As soon as I saw this pattern, I was like, “OMG how sweet is she?” I want to crochet her up. I love the eyes and the shaping of the head.

Her best friend has been done in purple and you can see that version on the pattern itself.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    How many sc should there be before starting the divide for tentacle row.

    I think the pattern needs to be re-done, there seems to be some missing rounds; round 11 is missing and round 9…? I havent worked on this yet

    1. If you look at the instructions. The same instruction is stated.

      7th and alt rnds: Ch 1. 1 sc in each
      sc around. Join with sl st to first sc.

      Means round 9 and 11 is the alt rounds. Hopefully that helps you.

    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.

    1. Thanks for the tip. I am going to work on this in the future.

  6. Kathy says:

    I cannot find the patter for Octavia the Octopus

  7. Pat says:

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

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

  8. Sammy says:

    Really wish you had a crochet along for this pattern.

  9. 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!


  10. 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?

    1. Norma says:

      I read it wrong first as well.

      7th and alt rnds:
      Ch 1. 1 sc in each sc
      around. Join with sl st to first sc.

      1. Sammy says:

        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??

      2. jenny says:

        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.
