What’s better than an amigurumi Octopus? How about a Chunky Amigurumi Octopus!

People have really been loving these Chunky Octopi! At the last market that I done, I sold them all!

I love that they work up quickly using Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn. I used the colors Coral Blossom and Buttercup. There are so many different colors of this yarn that you could make so many different ones! You could make a whole army of Octopi!

About the Felt Eyes

For those of y’all wondering about the felt eyes. I have both, a tutorial for making them and I’m also selling them too!

I use my Cricut to make my felt eyes. It is really an easy project to do. If you would like to learn how, I have a full written, picture & video tutorial that you can find HERE. These go great on all of your amigurumi projects. I absolutely love using them!

Or, if you don’t have a Cricut, you can purchase the felt eyes in my Etsy shop HERE. I have them available in both the white and holographic.

Things you will need:


  • My Octopus measures approx. 5” tall and 7” across bottom of legs.


  • Mc = magic circle / ring
  • Sc = single crochet
  • Sc2tog = single crochet 2 stitches together
  • T = turn
  • Sk = skip
  • Sl st = slip stitch
  • Ch = chain
  • St = stitch (es)

Pattern –


Round 1: 6 sc in mc (6)

Round 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)

Round 3: * sc, 2 sc in next st* repeat * to * around (18)

Round 4: * sc in 2 st, 2 sc in next st* repeat * to * around (24)

Round 5: * sc in 3 st, 2 sc in next st* repeat * to * around (30)

Round 6: * sc in 4 st, 2 sc in next st* repeat * to * around (36)

Round 7 – 10: sc in each st around (36)

If your head seems to have a point to the top, don’t worry because as you stuff it and finish it, it will go down. But, I also put this side on the bottom and attach the legs to it.

Round 11: * sc in 4 st, sc2tog* repeat * to * around (30)

Round 12: * sc in 3 st, sc2tog* repeat * to * around (24)

Stuff the Head

Round 13: * sc in 2 st, sc2otg* repeat * to * around (18)

Round 14: * sc, sc2tog* repeat * to * around (12)

Round 15: sc2tog all the way around (6)

Cut yarn and close the hole.


ch 10, slip st into 1st st to form a ring

*ch 10, 3 sc in 2nd st from hook, 3 sc in each st down.

sc into the ring to attach the leg.

Repeat from * 7 more times until you have a total of 8 legs

Leave a long tail and use it to attach to the head of the octopus. I attach the legs to the end that seems like it has a little point, so the bottom of the head is actually the top

I use a hot glue gun to attach my felt eyes. You could also use fabric glue or use scrap black yarn to embroider eyes.

Weave in ends!
