(This is a reduced-cost listing for a single PDF file containing both patterns; the one for the diver and the one for the squid amigurumi crochet toys) Deep sea divers have come a long way from their humble beginnings, where they were effectively men in barrels being submersed to recover things lost underwater, such as jewellery and treasure. Deep sea divers have since gone on to explore the bottom of the ocean and deep sea cricket is considered by many to be the national sport of Wales. Many people fear squid due to their other-worldly anatomy and powerful tentacles. However, on the whole they're a gentle species and just float around the depths of the ocean with grace and serenity. Regardless, if a squid does happen to knock on your door you are advised to politely ask them to leave. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet, chain stitch, slip stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The squid measures 35cm, or 14", from the end of the tentacle to the top of the head. The length of the head excluding arms and tentacles is 11cm or 4.5". The diver is approximate 9", or 23cm, tall.

Recommended with this pattern

  • DK weight yarn in colours of your choice (including black), safety eyes (two, large size recommended), polyfibre stuffing, 4mm crochet hook, large-eye needle
  • Pipe cleaners for the arms of the squid are optional

Hello, I'm Maffers. I've always loved soft toys and this continued beyond childhood. I'd find myself in antiques fairs snooping around for unusual toys to take home, with Friedrich Nietzsche (an angry lamb) and Quentin Breadmunch (an erudite duck) being my most prized finds. I crochet, by and large, to bring imagined toys into existence. I share some of my creations with close friends but I tend to form a steadfast bond with my toys as soon as they're finished and as such I generally can't bring myself to part with them.
