The Octopus Squish is a fast, easy, and no-sew amigurumi, meaning it’s crocheted in one piece! The design features a round, squishy body and eight chubby little tentacles that can be pulled down to appear jellyfish-like, or curved upwards cutely for sitting. They make kawaii (“cute”) desk ornaments or keychain charms. They serve as fun kids toys or nursery decor, and are great for selling at craft fairs. They can also be used for therapy as a sensory fidget toy or stress ball, for people with anxiety, ADHD, or autism. This pocket-sized plush makes a great friend! You can use any yarn fiber, from cotton to chenille velvet, to create different textures…or any weight to create different sizes! Hold yarn doubled to make an extra big Octopus! This project looks great in all different yarn colors, including solids, ombre, self-striping, and variegated yarn. Customization is easy by adding crocheted appliques, bows, beads, buttons, eyes/facial features, and more.

So quick and easy

I love how quick they are. I love how the legs are part of the body and not sewed on after.
