R4: 2 sc, Inc 6 times [24]
R5: 3 sc, Inc 6 times [30]

rd sc, skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next stitch, repeat on entire round.
Bind off.
Bottom of octopus:
R1: 6 sc in a MR [6]

R8: 6 sc, Inc 6 times [48]
Leave a long end for assembly. Insert the eyes between R12 and R13 with 8 sc in between.
Embroider a mouth and cheeks under the eyes.
Tentacles:
Make 11 tentacles with Rainbow Gold – Natural White (002), Rainbow Silver – Antique Rose
(061) and Rainbow Melange – Light Rose (17).
3 tentacles: 1 in each color:
R1: ch 31, begin in 2
nd ch from hook: 3 sc in each ch [90]
3 tentacles: 2 x Natural White (002), 1 x Antique Rose (061):

3 tentacles: 2 x Natural White (002), 1 x Melange – Light Rose (17)

nd ch from hook: 1 sl st in each ch [50]
Leave a long end on each tentacle for assembly on the bottom. This will be done before the
bottom is sewn on to the octopus.
Place the tentacles randomly on the bottom. Because you worked back over the chain
stitches, you will have two threads on each tentacle, so we’ll use both of them.
Thread the 1
st
thread on needle and pull it through the bottom from the right side. Unthread
the needle and thread the 2
nd
thread on needle and repeat. Bind the treads thoroughly
together and cut the ends. Make sure the tentacles are thoroughly attached, so they can’t fall
off. Do this with all the tentacles (see photo).
Stuff the octopus, but not too firm, and attach the bottom with the tentacles on the inside of
R19.
