Apprx. Height 10” and width from the widest point 4”

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size 4mm
*Worsted weight yarn: White (apprx. 55g)
*Felt in small amounts: Black & White

PATTERN NOTES
  Gauge isn't all that important, but your hook and yarn choices should result in a fairly tight stitch so that the stuffing won't show through.
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.

ASSEMBLY:
  I highly recommend pinning all the pieces together before sewing anything to make sure you have all the pieces done right and that you get them in the positions you like best before sewing. It seems like alot of extra work, but this will save you ALOT of hassle.
  The only thing to pin and sew are the tentacles that go on the side.
  Eyes are constructed from felt. See pictures for guidance on how to get your eyes to look like.



Hope you enjoy your new plushie.

It's coming along very well! My grandson wanted this little guy. It is my first REAL amigurumi.
Ready to make tentacles and fins.


Thank you so very much. You've made a young man happy.
