Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi Octopus Holder

By 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.

Skill Level:

Finished Size:
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
