Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi Octopus HolderBy Candace – 7 Comments
|No, it doesn’t hold your amigurumi octopus. It’s a spiral-constructed amigurumi octopus that holds your stuff.
I love doing my nails, and having something small to stuff a few manicures’ worth of cotton balls in is a lot more convenient and cute than letting them hang loose in my bag of supplies. You can stuff yours with tissues, larger beads, or anything else that will fit or you can stuff it with fiberfill and draw the hole closed for a plain old amigurumi.
Body: 3 1/4″ (8.5 cm) diameter
Tentacles: 5 1/2″ (14 cm) long
Bulky Weight Yarn (40 yards)
Stitch Marker (or scrap of contrasting yarn)
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
Rounds 1-4 measure 2 1/4″ (5.5 cm) in diameter
