Shiver me timbers scallywags! This is the sailor octopus by YarnYard on youtube. I've turned him into a pirate for extra cuteness.
This little guy was so much fun to create. I used worsted weight yarn and a size H hook to make a bigger toy. I'm certainly going to make more of them. He does need shipmates!
The pattern for this is on YarnYard's Youtube channel. Most of the pattern is written in the description box. The rest of the hat and the face is gone over in the video along with the written pattern.
YarnYard has several free amigurumi tutorials that I think are extremely cute. I highly recommend trying all of them.
I hope you enjoy!
