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.

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 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!
