Materials and tools:
  • Yarn 
  • Crochet hook – 1.25mm
  • (or any other suitable for the thickness of your yarn and your knitting density).
  • Filler.
  • Stuffing tool.
  • Sewing needles (tapestry with blunt ends).
  • Scissors.
  • Eyes. I use round legs, 3 mm. Can be replaced with small buttons. Or the pupils can be tied.
  • Oil or dry pastels for toning. Brushes.

We knit the body and tentacles with one yarn without tearing, so that we have both fewer sewing parts as possible.

Without tearing off the yarns, we continue to knit the tentacles by the front loops the last row of the body.

We collect a chain of 42 air loops, starting from the second loop from the hook, we knit 2-3 sc in each of the loops, so the chain will begin to twist.

In total, we need to tie 8 tentacles. And to distribute them evenly on 20 loops of 27 rows of the body, we knit: 1 tentacle, 1 sc, 2 tentacles, 2 sc, 3 tentacles, 1 sc, 4 tentacles, 2 sc, 5 tentacles, 1 sc, 6 tentacles, 2 sc, 7 tentacle, 1 sc, 8 tentacle, 2 sc.

Without tearing off the yarns, we continue to knit the bottom. Add filler before doing this.

28 P: knit for the back half-loops of the 27th row of the body (2 sc, dec) * 5 (15)
29 P: (1 sc, dec) * 5 (10)
30 P: dec * 5 (5)
Cut the yarn, tighten the hole and hide it.

They can be made the same, but I like it better when they are different, so, it seems to me, the kids turn out to be funnier.
