Pattern Description:

Say hello to OLEG!

as everyone can see - Oleg is an octopus. He(tm)s a real poet and often writes 8 poems a time using his very own handmade ink. He loves to eat sea shells at his favorite italian underwater restaurant L(tm)azzurro del mare. In his octopus(tm)s garden Oleg is spending a lot of time growing sea anemones and corals. His favorite song is the Beatles(tm) Yellow Submarine.

Oleg is approximately 10,6 inches tall. He is made out of cosy 4 ply tweed, cotton wool and love. For your little octopus you can use every yarn you prefer - he's getting taller or smaller but he's always really cute!

I wrote this crochet pattern for beginners too and I tried to be very detailed in my descriptions. I also included some charts to explain what to do.
