    I just wanted to let everyone know, that I too was on my 4th tentacle and wanted to make sure I was going to have enough stitches for all. If you stitch into the last last hdc2tog stitch as your first hdc2tog you have enough space for another tentacle.

    You didn’t help anyone with their questions that I can see. I too am stuck at the 7 tentacle point.

      The customer service of Yarnspirations is open for emails or phone calls. Have they not been able to help you?

    Mikey,
    Trying to catch up and so love this Octopus. Is this the same as the pink one that Daniel is loving on The Crochet Crowd Facebook page? I get it now!
    You guys always make me smile!

    I just reached the tentacle part of this pattern, and it looks to me that it will only have 7 tentacles….. I am afraid this makes me a bit nuts… why would it not be the correct number for an octopus. I think I am going to have to take it all apart now and redo it starting with a count of 8 so I can have 8 tentacles.

    Hi Mikey! Thanks for this I can’t wait to start it. When I downloaded the pattern, round #9 appears to be gone. Is it my computer?

        PLEASE HELP ME! excuse my noobie self, what does alternate mean exactly? I have done many Google searches, read books and blogs, with little help. I have had to unravel and re-do this over and over. am I supposed turn, putting 7th rnd on top on thr 6th rnd? or do the 7th rnd then turn, putting the 8th rnd on the 7th? so confused.or just keep going in the same direction??

          This is done in rounds not rows. You do not turn it. you just keep going round and round.

          Alternate means just that. (every other round)

          7th 9th 11th are alternate rounds since the pattern shows you differing 8th 10th and 12th rounds.

          To make the pattern clearer to yourself read it from start to finish at least three or four times before you start to crochet. That way you will understand what it wants you to do.
