Ingrid the Octopus Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

My son Benjamin is drawn to the sea. He absolutely LOVES animals, but sea animals are of particular interest to him. I was immediately excited when he asked me to make him an octopus. It was a welcome challenge. I mean – TENTACLES. Gangly, dangly tentacles. Benjamin was especially excited that she actually has a beak underneath where he can feed her! I hope you love her as much as we do! So without further ado, here is my Ingrid the Octopus amigurumi crochet pattern. You can find her pattern up on my Etsy shop!

Here is a sneak peak at her story –

Her full name is Ingrid, but friends call her Inky,
She’s classy and quick with a color quite pinky.
She’s known for her confident, bold kind of way
But it wasn’t always like that I daresay

For when she was young, she was ruthlessly teased
For the way she would ink when she was displeased
And many would laugh at her big squishy head
She would approach each new day with anguish and dread

But after some time, she happened upon
An old sea turtle off the coast of Taiwan
The turtle took note of Inky’s mind-state
And quickly set out to set all those lies straight…
