus amigurumi without sewing, it’s easy pattern to crochet and fast to make. I crocheted two new octopuses to take some photos for this post because my other octopuses are already sold.
