Pattern Description:

Sometimes... you want to crochet something zany, off the wall, and just plain crazy.

Can you say 'squid'? He's so awesome, and totally unlike anything your friends are crocheting!

Sandford makes a spectacular gift (you know, for the friend who has *everything*, except a stuffed squid), and you'll drum up oodles of conversation while you're working on him! (What are you making? A totally-awesome stuffed squid, what about you? Yeah! Beats your granny square afghan!)

As with all of my patterns, this pdf contains step-by-step photos... so you'll never get lost! And you'll get a great squid!


Gauge isn't too important- use a hook that's appropriate for your yarn thickness, and you're good to go!

  • 3 colors of Worsted Weight yarn: rust (220 yds), white (10 yds) and black (5 yds)
