Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Tiny creatures of the sea!

Cute, miniature versions of my more realistic cephalopod designs, re- worked so each is in only 2 pieces for minimal sewing.

Octopus and Squid are both still anatomically correct while also being adorable! They take very little yarn and are quick to make. Good travel projects and great gifts.
