Live Life Under The Sea With A Giant Crochet Octopus

Brittany Rae 8 May 2020

I may just take up learning to crochet after seeing how frickin' cute this octopus is.

Sorry, it's not just an octopus. My bad. It's a giant octopus, and thanks to the magic of Etsy, you can learn how to make your own.

Meet Claude.

He's a giant blue octopus, and in my opinion? He's perfect. His pattern was created by Patchwork Moose Crochet Patterns, an Etsy shop chock full of adorable animals for you to make.

Claude even has his own backstory!

According to his listing: "Claude the Octopus lives in a large cave under the sea, where he tends his award winning sea garden. On weekends he hunts high and low for new star fish to add to his collection. He's sure he'd have the biggest collection around, if his samples didn't keep wandering off."

This one's name is actually "Kraken." He was gifted to a little boy who brings him to all his swim meets!

Many reviewers noted that the pattern was easy to follow, even for beginners!

The Etsy listing has tons of details and a list of materials you'll need to make your own Claude. I personally would go for a pink and purple Claudette, how about you?
