Life Sized Octopus Crochet Pattern

Every now and then when I’m searching for the best crochet patterns to share with you I spot one that completely blows me away (like this baby dragon) and today I have one of those for you. This life-sized octopus!

This octopus crochet pattern is easy to follow and the amigurumi toy is larger than life!

Did you ever see such an amazing amigurumi toy?

Not only is it life-sized it’s also life-like too!

Just look at those suckers on the tentacles and the eyes… wow!

You can make this crochet octopus in any colourway you like

This particular octopus is called Apollo and he was designed by the super talented Jessie. He’s currently the most popular amigurumi pattern in her Etsy store and I can totally see why!

He was designed to be a life-sized snuggle buddy. Thanks to his long, floppy tentacles he can pose just like a real octopus.

He has happy, shining eyes and there are enough suckers on his tentacles to make you feel like you’ve accomplished something tremendous by the end of the project!

This is by no means a quick crochet project, but boy will it be worth it when he’s finished!

Wonderful octopus crochet pattern

This octopus is a large amigurumi toy with lots of repetitive parts to the pattern.

Similar to crocheting an afghan this is a slow and steady project which makes it a very mindful and therapeutic one too.

Apollo can be made with or without his suckers, depending on how much time you’d like to spend crocheting your gigantic new friend.

Fabulous gigantic octopus crochet pattern

This amazing toy has been designed with Miss La Motte Merino yarn in double knit (8ply) weight, with thinner yarn for his eyes.

Using merino wool will help you create a long lasting toy that will be loved by your children and then passed on through the generations.

This easy to follow pattern has lots of pictures to help you make this giant octopus crochet project

The pattern is written in US terminology and is rated as an intermediate-level project.

It is very well written and easy to follow with more than 230 photos as well as extra tips to guide you through.

As this is quite a complex project be sure you pay careful attention to the directions as you will have to switch out your hook sizes quite a few times.

You get it as a PDF that you can print at home so you don’t have to wait around for the mailman to deliver it!

Make this giant octopus as a reading buddy for your child

As you can see you can make Apollo in so many different color-ways, and he is such a fun and therapeutic project once you’ve made one you’ll be itching to make another!
