You Can Crochet Your Own Adorable Giant Octopus and I Need One

I NEED THIS! He is is Claude the Octopus, and he is absolutely adorable!

Claude is available as an instant PDF pattern download on the Patchwork Moose on Etsy.

He, UNFORTUNATELY is not a complete project to purchase, but that’s kinda better — you can make him YOURSELF. Talk about feeling accomplished!!

He is a GIANT Octopus! When completed, he is 9 inches tall and 45 inches wide from tentacle to tentacle.

Working on Clade now. What is the reason for stuffing the head on round 31? I find it bulky and cumbersome and rolls away from me.
