Free Crochet Rainbow Amigurumi Octopus Pattern

Rainbow Crochet Octopus Pattern (2)
Free rainbow amigurumi octopus pattern is here. Today I wanted to share a beautiful amigurumi pattern with you. A very simple crochet octopus pattern that beginners can easily make. The octopus consists only of a body and tentacles. First we make the body and then we make the tentacles one by one and fix them. As you can see, how easy it is, right? To make the amigurumi octopus like a rainbow, red heart super saver retro stripes yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook are used. After completing the octopus, you fix the 16 mm safety eyes and then embroider its mouth with the help of black thread. That’s it, crochet octopus is ready.
