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.
This pattern isn’t for the faint of heart, but it is totally doable if you know how to do these stitches:

The pattern for Claude is $6.15, and you get to download it immediately! No waiting for Snail Mail — which seems to take FOREVER sometimes.
When he is finished — GAH!! Cuteness Overload! He would make such a wonderful birthday gift, or gift for the holidays.
I even LOVE the idea of rainbow tentacles. So cool, right?
