Crochet Amigurumi Octopus Baby Pattern

You can crochet an easy-cute octopus by your own hands in just a few hours even when you’re a beginner. Let’s start!

1. Materials

These are the materials that I used. You can replace them with other materials: Yarn (white, light pink, light blue), Crochet hook, Fiberfill, Plastic Eyes.


  1. Choose the right size of yarn and crochet hook. Here I used crochet hook No.2.
  2. It is recommended to use yarn with safe materials for babies (I use 100% organic cotton)
  3. Should use plastic eyes with latches to ensure the safety of the baby. If you can, use different colored wool to embroider.

2. Abbreviations

R: Round

X : sc (single crochet)

Ch: chain

MR: Magic ring

V : increase (2 single crochets from 1 loop)

A : decrease (2 single crochets into 1 loop)

3. Doing
