Mini Crochet Octopus Plush – Free Pattern

Mini Crochet Octopus Plush Pattern - Free Pattern by Madi Paris exclusively for The Stitchin' Mommy | www.thestitchinmommy.com This pattern was designed by Madi Paris, exclusively for The Stitchin’ Mommy

Around this time of year, everything outside just looks so boring and covered in snow at home, lacking much color so I decided to liven things up and make some tiny colorful octopuses! I started with one but thought they were so cute that I made 4 colorful friends for the original one! I wrote this pattern myself so if there are any mistakes, please let me know and I’ll try to fix or clarify the issue.  -Madi
